Activities Add Fun to Weekends

Northwood weekend activities are a student-wide favorite. Every weekend, students have a variety of outings, activities, and trips available for their amusement. These activities give opportunities to students not occupied with a sport or other commitment to do a fun activity.

Ms. Carrie Donatello takes the lead in organizing weekend activities. She recently explained how the offering of weekend activities is created. “There is an activities committee that throws out ideas for weekends. Then Mrs. Riffle and I look around the area to see if there are any fun events happening that might be of interest,” Donatello said. She says they are mindful of which sports teams are away. “We also take into account how many students are on campus for the weekend and what the weather looks like. I pull a schedule together and pass it along to the duty team leaders to see if anyone on duty has a special idea,” she added. This type of in-depth planning allows Northwood students to enjoy activities like paintball, shopping trips, and apple picking.

Students appreciate weekend activities. Jenny Tran’25 says she enjoyed apple picking and shopping trip and also the almost weekly fire pits on Northwood’s property. She appreciates that there are a lot of options that she can choose from. Luca Campagnani ‘23 said he enjoyed going paintballing with his friends.

Students interested in helping plan weekend activities are encouraged to send a message to Ms. Donatello.
