Pre-order sales have ended, but you can purchase an autographed book through Wednesday, October 8th. Books will be delivered to school on Friday, October 10th.

A Note From the Principal

Dear Families,


We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to attend Woodholme's Family Learning Nights in order to learn ways you can help reinforce learning at home! Our teachers have been creating activities and gathering materials so you can walk away from the sessions with ideas and activities to use at home to strengthen academic skills. The evenings will be made up of three sessions, including an optional session on BCPS One. This opportunity is different from the Back to School Night events where teachers presented information about classroom procedures and grade level expectations. These events are designed for our parents and families to learn about fun and helpful ways to increase student achievement and strengthen skills by doing activities together at home, so please join us from 6-8 PM on October 14th (for Kindergarten and Grades 1 and 2) and/or on October 21st (for Grades 3, 4, 5) to learn how you can help! Let's work together to help our children succeed!


Sincerely,

Teresa Young
