Good Morning! HAPPY LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!

Attention 8th graders. Before the merriment of commencement commences, I hope that your years with us here at North Middle School have prepared you for the challenges you face. Who knows, among you there may be a future Eleanor Roosevelt or a Rosemary Clooney, and among you young men, there may be a Joe DiMaggio, a President Eisenhower, or a Vice-President Nixon. But you will always have the glorious memories of North Middle School. Falls Pride Forever! Bon Voyage!

Student & Parent Info:

Everyday reminders: Charge your Chromebook, Lock you Locker and Check Lost and Found

PowerSchool Accounts: Back to School Registration is moving ONLINE!

In order to streamline our registration process and cut down on paper forms, we are moving registration online!

While online registration will not be open until later this summer, we are asking parents to log in or create their PowerSchool parent accounts now and make sure all students are linked correctly. That way, we can provide assistance if needed before registration opens.

If you have not created a PowerSchool Parent account, you should have received an email and flyer from the school. It contains instructions and your unique student link code to link all students to your account.
