Dear Jack Northrop Families,
Welcome to our Jack Northrop Elementary School Website! We hope you will find the information you're looking for on this page. We also have an active Class Dojo account where you will receive information, updates, and all of the fun and exciting things going on at Jack Northrop!
Jack Northrop Elementary is a special place with warm and friendly teachers, students, parents, and staff, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be your principal. I believe in working collaboratively with staff, students, parents, and community partners in order to continue the success Jack Northrop Elementary has worked so hard to achieve over the years. Through this collaboration, I believe we will keep moving our students and school forward, as we navigate our way through this ever changing world.
Our school is made up of outstanding students in grades Pre-K - 5. Our faculty and staff are dedicated, caring professionals, who love and support one another as both, friends and colleagues. Jack Northrop is also very lucky to have a fabulous PTO who plan and organize fun activities and events. They are an open, approachable, creative, dedicated, and fun group of parents and staff who would love to have you join them. They are committed to working together toward the success of all of the children at Jack Northrop Elementary.
Our school is committed to creating a safe environment for all students and staff, where courtesy and kindness prevail, and where there is respect for differences in other people, customs and cultures. We want our students to work hard individually and as a classroom community to achieve an environment where everyone feels valued, and believes they can be successful. We have developed our Jack Northrop PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) program to help foster a safe and positive learning environment. At Jack Northrop Elementary we work to strengthen our core with a focus on Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. These are the values that we stand behind and cornerstones of our beliefs. In addition to our district adopted SEL (social emotional learning) curriculum, we focus on the core values throughout the school year. Classroom lessons and B-2 Bucks are used throughout the school year to introduce, review, and reinforce these values. Students collect their B-2 Bucks and exchange them for rewards in through our PBIS B-2 Store.
As parents and educators, we must form a strong partnership to ensure that all of our Jack Northrop Elementary students receive an exceptional education. I encourage you to participate in school activities and special occasions, as well as volunteer in your child’s classroom if your schedule allows and as soon as our COVID visitors’ restrictions are lifted. I look forward to getting to know you this school year and many school years to come. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (661) 949-0435 or at email@example.com.
Mrs. Kymberlee Cochran, Principal
