Wildcat Weekly 9/17/2023
September 17, 2023
Mileage Club is an extra activity that will be available to students outside during lunch recess times!
Club will begin on Monday, September 18 and will continue until the snow falls this winter (roughly around Thanksgiving) on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during lunch recess times. This is an activity that aligns with the district belonging, access, and equity efforts that provide opportunities to all students!
To make this club possible to all 1st through 4th grade students, I am in need of parent volunteers. As a mileage club volunteer, you would be responsible for helping students find their cards, punch cards as students complete laps, hand out toe token prizes, and create new cards for students. I can take up to 5 volunteers per session per day (potential total of 10 per day). If you are interested in being a volunteer, you will need to do the following:
1. Complete the online Northview Volunteer Form found here:
2. Send an email to email@example.com to let me know you are interested in being a mileage club volunteer and have completed the online volunteer form.
3. Sign up for your available dates and times using the Sign Up Genuis found here:
This club isn't possible without your support! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to me using my email listed above under step 2.
Thank you so much! GO WILDCATS!
Late Arrival & Early Pick Up
Any students arriving to school after 8:25am/ 9:25am (Wednesday) need to be dropped off in the front of the building and sign in at the office to get a late slip. If drop off extends past 8:25am students will not be marked tardy.
If your student's end of the day process is going to change please call the office by 3pm.
If your student is not going to be at school, please call the office 616.361.3450 to let us know.
If you need to pick up your student early they will need to be signed out in the office. You can email or call ahead and we will try to have them to be ready for you when you arrive. A student will only be released to a parent/guardian unless you have called ahead and given permission for someone else to pick up your student.
Hand 2 Hand
North Oakview is partnering with Frontline Church to offer weekend meals to families who are experiencing financial burdens. Every Friday we deliver black bags filled with at least 10 food items that consist of breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bags are brought to the student to be put into their backpack privately and discretely. Fill out the attached form and return it to North Oakview either in person or by email.
Open Parent Teacher Committee Meeting
This Tuesday, September 29th, 6pm @ North Oakview Library
All are welcome to attend our first PTC meeting of the year.
We will meet in the Library. Please join us to hear about update about our school.
You can also follow "North Oakview Elementary School PTC" on Facebook for updates on activities throughout the year.
Lunchroom Help Sign Up
If you would like to help out in your child's school, here is a sign up where you can get a chance help out in the lunchroom. Also, please fill out a Volunteer form. Please see the button below.
Food Service Update
For the 2023-2024 school year, Northview is excited to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students. This will save families valuable time and money!
Even though meals will be provided for free, it's important for families to complete the free and reduced price meal application at https://northview.familyportal.cloud/.
Families who qualify under this program are eligible to receive additional benefits, such as discounts on home internet, discounts on high school Advanced Placement (AP) test fees, etc.
Completing the application helps Northview, too! For example, the district may receive additional funds to enhance educational opportunities as many state and federal grants are based on the number of students eligible for free and reduced price meals.
We appreciate you taking the time to complete the online application today!
Northview Resident Transportation
Transportation information will be released in Ride360 on August 23. You can only obtain this information in the app so please download it today. https://nvps.net/transportation/
Bus tags will be handed out at the open house. If your student tag is lost/damaged it is a $5/fee.
Black Out 2023 -- Northview Tradition
Make plans to join us for the 14th annual Black Out event! You have the chance to be a part of an event that will impact many lives, particularly children who are on a journey to overcome pediatric cancer. This event not only raises money for families battling this disease, but it also brings us together as a community to do our part to help others.
On Friday, September 22, Wildcat Stadium will be packed with supporters wearing special Black Out t-shirts at the varsity football game. Event t-shirts are available at the Northview Administration Building, during open houses this week, and at home varsity football games for a $10 donation for short-sleeved, $20 for long-sleeved.
Interested in sponsoring a football jersey for the game, please pick up a form at the Administration Building, Northview High School or email Northviewblackout@gmail.com.
Thank you to our friends from Independent Bank and Straight Line Fence who made a very generous donation to help with the cost of the t-shirts. We thank them for their passion and for sharing this cause with Northview! Don't miss this event and the opportunity to make a difference in a child's life!
Medication Forms are required for dispensing any medications, both over the counter and prescribed. The form can be found online using the link above or in the office. All prescription medications require a physician signature. Parents must personally bring in medications and they may not be sent in with students.
WE ARE NORTHVIEW!
As many of you know we like to make each and every child feel special. I, Mrs. Miranda, love putting them in our Wildcat Weekly whether it is for sports or vacations or fun times in school. I love seeing what they have been up too. So this is where you come in, I need your help making this happen. Each month I will ask for different pictures of your kids. If you would like to share some of those with me, I would greatly appreciate it and they will be featured in the Wildcat Weekly. Here is to a great year of memories!! Go Cats!!
