Kelsey the facility dog at north
This is Kelsee, our amazing facility dog! We obtained Kelsee from Circle Tail, an organization renowned for training exceptional service dogs, and she is a beloved member of our school family! Facility dogs like her are specially trained to offer physical, social, cognitive, or emotional support in places like schools, classrooms, and courthouses. Having a dog at school can boost self-esteem, enhance problem-solving skills, encourage physical activity, foster responsibility, and relieve stress and anxiety. Be sure to ask your child all about her and say hi if you see her at school!  She’s a sweetheart!

Teacher Work/Preparation Days

By contract, teachers begin the year with two workdays.  Since we have arranged an Open House prior to the start of school for you to meet the teacher and learn the classroom expectations, we ask that visits to the school during the teacher work/in-service days be for emergency purposes only, or if you have received an invitation from a staff member.  On August 5, 6 and 7, they will be working feverishly to prepare their classrooms and materials.  Thanks for understanding and we hope to see you during our Open House hours.

Think Straight A’s:  Academics, Attitude, Attendance


At North Elementary, Every Child is a S.T.A.R.-Image of a yellow star

A Student Taking Academic Responsibility!

I am Responsible, I am Respectful, I am Safe, I am a Problem Solver!

At North Elementary we believe your child needs to possess all three "A" characteristics in order to thrive in their educational career:
Attendance - Students cannot learn if they are not in school. Please make every attempt to make sure your child arrives to school on time and ready to learn!
Attitude - A positive attitude goes a long way! We encourage our students to have an "I CAN" attitude during their school day and beyond. Our current Positive Behavior Supports system of rewarding students for exhibiting expected behaviors is also key for the respectful attitude displayed in our building. We live by the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated!
Academics - Students at North receive a firm foundation of academic skills to build their future learning. We believe academic success is not a race - it's a journey!
