Dear North Families,

Happy August,

Hope everyone is staying safe and staying healthy! We are looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

Please be reminded that there are tours next week for incoming 4th graders, as well as new 5th graders to our school community!  This means any 5th grader who has never set foot in the North (Cohort C students, home-schooled students and/or students returning from private schools).   Please see the attached schedule.  I have been in touch with many of you who may be on vacation, so please do not worry!! Students and families will still have the opportunity to tour the school during North Classroom Visits on Tuesday, August 31st (5:00PM-6:00PM).

Classroom assignments will be posted in Aspen next Monday afternoon, August 9th.  Based on your child’s classroom teacher, please follow the tour schedule as best as possible.  It is very important to note that Summer CARES will still be in session; therefore, we are following summer school/CARES safety protocols and masks must be worn during the tours. We will do our best to maintain social distancing during the tours.  Parents/guardians and families may wait out front and students will exit via the front door after the 30 minute tour.

School Supply Lists have been emailed, as well as posted on our North web page.  Please let us know if you need support/guidance with these items.

Our Northside PAC has generously purchased Homework Folders for all students to stay organized.  Classroom teachers will provide Assignment Notebooks for all students on the first day of school.  We stress the use of these items to foster ongoing home/school communication, as well as to support organizational skills and responsibility for all students.

More information will follow next week!  For now, please try to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  We have a new Facebook page, so please check us out!!  Also, take a moment to review the information for AmazonSmile-- it is an easy way to help out the Northside PAC!!

Looking forward to a sunny August (no more rain!)

Please reach out if you have any questions for us!

Dear North Families,

Summer is in full swing! This note is a quick July update and a save the dates for a tour of the North (for 4th graders and new students). Please see the attached schedule for the week of August 9th-August 13th.

There are alternate dates for those who cannot participate at their designated time.

We plan to share classroom assignments in Aspen on Monday, August 9th.  Once that information is given to families, you will hopefully be able to attend on the scheduled day/time for your child’s class.

The tours are for students only, as CARES will still be in session through August 12th.

In addition, we are still planning for our traditional Classroom Visits on the evening before school starts. On Tuesday, August 31st, all families are welcome to visit the school and see their child’s classroom.  Students may drop off supplies, if they choose.  Classroom Visits are from 5:00-6:00PM on 8/31.

Our first day of school is Wednesday, September 1st!!  We are so excited to have all of the students back at the North!

Also attached to this email are the School Supply Lists for both 4th and 5th graders.  We are sharing these now, not to hurry along the summer, but because the sales are starting at the local stores (can you believe it?)  These are general school supplies that each grade level has reviewed and requested.

We hope that you are reading lots of books, spending quality time with family and friends, and getting to enjoy fun summer nights!

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. Stay healthy and safe!
