A Message from the Principal

Dear Woodland Families,

We are officially one week from Summer Break! This week we celebrated one of our favorite activities, Field Day! It was so much fun seeing the students traversing the inflatable obstacle course, making tie-dye shirts for next year, and getting some relief from the heat with water games. Thank you to all of the parent volunteers that made this day so much fun and very successful!

We also had the opportunity to provide TK/Kindergarten screening for our incoming Wildcat cubs. It was great to meet our newest students and the screening will allow us to balance classrooms for the fall.

The Kindergarten classes were excited to perform in their very first concert as Wildcats on Wednesday evening, May 31st. They did an amazing job!

Our 5th graders are looking forward to their last week before transitioning to Avondale Middle School. They started their end of year activities on a field trip to Urban Air Trampoline Park and visited AMS this past Wednesday. On Friday, June 9th, we will be having a clap out as they exit Woodland one last time.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs. Katalin Rosinski

5th Grade Clap Out

We are excited to be able to host our 5th Grade Clap Out as our kids bridge to the middle school! The Clap Out will be on Friday, June 9th. Participants should arrive by 10:15am. We would like to start at 10:30am.

There are some changes that we need to implement in order to make this happen.

  • Weather permitting, we will be doing this outside on our walking path. Our TK-4th graders will be lined up along the path to cheer our 5th graders on while they walk.
  • Family members will need to park in the front and walk around to the playground gate in the back. Ms. Ivy will check you in at a table.
  • The Clap Out will last about 10 minutes. You may stay to take a few pictures with friends or by our Woodland sign.
  • We will need families to leave the playground and parking lot by 11:15am to avoid dismissal lines that may block you in. Families may choose to take their 5th grader home at this time (or out for ice cream!) by signing them out with Ms. Ivy at the playground gate.

We look forward to celebrating with you!

Woodland Yearbooks

Woodland yearbooks will go home with students on Monday, June 5th. The first opportunity to purchase a yearbook if you weren't able to do so will be Tuesday morning, June 6th at 8:30am. If you are dropping off your child, please park your car and come in. These yearbooks will be sold on a first come, first serve basis for $20 cash (exact change only!). Please DO NOT call the office, we cannot hold a yearbook for anyone.

Summer Tutoring

If you are interested in getting your child tutored over the summer, please click on the link below and you will find the Woodland staff that offer their services.

Woodland Summer Tutor List 2023

Please Look For Missing Library Books at Home!

Please look under your bed, in your closets and through your book shelves at home to see if you have any school library books and turn them in ASAP.

All library books are due back to school ASAP. Mrs. Kowalski has been sending home book fine notices and all book fines need to be paid by Friday, June 2nd. You can pay the fines by cash or check made out to Avondale School District.

Medication at School

If your child has medication here at school, PLEASE PLAN TO PICK IT UP FROM THE OFFICE BEFORE THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL ON FRIDAY, JUNE 9TH. We cannot send medication home with students. Any medication remaining in the office after June 12th will be discarded. When you pick up your student's medication, we will give you a new "Permission Form for Prescribed Medication" for next year. This form needs to be filled out annually and can be brought to Woodland in the fall for the start of school.

Please Return Borrowed Clothing

If your child has borrowed any clothing from the Main Office, please remember to return it (clean) ASAP. We are running low on clothing to lend out to other students. Thank you!

Lost & Found is Overflowing!

Is your child missing a jacket, sweatshirt, coat, hat, or gloves? We have a clothing rack filled and tubs piled high with missing items. The items are being stored in the hallway near the Gym. The next time you are in the building, please see if some of the items belong to your child. Any unclaimed items will be donated by June 5th.


Lunch Refund Request

As the end of the school year approaches, Megan Haase at Chartwells Food Service has received a lot of inquiries about lunch account refunds for money left on a student's account. If you would like to receive a refund, please click on the link to fill out the form below. A check will be mailed to the address provided on the form and it takes about 2-4 weeks for you to receive it. All forms will get forwarded to Megan for processing. The check will come from the district, not from Meal Magic or Chartwells.
