The 2019-2020 Annual Appeal Remains Critical to Support Northside

Bring Your Donation to Report Card Pick-Up

Thursday, November 14, 12:00 - 6:00 pm
Stop by the Friends of Northside table just inside the main entrance to make your Annual Appeal donation via cash, check or credit card, and learn more about how you can be an active member of the NCP community. We look forward to talking with you!

The New Library is Open!

Stop by the library to see first hand how parent donations make a difference to our school. Funds raised at our Spring Benefit in March helped pay for much needed renovations to the the library. Principal Mest will be speaking at 4:15 pm in the library.

Ask Your Employer About Matching Contributions

Employer donations can double or triple the impact of your donation. That means your $50 donation can result in up to $150 for Northside! If you aren't sure if your company matches employee contributions, contact your human resources department.

Click HERE to read the appeal letter from Principal Mest.

Click HERE (English) or HERE (Español) to download a paper form to return to the main office with payment.

NCP Fall Play: Sense & Sensibility

Thursday, November 21 at 7:00 pm
Friday, November 22 at 7:00 pm
Saturday, November 23 at 7:00 pm
Sunday, November 24 at 3:00 pm

A playful adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

NCP students complete whirlwind trip to 7th Annual Yale Certamen Invitational

A group of nine Northside Latin students traveled to New York City and Yale to compete in Yale's 7th Annual Certamen Invitational. In addition to enjoying the culture and cuisine of New York, they also put forth a valiant effort at the invitational.

Northside's Advanced team of Deena Al-Ali, Matthew Figueras, Gina Jagminas, Richard Lam, and Ruba Memon played very well but ultimately missed out on the semifinals.

Pitted against Boston Latin, the top-scoring team after the first three rounds of competition, and a team from Harriton, NCPers Reem Al-Ali, Joe Giambrone, Gannon Lemaster, and Zoe Okun took the BLS team — the team that went on to win the championship in the next round — to a tie-break round but ultimately lost.

FON Connect

Friends of Northside uses a customer/constituent relationship management (CRM) system known as FON Connect that allows our parent volunteer organization to work from one database for events. It is not a CPS database and is completely different and separate from the CPS Parent Portal and Northside's EPay website.

FON Connect also serves as the NCP Family Directory and allows users to review their donation history, update their contact information, register for upcoming events, and more. Each parent has a separate account. Transactions, including donations, are recorded in the account of the parent who initiated the transaction or donation.

If you’re new to FON Connect, you'll need to set up a login and password. To do so:

▪ Click HERE.
▪ Click on “Forgot Password?”
▪ Enter your email address.
▪ Check your email for the link to create a login name and password.
Click HERE.
Click on “Forgot Password?”
Enter your email address.
Check your email for the link to create a login name and password.

Once you have set up your FON Connect account, keep your login and password in a safe, convenient place because they will be your keys to the database throughout your years at Northside.

Parking lot safety

Parking Lot Safety

Our NCP school parking lot is a bustling place before and after school. Families dropping off and picking up students are asked to be mindful of both safety and courtesy. Please assist us by ensuring that traffic lanes stay clear during drop-off and pick-up times and by following the parking lot procedures.

Parking Lot Procedures

ALL vehicles MUST exit onto Kedzie. You may enter the parking lot from Kedzie or Bryn Mawr, but regardless of where you enter, all cars must exit onto Kedzie. For the safety of our students and the rest of the Northside community, please do not exit onto Bryn Mawr.

The first few days will be busy at drop-off and pick-up. Please, for the safety of all involved, plan to give yourself enough time for drop-off and pick-up and please be patient while in the parking lot. Pulling over to the curb on the right as your student enters or exits your vehicle keeps students safe and traffic flow efficient. Our safety team will be actively working to ensure that students arrive and depart safely each day and that vehicles in school lots remain damage-free.
