Mrs. Nelson’s freshmen scientists are processing data from their pendulum lab where they set a length and measured the responding time. They are making a model they will use to determine the length of the mystery pendulum when they can only measure the time. They are using their Chromebooks and the Google platform to chart their data.
Ms. Diehl’s sophomore scientists are conducting an experiment that involves different solutions and their impact on potato saturation.
Mr. Malcolm’s Government students are learning about the early forms of government in the United States, and what forces led to the creation of our current system. Students are able to access the materials for the lecture and question and answer session on their Chromebooks…
Mr. Malcolm is also using an on-line tool to allow students to communicate their thoughts on questions he poses in class. Having everyone respond ensures that all students are taking ownership of the material.
Mr. Lucius is also having students use their Chromebooks in class to measure student mastery. This week, students were using the Kahoot website to answer questions about material they had recently learned.
Ms. Stefango’s AP English students are already preparing for the AP test in May by taking a practice test, which will give her some baseline data on where her students stand with their ability to demonstrate key skills measured on the real assessment in May.
Several of Mrs. Thiel’s orchestra musicians had the opportunity last weekend to perform with the BGSU Philharmonia after a day at the College of Musical Arts. Mrs. Thiel is thrilled with the talent level and work ethic of the Chamber Orchestra.

The Marching Band performs three different shows each football season. This past Friday was the 2nd time performing songs that remind us of summer fun. Check out the show in the below video.

Our Boys Soccer Team was slated for a big showdown with St. John’s Jesuit, as both teams were ranked in the top ten in the state of Ohio…
Unfortunately, lightning shortened the match. The Wildcats and Titans will resume the contest, tied at 0-0, with 13:13 to go in the first half on Saturday, October 6th.
Our parent volunteers are back at it, helping to properly outfit our orchestras. Parents willing to enhance our many, many programs make the Northview experience what it is.
Our Sophomore Class Government advertised their ongoing shoe drive by going shoeless last Friday. Their marketing technique worked, as students and teachers alike were asking why some hooligans were walking about with no shoes. If you have gently worn shoes to donate, please bring them to the main lobby at Northview, where our sophomores have placed a donation box.
Senior Visionaries were delivered over the past couple weeks, giving members of our Leadership Academy a chance to both practice public speaking and articulate what they want to see happen in the future, be it with their senior year, or beyond. Hearing what these Seniors have planned leads me to believe we are in for a good year at Northview.
Mr. Blakeman’s AP United States History students are taking on one of the more challenging pieces of the AP test: the document based question (DBQ). He is working with them early in the year to ensure they are ready to nail this piece of the test in May. This DBQ centered on the War of 1812.
Also seen in Mr. Blakeman’s classroom this week were visuals, including memes illustrated to emphasize major issues from early American life.
