2021-22 Theme: Change
Welcome to North Lake School
I would like to introduce myself as your Superintendent and Principal of North Lake School. I am honored to serve in this capacity for a seventh year and love leading our great K-8! There is something special about our school district and it can be found in the people who work here. You will find a supportive, caring community within our school building. This community includes our amazing support staff (office ladies, custodians, kitchen cooks, and extended day staff) and our passionate, experienced teachers. We all remember that students are at the heart of everything at North Lake School!
The 2021-22 core value as we continue on our journey is: CHANGE. “We are able to adapt to the constant change in both education and life in general, because we expect it, and will work in partnership to overcome any and all obstacles.” The school theme which expresses this value in kid terms is: SAILING THE 7 C’s. Every day at North Lake School, we teach, model, and expect the 7 C’s: CHARACTER, CRITICAL THINKING, COMMUNICATION, COLLABORATION, CREATIVITY, CONFIDENCE, and CHANGE. We have finally arrived at the last core value and will spend this school year reflecting on the past while looking forward to the future.
North Lake School continues to evolve and improve. The STEAM program has added tech ed instruction to better prepare students for high school and beyond. The fine arts department is offering electric piano, guitar, marimba, and recorder classes. The lower school Maker Space adjacent to the Lakers Library has begun Phase 1 and will be ready for engineering action by our littlest learners. Finally, the new lower playground was installed and the big gym floor was resurfaced. We are thrilled to get back to middle school athletics, NLEF family events, after-school clubs in partnership with Town Hall Library, holiday concerts, and more…See you at school!
