Northwood News April 10-14

Be Smart. Be Kind. Be United. Be a Unicorn.

Thank you for Choosing Northwood!

Dear Northwood Community,

April is the month of the military child. This week we will honoring and celebrating military children and the sacrifices they make by having a parent or parents in the military. Purple is the color of the military child since it is a combination of the colors of all the branches of the military. On Friday we will "Purple Up!" and wear purple along with a special dress and recognition each day. Please see below for all of the details.

Next week on Wednesday, April 19 our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will be taking the STAAR Reading test. Please make note that this will be a closed campus day. We will not allow any visitors or volunteers on campus this day. Please take note and mark your calendars accordingly.

Be sure to read to the end of the bulletin for a lot of important updates and reminders about everything that is going on at Northwood!

Have a great week and thank you for your support!

Mrs. Harper
