πŸ“Northwood Courtyard


🚴 Join the Northwood community for Walk + Bike to School Day! We encourage students to walk or bike to school with their families. 

The Northwood Courtyard is open on Walk + Bike to School Day for breakfast snacks, drinks, and coffee (for the grown-ups!). No matter how students arrive at school, they will all receive a sticker and participate in the activities!

Families can arrive to Northwood as early as 8:45 AM. 


βœ”οΈ - Where can I park my bike during the day? There are bike racks outside both entrances to the school. We recommend bringing a bike lock, as the school cannot be responsible for stolen bicycles.

βœ”οΈ - Can’t walk or bike to school that day? Bus riders and carpoolers are also making a good choice because they are reducing emissions by taking the bus rather than driving individually. 


For more information, please contact president@northwoodowlspta.org

Girls on the Run inspires life-changing transformations in girls when they need it most, and this is in large part thanks to our amazing coaches. Coaches are provided with all the training and supplies necessary, so prior experience is not required!
