Northwest Middle School Fieldtrips

This year at Northwest Middle School, 17 interdisciplinary teachers have planned various field trip opportunities to extend student learning outside the walls of the classroom.  According to research, field trips have a positive impact on students’ cognitive skills, knowledge, interests, and future career choices.  Additionally, field trips increase student understanding and knowledge about their neighborhoods and the communities in which they live.  On December 14th we had our second field trip day. Students were able to go to Hill Air Force Base, Thanksgiving Point, The Leonardo, or the Planetarium. All of the field trips were a success and the students did a great job of representing Northwest Middle. Our next field trip day will be on February 8, please encourage your student to attend!

Donations for Northwest

Thanks to the amazing generosity of Community Volunteers, the volunteer board of Utah First Credit Union, 500 students received brand new shoes through the Warm the Soles campaign.  Each year, they donate 1,000 pairs of brand new shoes to kids. Northwest was lucky enough to be on the receiving end of 500 of those shoes.  Our students give a huge thank you to Community Volunteers.


Thank You to Kids Next Door

Thank you "Kids Next Door" for your generosity in helping our kids in need. A special thanks goes out to Michelle Benedict, Roxey Catnzaro, Maureen Shumway and Kendall Fuscher.

Thank You Teachers and Staff

THANK YOU Northwest staff members for making our Warrior Tree such a success this year! We were able to serve 10 students and fulfilled all of their wish lists (something you want, something you need, something that’s warm, something you’ll read). The counselors are touched by everyone’s support for our students and so grateful to work with such a wonderful group of passionate educators.
