Norwood Avenue Elementary School
Welcome to Norwood Avenue Elementary School! I am pleased to welcome you to a truly wonderful place. Here at Norwood, students learn, play, sing, think, create, and grow on a daily basis. We are committed to the whole child and we are so proud of how our students perform. Please contact me with any questions or concerns any time.

What’s New In Our School District?
The world of education is always changing. Each year, we add new technologies, curriculum, and programs to enhance our students’ learning experience.
An important initiative in the 2021-22 school year is the implementation of a STEM/Makerspace program. Students are collaborating together to create small systems, while using coding skills. Activities include piper computers, straw structures, circuits, and creating a working lighthouse or jukebox using circuitry. In primary grades, students are using magformers, keva planks, and mPie circuitry. We are excited to finally be able to use our dedicated lab space for STEM instruction!
We continue to integrate new technologies into the educational process. Norwood is now equipped with 1:1 computing devices for every student, and learning can be individualized more than ever before. Over the next year, we are excited to upgrade all of our existing Smartboards to a new flat panel technology.
We are so proud of our students and staff, for their hard work, resilience, and teamwork. In a year when we face so many challenges, both local and global, our community has come together brilliantly.
Please continue to explore our website, as well as individual teacher google classrooms. We are excited to share all the amazing things we are doing with you!
