Norwood City School District Family,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. Beginnings are a wonderful opportunity! The beginning of the school year prompts fond memories I have of my educational experiences in Norwood City Schools as a student, teacher and principal. It is my great treasure to have been guided by supportive parents, teachers and a neighborhood community. Norwood City School District is a great place to be educated.
This school year we have added a STEM teacher for grades 3-6. We are excited to bring high interest learning to our learners that will spark their curiosity. Our new and highly trained School Resource Officer will be visiting classrooms, guest speaking and providing safety lessons for all. Currently Sharpsburg Primary is under re-construction with Sharpsburg Elementary re-construction to begin mid-year. Norwood Middle School re-construction is expected to be complete by August 2019. We have so very much to celebrate.
Tradition in Norwood means we provide caring adults, high quality learning environment, strong curriculum opportunities, athletic and fine arts opportunities all offered in beautiful neighborhood schools. This unique combination of extraordinary teaching and faculty mixed with supportive parents and community make Norwood a great place. All of these things are treasured in Norwood City Schools. We hold high our dedication to provide our students a dream builder staff resulting in difference maker students for our world. In Norwood City School District learning is personalized and success is ensured.
We believe in our mission statement. The Norwood City School District Board of Education, district leadership and faculty promise to work toward our mission statement each day of instruction.
Mission Statement: The Norwood City Schools, within a safe, healthful environment shall meet the educational potential of all students in order that students are academically prepared to successfully:
