From the Principal


Dear Parents, Guardians and Community: 

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 2016-2017 school year here at the Little School With the Big Heart!!

We are committed to working diligently to help your child succeed emotionally, physically and academically.

As always, I want to encourage every one of you, students, parents, guardians and family members to become an integral part of our team. When we work together, your child will thrive. We promise to communicate consistently with you. We’ll call, text or email depending on what works best for your family. Please know you can call and make an appointment anytime to speak with any of us. Making an appointment will ensure we have set aside time to focus on you and your needs.

Remember attendance and punctuality are some of the most important pillars shoring up your child’s progress. Coming to school, unless they have a fever or other serious illness or injury, is paramount. As equally important, your child will blossom if they come to school well fed, on time and prepared. Being prompt and prepared always takes planning and organization on all our parts. I would love to have all our kids with perfect punctuality this year (except for rare and unforeseen issues).

Thank you in advance for volunteering for our PTO, for helping in the classrooms and for assisting your child with their homework. I know with this close teamwork your child will have an AWESOME year of growing and learning!!!

With warm regards,

Perky Smith-Hagadone

Principal of Northside Elementary
