Wolf Pup Weekly

Woodriver Issue #35 4/29/22


Hello Wolf Pup parents,

We are 14 school days away from summer. We have a lot of events coming up that

we want to make sure you are aware of. Next week is Teacher Appreciation week!

You can see ideas on ways to celebrate them below. Kindergarten round-up is next week, so if you have any kindergarten students that will be starting school at Woodriver next year, please either enroll online, or you can come to the office and we will have computers you can use to register them.

Warm weather also means students will be getting out and having field trips. Please

look over your teacher’s classroom newsletters for more details. Graduations will

also be happening the last week of school. We will have the final details of those out

next week. We will be hosting three different graduations; Kindergarten, 5th and 6th


Finally, I want to thank you everyone for coming to our spring concerts this week. It

was great to have a everyone back in our school. I was so impressed by our kids. It

has been a long time since they performed in front of that many people and they

were clearly audible all the way at the back of the gym. While it was bittersweet to

attend that last concert with Mrs. Hackett, who is retiring this year, it was incredible

to see her hard work pay off with such a great set of concerts.
