Northview Elementary News
We find great parallels between parental involvement in their child’s education and the child’s academic success. For this reason, we strongly encourage parents to take an active role at Northview Elementary. Here we have made available the most up-to-date news, information, and helpful resources regarding your child’s education.
Via Credit Union and Mississinewa Community Schools operate a cooperative educational program—a student operated branch. The mission of the cooperative is to help students learn about money, and to establish money and management skills. The student branch is open every Thursday morning prior to school and accepts deposits only.
As an incentive to save at their school, each time a student makes a deposit their name enters into a weekly and monthly drawing. During October, students who make a deposit can spin the prize wheel for school supplies! If you would like for your child to start saving at the Northview Student Branch, please complete a permission slip and return it along with their initial deposit.
The PTO is sponsoring a book fair the week of October 8 through October 12. The book fair will be open during family and friends lunches. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the office at (765) 677.4400.
On Thursday, October 18 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m., come join our Argh! Surrender the Reading Treasure literacy fair. There will be reading and art activities, a photo booth, snacks, and door prizes (for students and parents). There will also be reading resources available for parents to use with their children at home.
Please do not allow your student to arrive at school prior to 8:00 a.m. School starts at 8:30 a.m. Car riders dismiss at 3:05 p.m., and walkers and bus riders dismiss at 3:10 p.m. If you are picking your child up, please wait in a single file line until your child is in your car and then pull out of line. Thank you!
