North Judson-San Pierre 6th Grader Spreads Kindness with Her Award Winning Design

A North Judson-San Pierre middle school student was chosen as a finalist in a nation-wide charitable design contest. At last night’s NJSP School Board meeting, sixth grade teacher JoAnn Gappa and her student Hailey Wright spoke to board members about the Wonder Kind Project.

Mrs. Gappa told board members that her students have recently been reading and working with the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio. One activity she provided to her students was to create a visual representation of kindness and inclusion for a design challenge. GAP Kids started the Choose Kind Challenge inspired by the book, which centers around a child with a Craniofacial condition.

Wright explained the challenge to the members of the board saying, “We all had to design a t-shirt and bunch of other teachers around the world did it and they only picked 8 finalists.” She said her inspiration for her design was to show how we are all different but still “fit in”

Mrs. Gappa explained that 100 percent of the proceeds gathered from the student-designed shirts will be donated to charities that work to educate, empower and transform the lives of children and families living with Craniofacial differences.

As an added bonus, Wright also won a GAP gift card, shirts for her class and a pre-showing for her and her classmates of the upcoming movie inspired by the book. Mrs. Gappa said if all goes according to plan, they’ll also be able to face-time with some of the actors from the movie for a Q&A prior to the screening.

Homework Hotline

posted Aug 10, 2015, 4:20 PM by North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library   [ updated Sep 9, 2016, 12:35 PM ]

Homework isn’t always easy. That’s why the Homework Hotline is here to help. It’s a free math and science tutoring service for Indiana students in grades 6-12.

Tutors are Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology students who major in math, science or engineering—which means they’re more than equipped to help with virtually any math or science homework problem.

Student privacy is always protected, and students are never asked for their last name or phone number. The Homework Hotline is funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

The program is certified by the National Tutoring Association.

Athletic Schedules for NJ-SP

posted Nov 16, 2013, 10:53 AM by North Judson-Wayne Township Public Library   [ updated Apr 28, 2017, 8:33 AM ]

When does the boys/girls (insert sport here) start?  Who's their first game against?  Where will it be played?  

Well, my first response to that would probably be to ask you, "Are you referring to Varsity, Jr. Varsity, Freshman, 7th & 8th grade, or 6th grade?"  So to make it simpler, we are giving you a link to the North Judson-San Pierre Athletic Department on the North Judson-San Pierre School website.  Or just go to http://www.bluejaysports.org/main/calendar to see what's happening. 

You can create a fan account and receive alerts when sports schedules change due to postponements or cancellations. Go to www.bluejaysports.org to create an account. The school website has detailed instructions!  

You can find out what is going on each month by visiting http://www.bluejaysports.org/main/calendar.  In order to see information about the month or season you will need to "Select Teams".  This will open up a window where you can select the SPORT - ie:  football, basketball, swimming, baseball, volleyball, etc, or leave it on ALL SPORTS; then select a LEVEL - ie: varsity, jr. varsity, 8th, 7th or leave it on ALL LEVELS; finally select GENDER - ie: boys, girls, or leave it on ALL GENDERS.  Click on ADD and then VIEW SCHEDULE.  You will then see everything that is scheduled for the items you chose.  You can change the information you see at any time just by changing the items you select. 

The calendar can be arranged by Day, 5 Days, or Month.  You also have the option of choosing a particular Season which will open a window giving you basically the same options as under "Select Teams".   You can click on each event to get more information - ie:  time, date, location, which school/schools are part of the event (golf, track).  

If you don't have a smart phone, or would just prefer to access a website, use http://www.bluejaysports.org/main/calendar  to view the athletic schedules.
