2021 Intersession Course Catalog has been released!

Check out the amazing selection of courses available to seventh and eighth graders during this year's Intersession, February 16-29, 2021.
Intersession is a four-day period early in the second semester during which seventh and eighth grade students take a break from regular academics to participate in a variety of one- and two-day 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.

While this year's Intersession poses numerous challenges due to the pandemic, Norwood' seventh and eighth grade faculty members were determined to create a fun, engaging, and rewarding experience for all. The 2021 program includes a fantastic variety of on-campus and virtual classes, from culinary experiences, music immersion, artistic endeavors, and so much more!
