Welcome to North Hill Elementary School! I am excited to be your principal for the 2024-2025 school year. My goal this year is to develop a culture of families and staff working together to encourage and challenge students to do their best work and be their best selves.
As we enter the new school year, my door is always open for your ideas, concerns, and feedback. I look forward to meeting each of you personally in the coming days and weeks. Together, we will make this a great year!
Warm regards,
Shawn Stringer
