Early Release of Students (Weather Conditions)

posted Mar 16, 2018, 6:11 AM by Tammie Clinger

NW Logo
On certain days, based upon weather and road conditions throughout the district, the Northwestern School District may use an "early release."  During an early release, the middle and high school will dismiss at approximately 2:00, instead of the normal 2:20.  This is done in order to keep the busses on time for elementary dismissal. 

We do not use the one call system, because, if the weather is bad, an early release will most likely not affect the elementary drop off times.  In other words, we do an early release to keep the elementary drop offs as close to on-time as possible, and to allow our drivers a little more time in order to keep all of our students and staff safe.

Transition to Latin Honor System

posted Feb 13, 2018, 12:37 PM by Tammie Clinger   [ updated Feb 13, 2018, 12:43 PM ]

In an effort to encourage and recognize the academic accomplishments of our high school students, the Northwestern School District Board of Directors approved the transition to the Latin Honor System in November.  The plan is to have the new system fully functional by the year 2019-2020.  High school parents will receive a postcard in the next couple days regarding the change.  We hope you find the presentation helpful.  As always, if you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Christensen or Mrs. Herath at the High School office at 814-756-9400x1234.

Full STEAM Ahead at Northwestern Elementary!

GREAT things happen when grade levels work together on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math)!

Three fourth graders from Mrs. Frazier's/Mrs. Verga's classroom came to work with Mrs. Porter's first graders on STEAM projects on Wednesday, Feb. 7.  The fourth graders introduced themselves and the first graders were split into two teams to work on their STEAM projects.  Audrina worked with the Engineering and Art parts of STEAM as she helped the students to create bags with given materials that would be able to hold several packs of crayons.  Nicole worked with the Technology and Math parts of STEAM as she showed the students how to use Scratch to play her Math games and to create their own games.  Brooke, another fourth grader, was available as an assistant to both groups.  The first graders had a GREAT time working with the fourth graders on their STEAM projects and are hoping to be able to do this more often!
