From the NVPS Superintendent's blog - Northview wins...

My wife Ruth and I attended our first home football game in the Northview District this past Friday night.  The final score of the game indicated a win on the field for our players and coaches but a much bigger win was very evident that night.  About mid-way through the first quarter Ruth leaned over and said "this is why Northview works for kids." 

As we looked around the athletic stadium we could see evidence of the huge support our school district receives from parents, grandparents, community members without children in schools, staff, and the students themselves.

Plainfield Township water system continues to improve

Public infrastructure is essential to the well-being of any community. Without properly designed and maintained infrastructure, a community's very existence is jeopardized. Failing to repair, replace, upgrade and improve a community's infrastructure will result in unreliability and risk to the people who have every reason to depend and rely on these basic underpinnings of our community. Where would we be if we could not rely on telephone communications, roads and bridges, gas and electricity, sewer and water 99.99% of the time? Most people understand that you can't just build a road system, an electricity grid, or a water system and leave it.

It's all about the earth

Lunch trays
The students at Crossroads Middle School are committed to continuing their “green” efforts with recycling of lunch trays this school year. Thanks to their efforts, daily trash bags have been reduced in number from 11 down to 4. WOW! That saves the Earth and reduces refuse removal fees for Northview! Students also routinely “feed” the hungry Crossroads Paper Gator daily with recycled paper.

Paper
We ask the community to join us in this effort! Please feed Northview’s Paper Gators at Northview High School, Crossroads, Highlands, East Oakview, North Oakview or West Oakview. Being good stewards of our resources is a great reason by itself, but in this case Northview also earns funds for recycling!
