Summer is here! 

As we wrap up the year at Northside, I want to thank the families, staff members, community members, and students who made it one of my FAVORITE years in education so far! Alliance City Schools is a wonderful place to be a part of and I am already looking forward to another school year ahead.

Summer brings many benefits, including additional rest, play, and travel. On the other hand, summer's drawback is that many students forget the skills and concepts they have learned and come in the fall knowing less than they did in the spring. This is referred to as the "Summer Slide".

The best way to avoid the dreaded "Summer Slide" is to keep reading, keep practicing the math concepts you learned this year, and use summer activities as teachable moments.

I encourage all of you to visit Rodman Library for books and if you want to practice those math concepts, visit Kahn Academy online.

Dedicated athletes will agree, the more you put in, the more you get out...and that applies to school as well.

Once again, thank you to everyone who made this an incredible school year. If you would like to contact me, please email garrenst@alliancecityschools.org or you can call the school office at 330.829.2269 through the end of June.


Mrs. Stephanie Garren
