Good evening Mariner Families,

My name is Vincent Taylor and here is your Wednesday Night Top 5 Things to know  about upcoming school events.

  1. BIG news everyone! We are less than one week away  from our SOS (Support Our Students) fundraiser! This coming Monday we will hold a Pep Rally in the gym to get everyone excited about SOS. Students will see some silly skits, a relay race, the Northwood Cheerleaders and hear a brief overview of this year’s fundraising event. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for SMART board TVs in every classroom. To learn more about SOS check out our social media pages and our school website. (Ask teachers to add this announcement to their newsletters)
