Beginning with a hot dog roast sponsored by PTA, families will tour the campus and see demonstrations of student learning in the Multi-purpose Room, the science lab and in open classrooms.

Northside School embraced the STEAM curriculum focus to enhance student learning experiences.  Special emphasis has been the creation of science lab under the full-time direction of teacher Amy McComb.  This first-rate science lab was furnished with state-of-the-art technology and equipment. Parents will see student work including atomic models and a giant periodic table from studies about atomic structure; projects about heat and energy transfer; work from the unit on ecosystems including food webs and chains; models of neurons from the life systems unit; planet tri-folds and constellations from the space unit as well student science notebooks from the entire year.  There will be hands on activities that have been done throughout the year.

Also available for exploring will be the new greenhouse, which was built with a generous donation from Teichert, extending hand-on science activities for Northside students.
