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.
New Page
Please check out our new informational page. Like the page and follow us for up to date information on what is happening at Northlawn Junior High School. This is a new endeavor for us. Please be patient as I work out any issues. I also send home a newsletter every month. If you are not receiving it, please ask your son or daughter for it.

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!
