Good Evening Gladiator Families. This is your principal, Ms. Charley-Greene, calling with updates and reminders for the week of Jan 14. A schedule of this week’s athletic events is attached to the email version of this message.

Attention Parents - our next PTSA meeting will be held on Jan. 15 from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., in the media center. Parents will learn about new safety drills that will take place in the early part of the year. Please join us!

Save the date: February 17, is the PTSA’ s Silent Auction at Mi Rancho @ 6:00 pm. Proceeds go to fund AfterProm.

On Saturday, Jan. 19, the Wellness Center, in partnership with Casa de Maryland, will be hosting an employment workshop from 9 am to noon. The workshop will take place in the Northwood High School Wellness Center (Room F115). If interested, please call Erica Garcia at 202-420-1598 to sign up.

Parents, guardians, students and drivers: please be reminded that classes begin at 7:45 am. Students who arrive late disrupt class and miss out on vital instruction.

Students should be reminded that all head covering that is not classified as religious or medicinal shouldn’t be worn during the school day.

Families: It is not too late to submit free and reduced lunch forms. Please submit the form online or bring the form to Ms. Jasper in the main office.

Winter weather means school closings and delays. Information about weather-related school operations is available on local radio and television stations as well as the MCPS website. You may also get the latest information by following me on Twitter @northwoodprin. Depending on conditions, Northwood staff will not be available to answer weather-related calls to the school. That’s it for this week's updates and reminders. Have a great week!
