Dear Northwood Families,
Fall has arrived! I hope you have enjoyed the transition of the seasons over the past few weeks.
As happens each year, our teachers and students have spent a great deal of time over this first month of school getting to know one another, building their classroom communities, and focusing on positive expected behaviors and routines for success. Teachers teach, model, practice, reinforce, and acknowledge expected routines and behaviors for the school environment. We have a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support system (PBIS) with the expectations that Northwood Owls “Be the Three: Be safe, Be respectful, and Be responsible to grow our hearts and minds.” Consistency of expectations supports students in their learning and comfort at school. When staff notice students displaying positive, expected behaviors, students are acknowledged with a positive personal connection and a Soaring Owl ticket to celebrate the good choices they are making each day. Great job, Northwood Owls!
