Principal's Message


Dear Parents and Guardians of Northridge Intermediate School,

I am very excited to introduce myself to you as the new Principal at your school.  As you may or may not know, I also serve as the Middle School Principal. It is my intent to give the same attention and dedication to the Intermediate Building as I do to the MS.  With that in mind, I will be assisted by Mrs. Robin Elliott, she will serve as Teacher on Special Assignment. Mrs. Elliott and I will do our very best to be present and available for all students and parents at the building.

Please know, the door will always be open at the Intermediate Building for you and your children. We will always be willing to talk or just listen if you have any questions or concerns.  In a short period of time, as I have made my way in and out of each classroom on numerous occasions I have witnessed extremely dedicated and caring teachers and staff giving everything they have to help your child reach their potential.  It is our goal to assist each child academically, emotionally and socially in any way we can.

Finally, I want you to know that each day is a New Day at Northridge Intermediate.  We will open each day with a “community meeting” led by Mrs. Elliott and our counselor Amber Bowmen.  This has proven to be a wonderful way to start the day.  Following the community meeting, as students move from class to class, I can assure you that we all will be doing our best to offer wonderful opportunities and possibilities for each child.

I want to thank you in advance for your support of Northridge Intermediate School.


John R. Rathburn
