As we continue to progress through the year I want to use this forum to keep you updated on opportunities to be involved in the school community. Three items to note for this month are our upcoming Turkey Bingo meeting, parent V.I.P days, and our Parent Advisory Group. Please plan on participating in any or all of the opportunities available to you.
Next Thursday, November 19th, is our annual Fall Family Bingo night. We will be giving away the fun prizes, along with turkeys and complete Thanksgiving meals in a box. I encourage you to come out with your families and spend some quality time with your school community.
Our Parent Advisory Group (P.A.G.) aims to improve communication and involvement among parents, students, and the school. During our meetings you will be provided with an opportunity;
- To become informed about what is happening at NVMS,
- Raise questions regarding policies and procedures at NVMS,
- Gain clarification regarding issues related to NVMS,
- Create an environment that supports ongoing parent involvement at NVMS,
- Address issues, concerns and suggestions presented to the group and to be involved in the solution and on-going feedback.
If you were unable to attend our last meeting, please consider coming to our next meeting on November 24th, 2015-2016 from 6:00-7:00pm. The purpose of this meeting will be to help families understand the integrated work to support equitable student achievement at NVMS and how you can support it. Please be sure to contact Diana Bledsoe at 763-585-7200 if you are planning on attending.
I would also like to invite you into the building during the school day for a comprehensive introduction to North View Middle School. Our school’s purpose is to create an educational environment in which students are given the opportunity to reach their full potential, and I would love for you to see this in action during one of our V.I.P. days.
Our next V.I.P. day will be held on November 23rd from 10:00-11:30 am and will include an opportunity for parents to tour our campus, attend classes, dine in our cafeteria, and see our school in action. If this is something that interests you, please call the school at 763-585-7200 to sign up. Space is limited so sign up early.
