Welcome Back

I hope that each of you were able to find time to enjoy friends, family and a bit of relaxation during Spring Break. While the respite came at a very welcome time, I’m entirely excited to be back at it with our amazing students. With the third quarter now behind us, we are focusing our attention on the individual needs of our students and planning a responsive instructional model with each of them in mind. We now have 8 weeks left of school which is one of the longest stretches of teaching and learning. We are all looking forward to this time with students. Over the next 8 weeks there is a lot packed into the school day, including, SBA testing, special 5th grade events, field day and so so much more. Please pay close attention to the Wildcat News and your teachers newsletters as this information will be updated regularly!

In partnership,

Dawn Bowers

Is your family planning to move over the summer? Are you moving out of the Woodin service area? This information is vital to our planning process for next year. Please let the office know your plans as soon as you know, to allow a smooth transfer of student records between schools, and to ensure the end-of-year report card is sent to the correct address.
