Please take time to view Ms. Hatcher's first grade class' "Something About Rocks" videos. After studying about rocks in Science they used the Yakit Kids app to create infobits about rocks as told.....from rocks! It was such fun. Way to go Scholars. Check it out on our Youtube Channel by clicking on the pic above.
This year the annual Art and Music Navigator Showcase (an evening dedicated to celebrating the arts at Northside) will be held in early spring so that both art and music can be fully represented. We will be having a small art exhibition in conjunction with the opening of the Book Fair onfrom . This will be an 'Art and Read Night' and will consist of displayed student art, a collaborative art activity for families and multiple read-alouds (and of course the Book Fair)!
'Spread Love' Northside Mural:
Beginning this week, navigators are collaborating to create a mural showing their love for the Northside community! The objective is to build an understanding that art can be made by a group of people to express a common feeling or idea. Each student is designing a heart on paper or fabric that will be compiled and mounted on a large piece of foam core and displayed. At our Art and Read Night, families will have an opportunity to add onto the 'Spread Love' mural.
Art on Display at CHPL:
Check it out! Ten of our second graders have landscape artworks on display at the Chapel Hill Public Library this month. Using warm and cool colors, students captured time of day, temperature and added personal details. Each one is unique to the artist who created it.

BIG SHOUT OUT..... The NOTM STEP TEAM! They paired up with the Zeta Phi beta sorority, competed and won the 2016 UNC Step show Friday evening. The girls did a great job and put Northside on the map! To view the winning competition, click on the following link, https://youtu.be/bGMgipF4oIQ.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was created to directly affect positive change, raise consciousness, encourage the highest standards of scholastic achievement, and foster greater sense of unity among its members. In collaborating with Northside Elementary's Navigators on the Move Program for stepshow, members of the Omega lota chapter sought to use this as an opportunity to spread that vision to a younger generation. Through this experience they wanted to stress not the physical skills of performance but also life skills of endurance, persistence, confidence, and cohesion. It's through such efforts that they hope to continue to influence more community-conscious, action-oriented legacy.
