Northside Middle School
Congratulations Northside Middle School for being selected a "2014 Schools to Watch" for the State of Virginia by The National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform
Reminder that Physicals will be done by Southwest Health Focus here at Northside on Sat. May 17th. Northside students can enter first at 8:00am , but can receive a physical anytime from 8:00-11:30. Have your athletes come to the front of the Alumni Gym. Cost is only $17 and this Physical will be good through June 30, 2015. This is a great way to have your athletes meet the VHSL requirement, and the requirement set forth by Roanoke County that states students participating in open gyms or any practice must have a current up to date Physical. There will not be a Concussion form this year included so this should make the process be much quicker.
Please fill out this survey (link below) by April 18, 2014.
In doing so, you are sharing your perspective and feelings about very important issues. As a community, it is vital to learn from parents what their challenges and experiences are in raising their children. Questions mirror questions that were asked on the Youth Risk Behavior Survey taken by our 6th-12th graders in mid-February.
The short survey is completely ANONYMOUS and CONFIDENTIAL. Information will be gathered and tallied through Virginia Tech. We will not be able to identify the individual participant or the section of the county represented.

Thank you for your participation.
Please call Hayley Poland, Coordinator of School Counseling Services and Student Records, at 562-3900, extension 10234, if you have any questions.

Attention Parents: New this year is the ability for parent/guardians to access Blackboard, our online learning platform. Each parent/guardian is issued an account that enables access to view student grades, announcements, and class assignments for each of their students. A letter was sent home through your child so please ask them for that letter which will explain your username and password. If you have any problems, please contact your child's homeroom teacher so we can assist you.
Fall Sports Schedules can be found on the Athletics link at the top of this page.
Please reference this map noting the changes in regard to the gates that will be open for our football games at Bogle Stadium. As of September 4, 2013, only the two gates on the opposite ends of the home side will be open for entering the stadium. The gates on the visitor’s side will not be open. The problem arises because neither Cave Spring High School or Hidden Valley opens these visitor-side gates for their games. The home side has 3 areas to park (see scanned map) which offers adequate parking for spectators.
Keep up-to-date on the athletic programs at NMS and NHS. Follow this link to the Booster Club website: www.northsideboosterclub.com

- The Northside Middle School culture is based on collaboration between the teachers, staff, administration, students, and school community. We strive to create a safe learning environment that is conducive to student learning and the creation of positive relationships. The Norsemen Code, which is based on reinforcing positive student behaviors and correcting inappropriate student behaviors, is the primary tool to accomplish our goal.
