PRincipal's message

Dear North Mountain Families,

Our entire staff welcomes you to the 2014-2015 school year!

Your child’s education and success is our number one priority, as we help prepare them for college and career.  In order to do this, we must work together. Their successes will not come easily.  Students must be responsible and active participants in their own learning.  Parents, teachers, and administrators, must guide, direct, motivate, teach self discipline, and support each other.  Students will be held accountable in their academics, behavior and social interactions.  We will fully implement our rules.  In order to help us, please make sure to review very specifically the Parent/Student Handbook with your child including discipline and the dress code. 

At North Mountain every member of our staff believes all students can learn and that each one deserves our time and attention.  Our staff collaborates as a Professional Learning Community to ensure we meet the academic promise of our students. Common Core content standards guide classroom instruction and our highly qualified and professional teaching staff continuously challenges our students.  

We encourage a close partnership between parents/guardians, students, teachers, and staff.  We need and look forward to your participation in the many activities throughout the year.  You may also get involved in PTO, School Site Council, or volunteering on campus.  We look forward to seeing you here.

We are proud to have your child as a Husky!  We are looking forward to a great year!        


Dr. Karen M. Kirschinger
