ROSWELL, Ga. – Northwood Elementary Principal Ritu Ahuja and Assistant Principal Nikol Boyd were "incognito," blending in Oct. 8 with Northwood's fourth grade annual Vocabulary Parade. Drawing inspiration from a book called "Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster," about a chaotic vocab parade, students researched an interesting word and came to school dressed to represent it, parading all around the school for parents and other grade levels.
