Ms. Janecko’s freshmen scientists are learning about DNA, and demonstrated their understanding by creating “stop motion” videos. You can see an example below.
Mr. Keller’s Anatomy students are using high powered microscopes to get a closer look at their hair follicles.
Mrs. Stewart’s freshmen learned about the insulative properties of various materials, and then faced the challenge of constructing a container that would compete with containers created by other groups in the class. Here you can see them using a thermal imaging device that, when connected to their iPhones, allowed them to see where heat was escaping from their container. Finally, they poured hot water into their creations, and measured which one could retain the most heat.
Second, Northview Alumna Heidi Burkhart, who has developed a real estate company in New York City that has done over $2 billion in transactions, told our kids to not take no for an answer. As a 20 year old The University of Toledo graduate, she took off for the big apple, and basically worked for free for two year, living off of bread and Ramen noodles, eating sugar packets to mask her hunger. This sacrifice gave her two years to learn from the very best in her industry, and she is now using that knowledge effectively. She encouraged our students to start now. They can afford to work for free, given that they have little to tie them down in this world. Go work for free for the best and brightest, learn from them, and one day they will be ready to forge their own paths. Our students are so very fortunate to be growing up in a community where they have access to people like Zak, Alain, and Heidi. Thank you to all three of you for coming to share your journeys with our kids!
The Marching Band played their season-ending concert last week, and we happened to capture a bit of their rehearsal for it…
Rivalry week went the way of the Cougars on the field, but we honor our boys for the way they played the game, and the fun they brought us this season. The student body had a lot of fun all week, including a big pep rally, Powder Puff Football, and a large bonfire. Check out the videos that Student Council produced last week to get everyone in the right frame of mind.
- THIS JUST IN Willie the Wildcat and Carlos the Cougar press conference is starting right now...
- Willie has been training for months for his big fight… Now it’s time to put Southview to bed
- It’s all been leading up to this . . GAME DAY
The Powder Puff game ended in a tie. So, this is how they decided a winner: the 40 yard dash…
Congratulations to Mr. Creech on being inducted into the Sylvania Schools Athletic Foundation Hall of Fame! He was recognized, along with several other alumni at halftime of the game.
It was a great fall under the Friday night lights. Thank you to our football team, band, cheerleaders, and Student Council for making Cats Stadium a wonderful place to call home!
Speaking of calling Northview home, our 8th Grade Open House will take place tomorrow night. If you know a young man or woman who is looking for academic rigor, and experiences beyond the books that are hard to match, encourage them to come join us at 7:00 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center. Go Cats!
