The 7th 8th grade Plant Feastival will be held on Tuesday, March 31st  in the NVCS Gym from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Students will need to be there by 6:15 to help set up their boards and area.


In this project, each 7th and  8th grader was assigned a group and plant to research. Each group of students is has created a presentation board, formal expository paper and recipe components for the Plant Feastival. The Plant Feastival project is integrated into Math, Science, History, and English content areas. Students must make arrangements to meet with their group to create their recipe prior to the event. All 7th and 8th grade students MUST be present on Tuesday night of the Plant Feastival unless prior arrangements have been made and a middle school teacher has been contacted.


Please come and invite all your family and friends to enjoy great presentations, food and drink! Feel free to contact one of the middle school teachers with any questions or concerns, otherwise bring your appetites and hope to see you there!

March 5, 2014 from 4:00-7:00

 We do ask that you keep each individual conference to approximately 5 minutes so as many parents can meet with us as possible. 

 We also will be hosting an Honor Roll Celebration on Wednesday, March 4th for 7th grade students and Thursday, March 5th  for 8th grade students  with A/B report cards and all A reports cards.  This celebration will be from 7:15-7:45 and is a great opportunity to meet with your student’s teachers as a replacement for a sit down conference.  Please look for invitations that will be sent home with students who have qualified for the NVCS Honor Roll on Monday, March 2, 2015.

 If you are unable to make it during these times, or would like to meet with a teacher for a more extensive time period, then please contact that teacher directly and they will be more than happy to accommodate these requests.

Changes to Lunch/ Recess 7 and 8 Grade

posted Nov 7, 2014, 12:42 PM by atarkinson@newvisioncharterschool.org

Beginning Monday, November 10th, New Vision will be implementing recess BEFORE lunch for grades 2-8, a national movement which, according to several studies, yields great benefits. Schools that have adopted recess BEFORE lunch report students eat more of their lunch and therefore cafeteria waste is reduced drastically. In addition, through consuming more food, students increase their consumption of nutrients from healthy foods (fruits, vegetables, milk) that contain important vitamins as well as calcium; nutrients that help them to focus in the classroom.

The 7/8 grade recess/lunch time is as follows:  12:30-12:45 Recess and Lunch 12:45-1:10

We are also asking that 7th and 8th grade students bring a good, substantial snack to eat during the morning during advisory since they will now be having lunch at a later time.  Thank you!
