What's Happening Woodward
October, Here We Come!
Our first Month together has been focused on teaching our students the routines and expectations of Woodard and how to be a community of learners. While these routines will continue to be taught and reviewed, we are off to a great start!
In this installment, I have provided a few reminders regarding arrival, a classroom highlight from National Hispanic Heritage Month, a message from the SOS including upcoming fundraisers and donation requests, and information regarding the Woodward School Council.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Woodward main office or your child's classroom teacher should you have any questions or concerns.
Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month 9/15-10/15
In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, one of our Woodward Second grade students, Parker Lugo, shared all about Puerto Rico and his family's traditions and culture. Students were treated to a virtual read-aloud of the book Tiny Travelers: Puerto Rico Treasure Quest by Susie Jaramillo
which took students on a journey of Puerto Rican culture, geography, cities, and landmarks.
