Wolf Pup Weekly

Woodriver Issue #34 4/22/22


Hello Wolf Pup parents!

The weather is warm and beautiful. If the sun continues to shine, I think students

will be out in t-shirts next week during recess. However, they will continue to need

boots (rain boots are fine) and either snow pants or rain pants. Every day I am

amazed at how wet our students get while playing in the melting snow.

Next week we will be hosting our spring concerts. Wednesday will be our

Band/Orchestra and Chorus performance for students who are in those groups.

Thursday is our primary concert where all kindergarten through 3rd graders will

sing for us. All of the details are below in this newsletter. This spring concert is

bittersweet as it will be the final concert for Mrs. Hackett, our incredible Music

Teacher. Mrs. Hackett is retiring at the end of this year after over 30 years with our


AK Star testing is over except for about 50 students who need to do make up tests

next week, which we will be starting on Monday. All make up tests need to

be completed by Friday.

Congratulations to our Woodriver First Lego League team who competed today and

were recognized with the outstand teamwork award and the award for coding. Way

to go Wolf Pups! A huge thank you to Sarah Albert and to Roseann Dameron for

organizing and sponsoring our teams!
