North Elementary

Creating an environment where learning is powerful!

Hang in there.....

You all are doing amazing. Great things are still taking place at North Elementary. Thank you for all that each of you do daily to help all of our students. We have already had several celebrations with end of year DRA data. We are anxious to see how the students do and how many goals are met. Remember you can wear jeans on Monday and Tuesday for STAAR testing. I did a phone call message that will go out to parents this afternoon reminding them no visitors next week and we are asking that they not drop off lunches on Monday and Tuesday.


Third grade teachers we know your kids will do amazing. Everyone has worked so hard to help ensure that they have the skills and knowledge to do the best that they can.


Third and second grade teachers, thank you for your help with the route change for early buses. It has made a huge difference in the main hallways. Thank you all teachers for helping us with ensuring that all students are following the CHAMPS expectations for the hallway. Please make sure that during recess if you have duty you are closely monitoring student behavior. We know everyone is getting tired, students included, but these procedures are in place to ensure student safety so thank you!

  • Things to be covered:

*Introduce Teams for the 2016-2017 School Year (If you are moving grade levels you will present with your new team for next year. If you are not returning we will have you help in the main hallway with various areas.)

*Gillaspie/Zackary - Summer Reading Information

*Grade level share ideas or things parents can do at home to help students be ready for that grade level.

*Third grade....just share a little info about STAAR and what it is not to remove any worry or stress from parents from misinformation they may have heard.


  • We will have punch cards that parents will get punched for each session and room they visit. Once it is filled they will be able to get food....we are thinking nacho's again.
