BUS CANCELLATION - ROUTE D

As part of the Proactive Planned Route Cancellations, Route D is cancelled for the entire week from Monday, December 13th thru Friday, December 17th.


The ALPS Shuttle Bus will continue to run each day.


When we have bus cancellations it adds to the number of cars that we have at arrival and dismissal time, so things take a little longer than usual. Additionally, as you know, we have a limited number of parking spaces available for cars to park. Therefore, we strongly encourage everyone to use the carpool lane instead of parking your car and walking up to meet your student. There are many adults helping with the carpool lane, so we make sure that students are safe and get into the correct cars.


Thank you for your grace and understanding as the transportation department does their best to provide reliable and predictable transportation during this period of severe driver shortages.

Habit 2 Activity

Family Mission Statement

Habit #2 Begin with the End in Mind- "I have a plan"


What this means: Have a mission, a clear sense of where you want to go. Think about the end first- how are you going to get there?


“I plan ahead and set goals.”

“I do things that have meaning and make a difference”

“I am important part of my classroom.”

“I look for ways to be a good citizen.”


How can I do this in my life?

1. Write down your goals. It is said that "A goal not written is only a wish.”

2. Lay out your clothes for tomorrow the night before.

3. Write down 3 goals you want to accomplish.


Great Books for Habit #2 - Begin With the End in Mind

  • When I Grow Up by Sean Covey
  • Click Clack Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin
  • Little Bunny on the Move by Peter McCarty

Northville C.A.R.E.S Coming Attractions!!!


On December 16th at 7:00 Northville C.A.R.E.S will be showing a pre-taped student panel that some of our high school students participated in.

Our students shared their thoughts on the pressures they face as they navigate through high school. Please contact Susan Johnson at johnsosu@northvilleschools.org or 248-344-3532 if you are interested in attending this virtual event.


As part of Northville C.A.R.E.S, we are happy to provide 2 opportunities for our families to view the movie Chasing Childhood. Chasing Childhood explores the pressures for families and children in a high achievement culture.

  • Thursday, January 20th 6:30-8:15
  • Saturday, January 29th at 10:00-11:45


There will be a short Q & A after the movie facilitated by Amy Prevo (Director-NYN), Kerri Ann Sondreal (Social Work-NYN) and Dianna Shamus (Social/Emotional Learning Counselor-NHS). Please feel free to view the Chasing Childhood trailer
