Wildcat Weekly, 9.12.18

Standard

Northview’s Global Education program aims to give students opportunities to experience the world beyond their textbooks and Chromebooks.  Many teachers have organized overseas trips to advance student cultural, historical, and language learning.  This summer, our growing Mandarin Chinese program branched out of the classroom and traveled to China.  As you can see, it looks like they had a blast!

 

The Girls Soccer Team had a solid week, defeating Springfield 3-0, and tying perennial power Notre Dame Academy (highlights here ) in a hard fought battle on Saturday.

Two weeks ago, weather could not put a damper on the LadyKats Soccer Team, as girls from several of the teams at the tournament in Indiana came together for an impromptu karaoke concert.

 

Our department chairs are hard at work, pouring over data from 2017-18, looking for opportunities for improvement in 2018-19.

If you wondered why your child was digging up soil from your yard this week, it could have been part of their experimentation in Ms. Bogue’s AP Environmental Science class.  Students tested their soil for various elements, which will help them evaluate its health.

Speaking of Project Unify, Northview Intervention Specialist Jessica Minard was selected as one of the 2018 Voya Unsung Heroes for her work to bring this inclusive program to our community!  Way to go Ms. Minard!

 

Our Boys Soccer Team tied Medina 1-1 over the weekend.

They followed that up with a victory over Southview on the road last night, by a score of 4-1.  Check out the video highlights below.

The Cats are home this week, and are preparing to take on Maumee.  Check out the BCSN preview of the game below.

 

Before Friday night’s game, Northview Student Council will be hosting their annual Color Cloud event.  As a parent, here’s what you need to know:

  1. It is messy.  Be ready to do laundry.
  2. If you sit near the student section during the game, you will be blanketed by the occasional puff that rises from the student section when they jump around with each score.
  3. We’re sorry.  They’re only young once?
  4. For highlight footage from last year’s Color Cloud, click here.

 

Our final update is from the Northern Lakes League Sportsmanship Workshop.  Students from all eight NLL schools came together last week to define their expectations for sportsmanship from each other, their coaches, and family and friends in the stands.  This is the second annual workshop focusing on making the climate and culture in our gyms and in our stands better reflect our shared values.  Last year’s attendees at this workshop returned home to help inspire a message of appreciation for referees that was read over the speakers before the start of volleyball and basketball games.  This group of young leaders is working on their own ideas to continue to improve our culture.
