NORTHWOODS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

JULY 2019

WELCOME

Northwoods Elementary Magnet School Faculty and Staff would like to welcome all of our students and parents back for a new school year. We hope that all of our families had time to enjoy the summer break and are ready to get back to school. Our first day of school for students in grades 1-5 is Monday, July 15. We are also excited to see our new Kindergarten students arrive and begin their educational journey with us. Kindergarten students will be staggered in for the first 3 days beginning on July 15. The 2019-2020 school year promises to be a year full of educational experiences for all of our students and families.

ORIENTATION

NWES will have two student orientation sessions on Thursday, July 11. Our first session will be from 11:00am to 12:00pm. The second session is from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. We offer two sessions for the convenience of working parents.


Please come join us to meet your child's teacher, receive important information and enjoy lemonade and cookies.

STUDENT ENROLLMENT

This is a reminder that if you have moved into our school district, it is not too late to come in and register your child. Our first day of school for students is Monday, July 15. You will need the following documents to complete the student registration:


  • Child's Original Birth Certificate
  • Child's Immunization Record
  • Parent Picture ID
  • Proof of Residency (current utility or water bill)


Students attending Kindergarten will be staggered in for three days beginning on Monday, July 15. Kindergarten students must be five on or before August 31, 2019.

A FRESH START

Help your child begin the new school year on a positive note. As he/she returns to school after the summer break, have them ease back into familiar routines. They may need gentle reminders to resume habits like setting an alarm before bed, packing a snack in the morning, or showing you papers from their backpack after school.
