WMr_Hale_201029961000041630a.jpge are off to a great school year! Behaviorally, all of the students have been doing a nice job making appropriate choices in the classroom, cafeteria, and playground. They have been working hard academically in the classrooms as well, and continue to demonstrate the six character traits that we expect Northside students to possess. This month, we are focusing on the "Respect" character trait. It has been great to see so many students receive a cougar paw from the office for their efforts. Our recognition wall continues to grow as they keep adding paws to it, and I'm sure the wall will be filled with paws for the other traits as the school year progresses.

Additionally, I wanted to take this time to remind you that we will send a monthly newsletter home. In this way, we will be able to keep you updated about current events at Northside. Our monthly newsletter is called, "The Cougar Den" and will contain the PTO newsletter on the reverse side. This newsletter, in addition to our school's on-line link found at the district website; should serve as helpful sources of information. It is our goal that effective communication will happen between home and school so that all of the students can reach their potential.

Please check our elementary link from time to time, don't hesitate to contact the school via e-mail james_hale@pasd.us or phone with any questions you may have in the future. I look forward to seeing you at school events this year, and want to thank you in advance for being part of our Northside Team! Together we can accomplish all of our goals.

Sincerely,
Mr. Hale
