What a wonderful “Northport Dads Bring Your Child to School 2016” event. The kids were thrilled to have dads walk them to classes and to introduce them to their teachers and their friends. Everyone shared a great time eating donuts and having coffee, juice and water and meeting other dads. We care about our dads and all the positive males in our kids lives because the role they play is so powerful. Having a positive male role model can transform a child into a successful student and good citizen. Dads pledged to support their children’s education, to set high expectations, to stay informed about what happens at school and to encourage their child to do their very best.
Thank you everyone for coming out to Northport today! Pictured: Glenn McKinney(dad) and his five children

SLW Centennial High School and Treasure Coast High School English and reading teachers teamed up for an Advanced Thinking Maps training focused on evidence-based writing. Teachers utilized scaffolded, structured maps to guide the argumentative writing process. The teachers and administrators present were inspired and well prepared to, in turn, inspire and prepare our SLPS students! It was an effective and instrumental talent development day!
