Message from the Assistant Principal

Our students and their families are the heartbeat of Northside Elementary School.  We feel it is a privilege to work with them.  While our main focus is motivating our students to step out of their comfort zone and try to meet new academic challenges, we strive to nurture our students and love them as our own.  The faculty and staff at Northside encourage all students to be “Respectful, Responsible, and Ready” each day in words and deeds.  Northside is a great place for students to learn and grow both socially and academically.  I am honored to be a part of Northside:   “A School of Academic Excellent with Heart.”

Rachel Morris, Assistant Principal at Northside Elementary

The Culture of Northside Elementary

Northside serves students in grades Pre-K thru 5th.  We currently have over 525 students and have seen growth every year that we have been open. At Northside, we strive to meet the needs of all students and involve our families in a variety of activities.

Learning, growing, and changing are the hallmarks of education and here at Northside, we seek to encourage every student to reach their full potential.  We utilize challenging learning experiences, supportive environments, and dedicated faculty and staff members to facilitate learning for all students.  Our opportunities for academic growth include hands-on learning in science and math, a committed computer lab for STEM activities, weekly computer classes, and high-quality instruction in all academic areas.  All of our students visit the library weekly to support their classroom literacy instruction and to explore books of their own choosing.

We inspire students to grow socially through volunteerism and support for our community.  Northside students use their artistic talents to make cards for nursing home residents, donate to the local animal shelter, and participate in various community activities including sports, 4-H, and scouting. Students are recognized weekly and quarterly for outstanding behavior and care for others.  We acknowledge our students not only for what they do within our walls, but how they positively impact our community as well.

Northside aims to nurture our students and give them a strong sense of belonging.  We believe they deserve a learning environment that sees them as individuals with great strengths, talents, and abilities. Without a doubt, our students work hard each and every day; it is evident in their countless accomplishments.

Veterans Day

Northside’s most notable event is our annual Veterans Day program.  We honor and celebrate those men and women who have gallantly served in the various military branches.  With music, speeches, and tokens of our appreciation, our students, faculty, and staff offer our veterans the opportunity to be acknowledged for their meritorious service.  We believe military service is one of the greatest gifts given to the citizens of the United States of America.  It is with great pleasure we salute our veterans each and every year.

School Feature


Northside has introduced a new motivational tool to our students: Inchy the book vending machine! Through a generous donation and community sponsorships, we were able to purchase Inchy and fill it with free books! Students have been selected through random drawings and achieving milestones to receive a free book of their choice! We are excited to have Inchy supporting our literacy efforts while rewarding our awesome students!
