April is designated as National School Library Month! Northport 9/11 Children’s Memorial Library is a tribute to the learning and achievement that occurs on a daily basis at our school. Please help us celebrate our library by giving a salute to the research, books checked in and out daily, and the many programs that happen in the media center to extend and promote knowledge and learning. We promote free choice in reading, and librarians are always on hand to promote the love of good books. Our services and programs are planned and ALWAYS reflect the love of our students. We mindfully plan for the teaching of citizenship, service, empathy, kindness, commitment, respect and integrity. Please thank a public school librarian/media specialist every chance you get!
Northport K-8 middle school girls are champion basketball players! The girls, coached by teacher Stephanie Soomar, recently played their final game. Every player contributed and the girls played their hearts out to bring home the District victory.
Northport K-8 participated in the 2019 Relay For Life recently held at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center this month. Northport is happy to provide community service and to receive the lessons that the students learn about cancer, care, kindness, and empathy. Northport’s team won Best in Show for the Lip Sync contest and participated in the Luminaria Walk and the Road to Recovery. We are so thankful for our entire Relay For Life team for their participation!
