BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT
Come join us when it's convenient for you on September 4 from 6:30 to 8:00 for our annual Back to School Night. This evening is an opprotunity to meet your student's teachers, ask a few general questions and see how your student's day progresses.
THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL WAS A SUCCESS!
The first day of school has come and gone and what a first day it was. The excitement, smiles, energy and overall attitude in the building was one of eager anticipation of what is yet to come. It was a great first day helping kids to get acquainted and find their classes, once again this year, North Pole Middle School has outstanding students. A few reminders for families as we continue on our journey:
- please make sure your student knows their physical address of where they live, this is a safety issue and leads us to our second item
- please make sure your student knows their bus route number and the cross streets where they get picked up
- check to make sure your student knows where you work and any phone numbers they may need to use to contact you
- Lunch time went smoothly, if your student has participated in the free/reduced lunch program in the past they have a 30 day grace period until that participation runs out. We have applications here at the school should you need them.
- make sure your student has lunch money in their account or send more money with them
Our Back to School Night is September 4, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. here at the school, it's a great opportunity to meet your student's teachers and get a feel for what their day is like. We're looking forward to another terrific year and by working together we can make it happen. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
