May PBIS Assembly

North Winners are good sports and so are their teachers. Take a look at the fun...



Members of the NW Sixth Grade class participated in a community service project of Wednesday, April 12. They cleaned up the NW Mustang Garden, removing last year's plant materials and leaves, making way for the daffodils and tulips beginning to bloom.


On May 22, twenty-nine students helped mulch the garden to prepare it for the summer. Thanks to all of the volunteers for moving two truckloads of mulch in record time!

Wellness Committee

The committee finished the year by recommending that students and staff implement sections of the School Wellness Policy that covers food eaten outside of school breakfast and lunch.

We are now joining other schools across the country in having school rewards and special events promote healthy habits. We encourage non-food “treats” for special events, but foods that meet Smart Snacks guidelines will be permitted. We regret to say that homemade foods are no longer allowed in school. Ingredients may be brought to school and prepared here.
