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.

A Highlight on Language Arts

The week of May 8-12, the 8th grade students at North View Middle School have a special opportunity to work with authors on a Writing Apprenticeship Program.  This program was designed by the students in grade eight. A few months ago they selected three genres of writing that they wanted to learn more about—spoken word, comedy writing, and comics/zine writing.

Now, three local professional writers Levi Weinhagen (comedy),

Fiona Avocado (comics),

and Tou Saiko Lee (spoken word poetry) 

will work with the eighth grade to learn more about their chosen genres, create new pieces within those genres, and share them with their classmates. Through this authentic writing experience with professional, student-selected writers, students will develop an understanding of concepts and tools used within a specific genre, see author/artist as a viable occupation, and experience writing as a joyful and positive activity. Interested students will share their writing at the One World Many Stories event on May 25. The professional writers will also each select three pieces from the week to be published in the annual COMPAS collection of student writing.

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.

  • Your favorite/least favorite part of your job
