Box Tops


Box Tops collection has been extended! Bring in your box tops by February 15th and make sure to mark your teacher’s name on the bag/envelope. The class with most box tops will get free donuts!



Lost and Found

There are many jackets in the Lost and Found with no names. Can you help your child identify their jacket?  


Parents, remember to put your child's FIRST AND LAST NAME on all of their school "stuff". We will immediately return any item found with a student's name on it. Items found that we can't identify will be kept for 1 week and then donated to appropriate agencies.




Yearbook sales are entirely online this year.  You can access the yearbook sales site at  All three levels can be found at For elementary, search for North Bay Haven Chtr Acad Elem.



P.E. Days

Parents, please make sure students remember to wear tennis shoes on days they have PE, especially on dress up days. The kids want to play, but wearing heel boots or any boots and flats can cause injuries.  




MEN-tor Program

NBH MEN-tors program is designed for a dad, or father figure, to be able to come to the school and volunteer for the day. Dads will be given a schedule that will allow them to spend time in their child’s classroom and special areas, along with helping in the lunch room and monitoring hallways. MEN-tors will also be given a free t-shirt and their picture taken with their child to be put on the recognition board. This is a great opportunity to get 8 volunteer hours completed.
