Fall Festival Was a Giant Success!

Fall Festival Was a Giant Sucess!

Thank you for all of your support!







The NRE students and teachers would like to thank our entire Northridge community for making our annual Fall Festival a huge success! Throughout the week, many generous donations of baked goods were enjoyed by all. Sixth graders furthered many of their 21st Century Skills such as creativity, critical thinking, resilience, and civic responsibility, as they worked to bring their scary visions to life in the haunted house. Thank you for stopping by to experience all of their hard work. The entire school enjoyed seeing all of the amazingly decorated pumpkins near the office! Parents and students alike had tons of fun playing games throughout the school. Thanks for coming out, and we will scare see you next year!

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
