Remote Learning at Northwood
Northwood teachers and support staff are hard at work this school year teaching and supporting students during this time of remote learning.
Our teachers have set up their lessons in modules found in their Canvas classrooms. They hold classroom meetings and small group chats through Microsoft Teams, and have been providing social-emotional lessons on a daily basis to our students.
Our staff miss seeing our students directly and are looking forward to the day when we can safely return to in-person teaching. Until that time, we will continue to focus on what we do best and that is teaching our students the content we love with care and compassion for our students and our community.
Our Core Values
At Northwood, we believe in supporting students in making good decisions around our four core values.
Lessons will be taught and reinforced throughout the year to support the learning of each of these values.
Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow
At Northwood, we believe every student is a leader and we work to nurture their leadership skills in the classroom, outside of the classroom, and in our community. While we may have more limits set upon us for engaging in activities such as athletics, clubs, and community events, we know that students can still be leaders in their own learning and in their virtual classroom.
During remote learning, taking responsibility for one’s own learning will be the most important skill and probably the most challenging for our students. Our staff are here to support them every step of the way.
Our Commitment to You & Your Student
During your child’s years at Northwood, our goal is to prepare them to be independent thinkers and learners and the best possible individuals they can be. We know as middle school students there will be times when they might need additional support with their academics and social-emotional needs.
We have a great, experienced teaching staff that are here every day to support your child. We also have two full-time counselors, a full-time Community in Schools mentor, mental health counselor, and a drug and alcohol counselor available to support our students. If any of these services are needed, we will work with you and your student to provide the additional support to make your child’s experience at Northwood successful.
We look forward to making middle school the best experience possible for our students.
