Northridge Academy hosted the one hour presentation by Brenda Hartley of the Hero Town USA organization educating our students about real life heroes as well as inspiring our students to act heroically in their environments by demonstrating the four tools a hero need:
Use Eyes and ears
Take a Risk
Our students had fun participating in this interactive learning program by singing, dancing, and interactive discussions as they learned how to be able to say:
A Hero to Be...That's Me!!!
Northridge Academy has been a proud participant as a Site Leader for the University of Michigan and Virginia Tech's Alternate Spring Break Programs. Our teachers were able to guide the university students in managing day-to-day classroom instructions at the K-8 instructional level and the university students were able to share their excitement and enthusiasm of teaching and learning with our students and teachers. In fact, to demonstrate their excitement the U of M students brought books with them to pass out to NA's students. This was a rewarding experience for all involved!
