Jason Dilliott Memorial
In August of 2014 the Northgate School District suffered the loss of our Band Director Mr. Jason Dilliott. Mr.D, as he was called by most, had a love of music and a love of life. He spent endless hours investing in our community. He is remembered for his contagious laugh and willingness to make time for his students. He truly touched the lives of everyone he met.

His band family, both past and present, have been working hard to thank him for his dedication to the band and bringing out the music in all of us. A gazebo will be built at the Northgate High School in his memory. There are several ways to support this project which we are hoping to dedicate this spring. Please do what you can to help and most importantly spread the word to others that knew Mr. D and will want to help honor him.

ALCOSAN presentation-Middle School Science
On Monday, September 26, 2016 students in Mrs. Francis' middle school science classes welcomed Ms. Tara Prince from ALCOSAN to participate in the international Green Apple Day of Service. The 7th and 8th graders explored urban and rural watersheds through demonstrations of the water cycle simulating storm water run off and its impact on various types of outdoor spaces. The students learned about green technology, the earth's natural system for recycling water and managing storm water runoff. The Northgate School District greatly appreciates Ms. Prince and ALCOSAN providing this experience for our students.
Mrs. Farmer's 6th Grade Avalon Students Incorporate STEAM
Students in Mrs. Farmer’s 6th grade Science classes participated in the STEM initiative using the component of engineering in designing, creating, and building toothpick bridges using materials easily accessible. Building Toothpick Bridges introduced students to the skills utilized by engineers through the process of problem-solving, researching, designing and building bridges. As a result of this project, students learned what STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is, what it involves, how STEM relates to our everyday lives, what engineers do, what necessary skills are involved within STEM, such as, how to problem-solve, how to research and re-evaluate their designs, how to improve on what they built, and how "bridges" relate to "real-life".........Read More
Science Team Building at Bellevue Elementary 
During the year, the 5th grade students frequently work in cooperative groups. This helps prepare them for future careers where they will be expected to work cooperatively with co-workers as they tackle problems and develop new ideas. The skills needed to do this successfully have to be directly taught and practiced. During the first week of school, Mrs. Hunt’s class did team building activities to practice working together, listening to each other, and agreeing on strategies for solving problems. The students had a BLAST solving a cup challenge! They worked in groups of four, each holding onto a piece of string attached to a rubber band. They worked together to manipulate the rubber band to grasp and move cups and place them in a pyramid. Each group finished successfully and proved that teamwork is extremely important to achieve a common goal!.......Read More
Going the Extra Mile!
On Friday, September 19th, on behalf of Bellevue Chiropractic Centre, associate Dr. Bill Walsh, presented to Superintendent of Schools – Mrs. Caroline Johns, an abundance of back-to-school supplies for students in the Northgate School District. Among the numerous donations, were backpacks, notebooks, pens and pencils to prepare students as they begin a new school year.

Throughout the month of August, Dr. Walsh and the Bellevue Chiropractic Centre held a “Fill-the-Bus” event drive requesting donations. New and established patients were sought for assistance, and accepted throughout the remaining weeks of summer.

Northgate School District extends a heartfelt thank you and commends Dr. Walsh and the Bellevue Chiropractic Centre for their efforts in getting Northgate students off to a great start!

Best wishes for a successful year!
STEAM at Bellevue and Avalon Elementary Schools 
Northgate recently had the opportunity to send two elementary teachers, Mrs. Gretchen Monahan and Mrs. Jennifer Tusick, to receive training at The Center for Creativity housed at the Allegheny Intermediate Unit. The Center offers teachers of Allegheny county access to the one-of-a-kind STEAM Lending Library.
