Reminder from our School Nurse
Published: Fri, May 26, 2017, 01:54PM CDT

PICK up Medications in the Clinic! Please remember to pick up and take home all medications that were brought to the clinic for your child. I must discard any medications remaining in the clinic. This includes inhalers, epi-pens, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter meds. Nothing can be stored in the clinic over the summer for use next school year. I really do not want to waste these items/supplies (some of which are very expensive). If you are unable to come to the school yourself, please send a note or an email (cfaulkner@coppellisd.com) requesting your student be permitted to pick up and take home any medical supplies he or she may have here.

Immunization Notifications: Letters regarding immunizations your child may need prior to the start of the 2017/18 school year have been mailed out. This is the only letter or reminder you will receive before schedule pick-up in August. This pertains primarily to incoming 7th graders. If your child receives any immunizations between now and the end of summer, you can avoid the long lines on schedule pick-up day (August 10th, 2017) by sending via mail, email attachment, or fax a copy of the updated immunization record to the school nurse. Class schedules cannot be given to students whose immunizations are delinquent.

I wish you a happy, healthy, and safe summer and look forward to seeing you and your students in August!

North in the News
Published: Fri, May 12, 2017, 01:43PM CDT

CMS North Recognized as a Model Professional Learning Community at Work
Please see the article from the district website below:

Coppell Middle School North is being recognized as a MODEL PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY AT WORK™ by Solution Tree.
The campus is one of about 200 schools and districts in the US and Canada to receive this honor.

Coppell Middle School North was recently recognized by Solution Tree for its sustained success in raising student achievement and the successful implementation of the Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) at Work™. Implementing the process was a major contributing factor in the improved achievement of its students.

PLCs are schools and districts in which educators recognize the key to improved learning for students is on-going, job-embedded learning for the adults who serve those students. The three big ideas of a PLC call upon educators to:

1. Focus on learning.
2. Build a collaborative culture.
3. Create a results orientation.

Responding to news of the recognition, Amanda Ziaer said, “We are honored to have our campus recognized for the all of the hard work and commitment that all staff members have worked to see the success in All of our kids on the campus. This truly is such an incredible staff to work with because their dedication and love for our kids is so apparent and engrained in their daily actions and routines. Way to go North Educators!”
