We have been enjoying January at Northpoint. Our students are visiting Wargo Nature Center this week for a winter outdoor learning adventure. Learning topics are related to our social studies and science academic targets, and are as follows:
- Kindergarten: Winter Adaptations
- 1st Grade: Birds
- 2nd Grade: Native American History
- 3rd Grade: Tracking
- 4th Grade: Orienteering
We had a visit from Westwood choir students last week, they performed for us selections from their winter concert. We really enjoyed this awesome concert, thanks to them for putting Northpoint on their tour! A few of our Northpoint friends are continuing to visit our neighbors to the north at Edgewood Senior Living. These experiences are so valuable for students and residents alike. Most recently some of our kindergartners made snowflakes with their “grand friends."
Ms. Alto and Mrs. Comstock’s second grade students read about animals and humans sharing common space. They then worked to design a product that would allow wild animals and humans to share spaces peacefully. Our students enjoyed sharing their creations during a Designers Showcase! These are just a few of the wonderful experiences our Northpoint students are engaged in, check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for more highlights!
