After School Programming-Girls on the Run

 

At North View Middle School we believe that our students education does not end when the school bell rings. Because of this belief we offer a number of after school activities for our students to participate in. Today I would like to highlight our Girls on the Run  program. The program is accessible to all girls regardless of athletic ability or fitness level and considers the range of ages and varied experiences of middle schoolers. Activities include strength and conditioning training and the season culminates with the “Girls on the Run 5k”. This celebratory event was held this past weekend on June 3rd and underscores the confidence, competence, connection, character and caring they’ve been developing in the program.

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.

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!

Recognizing Excellence

At North View Middle School we believe that recognizing our school community members for their accomplishments is key to building a school community that fosters a shared commitment to high expectations for student achievement, high standards of teaching and learning, and a culturally competent environment where diversity is valued.

Whether it is a teacher who is honored was nominated for the VFW teacher of the year award for her ability to help students collaborate and engage in learning, conversation, and reflection about the role of equity in relation to American History, civic responsibility, and patriotism.

Or a student who was recognized by the district for their “Significant Investment in Their Own Learning” honor.  As his principal  I have watched this young man develop both academically and personally into a mature individual epitomizing the characteristics that the North View Middle School community believes are essential for success in school and in life.

Or Mrs. Hill who has been with North View for over forty years and was recently recognized for the district’s “Significant Investment in the Betterment of Education” honor. Mrs. Hill has been with North View for over forty years. First as a teacher, and currently as an Educational Support Professional and has positively impacted many lives at North View as a result.

Mrs. Hill

 

In addition to honoring individuals we also take great pride in honoring groups of students who contributed to the school community. Pictured below are students who were recently recognized for the academic achievement by earning a spot on the A and B honor roll.

Please help me in congratulating them!

After School Programming-Public Art Club

 

At North VMS we believe that our students education does not end when the school bell rings. Because of this belief we offer a number of after school activities for our students to participate in. The first I would like to highlight in this post is our Public Art Club. The Public Art Club meets after school at North View Middle School to create art that can be staged in a public domain to be accessible to all. This year they created displays to highlight the five regions of the world.  The work is displayed on our locker banks and represent the 50+ countries that our students and their families originate from.  The regions are Africa, The Americas, Asia/Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East. The groups next project will focus on the foods of these 5 regions and will be displayed in the cafeteria. Thank you to Ms. Plum, Visual Arts teacher at North View, for leading this group of students.

Whether it is through our trimester assemblies where the purpose is to recognize each other, build community and re-teach expectations. 

 

By administrators being “head over heels” to honor groups of students that create and attain classroom goals like being on-time, dressed and successful during the building’s swimming unit. 

Or at our annual Black History Celebration night. Where we put our student and staff talents on display.
