Northwood 6th Graders Move to Edgemont Next Year
School Board Approves Plan to Transition Northwood 6th Graders to Edgemont for the 2017-2018 School Year

At their regular meeting on February 27, the Puyallup School District Board of Directors unanimously approved the temporary transition of our Northwood sixth graders next year to the Edgemont Junior High School campus. In addition to the parent meeting held earlier this year, ongoing meetings with staff at Northwood, Mt. View and Edgemont, and a recent trip to Ballou (as we observed the Zeiger 6th graders on the Ballou campus) had occured to begin the planning process.

Our next steps include conducting several meetings with our lead team as we continue to plan for the temporary transition next year, and engaging in ongoing communication with our parents and community.

We look forward to collaborating with you in making the transition smoothly for our students’ best interest
