The Wonderful World of Woodbury
Weekly Update for Families: January 4th
Updates & Friendly Reminders
Happy New Year! Wishing you and yours many blessings into the new year and beyond! We are so grateful for the love and support of our Woodbury families.
Reminder that Wednesday, January 4th is an Institute Day for teachers only. Students are not in attendance. School resumes on Thursday, January 5th.
Our lost and found is now overflowing and we are anxious to clear the table and free up space in our little building. We will have our students walk the collection one final time and this is our final reminder that remaining items will be collected to donate on January 6th.
A note went home about our One School One Book bookmark contest. If you have a book mark to turn in, please send in this week.
Inclement Weather Reminder
Drop Off and Pick-Up Reminders...
The City of Sandwich is asking that our parents/guardians be mindful when parking in the residential area around the school, avoiding parking on parkways/grass of neighbors in order to avoid tearing up grass. Thank you for your help in this matter. We know drop off around our little school is not ideal, please help us by considering our student safety as a priority as you drop off each day.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: A Note Regarding Attendance
We have many supports available if you are in need from our school nurse, to our principal and social worker, our truancy outreach case manager as well as our DeKalb County Family Success Liaison. Please do not hesitate to reach out. Unfortunately, we are experiencing a higher volume of unexcused absences than in a typical year. We are obligated to report attendance that is excessive and without valid reason or proper documentation to our DeKalb County Truancy Outreach. Each day missed during these early years are so critical to our students learning and can have lasting impacts on school attendance and both academic and social emotional well being in the future.
Check out out great work!
These students were recognized for demonstrating enthusiasm for learning in their classrooms! We are really enjoying getting to honor our students and let them know how proud we are of them.
First trimester perfect and outstanding attendance!
