Principal's Message

    Dear Northwood Families,

    Fall has arrived!  I hope you have enjoyed the transition of the seasons over the past few weeks.  After the smoky days, I found the rain and cooler weather refreshing.   

    As happens each year, our teachers and students have spent 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.  Although this has been occurring in a Zoom-based environment, I've been impressed with the ways in which learners are making connections with each other, playing together during classroom choice time, and getting into the groove of learning routines.  Translating our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program to the remote environment has provided consistency for our students as they work to “Be the Three” each day.  Staff have taught, practiced, and acknowledged expected school behaviors each day.  Staff are distributing numerous Soaring Owl tickets to our students to acknowledge the good choices they are making each day.  Great job, Northwood Owls!
