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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

March Madness!

Hello All,

At North View Middle School(NVMS) we believe that actively engaging with text on a daily basis is key to building strong readers. To reinforce the enjoyment of reading, and continue to build a community of NVMS readers we instituted a “March Madness” reading experience for our students. To highlight the list of our school’s most checked out books and have a little fun, our building’s Library Media Specialist and Literacy Coach narrowed it down to 16 different titles, and 4 different genres

Using QR codes posted in the Media Center students voted for their favorite books. Between Feb. 29 and Mar. 4 students vote on “Sweet 16”. During the week of March 7th students voted on the “Elite 8”. We narrowed it down to the “Final 4” the week of March 14th and the week of March 28th the books went head to head for the final championship.

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.
