A Message from Our Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Northside web page. Northside Elementary School is a 3rd through 6th grade school with about 390 students. We are known to be an academically high performing school. We have received a letter grade of "A" for nine of the last 10 years.

In addition to our strong academic goals, another of our goals is to be great communicators, so in addition to this web page we communicate in the following ways:

  • Facebook (Northside Elementary School Hartford City)
  • Twitter (@NSBears)
  • Instagram (northside_elementary) 
  • We post our weekly newsletter, Bear Tracks, on this web page weekly, and we send it home with each student every Friday.
  • Each grade level team produces a weekly newsletter as well.
  • You can view your child's academic progress through Skyward.

We also recognize the importance of parent and community involvement in the educational process. If you have an interest in serving on our PTO or on our school improvement committee, please let us know. You are welcome to contact me or your child's teacher by phone or email any time.

I am very proud to serve the Blackford community as principal of Northside, and I subscribe to our unofficial motto "We are not here to be average. We are here to be awesome!"
