Message from the Principal:

We would like to thank all the parents, students, and staff that participated in the October P.T.O. events.Hat Day and the Back To School Dance were a great success and we look forward to future events.

Thank you, SWPBIS team for kicking off our first FAB Friday for the school year on October 30th.We had 219 student participants!

New experiences at Northwestern STEM Middle School:

The Second Quarter of the Semester starts Monday, November 9th, please expect to see report cards by Friday, November 20th. We will be making several schedule changes based on parent, student, and staff input:

  • The first change will affect the Advisory class. We will be ending Advisory 2 minutes earlier and adding 2 minutes to the passing time after the lunch periods. This change is an effort to increase the number of students who are on time to class after lunch.
  • Our second change will affect students being moved into and out of Reading and Math intervention classes in order to make sure students who meet the criteria for intervention support are being served.

Our Title-1 Parent Night will be held on Thursday, November 17th from 5:45 p.m.-7:15 p.m..Please join us in our effort to support student success and achievement through character building, Reading and Math interventions, and increasing family engagement. An invitation and R.S.V.P. form will be sent home with your student. Please call 965-9609 if you have any questions.


If you would like to visit a classroom, please contact the main office 965-9607 and/or the teacher so we can accommodate your needs. We request a 24 hour notice to ensure a smooth observation process.

CHANGE OF INFORMATION: Please make sure your student(s) contact information is correct and current. It is very important that this information is kept current at all times. Please make sure the contact names are correct as we will NOT release any student to anyone who is not on the master list. Please call or stop by the school office.

PARENT CONNECT: Is a web portal for parents to access information about their students. Lunch information, grades and news from school will be available with a simple login and password. Contact the school secretary to sign up today.

MEDICATION: All prescribed medications must have a written prescription form from the physician accompanying any medications given out to the students. Please make sure all prescriptions are clearly labeled, including inhalers. Inhalers must have a prescription on the box, or labeled on the inhaler without a box. This ensures us that we are administering the correct medications to your students. Thank you for your cooperation.
