A message from NORTH PINES MIDDLE SCHOOL 10/8/19

Hello NP Community-

A little over a month into the school year, we are going to make an adjustment to our bell schedule.  We are moving Character Strong to Thursdays instead of Wednesdays, so that we only have one different schedule per week to adjust to.  As a result, lunch will be about 15 minutes later that our usual Thursday lunch time.  On Thursdays, school starts at 9:10 and lunches will start about 11:45 for 7th, 12:15 for 6th, and 12:45 for 8th grade. Please encourage your child to eat a big breakfast on Thursdays. 

On another note related to Character Strong, all of our students recently took a survey.  The results of the survey show that the majority of students feel this is a safe school where they feel supported and respected.  That is great news!

Have a great day!

Lora Jackson, Principal NPMS

NP Community-

We have two awesome new opportunities for students after school.  Please see the attached flyers for information about our Friday Yoga classes (free) and our Tuesday and Friday Homework Club (also free). Both will be from 2:45-3:45.

Don't forget that the HUB Sports Program offers an after school program at North Pines on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-6 (applications in the office).

You can call our office at 558-5020 with any questions.

Go Cubs!

NP Families-

Our Booster Club meets on Tuesdays once a month here at North Pines.  I encourage you to attend as often as you can to help plan fun events for students and families.  This year, we are planning movie and skate nights as well as an outing for 8th graders.  The next meeting is Tuesday Oct 8 from 3:30-4:15.  If you are interested, we also have Board positions open (Vice President and Secretary).

If you can't come to the meetings, but still want to be involved, there are a variety of volunteer opportunties.  We need parents to chaperone at events, call businesses to renew or buy sponsored banners for the gym, sell concessions at home games, and more.  

Please sign up for the Remind App.  Once you have this app, you will receive text notifications about specific Booster Club events!  See the attachments for directions to get signed-up.  You can also contact Tabatha Copeland, Booster Club President, with any questions at  tabathasa@gmail.com .

Dear North Pines' Parents-

As part of the Central Valley School District Health Curriculum, human growth and development is taught starting at grade 4 and continuing through grade 12.  In addition to that, suicide prevention is taught regularly.  If you would like to preview the human growth and development/HIV/AIDS curriculum, there is a parent night on Oct 22 at Spokane Valley Tech (see attached letter).  And, if you have any questions or concerns about the topic of suicide prevention, please contact me.
