Northfield’s 2017 School Performance Framework results are in: We are in the green!
Northfield is meeting district expectations on the district report card which covers areas from academic achievement to parent and student survey responses. We were excited with our growth and ready to celebrate our success with our teachers, parents and community.
Specifically, Northfield meets district expectations when it comes to students performing at grade level, closing academic gaps for our English Language Learners, and closing academic gaps for our students of color. Northfield is in the blue — meaning our school exceeds expectations — in preparing students for college or a career and closing academic gaps for our students with disabilities. Read Northfield’s full SPF report card here.
We are proud to announce that Northfield is partnering with New Perspective Real Estate and several local business and organizations for the 7th Annual Stapleton Community Food Drive from September 30 – October 9. The food drive helps families and children who suffer from hunger and poor nutrition in and around the Stapleton community. The drive will help us stock our school’s food pantry.
Today we are asking for your help! There are three ways to donate:
1) Bring your canned goods and other non-perishable donations to our COLLECTION BARREL here at school Sept. 30-Oct. 9. Northfield’s wish list includes: spaghetti sauce, pasta, rice, beans, canned tuna/chicken, boxed mac/cheese, hearty soups and chili, peanut butter, canned fruit/vegetables, cereal, oatmeal, granola bars and other healthy snacks.
2) Stapleton residents: Look for the WHITE COLLECTION BAG delivered to your home on Saturday, September 30. Generously fill it with non-perishable items, place the bag on your front porch by 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 7, and volunteers will pick up your donation that day.
Nighthawk families, have you applied for the free and reduced lunch program? Being a part of this program may also qualify students for scholarships, reduced testing fees, book waivers, reduced athletic fees, reduced bus fees and other benefits.
Nighthawks, help us win a FREE CONCERT at Northfield!
The radio station KS 107.5 is holding a contest among high schools in DPS. Between now and Oct. 2, students and Northfield supporters must listen for when they can text the keyword “Nighthawks” to the number 69803.
Rosa Jad, a DJ from the radio station, will be at Northfield during the lunch hour on Tuesday, Sept. 26 to promote the contest.
At the end of the campaign, the school with the most text messages will win a free concert from a surprise Billboard Hot 100 chart topper. Let’s win it, Nighthawks!
The new bell schedule that reflects Northfield’s revised lunch hour is now available.
The revised schedule takes effect on Monday, September 11. Freshmen and sophomores will now have lunch at the same time as juniors later in the day. Juniors will still be the only class permitted to leave campus for lunch.
