Greetings Fellow Titans –
With the colder weather come plans for the holiday breaks. Please remember that instructional time is protected at Northview and we ask that students be present up until the beginning of scheduled vacation days. Thanksgiving Break will be November 24 – 26 and the Winter Break is December 23 – January 4, 2011.
Testing before each holiday break is scheduled by subject to alleviate the added stress of too many assessments on any given day.
Looking ahead, final exams for 1st semester are December 20 – 22, 2010. Unit tests for Science, Language Arts and Electives will be Tuesday, December 14th. Wednesday, December 15th is designated for Math, Social Studies and World Languages. This will allow for review days on Thursday the 16th and Friday the 17th.
If for some reason your child will miss final exams, please realize that they will not be given early. Do not ask! Any exams that are missed can be taken on either January 4, 2011 (Teacher Workday) or during the first week of 2nd semester. All exams and outstanding work must be completed within the first 10 days of the following semester. However, please realize that it is important for all instructional time to be respected – we strongly discourage students from missing these important testing days.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank all the parents, students, staff members, and community leaders who worked on this year’s International Night. The turnout was unbelievable and the food, talent, and dedication of all present was a testament to Northview’s celebration of diversity.
I hope to see all the moms next Tuesday for Bring Your Mom to School Day!
As always, feel free to contact me with additional questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bring Mom to School Day
Parent to Parent
We are asking Northview’s faculty and staff to do two things:
1. Donate “like-new” items (housewares, clothing – ties, purses, etc…) from your own house as you have in the past. We will also gladly take any brand-new items (no more than $10-15…ties from a discount store) for these children to give to their parents.
2. CONTEST details: Encourage your classes to bring in the same items that we would like for you to donate. Student Council will provide a Chick-Fil-A breakfast for the 1st period class that collects the most items. Please start collecting items ASAP. The contest ends on Monday, November 22nd. We’ll ask teachers to email a total from their class periods on that day, so please keep track.
Your children may be coming home and asking you for items to contribute to this worthy cause. It is truly awe inspiring to see the glee in these children’s eyes when they select a special gift for that loved one! Please help our kids make this another unforgettable year for the Mimosa students!
