Welcome from Mrs. Sydnor-Waugh

  • August 2019 

    Dear North Elementary Eagle Parents, 

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!  Our mission is to inspire the North Elementary Community to Excellence.  I am excited to serve as the new principal at North Elementary School.  I am excited to serve the students, teachers, families, and the community.  Children are our greatest investment! This year, we will focus on ATTENDANCE, ACADEMICS, BEHAVIOR, & CHARACTER (A2BC).  North’s teachers and staff are committed to the following beliefs:  

    • Learning is a priority for our school. All students can learn.
    • A safe and structured learning environment promotes student learning.
    • Students learn best when they are actively engaged in learning and have opportunities for success.
    • Students need social and emotional support as they develop.  
    • ALL school personnel, parents, students, and community members share in the responsibility for advancing  our students.  
    • Instructional practices should be challenging.  


    We are pleased to welcome, Mrs. Rhonda Nelson-Daye as our Assistant Principal.  Mrs. Nelson-Daye is deeply rooted in the community and committed to North’s success.  She attended North Elementary School and is eager to support our students and their families!  

    Ms. Tamara Hinton is our new school counselor.  She is eager to get to know you and is committed to help our students to be successful.  She will be a great resource for you when you have questions or need help with your child.  Please feel free to contact her.  

    This handbook and the Person County Schools Parent Gazette contains important information that will be helpful for you throughout the year.  Please keep these documents in a safe place for you to refer to if you have questions.  Our teachers send folders/agendas home daily with information for you, and we appreciate every time you read, sign, email, or call us.  If we have a correct cell phone number, we can send you notices on your smartphone! If you text, the CLASS DOJO and REMIND apps will allow your teachers to send homework and other important information to you instantly!  Please follow us on Facebook or check us out on our website, https://www.pcsnc.org/Domain/11.  

    I hope that you will join us throughout the school year to attend our Parent and Family Engagement Nights and school activities.  

    We are looking forward to a wonderful school year!  I appreciate your support and your concern.  


    Nell Sydnor-Waugh, Principal
