Welcome to Northmont Elementary; part of La Mesa – Spring Valley Schools. We are excited about the successful 2023-24 school year we have ahead of us.
At Northmont, We Are Family. Our theme this year is: Northmont Family, Let’s Grow Together. Through the 2023-24 school year, we are promoting the Northmont Way. Living the Northmont Way means we are: Engaged Learners, Respectful To All and Community-Minded Citizens.
To ensure that our students are engaged learners, we provide a safe and welcoming environment where students focus on the rigorous curriculum and high-quality instruction provided in each classroom at Northmont. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) drive classroom instruction and our staff combine this with their talents and dedication to create a rich learning environment everyday.
Our emphasis on being respectful to all and community-minded citizens go hand-in-hand. We treat each other and our school with respect. This means that when problems arise, we use restorative practices to come to a resolution. We take care of each other through empathy and compassion. Community-minded refers to how we conduct ourselves on campus and keep our campus clean. Our school will be using the Second Step program this year as our Social-Emotional Learning program to help support the Northmont Way.
We have a dedicated staff who supports all students as they become the best humans they can be. We are thankful to our strong PTA and parent community who are equally committed to these goals. As parents, you are key members of the Northmont Family. There are many ways to be involved in your child’s education at Northmont. Each Friday, I send out the Northmont Weekly Newsletter for the following week that contains upcoming events, announcements and ways to become involved in all things Northmont.
I very much look forward to getting to know our parent community members. If I can be of service, please do not hesitate to contact me.
