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.

The First Week Assembly

At North View Middle School we believe that no significant learning can occur without a significant relationship. Because of this belief our incoming students spent a considerable amount of time during the first week of school working with student leaders and staff to make real connections with each other, learn that people at school care about them and begin to develop a positive school climate and culture that is supportive of all community members. In addition to learning school expectations, we also like to recognize our students at all school and grade level assemblies.

Our assemblies help develop school spirit; feelings of community and unity among students. It enables students to share stories and performances, as well as their abilities/talents. Assemblies also provide an opportunity to remind students of building wide expectations and recognize students who contribute to a positive school community through recognitions. Students taking part also have a chance to work with students they may otherwise not usually choose to; opening minds, broadening horizons. Included below are photos of our recent all school assembly.

Activities include large group activities and competitions with their grade level peers and small group activities within their advisory classrooms. Students also connected with the adults that are here to support them. One group that is featured in our first “Carpool Karaoke” video was my administrative team. This video was shown during our Welcome Fest on the first day of school.

Students were also able to learn about the school’s expectations for them as new community members and get familiar with the most difficult thing about middle school, opening your first combination locker. The video below outlines my message to students about being kind to each other.

When asked about their experiences during the first week, many students stated that this was a great way to start the school year because they felt welcomed and excited about joining a new school community.

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.

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.
