Falcon Fun Day - Thank You!
A special "thank you" goes out to all of our incredible parents for volunteering and donating to make our Falcon Fun Days run smoothly. Our students had a wonderful time celebrating their achievements!
Our Library Media Center has adopted an exciting new program to promote reading! Beanstack gamifies reading logs through competitions and rewards! We are wrapping up our first campus-wide challenge, and can’t wait to announce the winners.
Ask your student about what their reading, and encourage them to log every minute in Beanstack!

Our Transportation department has an update for the Parent Portal in the Smart Tag system called Smart Locate. Smart Tag has created a video to help people understand how Smart Locate works. This isn't just for parents, the students can use this to see where their bus is for rainy days, cold days, etc. They just need their parents to create an account and give them access!
Ms. Haidet Gonzalez
Hi! My name is Haidet Gonzalez and this is my first year at Woodridge Forest Middle School. This is my 4th year as an educator, I have taught 6th-8th grade ELA and coached 8th grade Social Studies. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Major in Interdisciplinary Studies and a minor in 4-8 ELAR/SS. I was also lucky enough to obtain two Masters Degrees from SHSU in Curriculum & Instruction and School Leadership. A fun fact about me is that all of my dogs are named after Disney characters Tarzan, Mushu and Meeko. I have been blessed with an amazing team here at WFMS and look forward to an amazing year.
