Welcome to Northaven Elementary School!
Northaven Elementary School is a traditional neighborhood school. The enrollment is around 400 in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Tonja Brading is principal.
The mission of Northaven Elementary is to provide an inclusive, nurturing, safe, and challenging teaching and learning environment in which staff, students, family, and community work collaboratively to challenge students to maximize their intellectual, social, cultural, and physical potentials and to promote success for a diverse student body.
Successful learners attend school regularly, come prepared, engage in learning, are productive members of the school community and believe they will be successful.
Staff behavior will direct school climate, and respect will be demonstrated by all staff and students in all settings, with both students and staff members taking ownership of individual behaviors and academic outcomes.
All staff believes that high expectations produce academic achievement through student engagement, positive student behavior, equal opportunities to learn, tailoring instruction to individual learning needs and styles, and through utilization of community resources.
Student learning is a reflection of all staff members and is most productive in a safe and secure learning environment.
A successful highly achieving school supports a positive relationship between parents and school when effective communication is collaborative, accurate, clear, consistent, and frequent.

All school cafeterias operate on a computerized lunch system. Students have a lunch account available for their use. Parents may deposit money into their child/children’s account at their convenience and may do so weekly, monthly, or yearly. If you would like restrictions placed on your child/children’s account, please send it in writing to the cafeteria manager at your child/children’s school. For example, if you don’t want your child to purchase a la carte items or breakfast, then the money will be used for lunch only.
If you have questions concerning free and reduced lunch contact Betsy Sumner.
For all other questions please contact Lisa Fackler.

During Library visits students are taught basic library skills, enjoy quiet reading and story time, and are encouraged to check out books on their regular library day.

Loan Period: Books are due back after a 1 week loan period. If you would like to keep the book longer, just bring the book back on library day and ask to have it renewed.
Late Books: There are no charges for late books. However, no additional
books may be checked out until the late book is returned. Please encourage your student to return their books on time.
Lost Books: If a book is lost or damaged, the student must pay to replace the book before they can check out another book.

Reading Counts: Northaven Elementary uses the Scholastic Reading Counts program as a way to motivate our students to read. Students read a book, and then take a short quiz on the computer to test their comprehension. Students receive prizes according to the number of points they earn.
