Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! I hope that you had a well-rested and enjoyable summer. I know just how hard all of our staff, students and families worked last year and I hope that this time off has served to help everyone rest and re-energize, so that we are ready to begin the work for the new school year. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Northam families and community members for their support during the 2014-15 school year. By everyone working together, we accomplished many initiatives and met our goals for the year. Both teachers and students did a phenomenal job learning and applying the new common core state standards, implementing rigorous instructional shifts and enhancing content and communication skills that will prepare them for future learning. Further, year after year our school wide discipline continues to be the best in the Rowland district. This means that our students continue to make good choices as they learn and grow both academically and socially. I am extremely proud of all students and staff.

This year, I will like to invite parents to join our Northam parent groups. I highly encourage parents to volunteer, attend meeting, participate in workshops and get involved with our Northam ELAC, PTA and School Site Council. These are the groups that work closely with me and make recommendation on what is needed at the school.  I truly believe that the education of a child consists of the school and parents working together to ensure that each student is successful and ready for a bright future.   

Northam Elementary School will continue to be an educational institution that fosters a warm, innovative and dynamic learning environment with a rigorous curriculum. I am truly looking forward to working with a dedicated and talented school team, students and with our parent community as we begin the 2015-16 school year.
