National School Breakfast Week

The week of March 8, 2021 was National School Breakfast Week (NSBW). This annual celebration raises awareness and highlights the significant impact school breakfast has on a student's ability to succeed. The NSBW campaign theme, “Score Big with School Breakfast,” reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy and energizing start to the day for students.

The Lockport City School District offers breakfast to all students at no charge through the Community Eligibility Provision program. The breakfast program is provided through Aramark Food Services and features hot breakfast sandwiches, cereal, fresh fruit, milk, and juice.

March is Women's History Month

March 8th was International Women's Day (IWD), a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The 2021 theme is "Choose to Challenge". The Special Education Department is raising their hands high to commit to choose to challenge and call out inequality. "Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced." -James Baldwin

March is Music in our Schools Month

North Park Junior High School (NPJHS) students celebrated “Music in Our Schools Month” (MIOSM). Our performance ensembles continue to prepare for spring virtual performances, including the district-wide MIOSM concert. The Drama Club began musical preparations for "High School Musical JR". NPJHS began each day in March with a school-wide announcement about an interesting piece of music history. In general music classes, students learned about the elements of music and how they work together to create the music we love.
