Connecting with kids…

Standard

NV students were out in full force this week connecting with elementary age students.  Members of The PEACE Project played the roles of superheroes for area cancer patients, literally and figuratively.  Our students dressed up like princesses and superheroes and threw a party for kids who need some positive forces in their lives.  Also this week, our Cosmetology students worked with Whiteford Elementary students, teaching them elements of style and design.   
 

Emily and Parker Stephens: 2016 Babiak Spirit of Service Award Winners

Standard

These twins have combined for more than 1,500 service hours during their time at NV.  Many of those were spent training assistance dogs for the disabled.  The Stephenses were honored at the Sylvania Schools Academic Excellence Foundation Hall of Fame induction on Friday.  Several NV alumni were inducted based on professional accomplishments. Congratulations to Parker and Emily, who were recognized alongside some of NV’s all time greats!   
 

Jazz Fest a hit!

Standard

In true Jazz fashion, our young musicians were roughly planning  improvisations just before the curtains were pulled on the 28th annual NV Jazz Fest.  NV students performed with students from the University of Toledo, and other area high schools.   
 

How do you know everyone in a group is contributing?

Standard

Mrs. Stewart had each student in a group use a different marker, helping her see who was contributing what to their Chemistry calculations.  She also told the small teams that all members needed to be able to explain anything on the whiteboard.  Groups had many options that covered differing difficulty levels and attempted to earn as many points as they could by solving her challenges in one class period. #ingenuity
