Dear Parents / Guardians,8/10/2012
On behalf of the Norwood View Elementary staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2012-2013 school year. We are thrilled that you have entrusted your child's education to us. Be assured that we are dedicated to providing an educational experience of the highest quality for every student.
The 2011-2012 school year proved to be a successful one. According to the most recent data released by the state, Norwood View is rated Effective on the state report card and met 9 out of 10 state indicators. Most impressively, the View attained Adequate Yearly Progress, further proof that all students are having their academic needs met or surpassed.
The faculty and staff are busy preparing the school and classrooms for you and your children. Teachers have been working diligently this summer to ensure that all students reach their fullest academic potential. Most have received extensive training and professional development.
As your new principal, I look forward to working collaboratively with staff, students, parents and the Norwood community to continue the proud tradition established at Norwood View. I invite you to become an active participant in your child's education by ensuring that he/she comes to school every day, prepared to learn. Please join me in this endeavor, as together we build on our past successes and embrace the future. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please call the office and we will be happy to assist you.
Lin Yates, Principal
