Our Mission

  • DRAFT:

    Mission - Our purpose

    The purpose of the Northfield Elementary School community is to educate, empower and support all students to become respectful, engaged, responsible and effective learners who actively participate throughout the process of learning. See CVSU HOS

    Commitment - Our practice

    We commit ourselves to the collective responsibility of maintaining a safe learning environment in which we nurture the academic and social-emotional development of all students. We engage students in learning opportunities relevant to their participation in school, local, and global communities. We hold all students to high, attainable, and consistent expectations. We recognize and celebrate student growth and success in a manner that promotes student ownership and reflection.

Principal's Message

  • Dear Northfield Families,

    Happy New Year! The Northfield Elementary School staff could not be more excited about welcoming the students back to school. Many thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. If you have not already done so, please introduce yourself to me. I look forward to meeting all of you. Many thanks to the Northfield maintenance staff for your good work this summer.

    I value strong partnerships between the home and school. A positive relationship between home and school directly impacts student success at school. Demonstrate to your child that you trust their teacher and s/he will too. I look forward to knowing you and working with you. Please do not hesitate to call on me.

    The best learning environment is one that supports student behavioral needs in a positive and respectful manner. Northfield Elementary School is a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) school. That means that we have a research based behavioral response system in place to help support students to make appropriate behavioral choices. When PBIS is working well, students who need behavioral support spend more time in the classroom with their peers and less time leaving class because of inappropriate behavioral choices. The result is fewer disruptions for all students.

    It makes such a difference in promoting a positive educational experience for children when parents talk about their child’s school experience daily and communicate regularly with their child’s teachers. Please review with your children our NES OWLS Expectations: Own your actions, Work responsibly, Learn together, and Show respect.

    I look forward to working with you to provide the best educational experience for your child at Northfield Elementary School.
