Monday Memo

Quick Information Items!

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION BREAKFAST:  I say you all need to take a little break and come eat waffles with us THIS TUESDAY MORNING!  I hope many of you have had invitations come home (and have seen the posters around the school, as well as the email from Mr. Woodhouse)…. but just in case you missed it, PLEASE open the attached invitation!  We want the chance to say thank you for ALL you do, big and small, to help out here at the school.  Hope you will join us, Tuesday May 9th at 9:30 am in the small gym!

Much love-

Emilie and April

PTA Presidents Extraordinaire (Woodhouse added the Extraordinaire part)

LEADERSHIP DAY: Friday, May 19th is our first ever school Leadership Day! More details will be coming and invitations should be going home soon, but I wanted to give you a heads up since parents are invited that day as well as other dignitaries, Leader In Me schools and district leaders. 

On leadership day there will be a 45 minute assembly at 12:15 and the same assembly will be repeated at 1:20.  This is where the song contest comes into play that our music teachers have organized.  Along with the grades singing, there will be speeches by students all about the 7 habits.  

Throughout the entire time (12:15-2:15) there will be an open house in the small gym with the students’ creative pieces.  (This was on the flier that should have gone home earlier this week).

Our goal for this event is to have 100% student involvement in one way or another so please encourage students to create something that represents what they have learned with The Leader in Me Program (Due May 12th).

NORTHRIDGE DAY OF COLOR:   Saturday, May 20.  Mark the date!  Please come join our school as we celebrate our successes this year!  The students are planning the whole day by themselves, and it will be a lot of fun for the whole family.  They are almost finished with the flyer.  We are selling our chalk at cost, both the color packets and the sidewalk chalk we have.  We are helping one of our Northridge alums with his eagle project this year and collect supplies for teachers to do more STEAM activities in their classroom.  The materials collection is in place of our fundraiser.  If you have any of these items at home, or want to purchase them to help us out, please see the link and sign up to bring them on the color day.  More information to come in the next day or two!

STUDENT NOT RETURNING?  As we plan for our classrooms next year, please let us know if you plan to be moving and will not be returning.  This helps us tremendously with our planning.  Simply email our secretaries and let them know!

ETHELYN LUNT RETIREMENT OPEN HOUSE:   May 15, 4-6 PM.  Please come celebrate the amazing career of our wonderful librarian Ethelyn Lunt.  Ms. Lunt will also be honored for her work Monday night at a celebration for winning our Utah PTA Classified Employee of the Year.  Her open house will have treats and refreshments.  Drop by, get a cookie, and come support her before she leaves.

HOPE OF AMERICA: This Tuesday, May 9th is the Hope of America program at the Marriot Center on BYU’s campus. Those students that are participating in that evening program will also miss part of class on Tuesday in order to attend the dress rehearsal at BYU.

NATIONAL BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY: Wednesday, May 10th is National Bike to School Day. The students received a flyer on Friday with a map showing a safe route to Northridge. For safety’s sake, please remember the following: 

  • ALWAYS wear a helmet.
  • ALWAYS walk your bike across the street.
  • WATCH for traffic crossing the sidewalks and along the street.
  • ARRANGE to bike with friends or family.
  • FIND and USE your safest route to school!
