Dear Norwood Families,
Welcome back to the start of a new school year at the Norwood School! I am extremely excited about returning for another great year with the Norwood team and look forward to working with each of you for many years to come. Our teachers have been busy preparing their classrooms and lesson plans that promise to make for another exciting and productive year here at Norwood. Our site custodians and the District's maintenance crew have once again worked hard to prepare the campus for the start of the new school year. All we need are our terrific Norwood students!
Class lists will be posted outside the main office on Friday August 16th. Classroom assignments are based on matching students' learning styles with teachers' teaching styles and personalities. We must balance each class based on academic abilities, health issues, and behavior concerns. We also put into consideration friendships, as well as teacher and parent input when possible. Every effort was made to create classes that are balanced and beneficial to all students. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this process.
We are here to serve all students in our community. We offer a wide variety of quality programs to meet the needs of each student. We have a highly qualified faculty to serve the academic needs of our students and a support staff who is here to help provide a safe and caring environment for each individual who is part of our school community.
Our curriculum is data driven and focuses on student achievement. We have high expectations for each student. We expect students to attend school regularly, put forth an effort in each classroom, and respect the rights of each person in our school. Additionally, we believe in "Excellence and Buc Pride" through demonstrating our core values of Respect, Responsibility, and Honesty.
We are looking forward to a very rewarding year at Norwood working with you and your family.
