FINAL NORTHVIEW HS COFFEE CONNECTION – Tuesday, April 28th

Our final Coffee Connection at Northview High School is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28th from 7:45 to 8:45 AM in the Collaboration Room. Please park in the PAC parking lot off of Rahn Drive and enter through the PAC doors.  Directional signs will be posted to the Collaboration Room.

Our Student Spotlight will shine on Alicia Monteith, recipient of the 2014-2015 Outstanding Student Service Award given in recognition of her commitment to raising funds for the Children’s Assessment Center.  To date, Alicia has raised over $60,000 and isn’t finished!  Her story is truly inspiring.

Our Staff Spotlight will focus on Rich Youngberg, Campus Supervisor and Adviser to the student-led Environmental Leadership Committee and Fly-Squad.  Rich has 20 years experience planning and guiding various wilderness trips around the world.  He has led and planned extensive fly fishing adventures, backpacking trips, wilderness canoe trips, and whitewater rafting trips for people of all ages and ability levels.

In addition High School staff will present pertinent information pertaining to what is happening at the High School.  We will finish the hour by devoting some time touring the building and visiting some classrooms for a few minutes.   This will give you an opportunity to see first-hand the outstanding quality of our staff and a peek at our culture.

We hope you can join us!
