Welcome to class!

Dear students,

Hi! My name is Mrs. Haugen, and I will be your 2nd grade teacher this year at North Star School. I am so excited that you will be in my class this year! I can’t wait to meet you and start our year together. I know you are going to love 2nd grade.


I am married to Mr. Haugen who works at the North Star High School and we have two children Melanie who lives in Cando and Josh who lives in Mandan.


The 2nd grade classroom has moved to the main floor of the elementary school, right by the front door.  Look for your owl on the door to see if you are in the right place.


I will try to send home a newsletter every one or two weeks so you know what we are working on in class.  In addition to that, we will be using Class Dojo which is an app that you can access to see how your child is doing throughout the day, as well as send and receive pictures and messages.  I will send home your access code the first or second week of school.

Please feel free to contact me at school at 701-968-4416, by email at I welcome your thoughts and am looking forward to working together to make second grade a successful year!


North Star Elementary students are offered a milk break each afternoon. Cost for the milk is $.60/ day. Please be aware that the cost of the milk program is NOT covered with Free/Reduced lunch. Many families choose to send a snack with their student each day for milk break.

Your child may bring in a water bottle each day and will be allowed to keep it at their desk to drink throughout the day.

“The more that you read, The more things you will know. The more that you learn, The more places you’ll go.” Dr. Seuss

I look forward to seeing you August 23!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Your teacher,

Mrs. Haugen
North Star School
