Be a Parent Sponsor

Sponsoring the 2020 Spring Benefit enables FON to provide high quality programs and services to our students where the CPS budget falls short.

20th Anniversary Circle: $1,200 includes four tickets with reserved event seating plus two teacher tickets
Benefactor: $900 includes two tickets plus two teacher tickets
Supporter: $600 includes two tickets plus one teacher ticket
Friend: $300 includes two tickets

All parent sponsors will be recognized on the FON website, in FON communications, and at the event.

Friends of Northside has an awesome responsibility when you consider all of the students who rely on the programs and services we fund.

The money we raise at this year's spring benefit will be used for critical operational needs that our CPS budget doesn't cover, including, but not limited to: a social worker to provide emotional support to our students; an extra security guard for after school hours so our students can study and socialize onsite; college counseling support; fine arts programming; athletics; technology; and more.

We hope that you will support our students by purchasing your tickets to the 2020 Taste of Northside Spring Benefit at a Sponsorship Level.

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

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.
