Northport K-8 students in Karen Nystrom’s seventh grade civics classes are tackling some tough issues this year as students delve into the affairs of community government.  Students use Media Center resources, classroom text and guest speaker information to look at issues from all sides to process new information and to be able to elaborate on important issues.  Important guest speakers who will impart vital information  this month are School Board member Troy Ingersoll who will discuss student homelessness in St. Lucie County and SLC School Safety Specialist Robert Berk who will discuss student behavior on busses and safety.
