Welcome to Our School

  • Dear North Stars Families,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as new principal of North Middle School.  It is an honor to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education!  I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty years.  I have worked with a variety of students' ranging in age from preschool through eighth grade.  My most recent administrative experience was principal of Monroe Elementary in south Everett.  I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to North Middle School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

    Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at NMS by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will focus on social-emotional learning and high-quality instruction with the consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner to continue to increase achievement for all students. It is a priority of mine to get to know all of you and the tremendous assets you bring to our school community. I look forward to meeting you at events such as Student Orientation, Curriculum Night, sporting events, choir and band concerts, PTA events, and more!

    All of us at North Middle School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  My door is always open, and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.  

    I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at North to meet their goals and have a successful school year!


    Be here

    Be You


    At the world’s greatest middle school!


    Kind Regards,

    Ms. Heather Paddock
