Word From The Woods

Bishop Woods School Newsletter - Week of 5.24.2020

Greetings Bishop Woods Families,

Thank you to all members of the Bishop Woods family that participated in our reverse parade on Wednesday! The weather was beautiful,, and our celebration was a great success! It was so wonderful to see everyone's smiling faces! For those of you that were unable to attend, a slideshow of pictures is included below.

This week, in recognition of Memorial Day, there will be no online learning on Monday, May 25th. Please enjoy this day with your families, taking time to remember the men and women that died serving our country in the military.

Last week, I sent out a feedback form for you to complete in regards to online learning. If you have not yet done so, please take a moment to fill out the feedback form regarding your experience at the link below. This information will assist us as we move forward with planning.

Online Learning Feedback Form: https://forms.gle/La35b4hWeWwSs4CL6

Once again, please remember that all staff members are available from 9am-1pm each day to support teaching and learning, along with answer any questions or concerns you may have. Please reach out if you need us! All teachers have their phone numbers posted in Google Classroom, and the phone numbers of administration are posted at the bottom of this newsletter.

Stay in & stay well,

Mrs. Natalino

Competition of the Week: Masked Singer!

We have some brave staff members at Bishop Woods that have performed a favorite song, and you need to guess whose voice you hear! Watch the FlipGrid at the link below, and then submit your guesses!


To Guess

Option #1: Open the video of a singer, click reply (green button underneath singer), and take a quick video with your guess for each singer!!!!

Option #2: Submit your guesses on the Google Form at the following link: https://forms.gle/CN43YArxd7c5RkAD7

The person who gets the most INCORRECT guesses is the ultimate MASKED SINGER and was able to conceal their identity from ALL OF YOU!

There will also be shout outs to the staff members and students that guess all (or the most) Masked Singers correctly!
