Woodland D50 News and Information
Dear Woodland Families,
I hope this email finds you well rested from Spring Break and ready to take on the 4th quarter of the school year!
REMINDER: Today is a School Improvement Planning Day which means an early dismissal for students, and an afternoon of professional development for our staff.
Before you sign-off for the weekend, please visit the 3rd Quarter Thought Exchange one last time to share your feedback and rate the thoughts of others. We are seeing tons of great ideas and constructive feedback on ways we can support our students. As you read through the thoughts of others, it may spark a new thought for you. The exchange will close tonight at 10 p.m.
Thank you and have a great weekend!
Your Partner in Education,
Dr. Lori Casey, Superintendent

Advance Program Review
Woodland D50 has partnered with Northwestern University's Center for Talent Development to conduct a review for our Advanced Academics program. We need your feedback! This review will include parents/guardians who have children in our regular academic program or in the advanced and challenge program, as well as all Woodland staff members who teach regular, challenge or advanced classes.
To learn more about the review process, please attend a virtual Town Hall Meeting on April 12 at 7 p.m. This kick-off event will serve as a great overview of how staff, parents and students can be a part of the review process and why it is important to the programs we offer at Woodland.
Date: April 12, 2022

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month
Throughout the month of April, you may notice the Blue Kids Lake County posters displayed around the county. This is part of Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center’s recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month. These Blue Kids emblems are to encourage you to learn more about child abuse prevention to know the signs and create awareness. Learn more.
I work for Woodland School District 50 in a communications and public outreach role.
