A Spotlight On Check & Connect

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, and draw upon students’ individual learning styles. 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 decision making. Because of this belief, our staff spend a considerable creating engaging learning opportunities. One of those opportunities is our building and district’s partnership with the Check & Connect program featured in the video below.

I hope you enjoyed this spotlight. If you have any questions about this or anything else related to North View Middle School please connect with me here or follow me at @NVMSPrincipal.

Talking to Children About Violence: Tips for Parents and Teachers

Families and school personnel must work collaboratively in helping to ensure a sense of security for students in school. The first thing we must do, is talk to our students about their feelings regarding this topic, particularly after an act of school violence occurs in one of our nation’s schools. The infographic below may be of interest to you as you talk to your child about school safety. The full article found here can also be a resource for you.

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.

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!
