PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES ARE COMING SOON!
In the near future you should be receiving a postcard in the mail indicating dates and times for Fall Parent Teacher Conferences here at North Pole Middle School. Until your postcard arrives here is our current schedule:
Monday, October 27: 11-3:00 p.m. and 4-7:30 p.m. Staff Lunch 3--4:00 p.m. ARENA STYLE
Tuesday, October 28: 8-12:00 p.m. and 1-4:30 p.m. Staff Lunch 12-1:00 p.m. CLASSROOM STYLE
In an Arena Style all teachers will be located in the gym with a sign behind them indicating their location. When you arrive you will pick up your students schedule and look for the teacher(s) that you need to see. The advantage of this style is that everyone is located in one area allowing you the opportunity to look for multiple teachers at one time.
In the Classroom Style each teacher is located in their individual classroom. When you arrive you will receive your student's schedule and proceed to each individual teacher as needed.
Hello Families -
Your PTSA needs support so they are able to support your students. Attached to this message is our flyer for the "Non-Fundraiser, Fundraiser". The intent for this is to prevent our kids from having to go sell items we don't need door to door. Every year kids are sent out in to the community to raiser funds for a variety of items that we as adults want and need for them but we place that responsibility on our kids to raise the money. North Pole Middle is changing that approach to shift the responsibility back to the adults where it belongs.
If each family were to donate $20 we would not have to do any additional fundraisers for the remainder of the year. 100% of the money collected stays in the building. The flyer indicates how the money has been spent in the past and we are always looking for new ways to spend it in the future.
Your support in this event is critical to its success and to a successful educational experience at NPM. Thank you for your help.
