Zervakos, Principal _________________________________________________________________________ Welcome to Northview! Our journey began four years ago with the opening of Northview. During this time, many traditions were formed that will last a lifetime. Our students brought home numerous honors and awards, and this year reveals even greater promise for success. My challenge to all students, both new and returning, is Get Involved! With over 80 academic clubs, performing arts activities, social organizations, and service clubs coupled with twenty -five GHSA sanctioned and club sports, there is something for everyone to do at Northview. More importantly, I have found that students who get involved in school activities realize greater academic success than those who are not involved. Academic excellence is our primary goal and must be your goal as well. Northview offers many choices in all academic areas. An extensive visual and performing arts program, a full complement of advanced placement subjects, five foreign languages, cutting- edge Career-Technology offerings, Army JROTC, Talented and Gifted options, Special Education, internships, and a smorgasbord of electives join together to give every student an opportunity for success. On behalf of the entire administration, I wish you the best for a successful school year. If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Sincerely, Peter F. Zervakos Principal FRESHMEN TIPS ? Don't worry about the Seniors. They are too involved with being Seniors to worry about the Freshmen. ? High school is much harder than middle s chool, but still make time to enjoy your Freshmen year. ? Keep your school spirit! ? Follow the dress code or you may end up sporting something from lost and found. ? Pass all your classes or you'll end up in summer school. You can't afford it! ? Keep your eye on your backpack . . . don't let it walk away. ? Don't rely on the honors points to save your grade . ? Don't cry over spilt milk, i.e. get over it! ? Buy a yearbook and newspaper, you'll enjoy the memories. ? All four years of high school are important, not just the last one. ? Keep your cell phone turned off and out of sight if you don't want to donate it to your teacher. ? If you have a conflict with a teacher, work it out privately after class. You're more likely to get your way if you are respectful and calm. ? You're in high school now. Use your parents as a last resort. ? If you get an office slip, don't panic . . . it doesn't always mean you're in trouble.

Students are to be seated and ready to begin when the tardy bell rings. Homeroom meets on Thursdays. Eleven things you need to know, but may not have known to ask: 1. What are AP courses? Advanced Placement Courses are mainly for juniors and seniors. These classes are among the most rigorous in the school. Students take the College Board AP Exams in the spring and can earn college credit if they score extremely well. 2. What is open gym? Each morning before school, the gym is open to students for pick-up basketball. Lots of students participate so do not be shy! Two ground rules: no food in the gym and use only school basketballs (do not bring your own basketball to school). 3. Why should I visit the College & Career Center? The College & Career Center is located in the Counseling Office and is a great place to get information about colleges, careers, scholarships, and summer programs. Students can also receive assistance with making college applications on-line. Students may use the center during their lunch periods or before school. It is definitely worth exploring if you plan to have a life after high school. 4. Why do we call our cafeteria the “food court?” Because that is just what it is. There are five lines serving regular lunches, pizza, and all kinds of sandwiches and a la carte items. 5. When are the concession stands open? The gym concession stand is open only during indoor sporting events; the auditorium concession is open every day right after school. The food court vending machines are always available; vending machines in other areas are only on after school. 6. Who gets to use the courtyard? The courtyard is the center of our school and is always open to all students. If you eat in the courtyard, pick up your trash or Mr. Z. will get very upset! The courtyard and food court make our building unique, so please treat them with respect. 7. What is a Titan? The Titans were the greatest warriors of Greek mythology who ruled over all. They were so brave that they even s challenged the gods of Mt. Olympus. Today’ NHS Titans are students who are involved in school, show common respect, and stand out among all others! 8. When do we have homeroom? Generally, every Thursday between first and second periods. Extra sessions are called as needed. s 9. What is the Principal’ List? s This is Mr. Z’ favorite award program because it gives do him a chance to thank the students who “ the right thing” every day. Students who qualify are invited to a special assembly and receive a Titan Card that is good for special discounts. 10. What if I am having a problem with a teacher? See your assistant principal, counselor, Dr. Macris, or Mr. Zervakos! Teachers are human and will sometimes push your buttons, but you are still expected to be the respectful. Let “ experts” advise you as how to best handle the situation. 11. What if I am having a conflict with a student? Above all, do not allow yourself to get into a verbal or physical altercation or you will be going home for a long while! See Officers Johnson or Robinson, your assistant principal, or Mr. Zervakos; they will not get involved unless you want them to, and they can help you resolve the situation before anyone gets into trouble. THINGS EVERYONE MUST KNOW: Lunch: ? There are two lunch periods. ? If you need to go see a teacher or go to a room on an academic hall during your lunch period, you must have a written pass. ? Students must stay in the Food Court, Commons, or Courtyard areas— be sure to keep these areas clean. ? You can also go to the Media Center, Counseling Office, Clinic, Main Office, or Attendance Office. ? Wait until the bell rings to go to your locker or head to class— this is an important rule! Getting Called to the Office: ? If you get a slip in class to come to the office, go straight there; do not detour or forget to go. ? If you did it, confess (people talk); if you didn't, stay cool — mistakes happen. ? Do not panic— getting an office slip does not always mean you are in trouble. Dress Code: ? NHS has a simple dress code; the faculty wants you to be yourself but remember: absolutely no hats, bandanas, shirts with alcohol, drug, or tobacco references, bad words, or sexual innuendo on them, or body parts showing that shouldn't be showing! ? If a teacher or administrator asks you to change— DO IT! It's not worth getting in trouble over!! Leaving Campus: ? Do not leave the building/campus witho ut permission from the office— this is a big deal. iPods, CD Players, Cell Phones: ? If you have a cell phone, keep it out of sight and turned off until after school! Nothing is worse than having a phone go off during class, then having it taken away by the teacher. ? If you have a cell phone taken up, a parent can pick it up any time after the next school day. ? CD players and iPods are for the bus, cafeteria, and before or after school— keep them put away during class and assemblies or they will be confiscated. ? If a teacher asks for your phone, iPod, or CD player, don’ t argue. You will get it back much faster and catch a lot less grief if you cooperate. Morning Announcements: ? Listen carefully so you don't miss important information about deadlines, special meetings, etc. ? If you do something unusually good, you might even hear Mr. Z bragging about you or your team over the intercom. ? Also, check the Titan Notes for information— they are posted in most classrooms, on the website, and by the Media Center. Website: ? www.northview,com is the official website of our school ? You can use this to check dates and announcements or to contact teachers through email. ? There are many research links. ? The site is a great way to learn about what sports and activities are available and to contact the coaches or sponsors. ? The Student-Parent Handbook and Academic Catalogue can be found on the website. Smoking: ? No smoking is allowed anywhere on, or within 1,000 feet of campus by anybody. ? This includes being in your car.
