Pic of the day: Being on time

At North View Middle School we believe that every student’s academic and personal development should be guided by an adult advocate. Because of this belief, we ensure that each of students is paired with an advisory teacher and meets with this advisory teacher and about 8 to 10 peers every day to discuss college and career readiness, build community and hear about important information related to their school day. Pictured below is a group of sixth graders helping their class mate problem solve how to get to class on time.

If you have any questions about this or anything else related to North View Middle School please connect with me here or follow me at @NVMSPrincipal.

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.

Digital Career Event

North View Middle School is putting on a digital career event and we need your expertise to make it happen! We surveyed our students and they want to learn about you and your career. We are hoping you will put together a two minute video using your smartphone or iPad, to discuss your experience as a professional. This is what they’d like to know:

  • Name
  • Job title and place of employment
  • What a day at your job is like
  • Your favorite/least favorite part of your job
  • How much could you make in your career field
  • How you became interested in your career
  • Where you went to college
  • What the classes in college were like
  • How you paid for college
  • What high school classes students could take to prepare
  • Advice for students interested in going into your field

Thank you for considering sharing your professional experience with North View’s students. The directions below provide the information you will need to upload your video to our YouTube channel by May 12th.

A Year in Pictures

Dear Parents and Friends of North View Middle School

It is truly hard to believe we are almost at the end of this school year and I want to thank the teachers, staff and parents for all they have done this year to make North View Middle School the nurturing, caring, and intellectually challenging school that it is. The students have worked extremely hard and I couldn’t be more proud!

It has been a fantastic year filled with events that have brought us closer together. Some of which can be seen below.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish those students and families leaving us this year all the best in their new high schools.  To our returning families, I want to wish you and your family a safe and enjoyable summer vacation.

Advancement Via Individual Determination

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.
