This year, all Northridge students Grade 1- Grade 6 will participate in the Great American SpellCheck. It’s a fundraiser that makes sure 100% of the money raised benefits our school. Here’s how it works: Your child studies 50 spelling words and collects pledges from family and friends for every word that he or she spells correctly on the Great American SpellCheck 50 word test. Family and friends can also give a flat donation, if they prefer. Your child improves his or her spelling skills and Northridge enjoys the financial benefits!
