Mission Statement:

          Northwestern STEM educates a diverse population with a challenging curriculum that prepares them to prosper in a multicultural society.

Vision Statement:

          Northwestern STEM will be highly regarded for its academic excellence and serve as the school of choice for middle school in the greater Battle Creek community.

Message from the Principal:

The end of year is quickly approaching and we have just finished up our new State of Michigan’s standardized test (M-STEP) except for a handful of makeup testers.

Summer School Application deadline is June 5th. Turn into the office at Northwestern. Applications were mailed home and copy's can be picked up in the main office at Northwestern. This is a great opportunity for students to maintain their academic skills and enjoy project based learning activities through the 21st century programming. All secondary courses (5th through 12th grade) will be at Battle Creek Central High School.  

The Bearcat’s PULL team (Parents Ultimately Limiting Loss) had a successful “Canvassing” campaign on Saturday, April 18, 2015. Summer meeting dates will be determined soon and an announcement will be made through our all call system and website. You can contact the PULL Team at pullteam2015@gmail.com and a parent or community member will contact you in regards to your questions.   

End of Year Celebrations:

5th Grade Recruitment Night and Ice Cream Social: Tuesday, June 2nd at 5:30 p.m. starting in Northwestern’s Auditorium. Parent and Student Speakers will address why Northwestern is your school of choice.

Awards Night: Thursday, June 4th (Times based on grade level and letter of invitation).

Friday, June 5th is now a FULL day of school and our PTO is planning to do a celebration for students during school that day as well.

At the end of May, our PBIS team is planning to celebrate students for “FAB” Friday by taking them bowling. To qualify students must have zero Reflection Room Trips, Safety Referrals, and Tardies as well as a grade of “C” or better in all 7 classes. Congratulations all “FAB” Friday participants!!! Each month the tracking starts over so we hope to have even more students next time.

CHANGE OF INFORMATION: Please make sure your student(s) contact information is correct and current. It is very important that this information is kept current at all times. Please make sure the contact names are correct as we will NOT release any student to anyone who is not on the master list. Please call or stop by the school office.

PARENT CONNECT: Is a web portal for parents to access information about their students. Lunch information, grades and news from school will be available with a simple login and password. Contact the school secretary to sign up today.

MEDICATION: All prescribed medications must have a written prescription form from the physician accompanying any medications given out to the students. Please make sure all prescriptions are clearly labeled, including inhalers. Inhalers must have a prescription on the box, or labeled on the inhaler without a box. This ensures us that we are administering the correct medications to your students. Thank you for your cooperation.
