Dear Norwood Middle School Students and Families,

I hope this letter finds you all in good health and high spirits. My name is Mr. Joe Westendorf and I am thrilled to introduce myself as the new Principal of Norwood Middle School! It is with great excitement and anticipation that I join this wonderful school community.
