Principal's Message

On behalf of the faculty and staff at North Primary School I would like to welcome back those families that were a part of the North Primary School community last year.  In addition, we would like to extend a warm welcome all of our new students and their families.  You are coming to an absolutely magnificent school. Our teachers and staff are passionate, caring, hardworking, and always willing to learn something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group of individuals who take learning seriously while also making personal connections that help our students succeed.


The 2018-19 school year is officially underway! When visiting North Primary you will see a few "new faces" that have joined our family:


  • Mrs. Shelley O'Malley will be teaching fourth grade (4B)
  • Miss Sara Sheaffer will be teaching third grade (3C)
  • Mrs. Jennifer Deluca will be our art teacher
  • Mrs. Amy Obringer will be our school secretary


We look forward to seeing you at our Meet the Teacher Night set to take place on Wednesday, September 6th. Come and meet your child’s teacher and enjoy a treat afterwards provided by the PTO. This year we will be holding our Annual Title I Meeting in conjunction with Meet the Teacher Night. We will be providing our families with valuable information about our school-wide Title I program.


This year we will be implementing a school-wide positive behavior plan at North Primary! Behavior expectations have been identified and will be recognized by the faculty and staff when students display these behaviors. A school store and special event opportunities will take place each nine week period in conjunction with our school-wide positive behavior program. More information will be coming home and posted to the website in the weeks to come.


There will be numerous opportunities this year for you and your child to participate in.  Family Literacy, Math, and Science Nights, as well as Principal Coffees/parent informational sessions are being planned in conjunction with PTO events.  Once again, there will be an opportunity for you to have lunch with your child on his or her birthday.  Look for more information regarding these and other exciting events & activities to come.


I look forward to a positive and productive school year! If you ever have a question or a concern, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school or via email at


In Partnership,

Christine M. Ross
