Meet the Principal of Northington Elementary School
Welcome to Northington Elementary School. I am Ingrid Edwards, the principal of this great school, where everyone is a "STAR." We are a hidden gem located right behind Snow Hinton Park in Tuscaloosa. Northington offers a wide variety of opportunities for students to excel both academically and socially. We offer a rich but rigorous curriculum; providing resources for both students and parents.
We are very excited about the 2017-2018 school year at Northington. Everyone is working really hard to make sure that our children succeed to their highest potential. We have definitely set high expectations for Northington, and with confidence, we will exceed these opportunities. We recognize that in order to be successful in our school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know that a strong partnership with you, will make a great difference in your child’s education.
Our faculty and staff are very caring and enjoys working with our children. They participate in ongoing professional development to better serve our students. We are an Alabama Math/Science and Alabama Reading Initiative School. We are involved in PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies). With your help this year, we plan to re-introduce our M.O.M.S. (Moms on the Move), and F.I.R.E (Fathers Involved in Revitalizing Education). There will be lots of exciting things happening, as we continue to showcase our students’ abilities through Talent Shows, providing students with mentors, Belk Readers, Junior Achievement, The Ned Show and lots more. We will continue with our Parent Resource Fair/Parent Day, Community Luncheons, Volunteer Tea, and classes for parents with the University of Alabama (Computer/Finance).
Thanks to our adopt-a-school partner, Cadence Bank, our PTA and other community partners such as Belk for their continued support. Be sure to come by and visit us.
Ingrid Edwards, Ed. S.
