Booster Club
The S.E.S. Dist. 44 Activities Booster Club NEEDS parents to get involved for the 2015-2016 school year.
 
  • Meetings are normally once a month.
  • We have various fundraisers throughout the school year.
  • The more people who are involved makes our work easier.
  • New members = new ideas!
     
Benefits for students to be involved in activities include:
 
  • Better grades
  • Better attendance
  • Learns time management
  • Makes them well-rounded students
  • Raises self-esteem
 
OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 9 AT 7:00 PM IN THE NORTHLAWN SCHOOL CAFETERIA. 
 
With the help of some individual donors, we have been able to fund sports and extra-curricular clubDescription: Important Meeting Clip Arts since the 2013-14 school year.  IF WE DO NOT get more parents involved, we will not be able to sustain that same goal for 2015-2016 which will result in less activities.

School Safety Power Point for Parents
School safety is a rising concern in all schools across the country. Northlawn is continuing our efforts to make sure all students and staff are safe every day at school. We want to make sure that all parents and students understand our rules and consequences as well as what they should do if they know about something that is happening at school.  Please review the Power Point presentation on the Principal's Message page. It is located in the files section at the bottom of the page. Click on the start show at the top of the page.
Feel free to contact our administrative team at any time.
Questions and Concerns
if you are a parent with suggestions, questions or concerns, you are encouraged to contact your child's teacher first. If your question pertains to a school-wide issue, or if you feel your problem was not resolved, please contact me and we will do our best to respond appropriately. I hope that we can work together to provide a great experience for your son or daughter. Communication between Northlawn staff and parents is the key to a successful year  for your child. I can be reached by phone at Northlawn or by email at Kjancek@ses44.net.
After School Homework Help
 Does you child struggle in a class? Please contact your child's teacher or an administrator. We can help. After school homework help and tutoring is available in the NL library from 2:50-3:50 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Parents must sign their child up for the program by speaking with a teacher or administrator. Students must arrange transportation before with their parent. A late bus is available to transport students to a location near their home. Students or parents can pick up a copy of the late bus routes at school or see them on this web page. The bus leaves school at 4:00PM. If you are picking your child up from tutoring, they should be picked up in the front. (flag pole side) off of 1st Street. The late bus picks up in the back of the building.
Big Hall Detention

If your child receives a detention, he or she will be given a sheet with information about the detention and an assigned day to serve it. It will generally be the following day. Students staple the detention in their planner so that parents will see it when they go home. We ask that you look at your child's planner each night and sign it. Detention is held in a classroom. Students should bring homework or a book to read. They may not talk or sleep. Detention is held immediately after school until 3:50PM. Some students may be assigned a lunch detention. Students are allowed to ride the late bus but should have this arranged with their parent the night before. Students who skip detention receive further consequences.  Receiving multiple detentions escalates consequences. (see student handbook)
Box Tops for Education

Please collect Box Tops and turn them in to your first hour teacher. Students who bring ten Box Tops to the first dance will get in free!
Northlawn is collecting Box Tops for Education again this year! 

For each small box top that is turned in, Northlawn receives ten cents!  
It doesn't seem like a lot, but it sure adds up quickly! 

Students should turn in box tops to their study hall teachers!  

Each study hall is competing this year, and one study hall from each grade level will be crowned the winner at the end of the year! 

Let's raise some money for our school! GO PANTHERS!
