Northside Elementary School Turning Today's Learners into Tomorrow's Leaders

Keeping Up With the Bears

We’re proud of our Bears, and we love to brag a little about their accomplishments. Check in often to see what our Bears are up to and for important announcements and information.

Rotary Coat-a-Child Drive

No matter what their age, kids need coats! You can help us help them. The coat drive will take place on Saturday, October 28 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the Girl Scout House on Van Cleve and Mill Streets in Hartford City. We invite you to view our Bear Tracks Newsletter for more event details. Parents may contact Debbie Cheesman (765) 499.9529 with any questions.

Hat Day to Help Jeff King

Hat day will take place on Thursday, October 19 to help Jeff King. Mr. King and his wife suffered extensive burns in an accident recently. Mr. King works for our district as a computer technician. Mrs. King is still in the hospital. Teachers can pay $5 to wear a hat and students can pay $1. We hope to raise some much-needed funds to help with their medical expenses.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

It’s time to sign up for conferences! Parent-teacher conferences will take place on Tuesday, October 17 and Wednesday, October 18.

PTO Pie Fundraiser

Our next PTO fundraiser is the sale of Moore's pies, just in time for the holidays! Each pie is $11.00, and all orders and money are due on Monday, October 16. Delivery will be on Thursday, November 16 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the cafeteria. Pies will be frozen and should remain frozen until ready to bake or thaw for serving. Happy selling!

Immunization Records

Indiana state law requires schools to have immunization records and birth certificates for all students on file. If we do not have your child’s birth certificate and most current immunization record please send it to school. According to the law, we must exclude students from school if you do not provide this required information. Please contact the nurse or school office at 348.7595 if you have any questions.

After School Art Program

Taylor University is hosting an after school art program for elementary students in kindergarten through 6th grade. The program runs for four consecutive Fridays beginning on Friday, October 20 and ending with an art exhibit on Monday, November 13. All Northside students have been given information and registration forms. Additional forms are available in the school office.

Homework Requests

If you would like to pick up homework for your child, please request it when you call to report the absence. You should report absences to the school office by 9:30 a.m. Homework will be available for pick up after school.
