Communication


Keeping our families informed is a top priority at North School and we communicate using the following methods:

BLACKBOARD CONNECT MESSAGES

Blackboard Connect is a web-based program that the principal uses to send out messages containing school messages in between newsletters, emergency information, and time-sensitive information. These are not very frequent and it usually contains important information

E-BLASTS

E-Blasts are sent out from the same system as the North News and these contain reminders mostly from school partners such as North Parent Group (NPG), Hillsborough Schools Foundation (HSF), and Recreation about school, district, and HSF events. Please read these to stay abreast of date changes and reminders.

NORTH NEWS

The North News is sent to families twice a month and it contains a principal newsletter, a letter from the Parent Group president, upcoming calendar dates or changes, and updates from various school partners. Please read these very carefully.

CLASSROOM TEACHER EMAILS

Teachers will email parents from time to time to inform parents about things that are relevant to the classroom. Please pay close attention to these as they often include information about homework, important dates, and classroom projects.

READER BOARD

North School has a reader board that has the school’s weekly events listed and this list is updated every Friday. The reader board is located in the front of the school so please read it upon entering the North traffic circle.

SHUTTERFLY ROOM PARENT SITES

At the beginning of each year room parents in each classroom offer an opt-in Shutterfly website for information specific to the classroom. Room parents use this site for photos and reminders about classroom and school events. These have many reminder options and families are able to set their preferred reminders under the Settings tab.

Our schools have received 26 California Distinguished School Awards, 7 National Blue Ribbon Awards, and 29 Kent Awards for Innovative Programs. Our success is due to high quality staff, committed and involved families and community members, a supportive Board, a cohesive vision, and a strong commitment to excellence.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
