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.
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!
Family and Community Engagement
We value our families and community as partners in education. It takes all of us working together to positively impact our students. Northside offers many opportunities for our families to participate in their students’ academic, social, and emotional growth.
