Principal's Message

Dear North Parents, Family and Friends,

We are thrilled to be teaching your son/daughter this school year. Our goal is to provide our students with the best education in a safe learning environment. We love teaching your children, and have only the highest expectations for their performance. Our students participate in a comprehensive curriculum, which emphasizes reading, writing, mathematics, problem solving, and respect for themselves and all others. 

We are excited to tell you that we have begun our journey to become a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. This curriculum is based on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey.  It focuses on leadership habits that will encourage and grow each individual child’s strengths. We are overjoyed to be sharing these habits with your child; we want your students to feel a sense of belonging when they enter the school doors, and feel supported as they strive to reach the high expectations set for them.
