Take Our New Principal Survey!

The PTO’s mission is to work hand in hand with Northside families and staff to create a healthy and safe learning community for ALL students. Given we have new administration under Duy Nguyen this year, we are reaching out in this survey to Northside families to gather input for Duy not only for our first PTO meeting and Meet the Principal event September 11, but also to inform the year ahead.

Please take the survey, then email this around or share it on Facebook – thank you for your engagement with our school!

Good-Bye to Mr. Craney and See You Next Year, Northside!

Today was a bittersweet day at Northside. We bid farewell to our beloved principal Roz Craney as he leaves to serve the school community in DeForest as elementary school principal. As a parting gift, the students of Northside partnered with the PTO to create a memento for Roz to take with him to remember his years at Northside.

Pictured below, each Northside student stamped their fingerprint on a framed canvas to represent the Northside children who have flourished under Mr. Craney’s administration. This gift was presented at the 4th Grader Farewell Assembly this morning. We wish Roz all the best and thank him for his years of truly inspiring leadership and dedicated service.

Meanwhile, a huge and well-deserved congratulations to ALL our incredible Northside students for a great 2017-18 school year. We will miss our graduating 4th-graders and can’t wait to meet our incoming Kindergartners in the fall!

Parents, students, families, teachers, staff, and volunteers, thank you thank you for the many hours you have selflessly invested in our school. Thank you for making Northside a great place, and have a most wonderful summer!

Teacher Appreciation Week

A huge shoutout to our talented, dedicated, and generous teachers and staff who give their all to make Northside a great place for our kids and families. Northside wouldn’t be the warm, inspiring place it is without you.

Thanks also to our Staff Appreciation Committee for helping the PTO show its gratitude by bringing in lunch on Tuesday and breakfast goodies on Thursday morning.

If you see a teacher, thank a teacher!

Great 1st PTO Meeting!

Big thanks the parents and kiddos who made it out to our first PTO meeting on September 12. Great to see all those smiling faces!
