On your mark!
On the first day of school, students were tasked with creating recycled clothing for a beauty pageant.
The result was classy and not trashy.
The news paper in our pieces represents the large number of opinionated statements mixed in with the factual coverage that journalism provides, while also doubling as a stylishly long capes, tutus, dresses, and shin guards. Those provide our heroes the protection of free speech, which shields them from cooperate propaganda. Our heroes are clad with all forms of communication such as mail. Mail once was a part of the postal system, connecting people from across the country with more than just tweets.The packing bags and boxes provide protection from breakage, and represent preservation above all else. The bags in in each piece are holding the wealth of knowledge that is only bought with time.
Since the beginning of the the year, the school has had many fun days.
One such day is Community Service Day, where students have the opportunity to give back to the community by doing tasks such as building a drop library, making homemade grape juice, and cleaning up the garden. This is a day that demonstrates that Network Charter is a community of people working toward a common goal.
Spirit week this year started with Halloween, which showcased some very inventive, interesting, and fun costumes. Students were encouraged to wear their Halloween outfits to school. Of course teachers were included.
A peek at the future
A group of students had the privilege of going to the OSU campus for tours of the different colleges. All tours were OSU-student led and covered many fields, such as engineering, liberal arts, and science.
Raising money for school
Fun fact: Network Charter School has a partnership with the U of O allowing for students and adult friends and faculty to prepare and sell concessions at football home games. In return NCS gets to keep some of the profit in order to fund things like the school dances, prom, and field trips.
A Big Donation
This year NCS was fortunate enough to receive a large donation of around 1,200 pounds of masa, oats, flax, and cocoa powder. Valued at few thousand dollars, it was a very generous and much appreciated gift from Hummingbird Wholesale. The students pictured above together packaged around 600 pounds of all the food donated.
