Seventh and Eighth Graders Prepare for Intersession 2020

Intersession is a fantastic opportunity for seventh and eighth graders—and their teachers—to take a break from the usual academic schedule and enjoy four days of learning and exploring, without grades or tests.
This year's Intersession will take place February 18-21, 2020. The course catalog has been distributed and students are busy selecting their activities.

Year after year, students cite Intersession as one of the highlights of the Norwood middle school experience. 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.
