Be Smart. Be Kind. Be United. Be a Unicorn.

Thank you for Choosing Northwood!

Dear Northwood Community,

Happy May! This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! What a wonderful time to celebrate the people who make such a difference in the lives of our children and love and teach them like their own. Please join me this week in thanking your child's teacher.

On Tuesday, we will have our last PTA general meeting of the year, starting at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria. Come help us elect our new officers for next year and stay for a wonderful performance from our Kindergarten and 1st Grade students.

As we are getting closer and closer to the end of the year, there is a lot going on! I have put together a one page document with all of the events happening in May. You can click on THIS link to view the document and feel print it for future reference.

We will continue to keep you posted of the events coming up with all the details as well.

Have a great week and thank you for your support!

Mrs. Harper
