The SSD Board of Education officially recognized SSD’s Northview High School for being named a National School of Character.

The Board also honored Diamond Perry, a student at Northview, who presented one of Northview’s Promising Practices at the Missouri Character Education conference.

Diamond shared her story with the Board at its meeting on December 12. She explained how Northview has had a positive impact on her, and how the school is helping her to succeed in life.

This is the second time that Northview High School has been named a National School of Character. 

Northview Earns National School of Character Honor

national school of character badgeNonprofit organization Character.org has named Northview High School as a 2017 National School of Character.
 
Northview is one of 83 schools and four school districts being recognized nationwide in 2017. It is the only one of 17 schools honored in Missouri that serves an entirely special education population.
 
Each year, Character.org selects schools and districts that demonstrate through a rigorous evaluation process that their focus on character development has had a positive impact on academic achievement, student behavior, school climate and their communities.
 
“The students and staff really put forth their best effort when it comes to character education, from activities in the classroom to reaching out to the community, mentoring at elementary schools and providing character education lessons at the local elementary schools,” said Northview Principal Brian O’Connor. “They’ve really gone above and beyond to make this happen. So congratulations to the staff and students.”
 
Selected schools will serve as models for other schools, helping them to achieve the same results.
 
“We are extremely proud of this year’s National Schools of Character as well as our district recipients. Their dedication to character development has proven over time to increase the well-being of so many students, their families and their communities across the United States and beyond, " said Doug Karr, president and chief executive officer of Character.org.
 
Northview is one of 17 schools being honored in 2017 that are former National Schools of Character reapplying for the national designation.
 
Character.org will honor the 2017 National Schools of Character at the National Forum on Character Education, to be held Oct. 20-21 in Arlington, Virginia.

Harvest Festival


Friday, November 15th is the date for another great Northview Tradition: 
Harvest Fest.  Our students love this day which includes a tug-of-war competition,  cookie decorating, needle in the haystack search, pumpkin seed spitting competition, and turkey (teacher) races.  The weather has been perfect for this afternoon activity for the past few years and with fingers crossed, this date will provide perfect weather as well.
