Who knew math could be fun? Mrs. Luther’s 1st/2nd class learned math is so much more than numbers. First grade worked with patterns with cubes and Second grade is working with Geoblocks to create pictures.
Our next food distribution is this coming Tuesday, September 13th, from 3 to 5 PM!
We are asking for your assistance in keeping our schools safe. As you know, our schools are usually bustling with activity such as visitors dropping by for various reasons. As a reminder, here are our guidelines when multiple people are arriving at the same time.
If you have buzzed in and are being screened and you notice another visitor is arriving, please don’t hold the door and allow anyone in without being screened first.
If the other visitor is 15 feet or less from the door, please buzz in and be screened together. If the visitor is more than 15 feet from the door, please buzz in and ensure the door is closed completely after you enter.
We certainly want to encourage politeness and our visitors understand that it is unsafe to hold doors and allow visitors in without being verified by front office staff first. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Procedimiento de Entrada de Visitantes Múltiples
Hola Familias y Visitantes,
Estamos pidiendo su ayuda para mantener seguras nuestras escuelas. Como saben, nuestras escuelas generalmente están repletas de actividades, como visitas que llegan por varias razones. Como recordatorio, estas son nuestras pautas cuando llegan varias personas al mismo tiempo.
Si ha llamado y la oficina le está verificando y Ud. nota que llega otro visitante, no sostenga la puerta y permita que nadie entre sin verificación primero.
Si el otro visitante está a 15 pies o menos de la puerta, llame y pasen juntos por la pantalla. Si el visitante está a más de 15 pies de la puerta, llame y asegúrese de que la puerta esté completamente cerrada después de entrar.
Sin duda, queremos fomentar la cortesía pero sabemos que nuestros visitantes entiendan que no es seguro sujetar las puertas y permitir que los visitantes entren sin que el personal de la recepción los verifique primero. Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

North Windy Ridge Intermediate (NWRI) students took a trip to Biltmore Estate to enjoy the scenery and learn about local history. The students had a busy day touring the large facilities, the farm and the home, and learning about horticulture, architecture, and local history. They got to learn about horse drawn carriages, metalworking, looms and weaving, and see the estate and a variety of farm animals.
“It’s history in our backyard,” said NWRI Principal Brent Wise. “Every student should see it at some point in their lives. It’s all about making connections with our local history.”
The school’s first trip to Biltmore, the NWRI PTO raised the funds for this trip that the students won’t soon forget.
