Northport Celebrates Eighth Annual Unity Day!

This year, Northport K-8 School celebrates our 8th annual Unity Day. Students from across the VKP-8 school make posters and banners and march throughout a path pre-marked by our PE coaches. All day long, during resource time, students can be seen marching, carrying homemade decorations and singing choruses of “No More Bullies! No More Drugs!”

Northport combines our message of anti-bullying and anti -drugs every single year. The students look forward to Unity Day and the teachers make the day special. We also hold Unity Day door decorating contests for elementary classes and yearly anti-bullying/anti-drug essay contests in the middle grades. Many thanks to our prevention specialist, Maryanne Warren, who helps organize the event. Special thanks to Coaches Kim Kanada, Darryn Ploeckelman, Donald Patterson, Art Teacher Valerie Kirk, Band Director Joseph Bigler and all the other great and truly dedicated staff members and teachers at Northport who made the day so special and empowering for the kids!!!!!!
