Greetings Northgate! It has been a busy and successful start to the 2014-15 school year. The staff is engaging in the co-teaching model. The District’s Pre-K Counts program is in its second year and doing well.

Avalon First Graders Spread Holiday Cheer
On Friday, December 12, 2014, the Avalon first grade made 81 red and white candy cane pins for the seniors at New Hope Assisted Living. The children were so enthused with project, so it is certain that the pins will be received with much holiday spirit. Our children have truly learned that it is more important to give than to receive.

Red Ribbon Week
From October 27th to October 31st Northgate celebrated SADD's Red Ribbon Week.

This is a national anti-drug campaign that started in 1988. Three years earlier, a man named Enrique "Kiki" Camarena was murdered at 37 because he uncovered a multibillion drug scandal intertwined in Mexico's government. In honor of him, the United States of America Congress started Red Ribbon Week.

This year, Northgate's SADD is taking a different approach in doing their part to help through an anti-drug spirit week. Monday's theme was "Team Up Against Drugs", everyone was encouraged to wear their favorite team jersey. Tuesday was "Life iIs A Work of Art".......Read More
