Hello Northwood Families, 

I look forward to working with each of you to help your child achieve both academic and social success. I believe all children can achieve high levels of success and that they perform best when they feel safe and confident. To help do this, I strive to support our students not only academically, but also to provide them with a supportive and loving environment. 

I truly believe that close partnerships between families and school staff makes our school a positive place for our students to learn and grow and I invite each of you to help build a strong partnership with us to support your child. There are many ways for parents to be active members of the school such as: being a part of our School Site Council, PTA, volunteering during school events, and attending our school and community events.  
At Northwood we recognize the individuality and importance of each and every student. We are here to nurture our students through challenging academics, positive social interactions, and building one's self-character and confidence. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Intelligence plus character—that is the true goal of education,” and that is one of the goals that we have here at Northwood. We want our students to not only be prepared as they continue to pursue their education, but also to be well-rounded citizens in our ever-changing world. 

With Warmest Regards,

Mrs. Maricela Krickovic
Northwood Elementary School
