Dear Northwood Community,

I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend, got some rest and had some fun! It always feels like we are really into the swing of things after Labor Day.

If you have not already signed up to meet with your child's teacher, please be on the lookout for a sign up sheet. This will be an important time for you to find out how your child is currently performing and what skills they will working on to make it a successful year.

Tonight we have our first general PTA meeting. Please join us at 6:00 in the cafeteria to find out our how school and community work together to make this the best school around! After the short meeting everyone is invited to come out to the gym and play. We will have all of our favorite equipment out and the rock wall will be open. you don't want to miss it!

Also, this week we are inviting our grandparents to come celebrate their special day by having lunch with their grandchild. We are so excited to have this event back. Please see below for more information. Don't forget to let us know you are coming.
