WHAT'S HAPPENING AT NORTH.....
January Lunch Menu
A Thanksgiving Thank you!
The Student Life Office would like to thank all those who contributed food and monetary donations to the SCN 2021 Thanksgiving Turkey Drive. With the help of SCN students, staff, and community members, we were able to put together and deliver Thanksgiving Day feasts for our families in need. Thank you, everyone!
Need Help Understanding The North Registration Process?
This session will explain the North student registration process and all the options available to students. Time will be available at the end for questions. This is a great University for ALL North parents/guardians since the process and available options do change; it is especially informative for new North parents/guardians.
The North PTO is hosting the meeting, but the entire session will be run by John Peters, Assistant Principal of College and Career Readiness.
Tuesday, December 7, at 6:30-7:30 pm in the North LRC (masks are required).
THE CONSTELLATION CONCERT IS BACK on Friday December 10th and presented to you by all of our amazing SCN Music students!
We have Vocal, Orchestra and Band all working together to bring you fabulous music and Holiday Season Cheer and we would love to have you attend. This year we are following social distancing guidelines and protocol so the two different times are not the same concert as in year’s past. Please check the links below to see which musical groups are performing at each time and you can purchase a limit of two tickets for the performance of your choice. This same process was in place for the Veteran’s Day Concert last month and it worked very well so you don’t want to delay. Once we are at capacity we will have to close ticketing so click today and start your season with lots of music and joy from talent you just won’t believe until you hear it yourself!

North Stars At The Next Level
FROM THE SCN LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER:
The Global 16 Days Campaign, launched in 1991, has been used as a worldwide call for the elimination of gender-based violence (GBV). In 2018, a multi-year theme focusing on ending GBV and harassment in the world of work was announced by CWGL (Center for Women’s Global Leadership) to coincide with the adoption of a historic new ILO Convention with the same focus. Learn more about how to support this activism at Global 16 Days Campaign The Global 16 Days Campaign is an organizing strategy to call for the elimination of all forms of gender-based violence against women and to:
Raise awareness about gender-based violence against women as a human rights issue at the local, national, regional and international levels,
Strengthen local work around gender-based violence against women,
Establish a clear link between local and international work to end gender-based violence against women,
Provide a forum in which organizers can develop and share new and effective strategies,
Demonstrate the solidarity of women around the world organizing against gender-based violence against women; and
Create tools to pressure governments to implement commitments to eliminate gender-based violence against women.
In addition to the Global 16 Days information, we would like to recommend some very informative books about oppression and violence against women in the world and how we can help to prevent it. Click on the links below to place a book on hold or read a GoodReads book review.
Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
“Drawing on the breadth of their combined reporting experience, Kristof and WuDunn depict our world with anger, sadness, clarity, and, ultimately, hope.They show how a little help can transform the lives of women and girls abroad. That Cambodian girl eventually escaped from her brothel and, with assistance from an aid group, built a thriving retail business that supports her family. The Ethiopian woman had her injuries repaired and in time became a surgeon. A Zimbabwean mother of five, counseled to return to school, earned her doctorate and became an expert on AIDS.” GoodReads
The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State by Nadia Murad
“On August 15th, 2014, when Nadia was just twenty-one years old, this life ended. Islamic State militants massacred the people of her village, executing men who refused to convert to Islam and women too old to become sex slaves. Six of Nadia's brothers were killed, and her mother soon after, their bodies swept into mass graves. Nadia was taken to Mosul and forced, along with thousands of other Yazidi girls, into the ISIS slave trade. Nadia would be held captive by several militants and repeatedly raped and beaten. Finally, she managed a narrow escape through the streets of Mosul, finding shelter in the home of a Sunni Muslim family whose eldest son risked his life to smuggle her to safety.” GoodReads
