The Wonderful World of Woodbury

Woodbury Elementary May/June 2021

Gratitude...

Dear Woodbury Families,


As we bring this monumental school year to an end we cannot thank our families enough for the incredible support you provided our Woodbury staff this year. Needless to say, there were many times where we found ourselves feeling heavy-hearted and at some points hopeless. We are beyond grateful for all of your effort supporting your students through this roller coaster of a year, for seeing our hearts beyond the things we could not control, and for sticking with us as we learned and grew together. While this year was hard, we overcame so much adversity. Our students and staff shined in their positivity, their stamina, and their effort and willingness to make each day count. Many life lessons learned, even at the most trying of times. We are SO VERY PROUD of our Woodbury students, families, and our staff. While it may not be the definition of success for all, we accomplished so much and we did it together. Stand tall. Hold your head up. Be proud. We are #woodburystrong.

Chromebook End of the Year Turn In Information

All Sandwich District 430 students will be required to turn in their Chromebooks at the end of the school year. They will be stored for the summer and returned to the same students at the beginning of the next school year. 3rd grade students’ Chromebooks will be sent to Dummer to be ready for them there for the 2021-2022 school year.


Return Dates:

  • In-person students: Turn in date is June 7th.
  • Remote Students: Turn in dates are June 9th between 1:30-3:00 p.m. and June 10th between 8:00.-12:00 p.m.


If you are unable to make these dates and times, please email vballas@sandwich430.org to let Mrs. Ballas know when the device will be dropped off. Please drop off the Chromebooks and any books checked out from the Library at our main doors. Mrs. Ballas will be there to collect all materials.


Parents/Guardians and students need to follow these steps on turn in day:

1. Be sure to bring both the Chromebook and charger on the day of turn-in.

2. Be sure the Chromebook is charged.

3. Be sure to remove any stickers.

4. Be ready to report any damage or problems with the Chromebook to Mrs. Ballas


We cannot accept:

  • A Chromebook with an asset tag (barcode) that is not correct. They will need to check with siblings, classmates, etc. to see if the correct Chromebook has merely switched hands.
  • A Chromebook without a charger unless the student has verified that the charger is lost and can expect a $25 fee.
  • If the student forgot the charger at home – the Chromebook will not be accepted until the next day when they bring both their Chromebook and charger. Please call or email Mrs. Ballas if you have any questions


Thank you,

Mrs. Ballas
