Welcome to the Northmont Family!!!

Welcome to La Mesa- Spring Valley Schools, Northmont Campus. We are looking forward to an exciting and productive year where students, staff, and our community learn and grow together. There have been many changes to our school staff so be sure to check out our directory.

We are committed to creating an inclusive, supportive, and equitable family here at Northmont. Throughout the 2021-22 school year we will continue building community and developing respectful, empathetic, and collaborative citizens. Our character development program will center around three key character traits, Respect, Cooperation, and Empathy. When applied to our daily lives these traits support students and adults alike in becoming more compassionate, responsible, and positive members of our school family and greater community.

We strive each and every year to providing a rich and rigorous curriculum for all of our students, focusing on problem solving skills, productive struggle which helps students learn to persevere, accountable conversations, Depth of Knowledge, and using technology, as it becomes more and more accessible to us, to transform learning. Our implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will continue to be a driving force for our instruction. 

We have an amazing staff who firmly believes in supporting all students as they become the very best citizens and learners they can be. Our District motto is “Every Child Learning Everyday” and we as a school family fully embrace this. Our PTA and parent community is equally committed to these goals. We invite you to become involved and share your ideas, questions and talents.

New School Year Parent/Student Information

Northmont is committed to reducing the amount of wasted paper being generated for flyers being sent home. We are posting important information for parents and students on our website and also via Peachjar, an online site that you can receive our flyers and access from their website via online or the app. This is replacing our traditional "first day packet", however important documentation will be sent home with the student's Friday folder when necessary.

Please review the important forms below with your students and become familiar with office policies and procedures for the coming year.

If you want to volunteer in your student's classroom, in the office, with Northmont PTA, as a field trip chaperone or with any program we are offering, please either download the form below or obtain one from the school office or your student's teacher. You will need to turn the form in and show us your picture I.D. **Please note, in order to be a field trip chaperone, you will need to be fingerprinted. You can contact our district office to obtain the necessary paperwork to a Live Scan office. There is a fee involved for the fingerprint process. The Department of Justice does not allow agencies to share this information so unfortunately, a new Live Scan will be required.**

Parent Volunteers Are Family

Northmont takes great pride in our fabulous parent volunteers. Research proves that children whose parents are actively involved in their child's education through volunteerism, Run for Fun, homework and PTA  have a higher success rate in student achievement. Thank you to all our parents who support our neighborhood school through their many talents like Art Docent, PTA, after school clubs, classroom & office assistance, and so much more. Many of our parents support our school behind the scenes as well. We know who you are :-) . We appreciate you! If you are interested in volunteering please notify your child's teacher and come into the front office. You will be asked to fill out a Volunteer application and show an official form of Photo I.D. (ie., Driver's License, State Issued I.D. Card, Military I.D. or Passport). You can obtain the form from the office or here on our website.
