October's SIP day focused on social emotional learning. Teachers started the morning by reading the book "Only One You" by Linda Kranz. Students then discussed the important messages the book emphasized such as being unique and not following the crowd. Each student in the school painted a river rock with their own unique design. The rocks will be placed in the outdoor classroom where they will remain for years to come representing the uniqueness of all individuals in our school. A sign reading "There's only one you in this great big world... Make it a better place" will be placed with our rocks. Thank you for all of the donations for this wonderful project!
Way to go Northmoor students and families! We raised $389.87 for Karing for Kids. Our local Huck's participates in the Karing for Kids program.The Karing for Kids (KFK) Charitable Fund was created by Huck’s in 2005 to make Christmas a little better for those children who are less fortunate. They continue to grow this program each year and expand their support to children year round. Mrs. Martin dropped off our donation to Ms. Daniels at Huck's last week after our uniform buyout for charity. Thank you Northmoor families for all of your support!

This goes along with Northmoor's theme this year, "Northmoor's Got Talent" A special thank you to Mr. Johnson and the RHS Flags Corp for a wonderful presentation.

Parents please remember Northmoor follows the district uniform policy. This policy is to be followed at all times by our students. We are noticing more and more students not in compliance with the policy. After the first dress code offense, a note will be sent home about the infraction and the student will change into the appropriate uniform attire at school. After the second offense, a parent will be called and asked to bring the appropriate attire for the student. Please click on the headline for a complete description of acceptable uniform attire. We appreciate your support with this effort!
Northmoor is a "Nut-Free School." We do not allow/offer peanut or peanut by-products in our school. Please note that we have recently enrolled students who have severe allergic reactions to peanut butter, tree-nuts, and other nut by-products. Reactions to the smell or inadvertent consumption of peanut butter can range from mild allergic reactions to serious harm or even fatal results. Students, who are not allergic, are asked to never bring peanut butter/ by-products to school. Under no circumstances are treats, candies, or snacks brought into the school or classroom to contain peanut or nut by-products. On behalf or our students who allergic to nuts, we are sincerely grateful for your anticipated cooperation with this safety policy.
