a Message from the Principal

Dear Cave Cub Families,

Welcome to North Middle School, home of the Cave Cubs! I am Mr. Sale, and I'm delighted to be the principal here at North. I'm a proud Westmont College and USC grad, father of four, and husband to an amazing wife and mom, and I’ve worked in the Grants Pass School District for 8 years. Something fun to know about me is my collection of socks is top-notch. If you’re ever looking to gift me something, a pair of unique, random socks will float my boat!

At North, we value the long-term flourishing of young people, and believe in developing each student’s unique potential as a responsible and resourceful lifelong learner. We are proud of our 80 highly qualified and passionate teachers and support staff who go above and beyond to ensure that every student receives the support they need to succeed. We offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities and events, including Robotics, Woodshop, Art, Media Arts, Theater, Yearbook, and so much more, to provide our students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for success both in and out of the classroom.

This year, we will focus on being “Uncommon” – embracing our unique identity and discovering our purpose. We welcome and value your support and involvement. We believe that communication and collaboration are key to a successful school year, and we encourage parents and community members to stay involved and engaged in our school.

Please check ParentSquare or our website regularly for updates and information on upcoming events and notices, especially for ways to get involved in our PTSA and other avenues for involvement.

Thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children. We look forward to a great year of learning and growth at North!
