Student Council Note-Spread Some Cheer!
The Student Council met and they need some help with a project they are working on! Students would like to "Spread some Cheer in the New Year" by making cards to send to individuals in the senior living communities in Northfield!
If you would like to participate, create a card with an uplifting and cheerful message in it. Remember that you will not know who will receive the card so you want to create something that could be given to anyone. Cards can be dropped off in the box at the front office at school. You can make AS MANY cards as you would like!
Please let Ms. Woodstrup or Mrs. Hall know if you have any questions.
Thank you, BW Bears for helping bring joy and happiness to others!

Message from the Northfield Library
Here is the message for families:
“Countdown to Noon”, I’m really just hoping folks will do it anywhere (don’t have to tune in to library on Facebook)—wouldn’t it be fun to “celebrate” the end of this challenging year “together” simultaneously as Northfielders?
First Chapter Fridays, Fridays at noon (or any time afterwards), December 11-February 26, on Facebook and YouTube
For elementary-aged kids. Listen to the first few chapters of a recommended book and decide if you want to read more! While these are "videos", there will be nothing to see beyond the book's cover, author information, and available formats. Take some time to just close your eyes, listen, and discover a great new read. Recordings will be archived on facebook.com/northfieldpubliclibrary and on the library’s YouTube channel to listen to any time. We’re kicking things off with some of this year’s Maud Hart Lovelace nominees!
Countdown to Noon, Thursday, December 31, at 11:55 a.m. on Facebook
Who's ready to say a jubilant, hearty goodbye to 2020? Join library staff at 11:55 a.m. on December 31 live on Facebook at facebook.com/northfieldpubliclibrary and countdown to noon (a tradition so younger kids can also celebrate "counting down to the new year"), shout "Happy New Year!", bang pots and pans, throw confetti, sing "Auld Lang Syne", and celebrate the start of something new! Let's make some noise for 2021, Northfield! (If you don’t want to join us on the library’s Facebook page, you can still participate wherever you are! How cool would it be for all Northfielders to celebrate “together”?
Thank you for considering! While I know some folks are tired of this phrase, I truly hope you and yours are doing well.
