Kindergartners in Nancy Yost’s class at Northport K8 produced a charming display for parents and grandparents recently in their classroom. Students used singing, verse and rhyme to showcase learning three main requirements for plants to grow: sun, air and water. Students used verse to portray the months of the year and used pictures to impress with their vocabulary skills. A few of the words were stumble, journey, absurd and gorgeous. Much hard work, determination and family support helps to make Nancy Yost’s classroom and her students a success story for all students. Special thanks to classroom volunteer Sally Poole who is an integral facet in the successful classroom. Mrs. Yost encouraged parents to continue working with their children over the summer to make the burst into first grade a tremendous success.
Northport K-8 administration, faculty, staff and families united for a terrific cause recently. The Northport family joined with the American Cancer Society to support Relay For Life held at Digital Domain Park. The school based organizers, third grade instructor Tiffany Tredor and middle grades math instructor Mehgan Drost generated support for the walk by promoting the Relay For Life continually through the school year to students and families. This year, thanks to the Relay For Life team, the school met the goal of $2500 and turned in $2696. Northport K8 tuned into the theme of the Relay For Life this year by decorating for Charles Dickens classic story, “A Christmas Carol!” Northport K-8 School is so pleased to be an integral piece of this terrific community based initiative.
Northport K-8 first graders in Michelle Hicks’ classroom reviewed three dimensional shapes as they prepare for the up coming SAT 10 testing. Students utilized Venn diagrams to sort shapes based on whether each shape was rolled, stacked or both. Students are learning to check faces, vertices and edges to figure our shape. Mrs. Hicks’ lesson demonstated lively paced instruction, chunking content into “digestible bites” and reflection on information learned. Pictured are first graders McKayla Sanon and Walky Julien.
