Santa's Workshop

This year we will be having a fun new addition for the holidays. We will be holding Santa's workshop during lunch each day starting Dec 14th through Dec 17th. The kids will be able to purchase items for Christmas for family or friends and little cost. We will help them wrap the items to take home for the big day. This is not a fundraiser, all items will be sold for cost. This is something new we are trying as a service for the kids. Watch for a letter to come home with more details about this fun holiday event. As always thanks for your support in making our school great.

Afterschool Program

The 4-H Afterschool Program, also known as Youth and Families with Promise began at North Elementary in the fall of 2009. If offers three excellent opportunities for our children in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades, in class mentoring, after school help with homework and fun 4-H projects. The goal is to help children succeed in academics and in life.

The mentors are coordinated with SUU and other volunteer organizations. Each mentor is screened and trained before mentoring begins.

To participate in our program, we ask parents and or teachers to refer their students to the program. You may do so by emailing Becky Hyde at There is no cost to the school or the student. We have registration packets available and ask that parents complete the packet to determine the needs of each student upon admission and match them most beneficially with their mentor.

Currently the program only has four students enrolled at North Elementary and we have room for Twenty Five. If you have a child or know of a child that would benefit from this program please contact Becky by e-mail or at the 4-H Extension Office at 586-8132.
