Transition Activities for Grades PreK-13

Parents/guardians and school personnel are key partners in every child’s education; therefore, Norwood Public Schools seeks to establish strong and on-going communications between family and school.  All our school personnel always welcome and encourage parental engagement and participation in the education of their child (children).

Principals use newsletters, school websites, PTA councils, School Councils, Connect ED communications, and informational packets to communicate essential information and encourage involvement.  Many student and family activities focus on helping students through various transitions throughout their school years. 

Norwood Public Schools has been awarded a Coordinated Family and Community Engagement (CFCE) grant that primarily serves Norwood families with preschool and kindergarten children.  The purpose of this grant is to provide coordination of services for families, including support for families in making school transitions, building resilience in coping with transitions, and connecting the parent community through literacy and parenting workshops.

The CFCE Council communicates the availability of support with the preschool providers through council meetings, emails, resource guides, and newsletters.  This communication becomes a vital link to the Norwood Public Schools as families enter the Norwood Public Schools and access services.
