NMS Family Update
Starting 2024 Strong
Welcome to February! Last month was full of excitement, achievement, and weather. Here at Northwood we are celebrating 5 days of school this week. This month, we are excited to celebrate and highlight Black History Month.
The 3rd quarter is moving along quickly. We encourage you to speak with your students consistently about their grades and assignments. If you need help accessing PowerSchool please reach out to us. Below are 2 important notes.
- Below is a PBIS survey for families to complete. We would appreciate your feedback as we continue to improve our school culture and student experience.
- Conferences are coming up on February 15th, we would like to invite each of you to speak with your child's teachers.
Please scroll down to review the February calendar, enjoy student highlights, and read an important safety reminder about traffic flow. Please read about out February focus of "Social Media Safety" as well.
As always, please reach out if you have any questions or need clarification on anything. Our wonderful office staff are always here to help.

PBIS Parent Survey
The teachers and building staff have been working hard this year to implement positive behavior interventions and support for all students. It is important that we receive feedback from families on strengths and needs to continue to make improvements.
Below is a survey that is used nationally to get feedback on our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) program. For each section there will be a question asking if you think the item is “In Place, Partially in Place, or Not in Place” in our school. The next section will repeat, but will ask how important this is to you. Do you think it is a “High Priority, Medium Priority, or a Low Priority.”
We appreciate your time and support and look forward to using your feedback to continue to improve for our students.

Math Talk with Mrs. VK
Everyday 8th grade students are able to visit Mrs. VK at the stairs for Math Talk. This is a great opportunity for students to GET and GIVE extra help!
Our 7th and 8th grade cheerleaders are working really hard this season. Mr. Cap has agreed to perform with them during the last home game if they continue to work hard in and out of the classroom.
