elementary principal

Welcome to Northwood Elementary School!
We are off to another exciting school year! 

My name is Cydnee Strand. I am in my second year as the Elementary Principal and tenth year overall here at Northwood!  I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Mayville State University in 2008. I am currently pursuing my  Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of North Dakota. I will complete this program in the spring of 2018.

I began my career teaching third grade and Character Education classes to all K-6 classrooms. I became the full-time third grade teacher the following year and remained there for another seven years before becoming the Elementary Principal for the 2016-2017 school year. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, review the Elementary Handbook, read newsletters, and review your child's binder each night. 

I am looking forward to a great school year, and with your partnership, we can work together to ensure a successful school year for your child!

Go Thunder!
