BOX TOPS = Free Money for Our School!

BOX TOPS are an easy way for our school to earn FREE MONEY! Have your child cut out unexpired BOX TOPS and tape or glue them to the collection sheet that will be collected on the last Friday of each month. You can also put them in a zip top baggie and attach it to the collection sheet.

Primary and upper grade class winners will be announced at the beginning of the next month. Our school will submit all box tops twice a year, on November 1st and March 1st so we have only 6 months to see how much we can raise for the 2016-2017 school year. If you have further questions, email Melissa at nwboxtop@gmail.com.

Traffic Safety

crossing guard

Our parking lot can accommodate our staff but our school was designed for a walking community. With many parents driving, we are experiencing excessive traffic and delayed pick up for kids while fostering an atmosphere that could become dangerousfor our community. After observing our traffic patterns, I would like for you to consider one or more of the following options in order to provide a safer environment for our Northwood students, staff and parents:


  • Walk - It's healthy, environmentally friendly, and a great way to bond with others.

​ Parents can wait in one of three areas:

  1. ​In front of the school
  2. Next to the park (must stay on grass - the blacktop is for instructional use)
  3. Next to entrance off Lewis (please stay near wall)
  • Park on the street OR in our our parking lot (pick up only) - Get out and walk your child to your car. This may cost a few extra minutes, but it will reduce the traffic back up and ensure your child is safely boarded inyour vehicle.
  • Park Behind the School - There is a long stretch of sidewalk. If you drive in off of Trabuco, left on Lewis and then on Lindberg, you can park along the long stretch behind our school. Agree on a meeting place and have your child scan and look for your car behind our school - this is a great practice for upper grade students
  • Please be respectful to our neighbors and do not block their driveway.

Please note that there is no supervision for students and students must be picked up within 10 minutes of dismissal.
