Hat Day For MDA
September 8th Hat Day for MDA
Students and Staff can donate one dollar to MDA and wear a hat to school. Donations can be given to your first hour teacher. There will be prizes for the most colorful, craziest, and most unique hat. Have fun and give for a good cause. áI'm going "behind bars" to help in the fight against muscle disease. I'm joining other community leaders to help raise critical funds for MDA, and I need your help to reach my bail! The 2014 Streator Lock-UP takes place on 09/10/2014, but I'm raising my bail before I go to jail!á Your support will help families living in our community with muscle disease, and help guarantee that I get out of jail.á Your donation makes a difference to the hundreds of kids, adults and their families who live right here in our local community. Thank you Mrs. Jancek

After School Homework Help
 After school homework help and tutoring is available in the NL library from 2:50-3:50 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students must arrange transportation the night 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.
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 once a week. Some teachers may ask that it is signed more often. Detention is held in a classoom. Students should bring homework or a book to read. They may not talk or sleep. Detention is held immediately after school  until 3:50PM. It is supervised by a teacher. 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 consequnces. (see student handbook)
Please take time to thank all support staff and substitute teachers as we celebrate Support Staff Day and Substitute Teacher Day.

Box Tops for Education
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!
