Note from Principal Lunkin
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week!! We love our teachers at Woodridge and we know you do too! They are among the hardest working, most dedicated individuals I know. The art of teaching often extends beyond content knowledge and the walls of the classroom. The art of teaching requires teachers to facilitate thinking, listen to questions, encourage risks, support struggles, and cultivate dreams all while instructing, mentoring, encouraging, influencing, guiding, directing and inspiring students to overcome obstacles, dream big and accomplish impossible tasks! That's a mouth full but all very true. I read somewhere that a truly great teacher is hard to find, difficult to part with, and impossible to forget! We have great teachers at Woodridge! So, take time this week to show them that we love and appreciate the work they do!!

Are You Sleeping
It is undoubtedly tempting for us to stay up later and later since we don’t have to get up so early for school or work. However, normal sleep patterns are extremely important. While it may be ok to adjust bedtimes and wake up times a little, it is still important that we all get the correct number of hours of sleep. According to sleepfoundation.org, the amount of sleep we get affects our mood, energy, and health. Though we may all need slightly different amounts, here are some general guidelines.
● Preschoolers (3-5): 10-13 hours
● School age children (6-13): 9-11 hours
● Teenagers (14-17): 8-10 hours
● Younger adults (18-25): 7-9 hours
● Adults (26-64): 7-9 hours
View this sleep duration recommendations chart for more details. Get some rest, keep smiling, stay home if you can, and stay safe!
