Wolf Pup Weekly
Woodriver Issue #19 - 1/13/23
FROM PRINCIPAL GUY
Hello Wolf Pup parents!
Just a reminder we don’t have school on Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We will return to school on Tuesday.
On the budget front, we are hearing that most legislators in Juneau are in favor of increasing education funding, however, there is a wide range regarding what that increase should be. As our district starts to seriously talk about our budget, I will keep you informed about not only what is being proposed here in Fairbanks, but also what is happening in Juneau. We are currently facing an approximate 10 million dollar budget shortfall and while it is not yet official, I am anticipating an increase in class sizes which is another word for cutting teaching positions. Our current PTR or Pupil to Teacher Ratio is 25 to 1 in the elementary. As the board starts to talk about our budget we will see what their proposal to increase PTR will be.
Science Fair packets are still available for interested students. They can get those packets in the front office. Our Woodriver Science Fair is March 2nd and 3rd .
