Huddle up! Huddle is new at Northside. It’s a lot different than the kind of stuff Northside has done in the past, and it may change the school system completely.

Huddle is adding a class which would take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday every week. It was started in effort to either create more opportunities for students to get help in a certain class or give different student organizations and clubs more time to meet with each other.

For example, let’s say you are failing a class. You will now have the opportunity to make-up or re-do assignments and tests during the Huddle period.

Assisted Principal, Tony Jones voiced his opinion on the new program.

“If the program does not succeed, we might have to stop it this year,” Jones said.

Jones also advises every student to take the Huddle period seriously. He also explained how each teacher will construct the Huddle period.

“[The] first thing we’ll do is try to understand why they’re not doing it [in] attempt to motivate [the student] so they can graduate high school,” Jones said.

Although the Huddle program has been explained to the student body, many students still don’t feel that it is worth the time. Jones also took time to address this.

“Some kids have to ride the bus, which makes it difficult to come after school and get the help they need. Some have jobs right after school, which makes it difficult for them to attend [the class that they need help in],” Jones said.

Many believe that this program is not interesting while some students will take advantage of the extra help. We will have to wait to see how well it works out.
