In case you missed it: “One World Many Stories”

At North View Middle School we believe that no significant learning can occur without a significant relationship. Because of this belief we spend a considerable amount of time building community with our building stakeholders. Our hope is that through this work we will make real connections with our school community to develop a positive school climate and culture that is supportive of all its members. One example of this is bringing families into the school community by hosting our 2nd annual “One World Many Stories” event. This event highlights the many stories of North View.

If you have any questions about this event or anything related to North View Middle School please contact me here.

 

 

New Student Open House

At North View Middle School we believe that empowering our students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful begins before the school year does. An effective transition is key to that success. This spring we held a 5th grade open house event for our incoming students. Parents and students were provided with information about “What to Expect in Middle School”, visited classrooms and were provided a guided tour by our student leaders. If you were unable to attend the open house, I would encourage to contact us to schedule a visit or take a look at the ABCs of North View Middle School information below.

In case you missed it.

At North View Middle School we believe that no significant learning can occur without a significant relationship. Because of this belief we spend a considerable amount of time building community with our building stakeholders. Our hope is that through this work we will make real connections with our school community to develop a positive school climate and culture that is supportive of all its members.

Because of this belief our students spent a considerable amount of time on the first day and week of school working with student leaders and staff to make real connections with each other and learn that people at school care about them. This work help us begin to develop a positive school climate and culture that is supportive of all community members.

As you can see activities included large group activities, community building competitions with their grade level peers and small group activities within their advisory classrooms. Students learned about the school’s expectations for them as community members and got familiar with the most difficult thing about middle school, finding your classes in three minutes!

At North View Middle School we believe that providing challenging and relevant learning opportunities is the key to our students’ success in middle school and beyond. Because of this belief we are excited to offer an AVID exploratory course for 6th grade students next year.  The exploratory course is designed to support students who are in the academic middle on their path to college.  This course is an optional class that 6th grade students can apply to enter.  The AVID program will continue to support these students and prepare them for college as they move on through middle school and high school.  Key components of the AVID Elective course are:

  • Skill development in the areas of Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading
  • Expectations of taking rigorous courses
  • The opportunity to be tutored by college mentors
  • Tutorial activities designed to support students with challenging classwork
  • Exposure to a college-going culture through guest speakers, college visits, college tutors, etc.

For more information, please visit www.avid.org, and feel free to reach out to Lara Woyno, school counselor, at 763-585-7213.
