 November is Epilepsy Awareness Month


On behalf of the Northgate School District Board of School Directors, administration, staff, and myself, I would like to welcome you to the 2015 – 2016 school year. The start of school offers us another opportunity to begin a school year filled with anticipation, hope and enthusiasm, and I look forward to working closely with you as we advance the Northgate School District. As students, parents, business owners, community leaders, or residents, you play an important part in the success of our District. I encourage your partnership and support as we prepare every Northgate student for a successful future...........Read More



New to You
While studying Land and Water in our Science Modules the fourth grade classes created some “Tremendous Trash”. This project was a Fourth Grade Challenge to help reduce waste. The students gathered empty containers such as egg cartons, milk jugs, cans, bottles, food containers, and other materials to reuse. Fourth Grade did an incredible job designing and decorating items to use in a new way. They also wrote a paragraph that described their products in order to convince others to reuse materials in a similar way. Please consider this project our way of reminding us all to
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
French Club
The French Club is enjoying a busy fall: we recently made "macaron magnets" to look like the famous French macaron cookie. We also volunteered helping with children's games at Bayne Library after the Halloween Parade on October 31. Several members were wearing their new French Club t-shirts! French Club meets every other Wednesday at 3 pm in room 214--everyone is welcome, even if they are not currently taking French.

Also, Mme Cromer will be traveling to France and England in the spring with 7 students and 2 parents.
1st Grade- Big Bad Hair Dryer
After reading stories about the Big Bad Wolf, Mrs. Gusew’s first grade class at Bellevue decided to try to create a house that the “Big Bad Hair Dryer” could not blow down. Students were given a choice of materials with which to build. Working with a partner, students attempted to build a house that could be transported to the “blowing station”. Out of the 8 groups, 2 were unable to complete their houses due to technical issues, 4 “beat” the hair dryer and remained standing and only 2 fell down.......Read More

National Walk to School Day
For the third consecutive year, Avalon and Bellevue Elementary Schools teamed up to participate in the National Walk to School Day to promote pedestrian safety in our community. This year we partnered with Safe Kids, Representative Adam Ravenstal’s office, Dr. Jonathon Kohler, Sodexo, Dietz Floral, and the North Boroughs YMCA.

We started the morning at the YMCA with a healthy breakfast. Each school was led by the High School Band or Chorus and walked to school with their parents and teachers. Once we arrived at the school the band or chorus entertained everyone with great performances........Read More
Avalon Students Prepare for the Pittsburgh Maker Faire
The Avalon Elementary Design and Build Team has been meeting after school to create “Water Works” projects to exhibit at Maker Faire Pittsburgh. In addition to designing and building their own projects, which will be on display, these fifth and sixth grade students will be facilitating a hands-on exploration station for guests at the Faire.

Maker Faire Pittsburgh is an all-ages festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness – part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new! It’s a weekend of exploration, inspiration and fun with more than 200 workshops, performances, speakers and opportunities..........Read More
