At North View Middle School we believe that teaching and learning approaches should accommodate the diverse skills, abilities, and prior knowledge of young adolescents, cultivate multiple intelligences, draw upon students’ individual learning styles, and utilize digital tools. When learning experiences capitalize on students’ cultural, experiential, and personal backgrounds, new concepts are built on knowledge students already possess. To ensure this happens, we use the nature of young adolescents to guide our instructional decision making.
Because of this belief, our teachers spend a considerable amount of time creating engaging learning opportunities. These opportunities occur in all classes and today I would like to use this post to highlight the Social Studies and EL departments.
Our Social Studies students and English Language Learners (ELLs) are focusing on identifying and citing text evidence. In Social Studies classrooms students are analyzing primary and secondary source documents, and are citing evidence from those sources to demonstrate their learning in a multitude of ways. In ELL classrooms the skills of reading, analyzing, and citing evidence are being taught and reinforced to promote academic success for ELLs in their content classes. In each classroom students are working to connect the events from the past to our lives today, while teachers are also providing them with the academic skills they will need to be successful in their futures.
Social Studies and EL teachers work collaboratively to support students by planning and differentiating instruction, using classroom management strategies that support a variety of language and learning needs, and making thinking visual to support intentional vocabulary and conceptual development. North View has committed to purposeful co-teaching in these classrooms by ensuring that successful partnerships continue learning and growing together, for the benefit of students.
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.
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:

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!

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.
