8th Grade Chipwich Fundraiser
Our chipwich fundraiser has been such a success that we are going to sell them e-v-e-r-y Friday! Purchase a yummy treat for your 8th grader AND support a great cause at the same time.
Our 8th grade Washington, DC field trip coordinators will be selling "The Chocolate Shoppe" chipwiches to 8th graders during lunch on Fri, October 6. Pre-purchase a chipwich for your 8th grader now so they don't have to worry about waiting in line or bringing cash to school! Deadline to order is Thurs, October 5 @ midnight.
Profits from this fundraiser will go towards off-setting student costs for the Washington, DC field trip. Any remaining chipwiches that have not been pre-purchased will be sold on the day of the event for $3/ea cash. Please note that chipwich fillings vary (chocolate or vanilla) based on availability from The Chocolate Shoppe on the day of the event.

Purchase Backup ID's
Every student at Northwood is issued one ID and lanyard at no charge at the beginning of the school year. BUT life happens, and ID's are often lost or left at home! Save yourself any last minute panic by purchasing your student a backup ID (or two or three). Encourage your student to hang backups in their locker or zip them into a special pocket on their bookbag.
Use the MySchoolBucks links below to order additional ID supplies for your student. If purchased before 1:30 pm, our Media Center will issue items directly to your student the same day. Items purchased after 1:30 pm will be issued the following school day.

Is Your Address Up-To-Date?
As we are preparing for the next school year's registration, it is most important that we have your correct address information on file. This determines the school your student will attend. Also, keep in mind that the final report cards are mailed at the end of the school year. All address changes require proper documentation (two proofs of residency) to be presented to the school.
If you have moved or will be moving, please email Mitzi Bessent, our Registrar, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 864-355-7013.
