    Good afternoon. 

    The Conference Scheduler closes at midnight on Monday. The password is “North” and is not case sensitive. You will see the schedules of all selected teachers at the same time in order to easily coordinate the 10-minute slots. You do NOT have to see each teacher; just choose the ones for whom you have a question or two.  ANYONE who still needs to schedule their appointments can call the office (328-2400) for assistance through noon on Wednesday, October 23.  AFTER THAT POINT SCHEDULING IS CLOSED.  You will be welcome to check teachers’ conferences schedules after 4:00pm on the 23rd to see if there are any open slots.  Schedules will be posted outside the conference areas.

    • IS YOUR STUDENT INTERESTED IN ORCHESTRA CLUB? Students from Palmer HS are offering to work with interested North orchestra students after school.  There will be another information meeting Wednesday, October 23 in the cafeteria.  Students who can’t stay should stop by to let the coordinators know what they would like to see provided and which day works best for them.
    • CALLING ALL NORTH FAMILIES! We provide dinner and snacks for our teachers and staff on the first night of Conferences, Wednesday, October 23. They don’t have time to leave between the end of classes and the start of meetings, so please consider bringing by something to snack on or eat at dinner time.  Sandwiches, chips, casseroles - anything will be great for our staff and very much appreciated. You may drop items off any time Wednesday at the front desk or send them in with your child. THANK YOU!
    • RED RIBBON WEEK focuses on drug and tobacco safety. Each day there is a dress-up activity and slogan, and the best theme-dressed student – one guy, one girl – will receive a prize at lunchtime. Take some time to discuss drugs and tobacco use with your student(s)!
      • CARDBOARD: About 18” X 24” - that can be painted upon for individual projects.
      • Old oven liners are fantastic too.
      • BLENDER or two – to keep, for making paper.
      • SHREDDED PAPER – it is the BEST for paper maché!
      • Furniture pieces and scrap wood. My period 8 is making a sort of Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) We are working on a display for the FAC. We have the legs and support structure, but could really use an old wooden vanity, or some cabinet that size, with opening doors and little shelves, ideally.
      • One of my students, Paradise, is making flowers out of the bottoms of plastic bottles. The school bottles are ok, but we really like the taller, heartier bottles (2 L).
    • FREE LAUNDRY FACILITIES! Contact Mr. Weickum or Mrs. Eggleston to use the North laundry room (we have detergent for you) OR to arrange a drop off and we’ll have it clean for you by the end of the day!

    • 8TH GRADE FAMILIES! The transition to high school will shift to high gear second semester, but news will begin coming out soon.  Info soon for an Honors/IB information night at Palmer and Coronado’s Pre-AP Information Night, both in November.
