Woods Lake Elementary
Weekly Update May 24-28, 2021
Hello Woods Lake Family,
Wednesday, May 26, 2021, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. will be our annual family, Everything Educational Event hosted by Mary Anne and Mike from Three Rivers, Michigan! This Open House-style family game night will be packed with fun for everyone! There will be games to take home, food, and much more. Bring a blanket, sit with your family, eat, and play your selected game.
As we comply with safety protocols, we ask that you RSVP HERE on this form so that we can gain a perspective of how many families plan on attending. In addition, we want to purchase enough FREE take-home games for families to continue engaging in learning and fun for everyone!
Save the date: KKIT is inviting you to their end-of-the-year recital! Join us Thursday, June 3rd from 6-7 pm for Music In the Park! Grab a blanket or chair for picnic-style seating as KKIT students perform solos in the soccer field behind the playground. Park in the lot off of Whites Road. In order to attend, you must RSVP and complete a health form.
As always, Stay Safe and Stay Healthy!

Any student who has already been identified for A/T will be invited to participate next year, regardless of whether they participated this year. We understand that this year was a unique year and that many families chose not to participate; therefore there is no penalty for this. We will let families know that if they wish to opt-out again, they may do so by contacting the elementary education office.
