Wolf Pup Weekly

Woodriver Issue #5 - 9/16/22


Hello Wolf Pup parents! We had 93% attendance this past week. We are still at 91% for the

quarter but with another week like last week, we will be a lot closer to our goal of

92%. We had three days last week of 94% attendance! Great job!

It is starting to get cooler during recess and many students are bringing jackets

outside. I highly recommend you put names in the gear, especially more expensive

jackets. Ms. Stepovich and I carry in several items each day and before we bring

them to the Lost and Found we check for names. If there is a name we can return it

to the owner, if not, they join the ever-growing pile of unclaimed clothing.

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to our Open House this past

Tuesday. It was great to see so many of our families and I was so happy the weather

cooperated with us this time. Every teacher I talked to mentioned they had full

classrooms and how happy they were to learn more about kids and families.

In addition to our Open House, Tuesday we had smoke coming from one of our

bathrooms. I would like to thank our staff and students for their wonderful and

calm behavior during our evacuation. Thank you to the University Fire Department

and the UAF fire department for both responding to our call. I was not in the

building when the smoke was discovered and so a special thank you goes out to the

office staff and especially Mrs. Brashear who is in charge of the building whenever I

am away. They did a great job recognizing the danger and taking the appropriate

steps to make sure everyone was safe.
