Dear Parents and Friends,

On behalf of North Elementary STEAM/Partnership School, I'd like to welcome you to our website! Please feel free to explore!

North Elementary has a long and proud heritage of excellence. In August, 2012, we took the next step in our quest to always provide the very best in educational services. At that time we became a partnership school with Southern Utah University and began the quest to fully integrate our instruction around "S.T.E.A.M." This means we find innovative ways to use science, technology, engineering, arts, and math to teach all the other subjects. We have found that this engaging and creative way of teaching helps keep kids interested in school and doing their best work. We've also implemented the well-known "Leader in Me" lifeskills program from the Covey Institute to help our kids make great choices, strive for their personal best, and become leaders among their peers.

In other words, we've got lots to offer. Come see!

Sincerely,
Ray Whittier
Principal
North Elementary

January 2015 Parents- Please use this link to the district website for any Powerschool update instructions so that you can receive current information from the school and district as well as electronic report cards.
