Northport 3rd graders recently enjoyed the IRSC Hallstrom Planetarium. This was a wonderful learning experience for a group of really awesome students, teachers and parent chaperones. ❤ 🌟 🌟 🌟
Northport Media Center and some of our sixth graders served as hosts to our community partner, Step Up America. John McIntosh spoke to our students about the three branches of Government and understanding the Constitution and Bill of Rights. He reviewed the 1st Amendment which is Freedom of Speech. John also spoke about the importance of service to your community and volunteering. He spoke about the importance of our military and first responders and taking care of each other. He interacted with students and gave scenarios about ” See Something, Say Something” and to be mindful of surroundings, trust your instincts and if something is out of the ordinary, tell more than one adult — tell every adult.
The mission of Step Up America is to educate our children about becoming responsible and engaged citizens. Mr. McIntosh was a splendid speaker who challenged our students to help in their own community and volunteer. Student Allyssa Lewers said, ” It was a great learning experience, and I found out that some jobs are actually fun and worthwhile. Mr. McIntosh inspired me to help others.”
Northport community celebrated Sharks and Stingrays middle grades students for achievement and perfect attendance. We are so thrilled to welcome parents and families to help and encourage the students.
Spectacular job to all students and teachers!
Thank you all for helping us achieve one of our Northport School Improvement goals of increasing attendance rates.
Mr. Nunez’s 7th grade science class at Manatee Academy created a recipe they like to call “The Kohlrabi Salsa” using fresh ingredients from a garden right outside their classroom! The ingredients include kohlrabi, cilantro, yellow pear tomatoes, and green onion. Way to go!
