The 2010-2011 Annual Fund drive is underway. We thank you for your generous gifts and ask everyone in the Northwood family to participate in this important fundraiser.

The Annual Fund supports all aspects of a Northwood education by making up the difference between what tuition covers and the true costs of running Northwood School. As a result, your gift sustains the dynamic and unique learning environment of our school.

Ski coach Marcy Fagan reports that things are going very well at the pre-season training camp in Colorado: "The first four days we trained under sunny skies at Loveland Ski Area then we moved to Copper Mountain where it has been snowing for four days straight – lots of powder skiing! The kids are having fun... cooking their own dinners... training hard... and getting their school work done during the study-halls."
