News From Nighthawk Nation

Elevating Excellence in Academics, Character & Community

Week of March 1, 2021

K-3 Campus

Can you believe that we are at the end of February and today we celebrated the 100th Day of School. What a fun day. I am blown away by how much your children have grown this year. Your support at home and the dedication of our incredible teachers is the perfect combination to see excellent growth. Growth is not only seen with academics, is seen in attitude, grit, kindness, and behavior. What a great community to be part of.

Happy Friday Nighthawks,


This week was jam packed with fun activities for our students! Mrs. Burnett's classroom earned Muffin Monday by having 95% or more of her students arrive on time for 3 weeks. The last week was full of 100% participation!! Way to go 4th grade! Our 5th grade students took the lead on a research project for Black History Month around influential figures who have, and are, shaping our history and nation. Great learning and there was a collaborative portion where they scaled pictures as a group in honor of these individuals. 6th grade is all about the oceans right now as they dive deep into their Ocean Animal Reserach Projects. 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes were graced with a visit from a resident Valociraptor as they jumped into the Quadratic Park: A Parabolic Adventure activity. It has been a week full of smiles and memories at the 4-8 Campus.


Drills:

Parents, we are starting our drill schedule up now that we are back to full time in person learning. This week we did a HOLD drill, where we clear the hallways and secure rooms. This drill is intended for situations where we might have medical staff or situations that we do not want students to be a part of (seizures, loss oc conciousness, etc.). Our drill lasted 7 minutes and was successful.


Part of successful training for unanticipated events (weather, threat, or medical) is an important part of student safety. We have been lucky to have Officer Salazar working with classrooms to help them prepare for the drills that they will encounter while at school. At NVCS we use the Standard Response Protocol (SRP). To learn more about this please visit:

https://iloveuguys.org/programs/standard-response-protocol-for-k-12/

This is a great resource for parents and offers parent/family resources to help guide conversations that can sometimes be difficult to navigate.


Parent Teacher Conferences:

Parent teacher conferences are right around the corner. Spring conferences will be held virtually (via Google Meets) on March 10th and 11th. A conference sign up email was sent to all parents Monday, February 22 at 10 am. Middle School Parents, please sign up for slots with your student's teachers and not just their homeroom teachers.

We Want Your Referral

New Vision Charter School is enrolling for the 2021-2022 school year and we want your referral! By simply telling your family and friends all the great things that are happening at New Vision and telling them to enroll you could get your 2021-2022 Student Fees waived. If they enroll and start New Vision in the fall, we will waive your student fees (not including athletic fees). It is a win-win.

Virtual Book Fair

We are so excited for our Virtual Book Fair! This is an awesome way to get books into your kids' hands and support the school at the same time. Check out the below links and watch social media over the next week. You can place your order online on February 14. Help us reach our goal of 313 books.
