Northwood Yearbook Wants Your Photos

We've had some great times together at Northwood Elementary. Do you have photos from the first day of school, Welcome Back Taco and Movie Night, the Reflections Art Contest, Red Ribbon Week (Walk to School, Crazy Hair Day), the Harvest Cup, Halloween Spirit Day, or Family Lunch? If so, please send them in to Make sure you indicate which event belongs to each photo. Thank you!

Astounding Inventions

Let your imaginations run wild. Create an invention that will make "someone's" life easier. Everyone can be an inventor, think like an inventor! Children are great problem solvers who look at old problems in new ways. For many years Northwood students have participated in this exciting school program. Participation is optional. Projects are due by Monday, December 5th.

Northwood's Astounding Inventions Convention will be held the week of Monday, December 5th through Friday, December 9th. Winners will be announced December 12th and will have the opportunity to enter the district's contest which will be held on Saturday, January 28th, 2017 at Irvine Valley College.

Astronomy Night

Join us for an evening under the stars. Bring the whole family!

The Northwood PTA is proud to present a free night of astronomical fun for our students and their families! Members of the Orange County Astronomers will set up their huge telescopes on our playground's blacktop on Thursday, December 8th from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. You will be able to see the Moon and Venus, as well as more distant objects like the Great Orion Nebula, the Christmas Tree Cluster, the "E.T." Cluster and some far away galaxies. The OCA members love talking about the stars and would be happy to answer your questions.

Snacks and glow necklaces will be available for purchase.
