THANK YOU HAWKS FAMILIES!

Teacher Appreciation was this week (May 3-7) and we want to thank our families/students who took time out of their day to thank a teacher verbally or with a gift. Being a teacher takes patience, compassion, and dedication and we can say without a doubt that our teachers here at Northwest are all of those and more!

Find our staff email address here, I'm sure they'd appreciate a thank you/recognition email.
