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!

Recognizing Excellence

At North View Middle School we believe that recognizing our school community members for their accomplishments is key to building a school community that fosters a shared commitment to high expectations for student achievement, high standards of teaching and learning, and a culturally competent environment where diversity is valued.

Whether it is a teacher who is honored was nominated for the VFW teacher of the year award for her ability to help students collaborate and engage in learning, conversation, and reflection about the role of equity in relation to American History, civic responsibility, and patriotism.

Or a student who was recognized by the district for their “Significant Investment in Their Own Learning” honor.  As his principal  I have watched this young man develop both academically and personally into a mature individual epitomizing the characteristics that the North View Middle School community believes are essential for success in school and in life.

Or Mrs. Hill who has been with North View for over forty years and was recently recognized for the district’s “Significant Investment in the Betterment of Education” honor. Mrs. Hill has been with North View for over forty years. First as a teacher, and currently as an Educational Support Professional and has positively impacted many lives at North View as a result.

Mrs. Hill

 

In addition to honoring individuals we also take great pride in honoring groups of students who contributed to the school community. Pictured below are students who were recently recognized for the academic achievement by earning a spot on the A and B honor roll.

Please help me in congratulating them!

Whether it is through our trimester assemblies where the purpose is to recognize each other, build community and re-teach expectations. 

 

By administrators being “head over heels” to honor groups of students that create and attain classroom goals like being on-time, dressed and successful during the building’s swimming unit. 

Or at our annual Black History Celebration night. Where we put our student and staff talents on display.

Our students are at the center of everything we do . Please consider joining us at any of our upcoming events.

World Read Aloud is Today!

The purpose of World Read Aloud Day is to reinforce the enjoyment of reading, and continue to build a community of NVMS readers.  In honor of this day, each teacher will be given a portion of a 5 minute mystery.  They are asked to read the first minute or two of the story at the beginning of the hour. You’ll see with picture pictures below that the story is divided by hours 5, 6, 7, and 8. And there is a chunk of text specifically for each hour.  Students are to listen to see if, by the end of the day, they can pull the clues together to make a guess as to “who dunnit”.  Students will then be able to enter their guesses on Thursday in the media center. Students’ names will be drawn from correct guesses to win a book of their choice.
