Principal's Message

  • August 16, 2019

    Dear Northwood Parents and Guardians,

    It is hard to believe that the first day of school is almost here.  We hope you have had a wonderful summer with friends and family, and that you and your children are eager to begin the year.  The Northwood staff is looking forward to welcoming students and families in a few short weeks. 
    I would like to extend an extra warm welcome to families new to our district and our school. We look forward to meeting and working with you.  

    District Back-to-School Forms - Required RSVP Process
    Our Mercer Island School District forms and payment information are all ONLINE, through a process called RSVP.  A postcard and email were sent to families in early August to explain the process. Families are able to log into their Skyward Family Access account and complete all the district forms, permission slips, and notifications required for the start of school. Parents and guardians will also verify their student demographic information and update phone numbers, email addresses, and emergency contacts.  All parents will be required to complete the RSVP process prior to viewing their child’s classroom placement.  NEW this year:  district policy now requires EVERY family to verify their residency.  RSVP information and directions can be found on our district website at Skyward Access and RSVP .

    Important:  You will not be able to access who your child’s teacher will be until you have completed the RSVP process.

    Back-to-School Welcome Events
    We have several events to welcome all our families to the new school year.

    • Northwood Classroom Open House:  On Tuesday, September 3, 2019, from 3:00-4:00pm, all our teachers will open their classrooms to welcome families into the learning space.  This is a chance for students to find their new classroom, visit some of the learning spaces throughout the building (i.e., gym, library, Spanish & art rooms, library, resource room, etc.) and for parents and students to meet the teachers.  This is also a great time to drop off your child’s school supplies. (For those families who purchased supplies in the Spring through SchoolKidz, your child’s supplies will already be in the classroom.)
