High School Middle School Elementary
On Wednesday May 24th the Mental Health Awareness Club at NAHS is hosting a day long event to raise awareness for people with mental illnesses in the school community. It can be very difficult for many people to navigate and communicate about their mental health and they want to help students feel comfortable about their mental health and feel confident in asking for help if they need it. This event will be a great educational experience for everyone who attends..
The program will be open to the public from 1:00-2:00 to visit the Exhibitors in the Field House, a list of participants can be found at below, and at 2:00 pm, the public is welcome to attend Dr. Dana Osoweicki’s presentation in the NAHS auditorium.
We are currently in the design stage and will be seeking Town Meeting approval for the cost of construction.
The Middle School Building committee meets at 4:00 PM at the Middle School on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Please check the Town Meeting calendar for any changes. Once construction begins, meetings will be held more frequently. The next meeting will be held on April 26, 2023, at 4:00 PM in Room C109 at the Middle School.

Dear North Andover Community,
I am excited to announce the selection of Pamela Lathrop as our Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning starting July 1, 2023, pending School Committee confirmation. We had almost 40 applicants for this position and conducted initial interviews with eight highly-qualified candidates. The four finalists had an opportunity to meet with North Andover stakeholders, which included additional interviews, meetings with parents and teachers, and completion of performance tasks.
Throughout the search process, it was apparent that Ms. Lathrop possesses extensive experience with curriculum implementation, social and emotional learning, and professional development. I was impressed with her intelligence, drive, communication skills, and collaborative approach to leadership.
