5th Grade Camp Fundraiser:
Our 5th Graders are going off to camp during the first week of March. They will be attending the outdoor school Islandwood which is located on Bainbridge Island. This will be four amazing days of fun, adventure, outdoor learning, and team building for our students. Our 5th graders need your help to get to Islandwood. Buy a Brown Bear Car Wash ticket for $8 from one of our students or donate online. See the link below.
Global Reading Challenge:
The Global Reading Challenge is a Battle of the Books program for 4th and 5th graders enrolled in Seattle Public School. The program encourages students to have fun and enjoy reading. This year Northgate started with 5 teams: S'more Reading, Peeps without a name, Golden Hawks, Seahawks Love to Read, and Smarter than a Book. At the in-school competition in early February, Smarter than a Book won the challenge. Now they will be heading to the downtown libary on March 6th for the semi-finals with their 4th grade classmates cheering them on. GO Smarter than a Book!!
Meals4Minds (FREE GROCERIES)
This year we have again been chosen by Target for their Meals4Minds program that provides free groceries to each of our students through Food Lifeline. This is an amazing benefit for our families and we encourage you to participate. Due to the weight of these bags --22lbs per child, we cannot allow children to take the bags home on the school bus. We ask that parents, guardians, friends come in to pick the groceries up. Please contact your child's teacher or the front office if you need to make other arrangements. Distribution is in our playcourt from 2:30-3:30pm on the following dates:
