As we continue to discuss North Street's core values throughout the year, we have reminded students that a person's character is defined in moments when they believe no one is watching. Each day our students exemplify the cores values of STARS: Service, Teamwork, Achievement, Responsibility, and Self-Awareness. To reinforce these positive behaviors our team has developed a recognition system titled Stargazers. Staff members may nominate students to receive a Stargazer, which will be distributed at the beginning of each month. This Tuesday will be our first official distribution. If your child receives a Stargazer please be sure to ask them what core value they exhibited, and in the process, taught to others.
Friday, January 27th @ North Street School
Beginning at 6:15PM
Last week students voted for the movie to be show and overwhelming selected Storks! Please save the date and we hope to see you there!
WINTER RECESS GUIDELINES:
With the arrival of colder temperatures and snow please note our winter recess guidelines by clicking the link above. There are a few main components of our recess guidelines. First, indoor recess is held if the "real fee" temperature is 20 degrees or lower. We also take into consideration precipitation and the condition of the recess area.
We do encourage students to play in the snow when it arrives, however, they must have the following items. We refer to these items at the "Show Me 5" rule!
- Snow pants
This coming Friday, January 20th will once again be Patriots Day at North Street as we prepare to route on the Patriots! Students are encouraged to wear their Patriots gear, or the colors red, white and blue. Not a Patriots fan? We also encourage students show off their favorite team's colors on Friday as well!
BOX TOP UPDATE:
Second grade currently leads the way with 474 box tops! 5th and 3rd grade are close behind. Please remember to continue bringing in those box tops!
OPERATION FRIENDSHIP DANCE:
Join us for our first dance of 2017 and bring in the New Year right! All Grafton residents in 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are invited to come from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Grafton Middle School. During the dance we will have some epic dance competitions, 2017 photo props, games and of course, our usual sale of snacks and refreshments! Admission is $8.
As for parents—no need to worry! We will do our best to make sure you feel safe sending your kids to our dances, which are always chaperoned by certified crowd managers. If you’re a new parent, feel free to let us know about any concerns you may have at the door. We do want to remind parents and attendees that Operation Friendship maintains a zero-tolerance policy regarding bullying and misconduct, and that we expect students to dress appropriately for the dances. Additionally, we will not let students leave our dances without a ride home—they cannot walk back from the dance. Should you have any additional questions, please contact Kim Edgren at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-735-5820.

Please know that the photos uploaded are password protected and only viewable by our committee.
