Today (April 18), I began my brief tenure as Interim Superintendent of the Northgate School District. I will be in this capacity until the Board selects a new Superintendent. It is great to be back in the District where I served as Assistant Superintendent for 6 years and Superintendent for 18 years. Northgate has a special place in my heart and I am grateful to the School Board for giving me the opportunity to serve the District. Generally, I will be in the District 3 days per week mostly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If this changes, I will do my best to post the changes on our website.......Read More

SUPERINTENDENT Search Information:

Dear Northgate Family,

Dr. Pasquerilla will be leaving Northgate on April 17th. It has been an honor working with Dr. Pasquerilla over the past four years. Through his leadership, we are now in a position of strength that will help us continue the never-ending process of providing a safe, challenging and encouraging environment for learning. The Northgate Board of School Directors wishes him the best as he transitions to Superintendent of Schools in the Bethel Park School District.

The Northgate School District has already begun the search to hire a new superintendent. We are actively accepting applications through March 7th, and hope to have the process complete and a new superintendent hired by our
May 9th, Committee of the Whole Meeting. The complete timeline is available here. The District will update this page as new information becomes available.

Thank you for your time and interest in the Northgate School District.

Mr. Gary Paladin
Board President



Juniors take advantage of 20Time
“In today’s business world, we need innovative thinkers who have a passionate drive to solve some incredibly complex problems. Forward-thinking companies know the value of encouraging workers to pursue personally meaningful projects as they exercise their critical thinking skills and create exciting new products to improve life (and the bottom line). At 3M, for instance, workers are given 15 percent of their time to pursue personal projects. One result of this program? Post-It Notes, one of the company’s best-selling items. At Google, engineers are given 20 percent release time and encouragement to pursue fresh ideas that will benefit the company. One impressive result? Gmail.

The value of intrinsic motivation in learning and achievement cannot be overstated. During 20Time, though, I will guide, model, and hopefully inspire your student to find joy in wrangling with a challenge where there is no single “right” answer.”.......Read More
High School Concert Choir and Middle School Chorus News
Sarah Reid performed The National Anthem for select WPIAL Soccer and Basketball Tournaments throughout the year. She represented our School District with great pride and the positive feedback received was tremendous. These were incredible opportunities for Sarah and she thanks Jim Collins from the WPIAL, Mr. Kyle, and Mrs. Winovich for vocal coaching her to success.

Gillian Elliott and Jessie Roos were selected as Junior Rotarians for the 2015-2016 School Year. Gillian, Jessie, Lauren Kennelly, and Mrs. Winovich all attended the Ethics Symposium at Duquesne University (sponsored by Rotary International). It was an informative day and overall rewarding experience for everyone. We look forward to Northgate attending this special event next year. We would like to thank The North Borough's Rotary Club for their continued support of our Choral Program......Read More
Future Chef Contest
Elementary students from Avalon and Bellevue learned the importance of healthy eating while honing in on their culinary skills thanks to student nutrition provider Sodexo and their Future Chefs: Healthy Breakfast Challenge. The national program, which is in its fifth year and part of Sodexo’s commitment to promoting well-being in support of achievement, was created to get students thinking about making healthy food choices. Students took on the challenge by submitting thirty-eight healthy breakfast recipes that were judged on: Originality, kid friendly, ease of preparation and healthy attributes. Of the thirty-eight students, five challengers were chosen; Faith Boyce making her Fruity Fortress, Bella Hankinson making her Breakfast Lasagna, Olivia Rajakovic and her O’s Bagelos, Kaylee Stewart and her Breakfast Rap, and Lily Weaver and her Healthy Fruit and Oat Smoothie. The five finalists had to prepare and present their creations before a panel of celebrity judges that included Mrs. Nancy Silay, and Chefs Sean Conley and Mike Cope owners of Tallulah’s Catering in Etna.........Read More
Be There Award Winner – Miss Trimber!!!!! 
Miss Trimber, Avalon and Bellevue Guidance Counselor, was chosen as one of the very selective Be There Award winners for her incredible work with the attendance program in the elementary school buildings. There were over 45 incredible nominations but Miss Trimber’s hard work stood out and she was a quick choice to be recognized and chosen for her unwavering dedication to the program. The Northgate family is incredibly proud of Miss Trimber for earning this reward and for her devotion to all of the elementary students.
February Attendance Challenge Reward Day
On March 3rd at Bellevue and March 4that Avalon Elementary Schools, students who met the February Attendance Challenge of not missing school, were rewarded with a video game day in the gymnasium. This reward was made available by the company GameOn , which provided race car driving, Mario Cart and Just Dance for the students enjoyment. The reward was made possible by the financial support of Mrs. Janice Miller Stein, owner of Miller Funeral Home, and District Magistrate Tara Smith. They have supported attendance initiatives at Avalon and Bellevue Elementary schools the last two years. The students and staff are very appreciative of their support!......Read More
Pi Day
The sixth graders celebrated "pi day" Monday, 3/14 by reading the "Sir Cumference" book series, measuring circular objects to calculate pi, ate circular foods, and competed in our memorization challenge. This year's sixth grade memorized an amazing grand total of 1,577 digits of pi, showing that memorizing digits is as easy as pi. Our individual school record was broken. Twice! Sanjit Darji first broke the previous record by reciting 250 digits! Brendan King broke that record an hour later by reciting an unheard of 318 digits! Congratulations to all the students that participated!
Northgate Forensics Sponsored Their First Tournament
The Northgate Forensics Team hosted their first tournament on February 20th, at the Middle/High School. A total of sixteen teams from the surrounding area, about 300 students and staff, came and competed. Northgate did very well receiving a total of five 1st place ribbons, seven 2nd place ribbons, and eight 3rd place ribbons. We have so many people to thank for making this event possible; the PTOs from both elementary schools for selling food at the event, the custodial staff who prepared the building and cleaned up after, Sodexo for donating a portion of the food that was provided for the judges, numerous Middle/High School students that volunteered their Saturday morning to act as hall runners, and our forensic parents that helped with countless tasks throughout the morning. Everyone did a great job representing Northgate and making this event a tremendous success.
