- Principal's Points
Although we missed a day of learning last week, we still had a lot going on at Northpoint! Our kindergartners continued to deepen their friendships with our neighbors at Edgewood, taking time to read to their senior friends. Students in the brown pod implemented a new learning plan in which they completed a task list, reflected on their work and celebrated with a related learning activity of their choice. It is fun to see our students take ownership and pride in their work!
Third Grade students had a visitor from Connexus Energy, who spoke with them about electricity and electrical safety. The students learned how electricity works, ways people can get hurt from electricity and how they can prevent these kinds of accidents from happening. The presentation also included a giant model and several props to enhance student learning. Over the last two weeks, a group of enthusiastic second graders navigated the SLP 3D design model. Along their path of discovery, they gained an understanding of bee intelligence, human-bee communication and the bee’s unique ability to help humans.
Thanks to everyone who attended and helped at our school carnival this past Friday. This is always a highlight of the school year- thank you to our PTO for sponsoring this wonderful event!
