Vision Statement:

          Northwestern STEM will be highly regarded for its academic excellence and serve as the school of choice for middle school in the greater Battle Creek community.

Message from the Principal:

We have started second semester and with a new start students will have some new classes and some schedule changes. We are also implementing every Friday a grade level assembly in order for us to celebrate student success weekly and provide educational information as well as a chance for guest speakers to address students about our college going culture.

We are excited to have a new Math teacher, Ms. Cindy Smith who will be doing our Math Support Lab class for students who have been identified by their NWEA-MAP scores as well as teacher recommendation for additional Math support. Ms. Smith will be working with 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.

Our PTO Valentines’ Dance is Friday February 13th from 6 to 8 PM in Northwestern’s cafeteria. Entrance is $1 and all food and beverages are $1: all money raised will support future activities and the 8th grade class trip.


Northwestern’s PTO meets every 2nd Wednesday of the Month (February 11th)

PTO representatives are encouraged to meet with the Student Council which meets on the 4th Wednesday of the Month (February 25th). Both meetings are at 3:00PM at Northwestern.

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.
