Welcome to Northwood Middle School: A Year of Growth and Excellence!
Dear Northwood Families and Community Members,
I am thrilled to extend my warmest welcome to all of you as we embark on an exciting journey into the 2023-2024 school year at Northwood Middle School! It is with great joy and enthusiasm that I address you as I enter my second year as Principal of this remarkable school. Your support and dedication to our school have already left an indelible mark, and I am confident that together, we will continue to foster an environment of growth, learning, and community.
As we gather once again for this new school year, I am thrilled to share the news of the expansion that Northwood has undergone this past year, leading up to this current moment. Welcoming 6th graders into our middle school model for the first time marks a significant milestone, and I am overjoyed to greet our new 7th graders who have transitioned from elementary school as well. To our returning 8th graders, your presence and leadership continue to inspire us all. This diversity of experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives is the heartbeat of our school, enriching our collective journey.
Mark your calendars for an event that promises to be a highlight of the Fall - our Open House on September 21st, 2023, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. It's a wonderful opportunity to meet our dedicated educators, explore our vibrant classrooms, and gain insights into the educational experiences that await our students this year.
At Northwood, our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, and Empathy remain the foundation upon which we build each day. These values aren't just words on a wall; they shape the very fabric of our school community. We believe that by embracing these values, we cultivate not only academic excellence but also the qualities that make our students outstanding citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
As we look ahead to the year, I encourage all our families to become actively engaged in the Northwood community. Your involvement, whether through volunteering, attending events, or simply maintaining open communication with our staff, has a profound impact on our students' growth and success.
In closing, I want to express my gratitude for entrusting us with the education and development of your children. Northwood Middle School is more than just a place of learning; it's a home where we nurture dreams, celebrate achievements, and build lasting connections. I have no doubt that this year will be nothing short of amazing, as we work hand in hand to create a supportive and inspiring environment for our students.
Here's to a year filled with endless opportunities, growth, and shared accomplishments. I am genuinely excited to witness the strides we will take, the memories we will create, and the impact we will collectively make. Let's make this year at Northwood Middle School truly exceptional!
With warm regards,
