Coronavirus Community Resources Learning Resources Meals

Welcome to the Northmont Family!!!

In order to ensure that all children have the same learning opportunities, the distance learning program will be composed of three elements: independent study, teacher support, and supplemental online learning. 

Independent Study – The core of our distance learning program will be based on the district’s existing independent study (IS) program. IS is provided through self-paced curriculum packets (digital or hard copy) that are supported by your child’s teacher. Curriculum packets and pacing guides will include two weeks worth of learning materials and will be distributed at all schools (at scheduled times) and on the district website: www.lmsvschools.org/learning-resources/. Students who are in special education placements with alternative curriculum will be provided packets with resources from those curriculum sources.  

Teacher Support – Teachers will engage their students to support their continued learning. Depending on student access, support may occur over the phone, email, Zoom, Google Classroom, in Jupiter Grades or another online application. Parents and students are encouraged to reach out to their teachers for support. Two-way communication is critical. 

Supplemental and Online Learning – Schools will offer a myriad of online supplemental learning opportunities by grade level for students to connect with their classmates and their teachers. This may include Zoom virtual classes, Seesaw activities, Flipgrid activities, virtual scavenger hunts, etc. Parents should expect to hear more from teachers and principals about supplemental learning opportunities.

Electronic Flyer Delivery Starts 3/16

Our school is launching a communication tool called "Peachjar". School approved flyers will now be sent to you electronically and posted on the school website. Simply click flyers you receive via email or click the Peachjar button on our homepage.

This "green" initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff and volunteers.

School Supply Lists 2019-20

Each new school year offers that exciting time where students like to pick out their school supplies before the first day of school. We receive many requests from parents asking "What supplies can we bring?". We have put together a list to make your shopping experience an enjoyable one with your child. Please know, these are donations and not a requirement of your student. Many items will be shared among the classroom. Should you decide to donate, your student can bring the supplies directly to his/her teacher the first week of school or anytime through out the year. We appreciate the generosity of our families and community now and through the entire school year. Thank you in advance for helping to enrich our academic programs here at Northmont.

Important Information:

Peace Circle

We begin each morning with our Peace Circle on the Blacktop. This is a great way for us to start the day as a school community. Our staff, students, and families have an opportunity to hear announcements, participate in our Pledge of Allegiance, and our Peace Pledge. We also praise students and adults for academic growth, peace builder behavior, excellent effort, and a variety of other positive contributions to our school community. If you haven't been out to join us at our Peace Circle please plan a visit.

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.
