ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL (AND FUN) INTERSESSION IS IN THE BOOKS!
From February 19-22, Norwood's seventh and eighth graders, and their teachers, took a break from the normal academic schedule to immerse themselves in an exciting variety of unique on- and off-campus learning experiences.
While it may be just one short week out of the year, Intersession is a powerful way to enhance relationships with teachers, deepen friendships with peers, and expand the joyful learning that is central to Norwood’s mission and educational philosophy. From observing open-heart surgery to learning about the intricacies of cake decorating (and many things in between), the Intersession program features a diverse and exciting line-up of experiential learning opportunities, both on- and off-campus, designed to open minds and hearts to possibilities. Year after year, students cite Intersession as one of the highlights of the Norwood middle school experience.
