Two new events at Norwood, called LOOKAHEADS, will provide current parents in grades PK-6 with a look ahead at their child's Norwood journey. November 5 for parents in grades PK-2; November 12 for parents in grades 3-6.
Have you ever noticed an older Norwood student stumbling to their car at dismissal time, overloaded with a massive structure made of tubes, dowels, and tons of hot glue? Did you wonder what in the world they were holding and how would it ever fit in their family's car? Have you heard about the Big Dig, States Tasting Day, the Greek Agora, the Medieval Banquet, Trading Day, or the Sludge Project and wondered what other cool and exciting projects happen along the Norwood journey? Perhaps you have thought about the "Norwood magic" that transforms your high-energy little one into a poised and confident teenager who possesses the values and traits described in the Portrait of a Norwood School Graduate.
Well, wonder no more! For the first time, Norwood is delighted to host two LOOKAHEAD events for current parents. These gatherings will provide a preview of the exciting things ahead for your child at Norwood. The first LOOKAHEAD on Tuesday, November 5, from 7:45-8:30 a.m., will be led by Mike Risen in the Marriott All-Purpose Room for parents in grades PK-2. The second LOOKAHEAD on Tuesday, November 12, also from 7:45-8:30 a.m., will be led by Michele Claeys in the Middle School Library for parents in grades 3-6. A small group of teachers and students will attend each event to talk about curricular highlights and milestone experiences. If you would like to see some of these activities in action, members of the Admission team will be available for tours after each LOOKAHEAD event.
RSVPs are not necessary. Simply show up and enjoy your look ahead at the Norwood journey!
