    Northwest Parents,

         We want to thank all of you that supported the Northwest Harvest Literacy Festival. It was an evening filled with spooky stories, parent training sessions, and lots of fun! The student character book costumes were so creative!  Thank you STAFF and PTA for making it a success!  

    We said goodbye to Carol Warner, DMT, after 38 years of service to Northwest Elementary.  We wish her well in her next life adventure!  We welcome Annie Culbertson as our new DMT.


    School Wide Behavior Incentive: We are excited to experience our third School Wide behavior incentive (PBS: Positive Behavior Supports) for all those students making the right choices every day.  We will be having popcorn on Friday, Nov. 4th for students that have earned an 80% or above for the month of October.  Way to go students! The Northwest Staff is so proud of the students earning at least an 80% daily, every day. 


    As you know safety is a priority of ours.  Please adhere to the morning drop off times.  NO CHILDREN are to be on campus before 8:05 unless they are enrolled in the YMCA program.  There is no drop-off in the bus circle except for YMCA and that is only before 8:05 am.  Thank you for assisting us with this.


    Attendance:   We had 335 students with Perfect attendance for October!  Let’s go for 400 out of 615 for November!   Thank you for having your children at school every day on time!  YOU ROCK!!

    The Northwest Elementary School Community is committed to 100% student progress 100% of the time” We want all students to be successful and making progress.  Please make sure you are communicating and requesting a conference with your child’s teacher so you know what we are doing to ensure your child’s success, and how you can assist at home.


    From our Northwest Family to yours, we wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving!

    Mrs. Brainard
