Becky Rush, Foreign Language Teacher Of The Year

Northwood Becky_Rush.jpg

The Northwood School District received word late this summer that Foreign Language teacher, Rebecca Rush, has received the honor of New Hampshire’s Foreign Language Teacher of the Year for the 2013-14 school year. Ms. Rush has been employed at the school since the fall of 2007. She currently instructs students in grades 1-8. 


In the elementary grades, she team teaches with both the music teacher, Ms. Susan Gokey, and the school’s Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Melissa Moore, providing students with a richer curriculum in all three areas. For grades 5 and 6, she allows the students an opportunity during a Related Arts class that lasts half a year, to choose either French or Spanish to study, with a focus on the countries and culture of those two languages. Finally, in 7th and 8th grade, Ms. Rush teaches a high school level Spanish I program to students who have met perquisite guidelines, including high marks in previous reading/language arts classes, NWEA and NECAP scores, and recommendations from their teachers.  


In addition, Ms. Rush works tirelessly as a drama advisor, leading large groups of students in 3-4 dramatic productions each year at the school.


The Northwood School is excited to have Ms. Rush a part of their learning environment and hopes that she will continue to touch the lives of students both in the classroom and on the stage for many years to come!




American Boots


Senator Jeanne Shaheen has made it clear she will vote in favor of an American War against Syria. Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter has indicated she will vote against taking America to war. So we know where they stand.


Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster (Concord office 226-1002) and Senator Kelly Ayotte (Manchester office 622-7979) have not indicated whether they will support President Obama’s war in Syria.


This could be the most important vote of their careers, especially if it ends up igniting a widespread war in the Middle East, a war that ends up with American boots and bodies on the ground yet again. The House and Senate may vote at any time.

Northwood Recreation Department


The Northwood Recreation Department is looking to expand the programs offered to older adults.  We would love to add new programs for adults, especially older adults, to enjoy but we want to hear from you.  Please tell us if there is a program, trip, sport, or class that you would like to see the Recreation Department offer. 


The Northwood Recreation Commission is seeking an individual who is committed to attending commission meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. This individual should also be willing to volunteer to assist during Recreation Events. The Commission would also like interested individuals to be connected to the older adult population in some way.
