Northwood News April 3-7

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

Thank you for Choosing Northwood!

Dear Northwood Community,

Happy April! We started the month off strong with our Carnival on Saturday. A great time was had by all and it was a super successful and fun event. This allows our PTA to fund many special programs and events throughout the year! Thank you to our amazing community for supporting PTA

This week is National Assistant Principal Week! We do not have enough words to express our appreciation for Mrs. Lee!! She is simply the best and such a wonderful part of our community. If you see her or talk to her this week, please join me in thanking her for all that she does!

Don't forget! It's a short week this week with a school holiday on Friday. We hope you enjoy the extra day to spend with family!

Be sure to read to the end of the bulletin for a lot of important updates and reminders about everything that is going on at Northwood!

Have a great week and thank you for your support!

Mrs. Harper
