Principal's Message

  • November 6, 2020

    Dear Northwood Families,

    I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and well.  With the transition into the autumn season and the change in the clocks, we also move into a very busy school season.  This month’s calendar is always a bit wonky due to holidays, progress reports, and parent-teacher conferences.  As much as we are able, maintaining the school rhythm and routine we have built over the last few months can support our learners (and ourselves) in feeling successful during this busy time of year.

    This message contains the following:

    • Conferences
    • Character Traits and Mindfulness
    • NW PTA Turkey Drive
    • Health Attestations
    • 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 23, November 24, and November 25, this year). These 3 days are work days for teachers, and if they will not be here conferring with families during this time they must take them off as personal leave.  Although school has looked different in many ways this year due to COVID-19, it is our goal for these conferences to remain a meaningful opportunity to connect.

    Teachers have been reaching out to families to coordinate conference schedules.  If you haven’t already heard from your teacher, you can expect to hear from them shortly about scheduling a time to confer.  The conference dates are just around the corner, and our teachers look forward to meeting with you and discussing your child’s growth and learning. Thank you for working with us for the success of our students!
