Northville Connections Northville Public Schools Digital Newsletter: September 2021

Dear Northville Public Schools Families, Staff and Community,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

The new school year kicked off as students reunited with friends and teachers, new families were welcomed, and many students discovered their newly remodeled classrooms. Throughout the district, students of all ages participated in activities that helped them acclimate to returning to the classroom and assist them in getting to know their classmates.

We are grateful that you have chosen to entrust your child's education with Northville Public Schools. As always, do not hesitate to reach out to any staff member if you have concerns or questions regarding your child's transition into the classroom. We look forward to a wonderful year of learning and growth as we open a world of possibilities for and with every student.

Sincerely,

Mary K. Gallagher, Superintendent

NPS focuses on hope during Welcome Back Ceremony and professional development

Excitement and hope filled the buildings as staff gathered in their respective buildings with colleagues to welcome in the new school year during the Welcome Back Ceremony on the morning of August 31, 2021. The event started off with a performance of The National Anthem by NHS BackBeat and TrebleMakers followed by a message from Superintendent Mary Kay Gallagher and District leadership welcoming returning and new staff and celebrating those who have hit milestone years with the District. Steve Banchero, Director of Operations, gave a brief overview of the 2017 Bond projects that took place over the summer before each school was recognized for their exceptional work in Leader in Me programs, their student-focused initiatives, and national recognitions.

The morning’s keynote speaker was Dr. Kristin Anderson who spoke about welcoming students back to school with a focus on hope, how hope can drive goals and what actions to take to achieve those goals. Dr. Kristin Anderson also met with a student panel of all ages to receive their input on the success and areas of improvement they have experienced in the classroom.

District staff participated in professional development sessions on topics ranging from curriculum, new technology, and social-emotional learning, along with team-building exercises.

NPS hosts a summer of fun and learning

The 2021 Summer School program continued the Northville theme of Opening a World of Possibilities by offering a mixture of both online and in-class options. At the high school level, the online option was again a popular choice for both in-district and out-of-district students. Most importantly, through federal funding, NPS was able to offer over 237 course scholarships (approximately $81,000) to support student learning.

This year, Northville Schools also offered K-8 instruction and support in reading, math, and science, along with social and emotional learning (SEL) opportunities, at no cost to families. At the middle school, students had the opportunity to receive intense support and enrichment from subject area specialists. K-5 students were part of a dedicated classroom, with a teacher who provided small group math and reading support, along with science enrichment.

All K-8 students also participated in a program where our mental health staff implemented adventure challenge activities with classrooms to provide fun team-building activities that promote the social-emotional learning competency areas: self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, relationship skills, and social awareness. At the conclusion of each challenge, our mental health staff facilitated debriefing sessions with students.

To further support student’s social emotional learning, the programs also included fun educational activities, field trips, and community service programs, along with Kona Ice breaks that provided a chance to socialize and take a break from the heat. These activities were linked to state and/or national standards:

  • Kids Coalition Against Hunger
  • Maybury Farm
  • Total Sports Farmington
  • Yoyo Science with Zeemo
  • Nelson’s Wildlife Safari

Additionally, Northville Public Schools continued to support our students who qualify for full year programs or Extended School Year. Between our students at Cooke and our self contained classrooms for students with Autism, we provided programming for approximately 130 students.

In total, over 1200 students participated in summer learning opportunities at Northville Public Schools!

NPS Summer Camps

Many students enjoyed a fun and educational filled summer in Preschool and Kids’ Club Summer Camps. These camps incorporate arts and crafts, interactive activities and outdoor fun. Throughout the summer children were engaged in a wide variety of activities, project work and special visitors. Some of these activities included Cardio Drumming, Art with Ms. Elizabeth, water days and visits from Carousel Acres Petting Farm and the Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum.

Camp Invention

Camp Invention was held at Moraine Elementary School this summer during the week of July 13th. Each day campers rotated between workshops completing science and engineering projects and problem-solving. Some of these projects include creating slime, taking apart a microphone, and designing unique inventions using found objects. Campers also played games in the gym that reinforced physics concepts.

2017 Bond Project updates: summer construction

On Tuesday, November 7, 2017, the Northville Public Schools community overwhelmingly supported a $104.85 million bond proposal to upgrade Northville Public Schools’ aging facilities, enhance existing building security, and provide modern learning environments across the district – all while maintaining the current debt millage rate for taxpayers.

Thank you, voters!

This Summer: 2017 Bond Project by the Numbers

  • 12 Active Projects this past summer: Hillside, Cooke, Ridge Wood, Silver Springs, Winchester, NHS Gym Floor, NHS Tennis Courts, NHS Furniture, Cooke Furniture, NHS Roofing, Cooke Roofing, Miscellaneous Elementary Furniture

Hillside

At the start of this school year, students were welcomed to Hillside 2.0 through the new main entrance. Upon entering the main entrance, students could view the completed front offices and media center. The newly finished parking lot in front of the building improves traffic flow and a large awning spanning the width of the building provides shelter from the elements during arrival and dismissal.

Cooke

This summer, classrooms were transformed with flexible furniture to support a variety of instructional strategies and student learning needs along with new finishes, flooring and upgrades to mechanical systems which enhance the classroom environment. The front entrance was renovated to provide additional security and an awning was added stretching the length of the building providing shelter from the elements during arrival and dismissal.

Silver Springs & Winchester

Silver Springs and Winchester received renovations to classrooms and the media center including redesigned spaces for collaborative learning and updated technology. A designated Makerspace was incorporated into the buildings. Classrooms received new walls to replace current classroom partitions. Flexible furniture replaced older furniture in the beginning phases of the Bond work. Winchester’s main entrance vestibule was remodeled to increase security, and at Silver Springs, the main office has moved to create a secure entrance. Lighting infrastructure and mechanical systems were upgraded to enhance the learning environments.

Ridge Wood

Ridge Wood’s renovations included the replacement of interior finishes in classrooms and upgrades to the media center with the intent of collaborative learning. A Makerspace was created within the building. Flexible furniture replaced older furniture in the beginning phases of the Bond work. A remodeled main entrance vestibule increases security and upgraded mechanical systems enhance the school building environments and provide longevity of the infrastructure.

NHS recognized as a Special Olympics National Banner Unified Champion School

Northville High School was selected as a 2021 National Banner Unified Champion School by the Special Olympics for the school’s continued commitment to bringing inclusion for all students.

A Special Olympics Unified Champion School has an inclusive school climate and exudes a sense of collaboration, engagement and respect for all members of the student body and staff. A Unified Champion School receiving national banner recognition is one that has demonstrated commitment to inclusion by meeting 10 national standards of excellence. These standards were developed by a national panel of leaders from Special Olympics and the education community.

In 2014, a group of students started Uniquely Unified (formerly Smiles for Students,) a student organized peer mentorship club. Shortly after, NHS offered a Peer-to-Peer links class to provide mentorship into the classroom. In 2017, the first unified basketball team was formed focusing on peer mentorship in athletics. The Unified Robotics team was founded during the 2020-2021 school year and found success in the May 22, 2021 competition against Novi High School as students received the Exceptional Feature Award, Team Spirit Award, Inclusion Award, the Sportsmanship Award and were deemed the tournament winners.

Uniquely Unified will add a student leadership component tying with Unified Athletics/Robotics, making Northville High School a Unified Champion School, thus becoming a National Banner school. The organization hopes to offer two more unified sports this coming school year.

Northville High school is among 49 other schools nationwide to receive this honor this year. In Michigan 20 other schools have been named banner schools over the past 5 years.

“Your school community has shown impressive determination and is helping us move towards our collective goal of creating a truly ‘Unified Generation’ of young people who embrace differences and lead social change. You are literally redefining the future as you make your communities more inclusive of people with intellectual disabilities, and in doing so, making the world a more accepting place for all.” - Timothy Shriver, Ph.D., Chairman, Special Olympics International & Tony Wyllie, Regional President, Special Olympics North America

The expectation of this recognition is that the 10 standards are continuously being met, year after year. To ensure this sustainability, schools reapply for banner status every 4 years.

Third Graders to participate in Heritage Festival

On Friday morning, September 17, 2021, Northville third graders will participate in the Annual Northville Heritage Festival.

For over 30 years, Northville students have learned about and engaged with their Northville community by attending presentations at multiple venues and experiencing history coming alive through storytelling, Victorian games, musical performances, and a magician, along with historical skits performed by Northville High School students and more. During the field trip to downtown Northville, students participate in rotations of activities with classmates at several locations furthering their understanding of their local community.

The entire event reinforces the social studies curriculum taught during second grade, providing a culminating experience as students begin third grade. Dressed in Victorian clothing, students observe and question historians as sources of information to learn about the past as they develop a deeper understanding about daily life during the early settlement period.

Northville Heritage Festival continues through the weekend!

On the evening of Friday the 17th, third, fourth, and fifth grade students are invited to join in the Heritage Festival parade accompanied by their families wearing their Victorian apparel. The parade lines up at 6:00 p.m. and begins at 6:30 p.m., originating and ending behind Old Village School on Cady Street, directly west of the Northville Public Library. Parade participants should park in the lot across from the Post Office and walk over to line up (Cady Street will be closed to through traffic starting at 5:30 pm.) Complete information regarding the parade and weekend activities can be found on the Chamber of Commerce website. Remember, the Victorian Parade is a community-sponsored event, and students MUST BE accompanied by an adult and wearing Victorian attire.

Elementary Makerspaces provide early exposure to STEAM

Northville Public Schools is proud to support STEAM/Design thinking in all of our elementary buildings. Utilizing the new Makerspaces provided by the 2017 Bond Project and supplies acquired through funding from the Northville Educational Foundation, students will participate in weekly STEAM activities that emphasize early exploration in science, technology and engineering.

Makerspaces are classrooms designed for students to freely define, solve and try out solutions to ideas. Northville Schools Makerspaces allow space for students to engineer, problem solve and learn about the design thinking process from idea to implementation. These spaces contain materials, tools and projects that allow students to come up with an idea and try it out to see what happens as they proceed through the Design Thinking Process. It fosters creativity, critical thinking and ingenuity.

NPS hired two teachers whose sole job is to teach Design Thinking and encourage STEAM learning in these new spaces. Every K-5 student will have one trimester with these teachers in these spaces to experience this learning. During the rest of the year, these spaces are available to other classroom teachers to use with their classrooms to do similar learning.

Thank you voters for your support of this project and your dedication to the education of the youth of Northville!

All NPS elementary schools are Leader in Me Lighthouse Schools

Congratulations to all of our elementary schools who received the Lighthouse recertification as Leader in Me schools!

The Lighthouse Certification is a highly-regarded standard set by FranklinCovey that is attainable by every Leader in Me school. As it is a significant benchmark, applying for this certification typically occurs four to five years after a school begins the Leader in Me process.

Amerman was recertified in April 2021, Moraine was recertified September 2021, Ridge Wood was recertified in May 2020, Silver Springs was recertified in June 2021, Thornton Creek was recertified in November 2020 and Winchester was recertified in April 2021. In addition to receiving the lighthouse recertification, Thornton Creek and Winchester were highlighted and mentioned multiple times in the recent publication of “The 4 Disciplines of Execution for Educators” for the initiatives, goals and work taking place in their schools. Our schools are a leading example of the Leader in Me program.

Below are comments from the Lighthouse recertification reports for each school.

Amerman: “Your buddy system is a great way for older students to mentor younger students while strengthening meaningful relationships.”

Moraine: "Your school worked hard to create a warm and welcoming environment for all students. Your school wide kindness initiative was a great way for students to share their voice and build meaningful relationships. The physical environment of your school is enhanced with beautiful student artwork, Habit Trees, inspiring quotes, and leadership displays."

Ridge Wood: “Your teachers do a great job integrating the Habits into daily lessons and activities, including how the 7 Habits can be found in literature. Students and teachers also collaborate to create classroom and personal mission statements.”

Silver Springs: “Your Peer Pals program is a great way for students to strengthen meaningful relationships and enhance a sense of community. You strengthen your school’s emotional environment with check-in/check-out feeling forms, zones of regulation, calming kits, mindfulness activities, and second step lessons.”

Thornton Creek: “A strong partnership to develop the whole person has been established between the school and families.”

Winchester: “Classroom and community leadership events engage student voice in planning and leading events. Students have an opportunity to develop, practice and demonstrate leadership skills.”

SC EDGE: Early Middle College Inaugural Class

Northville Public Schools welcomed its inaugural class of the SC EDGE Early Middle College program this fall!

This program is a Michigan Department of Education five-year approved Early Middle College program and an excellent opportunity to begin college classes while in high school. An Early Middle College is designed to allow a student to complete both a high school diploma and one of the following additional credentials:

  • 60 transferable college credits
  • An associate degree
  • A professional certification
  • The Michigan Early Middle College Association (MEMCA) technical certificate, or
  • The right to participate in a registered apprenticeship

The SC EDGE program is primarily delivered online, and it combines the flexibility of online learning with a structured and facilitated format. Students complete work for their Schoolcraft classes as part of their Northville High School schedule. Classes are taught by Schoolcraft College faculty.

One of the greatest perks of the Early Middle College classes is that the program is funded through the school district’s local funding sources, providing participants with a very low cost option for a college degree or certificate.

Northville Public Schools Public Notices

2021/2022 Advisory to All Parents: Pest Management

Northville Public Schools has adopted an Integrated Pest Management program. Inherent with this are the district’s efforts to reduce pesticide use as much as possible. While it may occasionally be necessary to apply a pesticide, this program does not rely on routine pesticide applications to resolve problems. We use various techniques such as habitat alteration, sanitation, mechanical means, exclusion, etc. to prevent pest from becoming a problem.

As required by Michigan law, parents will receive advance notice of non-emergency application of a pesticide (insecticide, fungicide, or herbicide), other than bait or gel formulation, which is made to the school, school grounds, or buildings. This advance notice of a pesticide application will be given 48 hours before the application by the following two methods:

1) Posting at the primary entrances to your child’s school. The entrances that will be posted are the main entrance and those that have a sidewalk that leads directly to a parking lot.

2) Posting in the common area located by the main office of the school. Please note that notification is not given for use of sanitizers, germicides, disinfectants or antimicrobial cleaners. In certain emergencies, such as an infestation of stinging insects, pesticides may be applied without prior notice to prevent injury to students, but you will be promptly notified following any such application, via the two posting methods identified above.

Parents may review the school’s Integrated Pest Management program and records of any pesticide application upon request by contacting Steve Banchero, Northville Public Schools Director of Operations at (248)344-3540 or bancherost@northvilleschools.org.

Parents or guardians of children attending the school are also entitled to receive the advance notice of a pesticide application, other than a bait or gel formulation, by first class United States mail postmarked at least three days before the application, if they so request. If you would like to be notified by mail please contact the department in writing at NPS Operations, 15045 Fogg St., Plymouth, MI 48170. Please include, your name, your student’s name(s), mailing address and what school(s) your student(s) attend and you will be put on the advance notification by US Mail list.

Learn more about Stormwater Management

Northville Public Schools is committed to the environment and strives to be a good steward of the land within its jurisdiction and to use appropriate Best Management Practices to contribute to the improvement of water quality within the Rouge River Watershed where the district is located.

Northville Public Schools encourages all students, faculty, staff, parents, and visitors to get involved through opportunities provided by the local water shed groups including Friends of the Rouge and the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG).

Why worry about stormwater?

Many people may not realize that stormwater collected in drains located on the curbs of their streets does not flow to their local water treatment plant. Rather, this water remains untreated and is discharged directly into the waterways. During this journey to the waterways, stormwater collects and carries a broad range of pollutants. Stormwater is a non-point source of pollution thus making it extremely difficult to address and the single greatest threat to our water quality and watershed health. Non-point source pollution comes from many diffuse runoff sources such as rainfall, snowmelt, flowing over and through the ground, picking up pollutants as it goes. Some of these pollutants occur naturally, such as nutrients from sediments, manure, or pet wastes. Others pollutants such as fertilizers, automotive grease, and oil occur from our interaction with the environment. Stormwater acts as a carrier of non-point source pollution and therefore considered a major cause of water quality problems both in Michigan and nationwide.

Public Notice of Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP)

To this end, the school district has developed and has implemented a “Stormwater Management Program Plan (SWMP)” to reduce the discharge of pollutants from their MS4 to the Maximum Extent Practicable and protect water quality in accordance with the appropriate water quality requirements of Michigan Act 451, Public Acts of 1994, Part 31, and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and the district National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Permit (NPDES).

A copy of the Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) is available for review on the district’s website at https://www.northvilleschools.org/apps/pages/stormwater. Any questions or comments regarding the Stormwater Management Plan should be directed to the Operations Department at 248-344-3259.
