Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

 

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 to our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students next year.

1436483150

This 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 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 our AVID 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 academic mentors.
  • Tutorial activities designed to support students with challenging course work.
  • 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 Anna Paulson, our AVID instructor.

We are so excited about the amazing start we’ve had here at Summer Knights. These past few weeks students have been making new friends and enjoying new experiences. Each day every student participates in an interactive science, social studies and reading class. Students also participate in two elective classes that they have chosen. Elective classes include: Art, Cooking/Gardening, Bucket Drumming, Digital Music Production, Young Men Mentors, and Teen Annex Leadership. Students also have the option of participating in either Phy Ed, Open Gym Basketball or Hip Hop Zumba class each day. Each week you will receive an email with highlights from our program and information you may need to know about up and coming events. You can also follow us on Facebook, so you can see what your kiddos are up to throughout the day.

Thank you for choosing Summer knights!

CLASS HIGHLIGHT: This week in Art class, students used the internet to find an inspirational quote that meant something to them and others created their own. They then turned their quote into art by creating a Sidewalk Chalk Mural. Here are pics of just a few!

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.
