Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back to the start of another PANDASTIC school year! The faculty, staff, and I are delighted to take this opportunity to welcome each of you to the 2021-2022 school year. Whether you are new to our school or a second generation Panda, we invite you to North Elementary where we are dedicated to providing many opportunities to engage in 21st Century learning experiences.  We invite you to become familiar with the Parent/Student Handbook so that you are aware of policies and procedures that are in place at North Elementary School.

A strong partnership between home, school, and the community contributes to the success of our students.  We recognize you as partners and know your active involvement enhances our school and promotes academic success. We encourage you, as the central adult in your child’s life, to be a supportive member of the Panda community.  We are committed to creating a learning environment based on high expectations in the areas of academics and character development, while inspiring our students to do their very best by demonstrating PANDA PRIDE! Pride in their accomplishments, pride in their behavior, and pride in their school.

Our staff believes that all students can meet high expectations.  We believe that our students can exceed requirements set forth by the state of North Carolina.  We believe that our students will have bright futures as they continue their education.  We believe that parents and students are valuable members of our community.  We want to build lasting partnerships with families that will help us shape the lives of our students.

We are looking forward to building a team that can work together to provide the best educational experience for your child.

Remember: At North Elementary, You Can’t Hide That Panda Pride!


Carla Murray, Principal
