When an Upstander sees or hears about someone being bullied they stand up and speak out. This theme was promoted throughout the past school year at the elementary schools. Miss Christoferetti ,the elementary art teacher and Miss Trimber , the elementary guidance counselor selected the top three winners at each school. The contest was to design a poster of “What an Upstander looks like”. he students who won did an outstanding job designing their posters.

High School Students Teach Junior Achievement at Avalon
Avalon Elementary was excited to host our “guest teachers” from the high school for our Annual Junior Achievement Day. We would like to thank the following high school students: Isaac Eames, Courtney Gillingham, Kayla Williams, Paul Boyce, Elizabeth Miller for giving their time and expertise to teach our students business simulations that reach beyond the classroom door. To teach these lessons the students had to be trained by Junior Achievement and then write lesson plans for the activities. They did an OUTSANDING job and we would like to commend them for giving back to the younger students. It was a day the students at Avalon will be talking about and remember for years to come.
Avalon and Bellevue Elementary Students Perfect Attendance 2014-2015
Some students at Avalon and Bellevue Elementary Schools made every day count in the 2014-2015 school year, and did not miss a day of school! They had perfect attendance! Attendance matters for doing well in school and in life starting in kindergarten and even in pre-school. School is your first and most important job. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to graduate and find good jobs. At Avalon Elementary there were twenty-three students who had perfect attendance and at Bellevue Elementary there were eleven students. The students received a medal, a perfect attendance t-shirt, a drawstring book bag and a ten dollar gift certificate to Target at the Awards Assembly at the end of May. They also participated in a pizza party at their respective schools. A poster will hang in the lobby with their names on it at the start of the coming school year. The pizza party, Target gift certificate and poster are made possible by the generous donations of District Justice Tara Smith and Mrs. Janice Miller owner of Miller Funeral Home. Congratulations to these students!.............Read More

Sixth Graders Welcomed to Middle/High School for 2nd Annual Move Up Day!
With the senior class graduated, the Middle/High School hosted its second "Move Up Day". As part of our district transition plan, classes from sixth to eleventh grade moved up to practice their schedules for next school year. The rising class of 2021 spent their day as seventh graders and got to meet their teachers while becoming acquainted with their classes for next year. This program has been successful and is viewed as a great orientation to how the Middle/High School operates. We congratulate the class of 2015 and wish the best for the class of 2021 as they move to the Middle School.

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
