Northern Hills Title I Family School Compact 2022-23

_Parent and Family Engagement Schedule 22-23 NH


Northern Hills Family-School Compact

The mission of Northern Hills is to educate the “Whole Child” as we instill a passion for learning.

What is a Family-School Compact?

A family-school compact for achievement is an agreement that parents, students, and teachers develop together.  It explains how parents and teachers will work together to make sure all students get the support they need to reach and exceed grade-level standards.

The parents and staff of Northern Hills Elementary developed this family-school compact for achievement. Parents and students assisted with offering suggestions for home activities to support learning. Schoolwide meetings are held each year to review the compact. Parents are welcome to contribute comments or activity suggestions at any time.
