Northgate Hosts Chinese Foreign Exchange Student, Jessie Liu
Hello! My name is Jessie Liu, I am a foreign exchange student here at Northgate from China. On Sunday, May 17th, twenty-three foreign exchange students came from thirteen different countries and gathered in Ohio for the Annual International Dinner. This is one of the most celebrated events of the year which is organized by the foreign exchange group, AYA. Students each shared a dish representing their culture and host families prepared cuisine as well. Every student invited their favorite teacher from their respective schools to be their special guest. My choice dish was egg rolls (also known as spring rolls) to represent my country, China. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to taste different foods from various cultures, and the differences of foods and languages perfectly represented the true meaning of this event...........Read More
Avalon First Grade: Life of a Butterfly
First grade students at Avalon Elementary have been learning about the life cycle of butterflies. They made observations of caterpillars, watched them turn into chrysalises, and finally emerge into beautiful butterflies. Students learned how to take care of them at each stage of their development before releasing them behind the school. A few lucky students were fortunate enough to have a butterfly land in their hands!
NED Show: Character Education Assembly
The NED Show a Character Education Assembly came to Bellevue Elementary on March 3 and Avalon Elementary on April 23. The program centers around three important messages: Never give up. Encourage others. Do your best. During the assembly the students learned all about NED’s three messages while also enjoying storytelling, magic, humor and yo-yo tricks. The students enthusiastically participated in the program that was presented. They were thrilled to see the many yo-yo tricks that were performed such as, “Walk the Dog” and “Spinner”. The NED show visits 2.5 million students every year across the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. The NED show receives no outside funding so the sale of NED messaged yo-yo’s five days after the show makes it a “Pay It Forward” program that helps send the assembly on to the next school. The Ned show hopes to make a long lasting impact on the students that encourages them to put the message in motion. Students and parents can visit: to learn more about the program.
