Northlawn Junior High asks that all students complete a summer reading assignment. In order to promote learning and the enjoyment of reading, students of each grade level should choose a book from the following lists to read before returning to school in August. Students may be asked to complete an activity or assignment based on the book when they return to school. Lists will be sent home with students.
Many of the books are available for check-out at our local library. We also have many of the book at school. If you would like to check out a book at school, please contact the school first to make sure an administrator or secretary will be in to assist you. Students can read a book of their own choice if they are not interested in any of the recommended books.

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)
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!
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!
