Monday, September 26th, we will be running this year’s Wellness Day. This will be dedicated as a time for the Northwood High School community to embrace the whole child approach to educating our students to give them tools they can use to deal with stress and the need for balance in their lives. The theme of this year’s day is Communication #talk2me.
The different departments at Northwood have taken on various topics all relating to effective communication. We hope this is allow the students to take some time out of their busy schedules to enjoy some down time with their peers and NHS staff. The schedule will include a 9am start time for all students and a three session schedule for periods 3, 4 and 5. The schedule is included below and it will also be posted on the NHS website. The day will include an extended lunch from 12:30-2:30. Thanks to the generous support of the NHS PTSA and local business community, we will be providing lunch for all students and staff, free of charge. We will also include some activities for the students during this time including staff vs. students softball and basketball games, dodgeball tournament, etc…
Finally, we would like to remind you that this is a day for all NHS students. As such, attendance is expected. Similar to any other school day, all absences will need to be cleared through the attendance office. Only verified absences will be excused (eg. Illness, Funeral, Court, Religious…).
The Northwood staff is excited to use this time to engage with students about how they approach their education.
Irvine Unified School District is excited to support our student’s success by providing all enrolled students with five full copies of Office 365 ProPlus at no cost. Students are able to download this software for home use on a PC, Mac or mobile device thanks to our partnership with Microsoft.
