It's Spirit Week for United Way!

Please remember the schedule below this week and remember to send your child with cash or check, made payable to North Pointe Elementary. We hope this week is fun-filled for our students while donating to a worthy cause.

Remember, the top 2 classrooms who raise the most money will win a popcorn party and double recess!

AND... if we meet our school goal of $4300, Mr. Rash and I will KISS A PIG! It's going to be a fun week!

Congratulations to our Student Council Winners

On Friday last week, students in K-5 watched videos from our 3rd-5th grade students who ran for Secretary, Vice President and President, and cast their votes. Let me tell you that these videos are INCREDIBLE! I was blown away at the creativity, passion, and excitement these student have for our school! So much so, that I thought everyone should see them! They are linked below.

Congratulations to the following winners. These students will represent our school body this year and meet with our Project Challenge teacher, Mrs. Savanna Brown, to discuss school improvements and service projects. We cannot wait to see the great things our students do in our community this year!

"Buzz" Worthy Wednesdays!

Every Wednesday, I announce the names of students who are 'caught' doing the right thing. These students are nominated by our staff throughout the week. I announce them on the Wednesday morning announcements and they get to come to my office to choose a prize from my prize drawer! I will feature them in our North Pointe newsletters so you can share in our pride!

Max Panicerschi

Max Panicerschi from Ms. Hill's 5th grade class, saw several election posters that had fallen and he fixed every single one of them without being asked! Thanks Max!

Emiliano Ramirez

Mrs. Cromer nominated Emiliano Ramirez. She said, "We were walking down the hallway after lunch and he found a dollar that someone had dropped. He said he thought that it was probably someone's ice cream money, and he was right! We found the owner and he was so happy. He was showing honesty and good character by picking up the dollar and turning it in to me! Great job, Emiliano!"

Jakub Capps

Ms. Shumaker wrote, "Jakub was walking between classes when a younger student passed him in the hallway and seemed to be lost. Jakub asked the little girl where she was trying to go and she told him to the school nurse. He walked her part way there and gave her good instructions to guide her the rest of the way. Thank you, Jakub, for being a good leader and role model!"

Save the Date: November 12th is our LIVE Virtual Silent Auction!

Hello, NP families.

Fall is here! I cannot believe we are nearing the two month mark of being back in school. Fall brings so many fun activities for families and means it is time for our largest PTO Fundraiser – the Silent Auction. This is the major fundraiser that supports all of the PTO’s operating expenses that we provide for the staff and students at North Pointe. Some of these include teacher reimbursements for classroom supplies, renting the copy machine, purchasing a new laminator and supplies, the Woot Woot Wagon (a special cart filled with treats for teachers once a month), new T-shirts for all staff, Terrific Kid and Author’s Café awards, special author visits, and more. Your support in the Silent Auction goes a long way!

The other large fundraiser we hold at North Pointe is our Step It Up/Day of Awesomeness Campaign. Proceeds from this event go directly toward a specific project. Some of these have included new playground equipment and shade structure, basketball court, new literacy material, and school beautification.

I hope you all will join us for our Facebook Live Kickoff for our auction on November 12. It is going to be full of entertainment and a fun way for you to see the items. The auction will go live after the event and stay open until November 19. Just in time for some Christmas shopping!

Thank you again for all of your support!! As always, I’m open to any questions or feedback.
