Dear Northwood Families,
We seem to have flown through September and October to arrive in November. November brings with it lots of change and activity: Daylight Savings/Standard Time, Veterans’ Day, Progress Reports, Parent-Teacher Conferences, and the Thanksgiving Holiday. These changes to routine can be challenging for children (and families) to navigate. We can work together to support students through these changes by sticking as much as is possible to regular routines and attendance at school.
This message contains the following:
- Social Emotional Learning Night
- Outdoor Clothing and Lost and Found
- Social Emotional Learning & the Regulation Room – Did you know?
- Global Reading Challenge – Attention 4th and 5th Grade Readers
- Character Traits and Mindfulness
- Upcoming Events
We believe that the connection between school and home is vital for the success of students. One of the important ways that we nurture this connection is through annual Parent-Teacher Conferences. These conferences are seen as so important that we interrupt school to provide 3 days for the conferences (November 25, November 26, and November 27, this year). These 3 days are work days for teachers, and if they will not be here during this time they must take them off as personal leave.
It is a burden for teachers to provide conferences outside of these 3 days. Many of our teachers do their best to accommodate family traveling schedules, but please be aware that this is a hardship on them. If you plan to be away during our conference days, please consider a phone or skype conference (during the 3 work days), rather than asking teachers to meet before or after the designated conference days.
