    The Castle Scroll for the week of September 19, 2021

    This is your principal, Heidi Bockover, calling to welcome you to the week of September 19th.   We have a few important updates and reminders.


    This week is “Start with Hello” week at North Shore Elementary!  Ms. Dumaine has organized a ton of fun activities which started with our “Start with Hello” Poster Contest!  I hope everyone has been busy making creative posters to celebrate this week.  Check out each day’s theme on our website and in the email flyer attached to this call.  SWH '21 Parent Form.pdf 


    Tuesday, September 21st is “Dads take your child to School Day”!    We have a sweet treat for all Dads as you come through the car circle and drop off your student(s). 


    Our September SAC Meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 21st at 4:00pm in the Media Center.  The Media Center Gate will be open.  Everyone is welcome and the agenda is attached to this call.  SAC Agenda 9.21.21.pdf 

    September is our PTA Membership Drive Month!  If you have not joined our fabulous PTA it is not too late!  There are great prizes and incentives for the classes with the highest percentage of memberships.   North Shore PTA Membership Enrollment Form (1).pdf   North Shore PTA Membership Enrollment Form 2021 English with QR.pdf 

    KG-5 MAP testing for both Reading and Math continue this week.  Please make sure your child is well rested and ready to do their best!  


    Don’t forget to help your child fill out their Knightly Readers’ Log by encouraging them to read every night!  Children who turn in completed reading logs for September, October, November and December will get to Silly String both Ms. Stewart and myself at our January “Knights in the Courtyard”!  


    Our efforts to keep everyone safe and healthy are working!  Last week our school reported one case of COVID-19 to the dashboard!   We are continuing to strongly recommending that our students and staff wear masks in school every day.  If your child needs a mask they can just ask their teacher.  We have plenty here to give out to everyone who needs one.   We will continue to encourage all staff and students to practice behaviors that help to protect them such as wearing a mask, maintaining distance from others to the greatest extent possible, and good hand hygiene.  The school will be reminding all students of these prevention measures frequently in an effort to keep our school community healthy.  


    Please keep your child home from school if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID 19.  If they do test positive, please email me a photo of their positive lab test results immediately.   


    Following this phone call, you should receive an email which will contain flyers and links mentioned in this call.  If you are not receiving an email attached to our weekly calls, please contact our front office staff immediately.   They will help you to update your FOCUS information.  We don’t want  you to miss any important news from our school! 


    That’s it for now!  As always, if you have any questions, concerns or good news to share, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Stewart (stewartam@pcsb.org) or myself (bockovergoldsteinh@pcsb.org).  We love to hear from you!  


    Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend and we will see everyone bright and early tomorrow morning!
