Yesterday our swim team hosted the first swim invitational at Carnes Crossroads, kicking off the 2018 swim season! Our swimmers did a great job and we are excited to see how they compete! Great job Chargers!
We are excited to see what this new year will hold and what God will do at Northwood Academy for the 2018-2019 school year!

MARCH MISSIONS MONTH
Our Pre-School students participated in their very own Walk for Water! They walked with their buckets, collected some polluted water, then took it back to the filtration system that Water Missions set up and watched as it was made into clean, drinking water! What an amazing experience for the young world-changers!
The daffodils in our 'Joe Engel Memorial Garden' are beginning to bloom! Some of the Senior class took some time out of their day to visit and admire the beautiful flowers that honor the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust.
SEE YOU AT THE POLE
What an amazing morning gathering, as one campus—to pray over our communities and leaders, worship with one another, and reflect on how blessed we all are to live in a country as great as this one.
