Word From The Woods

Bishop Woods Newsletter 4.4.22

Hello Bishop Woods Family!

This is Ms. Crisci with some updates for this week:


April 1st marks the first day of Arab American Heritage Month. In this video we have two students, Sarrah and Sally, presenting with our one and only, Ms. Pierce. Together they are explaining the importance of AAHM, some common phrases, information on Islam, the various countries, and Ramadan. We are very proud of these girls because of their enthusiasm to share their culture and heritage with us. The additional resource is an in-depth presentation that our students will be studying throughout the month.

Parents, we are beginning our State testing this week. Remind your children to charge their chromebook each night so they will be ready in the morning. Please talk to your children about using their cell phones especially during testing. Using phones during testing may be considered a breach, not only for our school but for the district. We are asking all students to hand in their phone during this time, or to ensure that their phones are completely turned off. Students will get their phones back when testing is completed.

Attendance Matters so we have a challenge for you. Attend school every day with NO TARDIES from April 4th to May 13th and you will be rewarded with an ice cream sundae party. Below is the link to the flyer.

Important Dates:

April 6th is a half day for students. Teachers are participating in professional development so students will be dismissed at 12:50.

April 7th, the 7th grade class is going bowling!


Thank you for being a part of the Bishop Woods family! Have a great week!

An inside look at Bishop Woods!

Parent Survey!

We value your feedback and would like your observations so we can grow as a school. Please click the link and share any thoughts or ideas you have to help us improve. Also, tell us what we are doing well so we make sure to continue!

Design Lab fun!

Classroom Buddies!!

Did you know every student at Bishop Woods has a buddy? The students are able to experience community building activities with a partner buddy each month! This gives the older students an opportunity to mentor and practice leadership skills as they work with their younger schoolmates. The younger students get the benefit of learning from the upperclassman and see positive role models right in their own school! Thank you to the Culture & Climate Team (and especially Mrs. Daly) for organizing!
