Yay! I Showed the Woodbury Way!

The following students were recognized by our teaching assistants for showing fantastic lunch manners! This means they use a restaurant voice, clean up after themselves, and are polite and respectful of those around them. In the next couple of weeks we will be focusing on perseverance and GRIT - working through obstacles and understanding that mistakes are proof you are TRYING!

BASICS DEKALB COUNTY: Have a little one not in school yet? Please check out this great organization in our county. This same organization brought us the Toddler Garden at Knight's Park and is integral in educating parents on the little things you can do with your child to promote brain development in the early years. You can also follow them on FACEBOOK. Have a concern about your child's early growth and development? Please feel free to reach out to us if you are seeking guidance or resources. By doing so, we can work together to provide your child with the support in order to have the best start in kindergarten!
