Northwood Notes

Royal Oak Schools: A Community of Excellence


Home Edition

Mission Statement

Northwood Elementary School will provide higher-level learning opportunities for all students to maximize their potential in a safe, nurturing, respectful, and diverse environment.

March is Reading Month

March is Reading Month! Arrrrgh! Open a book and find a treasure! The media center has turned into a Pirate's Cove, and our "bookaneers" will celebrate reading all month long. Please look through reading information that comes home with students. The class with the most minutes will display the reading trophy for their grade level. "Yo ho, yo ho, reading is right for me!"

PBIS Focus

The focus for the next week will be: Bathrooms

*Go, flush, and wash your hands.

*Return to class quickly.

*Respect the privacy of others.

*Keep the bathrooms clean.

*Use only what you need (soap, toilet paper, etc.)

*Voice level 2.

*Wait your turn.

*Wash your hands with soap and water.

*Use walking feet.

*Report problems to a teacher.

Please review with your children. Thank you.

Dress for the Weather

Please make sure students are dressed for the cold temperatures. We will go out when the temperatures are approximately 15 degrees (with wind chill). Thank you!

Jump Rope For Heart

Northwood raised a total of $8300 for the American Heart Association! This amount is a record for a Royal Oak school. Students will receive their "thank you" gifts 2-4 weeks. Thanks to Keith Doody for heading this up.

Thanks to our generous community! You are amazing.
