North Parent Group (NPG) Dues -   At North, we depend entirely on your NPG Dues to fund many enriching programs and events like our STEAM Fair, Movie Night, school assemblies, Heritage Day, Service Learning, staff appreciation, and Art in Action to name a few. Your NPG Dues also cover student school supplies, teacher gifts, your school directory AND your child's yearbook.  Dues are paid online by clicking here.  We need to be at 100% participation! Concerns?  Contact Erin Lager:  

Volunteering at North -  Volunteers are integral to our efforts.  Volunteering gives us the chance to build community and foster new friendships.  We are looking for dedicated committee members and rockstar committee chairs to step up and help out!  Please don't hesitate to JUMP IN and participate- your kids will be impressed and we will be so grateful! It's never too late to sign up. We could use a few more pairs of hands to help on Staff Appreciation Luncheon Committee. Please email Melodie Rubin if  interested in  helping with this fun event on May 3rd.

New Families to North School Grades K-5 - We hope you are feeling like you are no longer "new" and rather, part of our great community of parents, caregivers and extended family. If you ever feel like you could use some additional outreach from our parent group, or have a question or concern, you can always reach out to me.
