Junior Merchant's Expo - April 4th from 9am-noon

posted Feb 5, 2020, 10:06 AM by Hillary Stasonis   [ updated Feb 5, 2020, 11:34 AM ]

Talented children and teens will be selling their arts, crafts and culinary treats. Shop their products and visit with other young entrepreneurs who will be promoting their business services.

The North Andover Merchant's Association, along with the Joseph N. Hermann Youth Center, is proud to host the 2nd Annual North Andover Junior Merchant's Expo.  This event will provide an opportunity for kids to sell their handmade crafts and artwork or promote their business services.  The event is open to, but not limited to, musicians, lawn care service, computer experts, photography services, and bakers.  You will be able to sell your products and promote your business by handing out business cards and showing photos or videos of the service you provide.

The community embraced this event last year.  Our hope is that the event can support children as creators and entrepreneurs and encourages them to work with their hands, learn project management skills, put mathematics to use, and explore their creative self-expression.

Event Timing:  April 4, 2020 9 AM- 12 PM
Event Location: Joseph N. Hermann Youth Center
Contact: Sally Finnimore  finnimore@verizon.net   Phone: 508-277-2312

Beyond the Classroom

posted Dec 18, 2019, 7:49 AM by Hillary Stasonis

With the three school cancellations in December, we have used up our traditional “snow days” for this year. Our last day of school will be Friday, June 19. For any future snow days, we will be using our Beyond the Classroom assignments.

With Beyond the Classroom, students will complete an assignment at home in lieu of making up the cancelled day in June. (As you might remember, in 2017-18 our students didn’t finish the school year until June 27th!)

So, what happens when school is cancelled again?
If school needs to be cancelled again this school year, it will be announced through the usual channels: on the District Homepage, on Dr. Gilligan's Twitter account, and via phone calls and emails home. In these messages, students and guardians will be directed to the Beyond the Classroom website to find their assignments: Assignments will NOT be due the day students return to school. Instead, students will have at least 1 week to complete the assignment.

Have more questions or need more information? 
Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page on the Beyond the Classroom website

Support LYLEF - Silent Auction & Raffle

posted Nov 6, 2019, 7:33 AM by Hillary Stasonis   [ updated Nov 6, 2019, 7:37 AM ]

The Live Your Learning Education Fund (LYLEF) needs your help! This scholarship fund provides equity and access for all NAHS students by providing scholarships for experiential learning opportunities. We believe that all North Andover students should have access to learning experiences outside of the traditional classroom that foster critical 21st century skills. The Live Your Learning Education Fund supports students who lack financial means to take advantage of these opportunities, both domestic and international. LYLEF opens doors to students, many of whom have not had experiences outside of their own community, who would not be able to participate in these rich educational experiences without financial aid.

Please consider supporting experiential learning for all students by purchasing a raffle entry or bidding on our online silent auction!
