Safety Drills

Northwood School has a safety committee that meets regularly to review protocols and procedures and to keep emergency plans updated. Each year, New Hampshire schools are required to conduct a number of different types of drills to ensure preparedness for a variety of possible situations.

In the fall, we conducted a number of evacuation/fire drills to ensure that students know how to leave the building during an emergency in an orderly fashion. During winter months, students and staff practice indoor safety drills such as lockdown and shelter in place. This morning, we conducted our first lockdown drill with the support of the Northwood Police Department. Everyone did a great job.

Often parents ask how they can support their children's success during drills. The most important thing to emphasize to kids is to stay calm, remain quiet, and listen to adult directions.

Have a wonderful weekend!

News from the Art Room

Eighth grade created a collaborative art/ music project with Ms. Hashem. Students had to create a playlist in music and reflect upon what songs have impacted their lives and are meaningful to them. In art, students created an album cover to represent a visual image that connected to their playlist. Students had to show the principle of design "emphasis" within their cover. 

Fourth grade created colorful zebras that show the element of texture. 

Artist in Residency

Northwood School will welcome local artist Kim Bernard for a week-long residency in April. You can help us prepare by collecting some items. Please check out the flyer below for more information.
