    Welcome to the 2018-2019 School year, Wildcats!

    We are looking forward to another year of laughter, teaching and learning. Our teachers and staff have been busy getting our campus ready for everyone and we are excited to see all our Wildcats back again in just a few days!

    This is a year of celebration! Our Wildcats have made tremendous progress this past year! Significant growth (over 10% gain) was made in both Language Arts and Math throughout the grade levels as evidenced by our CAASPP assessment data. This is a direct result of our students’ grit and perseverance, commitment by our families, and high levels of collaboration from our teachers and staff. We could not feel more proud of our Wildcats in all grade levels!

    We are excited to welcome new staff members joining our Northridge team. Please welcome the following teachers and staff when  you see them on campus: Ms. Angel Wurtzer (Kindergarten), Ms. Melissa Garcia (3rd), Mr. Sean Santora (5th grade), Ms. Heidi Huhn (Intervention), and our new counselor, Ms. Rosalie Luttrell!

    Please note that there will be a change in before school care. Discovery Club will continue to offer care; however, there will no longer be a Sunrise Reading Club or Sunrise Computer Club. Please be sure your student is not on campus prior to 8:15 when supervision is available in front of the MP Room.

    If you have not already done so, please consider joining us on social media, where you will receive updates on upcoming events as well as pictures posted of our Wildcat adventures throughout the day. You can find us at @NRWildcats on Instagram, @NRWildcats on Twitter and join our family page on Facebook at Northridge Elementary or the closed group, “Northridge Parent/Family Group.”

    As your site principal, please know that I am committed to ensuring that all families and students feel welcome and safe at Northridge. Please know my door is always open if you have concerns or questions. I return calls and respond to emails within 24 hours. I can be reached at 916-867-2066 or petra.luhrsen@sanjuan.edu.

    I’m looking forward to seeing you all on our first day back, Thursday, August 16th, at 8:45 am. Please note that this is a shortened day (2:05 dismissal).

    Go Wildcats!
