Field Day is June 7th
Here are some hints to help make it a success…… 1. Put sunscreen on students in the morning before school. 2. Send students with a water bottle labeled with their name to take outside with them. 3. There is a water station and students might get wet! Dry fit clothing or clothing that dries fast would be the best choice. 4. There will be running activities, so please have students wear tennis shoes. Thank you! Mr. Dicken and Mrs. Salah

What is Academic Games?
Academic Games stimulates students to learn Math, English, and Social studies through fun games and competition. Academic Games is a collection of games designed to challenge students to use higher order thinking skills in the subjects of Language Arts, English, History, Mathematics, and Logic. Through competition students are encouraged and motivated to sharpen their skills in order to gain a competitive edge over their peers. Players receive recognition and awards in the same way that sports champions are honored.
Our Mission and Core Values
The mission of Northville Academic Games is to provide a nurturing and focused environment for students to develop their intellectual capabilities as well as maturing into responsible individuals through fun games and friendly competitions. We cultivate a positive attitude and fairness in players who can win with class and lose with grace.
Our core values are Passion, Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork and Fun.

New volunteers will have access to the previous year’s documents via DropBox. Previous volunteers and your EBoard are also here to help - you will not do this alone!
