Family Weekend Returns with High Marks from Students

Northwood School hosted its annual Family Weekend tradition where different families come to visit the campus to gain a better understanding of students’ life at school. At the event, held October 8-9, parents attended events including presentations made about the school’s signature academic programs, dance and musical performances, and a College Counseling session. Parents also had the opportunity to attend parent-teacher conferences.

A substantial number of families were able to participate in an interactive session at the Innovation Hub as well as watch a crew scrimmage and go hiking with the Northwood Outing Club. To add to the plentiful activities that happened on the weekend, students were given an extended weekend off from classes during which they were able to go home. 

The Mirror asked students what they thought of Family Weekend, and here’s what they said.
