Principal's Message

Welcome to Northwood Elementary School!

It is the mission of Northwood Elementary School, in cooperation with parents and community, to encourage, stimulate and develop student learning.


On behalf of the entire staff at Northwoood Elementary and the Sidney City School District, I would like to welcome you and your children to another exciting and enriching year. Our building is the home to over 500 students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. 


Northwood's excellent teaching staff and support staff want to ensure that every child is safe and has every opportunity to be successful academically. Our goal is to support and encourage each child in achieving his/her optimum potential academically and instilling values of hard work, self worth, curiosity of knowledge, and a love of learning.


Being actively involved in your child's education in developing a strong partnership between home and school is critical. Our collaboration will ensure a positive educational experience for everyone. Please discuss with your child things they are doing in school, have your child(ren) read to you, and provide support and encouragement with homework.


Not only is our staff top notch, we encourage you to be active in our PTO which meets on the 1st Thursday of the month at 6:30pm (subject to change). This organization not only supports our mission, but their efforts also provide many school activities and support our programs. We are a school where everyone shares in the responsibility for the success of every one of our students.

Northwood Elementary Principal
