Northside Notes
Welcome from Principal Scott Hundley


We are so excited to welcome our students and families to Northside Elementary to join our Thoroughbred Family. Within our school building we are reimagining what students are being asked to do! We will certainly teach our students the foundational skills needed to be successful but our next challenge is to provide unique opportunities for our students as they APPLY their learning.

As a staff we believe that students need structure, accountability and consistency for them to perform their best. We also believe that students deserve relationships, respect and kindness from all staff members and peers. A prerequisite for student learning is a students' basic needs and well-being. Northside is a building where students are learning without fear of making mistakes. The adults within this building will model respect and have consistently high expectations for themselves. We will also celebrate the successes of our students and staff!

A fun activity that we have undertaken this school year is a collaboration with the city of Midway called SaddleUp Midway. This is our chance, as a school, to apply the learning we embark on every day. Our students at each grade level have been tasked with, "Reminding the city of Midway what makes it the greatest place to live and go to school." We connect this learning with our district's Portrait of a Learner where students are working to grow in competencies like becoming resilient learners, reflective collaborators, empathetic communicators, creative problem solvers and responsible contributors.

Northside is a family environment where we welcome in our parents and community to collaborate with us in the best interest of our students. Thanks to everyone for partnering with us and making a wonderful experience for our Northside Thoroughbreds!
