Hello Northpoint Community Members & Supporters!
Northpoint's Rotary Interact Club is hosting another
American Red Cross Blood Drive!
What a unique way to serve your community and save a life!!
Students 16 and over can donate with parent permission.
(Get a permission slip from Ms. Dolan. Also bring an ID to prove you are 16.)
If you have questions or would like to reserve a specific time for donating,
please speak to any Rotary Interact member or Ms. Dolan.
Come and see the amazing work NELA students have done throughout their intensives; stay and donate blood! We hope to see you there!
Notice the quote "In an effort to engage students and prepare them for the rapidly changing world that meets them on the other side of graduation, some schools are turning to “expeditionary learning” to teach students to think in a focused, project-based environment.
This approach to learning means that students don’t switch topics when they switch classes; instead, all departments create their curriculum around a central theme."
This is very similar to the structure of our semesters and the way our staff works together to plan the delivery of information that is focused around a "theme" a.k.a. "expedition".
Thanks for being a part of Expeditionary Learning right here in Prescott, Arizona. Please feel free to share this information and find it on the school FaceBook page also!
