Willie Wonka and Northport Teacher Make a Home Visit!

Willie Wonka and Northport Teacher Make a Home Visit!

Teacher Janine Wiecks made a delivery to every student in her class recently. She was able to see almost the entire class. It was so hard to not give hugs and keep her social distance. Each goodie bag has a copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with a personalized note; some Wonka bookmarks, a golden ticket, and scrumptious candies. AWESOME gestures and gifts Mrs. Wiecks. ❤

Northport Teachers and Staff Celebrate Students!

Northport Teachers and Staff Celebrate Students!

Many teachers and staff members from Northport have made special home deliveries to students who are meeting or exceeding expectations for Distance Learning, but students are also being recognized for many other reasons.   A great day, a great week, a great hour, being kind or just going that extra mile to be a great kid deserves a celebration in Northport’s book.  The celebrations never stop for the Northport community.  The school has kept the ball rolling and the students and families are engaged now more than ever.  Keep up the awesome work!

Southport Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

Southport Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week started off at Southport with administration and staff members meeting to put gift bags together for our teachers and staff. Each bag contained sweet treats for the week, fun projects to enjoy, kindness notes from students and colleagues, and a commemorative distance learning #HurricaneStrong tee-shirt. Teachers were invited to drive by and pickup up their gift bags and a nice lunch box from administration. We also had a nice surprise and support from some of our amazing students who dropped off posters, flowers, and balloons! Everyone was delighted to see each other, keeping social distancing in mind, happily giving air hugs to their Southport family members.

West Gate K-8 Sends Flat Teachers

West Gate K-8 Sends Flat Teachers

In true “Flat Stanley” style, several kindergarten and first grade teachers sent their students ‘Flat Teachers’. This creative gesture was an effort to reach their kids and not only remind them they are thinking of them daily, but also to inspire their students to share their quarantined adventures with their ‘flat teacher’. Students can share their adventures through Canvas, Remind, FlipGrid, and Teams. Mrs. Buehrig, Mrs. Downing, Mrs. Godoy, Mrs. Smith, Ms. Miller, Ms. Harris, and Ms. Jines are all looking forward to the many adventures and stories to come.
