Principal's Message

Happy November Parents!

November is a month in which we think about gratitude. We often think about the negative or what can be changed, but I challenge each of us as we roll into the holiday season to think of things that we are thankful for. I, personally, am thankful for my son and my family. I am truly thankful for being able to serve the North community. Your children (my children and our children) bring joy into my life each day. I am thankful for leading the faculty and staff at North Middle High School. I am always impressed on how many strides we are making each month. Please be sure to thank a teacher this month.

I wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving!
