Dear Northwood Families,

Shhh...listen carefully, but don’t speak too loudly .... Coming up next week, we are looking for some "Mystery Readers'' to visit the school and read to our classes and students. The Literacy Committee and Northwood School will be celebrating Read Across America Week from March 18th - 22nd. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in being a "Mystery Reader,” please email your child's teacher to set up a day and time that works best for everyone in alignment with the daily school schedule. Feel free to bring along a favorite story, or read one from the classroom library, and if you need help choosing one, please just ask.  Obviously, all books and stories need to be age appropriate, so if you have any questions, please reach out to any of the classroom teachers for clarification. We look forward to enjoying new stories with our "surprise" guests next week!  Thank you for your participation!  

~Mr. Ling and the Literacy Committee

2024 Literary Magazine

Students are invited to submit original writing to the literary magazine, which will be published at the end of the year. Students may email their poems, stories, plays, or essays to their classroom teacher or to Ms. Carloni.

News from Kindergarten

During Motor Lab kindergarteners played leprechaun games this week. We are hopeful that the traps set this weekend catch a leprechaun, and gold will be found.
