Points of Pride
North Loop School has the best librarian, Ms. Santos! She has been at our school for over 20 years and is loved by everyone! She started as a kindergarten teacher and then moved on to be our librarian. She not only takes care of the library, but is also a yearbook advisor, a cheer coach, webmaster, and a maker space innovator. Aside from work, she is a wife and mother of two, who enjoys exercising, traveling, reading (of course), and baking. We are very lucky to have her.
Did you know all students at North Loop have an electronic device? As part of the Engage Me district initiative, North Loop Elementary holds four Engage Me Showcases for kindergarten through sixth-grade students. Students present a STEM project to other students using hands-on activities and technology.The students are full of excitement as they share their knowledge with each other.
Aside from having a device, students at North Loop Elementary also have access to Sphero robots and Google Expeditions (virtual reality field trips). We pride ourselves on teaching students what they need to succeed in the 21st century.
Congratulations to North Loop Elementary students who placed in the District Team Quest competition and will be heading to the Regional Team Quest competition. The team collaborated on different challenges such as Engineering, Math Creativity, and Trivia. We are very proud of our students, GO JAGUARS!
Our school is very involved with our Partners in Education. North Loop teachers and JTF-North soldiers held a volleyball game to benefit the Child Crisis Center. All students donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo and various items as an entry fee. Students were enthusiastic to participate in the community effort. Students also had a winter dance where they donated non-perishable foods. All food was donated to the Open Arms Community of El Paso (Food Pantry), which provides food to the people in need in the area.
