ARETE AWARDS
It’s time for our Northview staff to nominate students for the Arete Awards. 
  • What is Arete?  Arete in its basic sense, means "excellence of any kind".   The term also refers to "moral virtue.”
In its earliest appearance in Greece, this concept of excellence was ultimately tied to the idea of the fulfillment of purpose: the act of living up to one's full potential.
 
Being selected for an Arete Award is a special recognition.
Teachers are thinking about these qualities:
  • good character
  • leadership
  • citizenship
  • compassion
  • attitude
  • strong work ethic
  • or exemplary moral and personal traits
Students selected for an Arete Award will be recognized at a luncheon reception in April.
