November at Woodbrook

Thank you!

Hooray for our Students!

We celebrated our students' wonderful Woodbrook behavior at our first Positive Behavior Supports in Schools (PBSIS) Beaver Buck assembly in November! Children gathered outside together to cheer each other, listen to peers entertain them on the keyboard and win prizes for being responsible, respectful, trustworthy and kind citizens of Woodbrook!

You should be proud of your children! We are!

Thank You Woodbrook Class Parents & PTO!

Our annual Halloween Parade was a wonderful success! It was truly heartwarming to see so many parents at our traditional parade. The children were dressed in fun, child friendly, positive costumes and everyone enjoyed seeing their friends dressed up for the parade!

Thank you to all of the PTO Class Parents for organizing the parties which were enjoyed by all! We are so appreciative of all of your support.

The children are enjoying shopping at the book fair! Thanks to all of the PTO parents for helping make it a great success!

A tremendous shout out to our Math Club coaches & coordinators. Our first week was bumpy and our second week was much improved. Please, if your child attends math club, specifically in grade 4, do volunteer to coach. We are still short some coaches.

The Holiday Boutique will be here providing children with the opportunity to shop for gifts for their families. Please take advantage of this fun opportunity by helping your child with shopping and budgeting skills.

Thank you to the entire Woodbrook Staff!

As always, we are thankful to all of the teachers and staff members who make Woodbrook the beautiful school that it is!

In honor of American Education Week, this year, instead of our typical tradition of inviting all parents into visit the classrooms, we will be sharing what your children love about their classrooms with you.

Be on the look out for some special messages from your children next week!

How can you help?


  • Vaccines are now readily available for all children ages 5 and up.

  • Send children in with clean CHILD SIZED masks daily. (Adult masks are not appropriate and do not fit.)


  • Keep sneezing and coughing children home.
  • If you are questioning if your child is possibly ill, STAY HOME
  • As per the district protocol, if a member of your household is symptomatic, all Edison students must stay home until that household member tests negative.
  • These absences will be excused
  • A doctor's note to return to school due to allergies/strep if a child was symptomatic is not sufficient. A negative COVID test must accompany the doctor's note.
  • Do NOT give your children cough medicine and fever reducers and send your child to school. We are trying to keep everyone healthy.


  • NO HOME TESTS are acceptable.
  • If you take a rapid test, please also take a PCR test which is much more reliable.
  • You must remain home while awaiting results of your PCR tests


  • Only students who the school requires to stay home are permitted to listen via a classroom link. It is not available for everyone.
  • This is not hybrid. There is no interaction between the students and teacher.
  • The camera will only stay on during whole class instruction.
