January Recap:
Spelling Bee 2015!

What's all the buzz about? Northwoods held its annual Spelling Bee on January 15th. We are so proud of all of our Spelling Bee contestants. They all worked very hard and did such a great job! 
School Assembly
Our students welcomed Sparky & Rhonda Rucker presenting Heroes & Hard Times: American History through Song and Story. This assembly included songs and stories relating to slavery, the Underground Railroad, the Civil War, the westward migration, the birth of the blues, and the civil rights movement. Thank you to Sparky and Rhonda for a great learning experience!
Coming Up: 
February Book Drive
The 2nd annual WAKE Up and Read book drive is here! WAKE Up and Read hopes to collect 100,000 books in the month of February. These books will be shared with children at nine schools, as well as community centers and child care facilities across Wake County. Let's help build stronger students and a stronger community.

Books can be dropped off during school hours in the front lobby at Northwoods all month long. Thank you!
