Thank you for another successful Warrior Family Conference Night.

We had another extremely successful Warrior Family Conference Night last week. Nearly half of our families came to visit with teachers about student successes and areas for growth. Partnering with families is one of our core values at Northwest and we are grateful for the opportunity to work together.

We also want to thank a local church group, Missio Dei, for providing our teachers dinner before conferences started. They felt loved and energized for the evening.

School Community Council

Trauma Informed Schools

One outcome of our Northwest feeder school meeting was a joint professional development with educators from Meadowlark, Escalante, Newman and Northwest. We learned about ways to create trauma sensitive schools in which students are supported to build resilience and exceed expectations related to predicted outcomes. Thanks to all who participated and to Dr. Dorn from the U for facilitating our learning.Trauma

School Safety Letter from the Superintendent

Everything is Better with a Team!

Administrators in the Rosepark neighborhood schools are meeting monthly to better serve our shared community. We are discussing ways to support students to create safe and strong learning environment. We've developed a common attendance initiative. (Find our NOW for LATER signs around the community!) And we are sharing ways to address behavior challenges with restorative justice practices to minimize our contribution to the nation's school to prison pipeline crisis.

There is nothing more impressive or inspiring than a group of educators daring to make their schools better for marginalized communities.

Thanks team!


Thank You Nick

Nick Faudoa has served SLCSD for 20 years. The last 9 have been at Northwest Middle School. Visitors to our building assume it is only a few years old because of how beautiful Nick and his staff keep it. Nick works well with teachers to create classroom environments for learning. He accommodates the many rentals throughout the year when community members hold events here. Nick mentors students who need to provide service to our school through restorative discipline. He keeps a positive attitude while working with the nearly 1000 students, faculty and staff of NWMS.

Thank you Nick!! You're someone we all look up to!!
