Northside School Calendar
NED Days - Student Enrichment 2015-16
This year our school will have many opportunities for student enrichment including: Northside Enrichment Days. There are 14 Northside Enrichment Days scheduled for next year. For example on a NED Day your student will attend two classes with a guest expert in music, Spanish, Art, or Robotics and in the afternoon attend a STEM assembly such as Phil Tulga or the Auburn Symphony.
Northside believes students are deserving of an enriched meaning-centered curriculum. Furthermore, Northside's practice of teaching to individual students promotes advanced study for those students who are ready to move on to the next step in the learning ladder. Northside’s instruction is not limited to, nor prescribed by textbooks. As evidenced by our Northside Enrichment Day assemblies and guest teachers. This year we have fourteen scheduled N.E.D. days. On these special days, regular teachers are released from classroom responsibilities at in the morning to study school wide data while students receive instruction from guest teachers who specialize in enrichment curriculum linked to the common core. Additionally, these same students attend assemblies in the afternoon designed to support the development of academic language acquisition and development in English Language Arts and STEM. This practice of releasing teachers to examine student work is used to determine how to drive instruction at Northside in the future. This style of banking time facilitates our Professional Learning Communities and releases our staff TK-6 to collaborate.
That is not the only way our students can participate in enrichment. We will have sign ups for afterschool Spanish instruction, Robotics, Drama , before school Music Club and during school Northside Garden classes. All this and so much more thanks to our Dream Team PTA and you!
At Northside students have multiple choices to enrich their learning:
