Silver Springs Cardboard Challenge

Get ready for the Silver Springs Cardboard Challenge! Student Leaders Hadley and Lily proposed an idea about doing a Cardboard Challenge. Hadley did something like this at another school she attended and thought it would be a cool idea to try it at Silver Springs. We also think it would be a great way for students to check out the new Maker Space.

Please see the flyer below for more information! Throughout the month of October, we will be collecting cardboard and donations of packaging tape and duct tape. In the hallway, outside grade level classrooms there will be a large box that will collect all the cardboard and tape donations that students bring in.

Then, the week of November 8th, classrooms will pick a time to go to the Makerspace to create things with the cardboard.

Great cardboard donations include:

Toilet paper rolls

Paper towel rolls

Cereal boxes

Amazon Boxes

NEW - Northville Public Schools Close Contact Quarantine Protocol

NPS has aligned our Close Contact Protocol with the guidance provided by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) shown here in the School Quarantine Guidance graphic and supported by our local Health Department. This guidance provides multiple pathways for students to remain in school. For a more detailed explanation of this graphic, please see this NPS Close Contact Quarantine Protocol Explained document.

If your child is an identified Close Contact to a positive COVID case, we will contact you and further explain your options of, where possible, keeping your child safely in school.

COVID Safety and Mitigation Plans

As we come together in learning this year, it is important to remember to perform at-home self-monitoring using the COVID-19 Daily Student Symptom Screening Tool. This screener serves as a daily reminder that children who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 (or ANY illness) need to stay home from school. This is an important measure that will help prevent or reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in using this screener each school day. In addition to the daily screener students and staff are required to wear masks while indoors.

The NPS 2021-22 COVID-19 General Mitigation Response Plan outlines the multiple layers of COVID-19 safety measures being implemented across the district to support the health and safety of all students and staff. School principals will share specific building procedures with families. Processes are in place at each school to teach and/or reinforce safety measures with all students. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document answers additional questions you may have as you and your child are preparing for the start of the 2021-22 school year.


School Lunch Program

The Northville Public Schools provides a hot lunch program for interested students.

Families must preorder lunches for preschools and elementary students. Orders must be in by 8am for preschools students and 8:30 am for elementary students to receive a lunch that day. The system will not allow you to order after the time listed above. For your convenience, meals can be preordered up to 30 days in advance. To avoid any issues, we recommend ordering the night before.


TechGirlz Python Workshop

Hello all!

This is Sahithy Prattipati. I am a sophomore from Northville High School and would like to introduce you all to the TechGirlz Python Programming Workshop this September 30, 6:30-8:30. TechGirlz is an incredible nonprofit organization that promotes girls to start learning more about the field of tech through these free workshops and camps. Regardless of if students are interested in pursuing technology in the future, interested in a different field, or still exploring different career paths, tech is a growing space on which we all should form at least a basic understanding. The free Python workshop welcomes all girls grades 5-8 to join in and learn the basics of the popular programming language!

Looking forward to introducing students to the Python language! Those interested, see the attached flyer or click on the link below to sign up:
