Northview Elementary School 5

Posted December 12, 2015

I am a parent of 2 children at Northview. While Northview isn't the newest building in the district; what is happening on the inside is excellent. The teachers are amazing and make personal connections with the children. Parents are involved with volunteering in the classroom and with creating community. The PTO supports the school with fundraising that supplies books, software licenses, external programs (such as science programs with The Works or various theater programs) and more. The PTO also supports community-building activities such as Family Fun nights, Art Adventure (a Minneapolis Institute of Arts program) and the annual school carnival. Northview got a new principal last year who is passionate about children and supports programs within the school. While sports are supported through the Eagan Athletic Association; Northview has several extra-curricular activities. This year there are several Destination Imagination and Lego League Robotics teams. There is a Ski Club for 4th and 5th graders. Spanish is offered as an after-school program. Band begins in 5th grade and the annual 5th grade trip to Deep Portage is a highlight.

I thank the principal for her support of the extra-curricular activities at the school. I also thank the teachers for their commitment to the kids in their classes.

The kids have some homework and it changes based on their grade. As they get older they are expected to do some math, reading and spelling each night.

The kids do activities where they discuss language they can use instead of "I can't", etc. There are different programs that support developing persistence.

Respect is one of the main tenets of the Northview All Star code that all kids learn from day one at Northview.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

This questions also goes back to the Northview Star Code of being respectful. I can't remember what it is called, but they also have a program for the playground where no one can say no when someone asks to play and there is a bench or something where if a kid wants someone to play they can go there as a sign they would like to be asked to play.

Northview operates with an All Star Code from the time the kids are in kindergarten. They are taught to be responsible, respectful, safe and kind.

Wow! This school goes above and beyond. I have 2 children that attend Northview. One is in the gifted and talented program and the other one has difficulty in all subject areas. The teachers at this school have gone to great lengths to make sure our children's individual needs are met. My kids love going to school!

This school will not protect a young autistic boy named Collin, 9 years old. He has been bullied by the same kid for 2 years!!!! What in the world are they thinking. Every child deserves to grow and learn in PEACE. Dear principle please, please pay attention to what is going on around you in your school you are helping to mold a child for the future ... let's not let it be a negative one.
