The End is Near

Greetings Woodcrest families,

I am not one for keeping track of the days left of a school year. This year is an exception. There is a lot happening in our classrooms.

This week, both onsite and at home, there are fun community building celebrations occurring. Each of you should have received information about the Woodcrest Countdown from your child’s homeroom teacher. In addition to homeroom celebrations, fourth grade students and their families have enjoyed coming for a special photo opportunity with their teachers as we wish them farewell and good luck at Westwood Intermediate School.

This week also includes material drop-off opportunities for our Extended Flexible Learning families. Today, many of our third and fourth grade students came to the building to return learning resources. It was great seeing so many faces and feeling their excitement. Tomorrow, June 3, first and second grade Extended Flexible Learning students will be returning learning resources. Finally, on June 4, we are excited to see Kindergarten families.

The end of the school year is always exciting. This year, the excitement is amplified by a sense of huge accomplishment at reaching this milestone despite the challenges of the year. Thank you all for the partnership to support your child having the best school year possible. We could not do it any other way than JUNTOS ES MEJOR!

Thank you,

John Franke

Lost and Found

As the school year comes to an end, our Lost and Found area is still filled with treasures. As a way to help parents see what is there, we will have some tables set up outside (near the main entrance) with all the Lost and Found items. The last date for viewing will be on Monday, June 7 from 3-4 pm. On June 8, all the remaining items will be donated.

From the health office:

If your child has medication in the health office, they will be sent home in your child's backpack on the last day of school, unless different arrangements are made with the school nurse. Please call the health office at 763-600-5804 if you have any questions, or would like to make arrangements for medication pick up."
