Dr. Ackley’s Message . . .

Sounds like North Lake and Stone Bank Schools are partnering to bring back the 7-8 dances! Please thank Mrs. Tark for her encouragement to help get this fun event going again and get kids out on the dance floor!! The first dance will be hosted at Stone Bank School on Thursday, January 19th, and middle schoolers will receive further information when it is available. Meanwhile, parent chaperones are needed if you want to help out.

There are North Lake School baseball hats for sale for any family member. The hats work well with a ponytail if you like that look.  We also have many knit, colorful hats (not spirit wear) for babies and children which are free. Please stop by the office for your hat today. The NLS hats are $20.00 each and supplies are limited. Thank you to Miss Wartman, 1st grade teacher, for being a beautiful model.

Hello North Lake Families!

We have had some fun things to celebrate these past few weeks. Wonderful concerts, acts of kindness, and so much more. Here are a few celebrations that I wanted to share with you!

Leadership Group celebrated their hard work on many projects by decorating cookies on Pajama Day!


Each year North Lake nominates a student for the Lake Country Optimist Club’s “True Grit” award. This year our recipient is Harlow Millies. Harlow is a consistently kind and hard working presence in the classroom and in the hallways here at North Lake. She will be honored at an Optimist Club meeting on January 11th. 

As always, please let me know if there are any ways that I can support your child!

Take care –
Jill Lesch
