Our students will have the opportunity to vote on Tuesday in our Elementary Mock Election. All classes (K-5) will come to the lab to vote for their candidate throughout the day.

I would like to have some signs for each candidate and "I Voted" stickers (240). If you can help out just let me know. Thanks for your support. Mrs. Whipple

Kindergarten students began using Tux Paint today and our older students continue to use the program. The program is FREE and you may download it by clicking on the link below and following the directions. After you download the program you will need to go back to the link and download the stamps.
Tux Paint is a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (for example, preschool and K-6 in the US, key stages 1 & 2 in the UK). It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who guides children as they use the program.

Ambassador Incentive Program

Northside Christian School will be continuing our Ambassador Incentive Program for the 2009-2010 school year. We initiated this program June 1, 2008 because we know that in order to grow our student body, satisfied parents are our best marketing tool. This program will provide $400 tuition credit for current families when a new family they recommend is accepted and attends NCS for the 2009/10 school year. The new family will also receive five new uniform shirts as their gift from NCS. In order to receive the tuition credit, please be sure and have the new family mention your family as their reference. If you have any questions, please

Dance Mat Typing

Second Grade

Our second graders have started the Dance Mat Typing program. At the end of first grade they were introduced to this program in the computer lab. I have been so pleased with how quickly they have worked through Level 1. For additional practice students may click on the Dance Mat Typing link (to the right under second grade).

Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade

Your student is repeating Dance Mat Typing at their own pace in computer class. If your student is new to Northside this year I strongly suggest using this site at home. They may click on the Dance Mat Typing link (to your right) for additional practice. After they complete all levels (in class) they will move on to other typing activities.

Throughout the year students will be given the opportunity to take a typing speed test which will measure their speed along with accuracy. This is always helpful and encourages the extra practice.
