Dear Northwood PTA Families,
I would like to start by saying thank you for welcoming me as the 2016‐17 PTA President! I look forward to continuing our PTA mission and working with you again this year. Northwood PTA has worked to enhance the technology in our classrooms. With the great efforts of our Northwood families, we were able to purchase new iPads with cases, Chromebooks with Google licenses, classroom microphones, Elmos, and Mimeos. We also donated time, money, and gifts to some causes and families. Finally, we brought new and exciting educational and participatory programs and events to the school last year. We appreciate all that each of you do for our school and students. None of this would be possible without our Northwood families!
I am looking forward to my first year in the role of PTA President and the challenges it brings to me personally and to our Executive Board. We have many fun and educational events planned at Northwood this year. Our one major fundraiser, Fun Run, is critical to our success as a PTA at Northwood. This year’s Fun Run will be held October 7th and will help pay for many of the programs and educational items at our school. All contributions to the students’ Fun Run help us maintain the programs and all of events that we take pride in here at Northwood. We have events throughout the year that are also in need of volunteers, as well as leadership roles. Our PTA works with our new families and families who want to be involved. Please join us at our meetings and groups to learn more and get as involved as you are able.
Thank you to everyone who volunteers their time at our school! We are all here to continue to grow and support Northwood Elementary’s high level of academic success. Our students love to see us at school and at events and learn about what we accomplish with our efforts and involvement.

I look forward to working with all of our new parents and volunteers and seeing our students and families at Northwood!
Lynn Johnson, 2016‐17 Northwood PTA President
