Principal's Message

On behalf of our staff, I would like to welcome students and parents to Northmount School for the 2016-17 school year.  We are exceptionally proud of our two programs and are pleased you have chosen to be a part of our Northmount school community.  We strongly believe the connection between home, school and the community is a vital in ensuring all of our students have the best possible chance of reaching their potential.

It is our goal to provide outstanding opportunities for our students to grow academically, physically, socially and emotionally.  We strive to provide the very best assessment practices that support academic growth and opportunities for our students to become engaged and ethical citizens, with entrepreneurial spirits.

I encourage you to familiarize yourselves with our 2016-2017 Student and Parent Information Guide‌.  The guide contains information related to our expectations, processes and procedures.  We ask that all parents review this guide with their child(ren) each year.  In addition, all students in grades 1 -6 will be issued a Northmount daily agenda book.  We ask for your assistance in checking this daily for homework, reminders and daily home reading.

Parents and guardians will receive information related to special school events, meetings, and other information via SchoolZone.epsb.ca.  It is very important that parents have current and valid email addresses on file with us in order to receive notice of postings relative to their children.  SchoolZone also gives families access to school information, report cards, attendance information and specific classroom news.  If you require a password for SchoolZone, or assistance, please contact the office. 

Please familiarize yourself with our new hours of operation as there are changes from last year.  Please note as teacher supervision does not begin until 8:15am each morning we ask that you do not send your children to school prior to 8:15am.  All students, including Kindergarten, follow the schedule below:
