Principal's Message

Welcome to Norwood Avenue Elementary School!

I am thrilled to be the Principal of Norwood Avenue Elementary School. I enjoy collaborating and learning with my students, parents and families that make up our wonderful school community. I am honored to be part of a faculty and staff that is committed to providing the best possible education for every child. As your principal, I will create a positive school culture that promotes learning and engagement for students and adults.

The entire Norwood Avenue Elementary family is dedicated to assuring instruction aligned to state academic content standards, maintaining continuous improvement in the building, designing instruction for student success, developing partnerships with parents and the community, and nurturing a culture where each individual feels valued.

An important part of our school success is the involvement of the NSA (Norwood Student Association.) The goal of the Association is to enhance and support the school in a number of ways. Kindergarten Roundup, Spring and Fall Book Fairs, the Holiday Boutique and family nights, are a few of the many wonderful events organized and sponsored by our PTA. This year, Stephanie Licata is our President. Along with Executive Board members, all families are invited to participate to make these activities successful and enjoyable for everyone involved.

I am passionate about student learning and helping every child become life-long learners. I believe that school is a “mistake-making,” safe place where all children must have opportunities to learn and grow. I am very passionate about collaborating with students, parents, and teachers to help our students achieve their absolute best.

I look forward to working at Norwood Elementary where “Great Happens Here!” See you on the playground!

Warmly,
Theresa A. DiMichele, Principal
