We have some exciting news! The Northview Variety Show will be happening this year! It will look different than in years past, but we are looking forward to showcasing our talented students this spring.

This year's theme

More information to come soon, but we wanted to give eveyone time to brainstorm. Remember this isn't just a musical. We love seeing all sorts of skills. You could dance, juggle, play an instrument, magic, do a science trick, show us your karate skills, tell jokes, recite a poem, or anything creative. Rules will be the same as before...under 3min, schoolage appropriate outfits, lyrics, and moves. We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Back to School Tomorrow!

โ˜ƒ๏ธDon't forget your bundle bags with labeled winter gear for recess and a change of shoes for in class and P.E. If your younger child has not practiced getting their gear on and off independently, today would be a great time to practice. This makes starting recess and getting back in class much easier and safer for everyone.

Good afternoon Valparaiso Schools Community,

One week from today we will engage in our extension of eLearning Wednesdays. We understand that for many of you, this will require the addition or extension of child care services for your family. If that is the case, we want to support you in meeting that need.

Our community partners, Boys & Girls Club and the YMCA, will continue their child care services during the second semester eLearning Wednesdays. All families are welcome to utilize these flexible child care programs that allow students to attend for a full or partial day with health protocols in place. Both of these agencies support students in completing their weekly eLearning assignments on-site, and parents at home with their children on Wednesdays may also consider this option. Free transportation, breakfast, and lunch are provided. For more information or to register your student for child care with these partners, please access the links below.

Valparaiso YMCA Flyer
Valparaiso Boys & Girls Club Flyer

Fee assistance associated with child care for Wednesday eLearning is available to families. There are no prerequisites to requesting fee assistance, and financial support may be applicable to child care facilities beyond Boys & Girls Club and the YMCA. Also, families with unique child care circumstances specific to the needs of their child should reach out to VCS for support in developing an individualized plan. Click here to contact VCS about child care fee assistance and additional support and resources.

This weeks' newsletter is filled with great photos and information including the following note from Mr. Hershberger.
From the Principal's Desk... First Semester Reflections

Think back... several months ago we stood at the precipice of a new school year filled with uncertainty and apprehension. However, we were all determined to do the best we could to give our students the best opportunity to learn and grow in ways that their families felt most comfortable. Fast forward to the present. There's still uncertainty in the air, but from our joint experience one thing is certain. Together, we can take courageous steps to keep our children learning, growing, and experiencing a semblance of their elementary years. I am so thankful for...

The manner in which many parents acted proactively with our nurse to keep students out of school when necessary and thus avoiding a major outbreak. We had some challenging weeks but ended the year with 1.3% of our students on quarantine and the school stayed open for students throughout the semester.The relentless effort of the NV staff to provide remote and in-person learning opportunities as well as emotional support as students & staff were coming and going due to quarantine requirements.The NV PTO and supportive parents for helping to keep "fun" in our elementary children's experience, for a fantastic playground upgrade, and for a lot of behind the scenes support.The effort that many parents, grandparents, and childcare providers have made to partner with us, particularly on eLearning Wednesdays, to keep students learning and cared for during this pandemic.The resilience of students to abide by the new requirements such as masking up.If there ever was a year that called upon us to work together, it's been this year. The remainder of the school year lies ahead and is not for the faint of heart. But, together we have navigated through the first semester and that gives hope that we will face what comes during the second semester, making courageous choices for the good of our children.

But for now, I extend a simple, yet heart-felt thank you to all of the Northview community. Let's take some time to experience the holiday season in a way that renews traditions, creates new memories, and refreshes our relationships. All the best to you. Happy Holidays!

Mr. Hershberger

As you may have heard, VCS has made the decision to keep Elearning Wednesdays for the remainder of the 20-21 school year.
Here is the information sent from Dr. McCall.

December 18, 2020

Good Afternoon Valparaiso Schools Community,

Last night, the Valparaiso Community Schools Board of Trustees approved the recommendation to improve and extend weekly Wednesday eLearning days through the second semester. You may access the revised 2020-2021 School Year Calendar here: Revised 2020-2021 School Year Calendar. Please note, the scheduled half-day on Friday, April 9th has been changed to a full day.

This recommendation was designed as a responsive model to the detailed feedback received through many group discussions, a parent survey, and the town hall forum surrounding the first semester system. A summary of weekly Wednesday eLearning hallmarks including improvements for the second semester can be found here: Scheduled eLearning Hallmarks 2020-21.

Our community partners, Boys & Girls Club and the YMCA, will continue their child care services during second semester weekly Wednesday eLearning. All families are welcome to utilize these flexible child care programs that allow students to attend for a full or partial day. Fee assistance associated with child care for Wednesday eLearning is available to families using the link below. Families with unique child care circumstances specific to the needs of their child should reach out to VCS for support in developing an individualized plan. Click here to contact VCS about additional support and resources including child care fee assistance.

Valparaiso Boys & Girls Club Flyer

We believe the improvements and resources available in the second semester model will provide support for students and families while allowing teachers the time necessary to plan, execute, and manage high-quality learning experiences for in-person, remote, and quarantined learners.

We wish all of our school community a safe and enjoyable winter holiday break.

Partners in Education,
๏ฟผโ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹

๐ŸŽ…The PTO was excited to partner with the Food Services Dept.,Mrs. Bear and other staff to make today special for our students. They had a holiday lunch in a winter wonderland, class games, a special reading of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas by Mr. Hershberger, an art lesson from Mrs. Garbison and goody bags with prizes from the PTO. And to finish the day a special visit from from Santa and his Elf! Miss Bronner's class even got a phone call from the North Pole! We'd like to thank everyone who made this day a success! And a special Thank you to Albanese and Town and Country for your donations, and to Mr. Wolfenbarger and his Elf for Santa's visit.
