Is a school-based organization formed to recognize and encourage scholastic achievement, character development, and community service. Northwood Elementary School has established baseline criteria for participation in this club. To receive an invitation, students had to achieve an A average AND be recommended by their teachers as a leader in all aspects of the school day.
This club is designed to have students engage in activities around the school, such as Flagpole, Student Greeters, Be the Voice, and maintaining our cafeteria game and recycling stations. This will allow 5th graders to serve as leaders and role models in the building for our younger students.
