Our school is so proud of our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters and the positive influence and impact that our mentors and tutors project on our students and school community.

Pictured are third grader Josue Mondesir from Janine Wiecks class and his tutor, Sheila Atkins. Sheila started at Northport in August as part of a strong and comprehensive team of caring adults who train with BBBS to work with specific student needs.

The positive growth is palpable at times. Josue is celebrating with Sheila because he improved one grade level in the specialized reading program called iReady. Josue also is working in fourth grade sight words and checking out library books to read for enjoyment. Sheila says, “Josue is a great kid and a hardworking young man. He is very determined!”

We celebrate positive growth and a determined and positive mindset @Northport.
