Welcome to North Shore Elementary, Home of the Knights!
We are a school committed to supporting our students by providing a safe learning environment that is academically focused, but we still make time to have fun and celebrate our successes. We are always open to feedback from our families. If you ever have a question, comment, or concern, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our community is extremely active and is supported by very caring and committed members. We are proud of the efforts made by our children, staff, and parents. Our parents are a critical part of our school success. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in providing an atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits. This support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn. I strongly encourage you to be an active part of your child’s education by making sure they get to school on time and attend school regularly. Please ensure that your child reads each and every night. Academics require practice, just like playing a musical instrument or sports.
Communication between home and school is very important to the success of the school. I encourage each of you to remain active in your child’s education. Always keep the lines of communication open with the school. I welcome your participation in the school improvement process through the School Advisory Council (SAC) and active PTA involvement.
Please visit our website often and support our school. You will find your child’s teacher is your best resource and I encourage you to build a positive partnership with them. I look forward to an excellent year at North Shore Elementary.
Carpe Diem! Carpe Success!

Ms. Hall - Assistant Principal
Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! I am excited for our Knights return to the castle as we have an exciting year of teaching and learning ahead! At North Shore, we pride ourselves on providing a safe, welcoming, and engaging learning environment where we strive to meet the unique needs of all students. We value our relationships with families and the involvement of our volunteers and community partnerships, which are vital to student success.
I am looking forward to the incorporation of project based learning (PBL) into our instructional model this year. Through the integration of PBL, students will actively explore real-world problems and challenges to acquire a deeper knowledge and prepare them to survive in a global society, while still learning what they need to know to succeed in school today. This student-centered approach to learning provides students with additional opportunities for collaboration, research/exploration, and critical thinking to meet the rigorous demands of grade level standards. I am excited to watch our students embark on this new learning adventure! I have high expectations for their personal growth and academic achievement this school year. Thank you for entrusting us with your precious children and for being part of the North Shore family.
