Hello Northpoint community,

Before Winter Break I asked parents to complete a school survey, which looked at a wide variety of school systems and structures.  We achieved overall very high scores. What is more telling about how parents feel about Northpoint are in the open-ended questions that many parents commented on with sincere praise and honest critique.

Reading parents comments was simultaneously very exciting and sobering.  We are doing amazing things at Northpoint, but we could be doing a number of other things better.

To address parent concerns and questions I am doing two things:  first, I will address some of these issues via this forum, which will allow me to communicate weekly about the steps we are taking to change and the progress we are making.  Second, I will be holding monthly “Meet with the Director” nights beginning in February.  This will allow parents, students and other community members to meet with me to discuss concerns, ask questions and more importantly, work together to create a better learning community.  The dates of these meetings are as follows:  

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015 – 5:30 pm – Rm.  111

Thursday, March 19th, 2015 – 5:30 pm – Rm.  111

Thursday, April 16th, 2015 – 5:30 pm – Rm.  111

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015 – 5:30 pm – Rm 111

Remember my door is always open.  I am always interested in hearing about what you think and feel can make Northpoint a better school.  


Charles Mentken, Director
