Students Get Ready for Winter Schedule

As the trimester comes to an end, so too does the fall schedule. Beginning after Thanksgiving break, Northwood School will be on the winter schedule: classes go from 12:30 until 6:15 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. On Mondays, classes start at 9:00 am and last until 3:45 pm, with flex going until 4:15. Friday is the “squish day” schedule, with each class shortened by five minutes and no flex.

Winter Schedule

Winter Schedule begins on Tuesday, November 27, the beginning of the second trimester.

Co-curricular activities, including athletics, don’t meet on Mondays and take place in the morning Tuesday through Thursday; Friday co-curricular activities happen after lunch and school meeting.

Senior Kevin Quinn describes Winter schedule as being “game time,” when the school community is most-focused on both their extracurricular activities and schoolwork. This view is shared by others who feel that the schedule is beneficial. Senior Tommy Boulais said, “I appreciate the extra time [winter schedule] gives me to sleep.”

Some winter sports athletes find that they lose free time with the change to the winter schedule. Senior ski racer Sarah Bennett said, “We have no free time in the winter to relax. Class ends at 6:15 pm, then we have dinner, and then we work out from 6:30 – 7:30 pm, which is right before study hall starts. It’s a grind.”

The first two weeks of the new schedule often require some adjustment to the later classes.
