Northport K-8 School administration, teachers, tutors and staff came together for a special Thanksgiving luncheon recently to count blessings and share camaraderie. The turkeys were carved by Principal Glenn Rustay for each of the lunch sessions and each administrator thanked the staff for digging in their heels and doing the very important and difficult work of educating students. The Thanksgiving luncheon is an annual event at Northport. The 28-year old school is steeped in tradition while constantly analyzing, evaluating and implementing new educational initiatives. The joy and beauty of the holiday season is not lost on the Northport K-8 School community! Pictured are Principaln Rustay and his administrative team as well as a sampling of teachers and staff.
Northport K-8 School parents packed the second grade classroom of teacher Lorena Paez recently as her students performed a rousing rendition of the fable, “Stone Soup.” Students demonstrated their fluency skills in a Readers Theater performance to concerned and attentive parents and then sang a song about sharing and Thanksgiving. The moral of the story “Stone Soup” fit into the classroom lesson as well as the mission of the school that caring and giving, even just a little, make for a better and stronger community.
