A Message From The Principal
Dear Northside Families,
Welcome parents and students to the start of the 2017-18 school year! I hope that you had the opportunity to create wonderful memories with the ones you love over the summer months. This year promises to be filled with engaging and challenging learning opportunities for all of our students. Northside School is a learning community that values high expectations for both academics and behavior. The safety of all students is of utmost importance. Our staff and students routinely practice safety drills on a regular basis. We believe in a fair and consistent approach that encourages students to be responsible individuals. At Northside, it is our goal to encourage and grow the minds of our students. We recognize that each child is unique and holds special talents. We work to unlock those talents and give each child an opportunity to shine.
A successful education is a joint effort between the school and the home, which is why family and community are the fundamentals of our school. Communicating effectively with parents and the community is an important way to keep families informed of class activities, PTA and school events. Our school's focus will continue towards "Success for Every Student" and working towards the character values of showing respect, having integrity and being kind. When our students, staff and community work on displaying these values, then the foundation of our learning community strengthens.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to another outstanding year with our returning students, and look forward to developing life-long relationships with our incoming kindergarten families. We thank you for your continued support, and will work tirelessly in return for that trust. I look forward to seeing all of the children on September 6th!
With Warm Regards,
Mr. Frank Mortillaro, Principal
