Important Information


There has been a long tradition here at Greenwood where the Principal would read to all the students by the Fire. Unfortunately, we will not be able to do this here at school, but we can do this virtually! The GWE staff will be sharing videos of us reading by the fire through the month of December. We are encouraging families to share a video of your family reading by the Fire as well! Please send your videos to Mrs. Delgado at

Friday, December 4th: Asynchronous Day. This is still a school day, and your child's teacher should have shared activities for them to complete and/or any missing work that needs to be completed.

Still have D200 Library books? You can return them to Woodstock Public Library!

Woodstock Public Library has offered their outside book returns to families who have D200 library books from last year. The WPL outside book returns are available 24/7. I'll arrange to have a D200 courier pick up the books from WPL, and they will then be sorted and delivered to the different schools.

Monday Book Talks with Mrs. Smith

Monday, Nov. 30th, 2pm

This is an online event.

Every Monday at 2:00 Mrs. Smith will share books that are free to have. She will show the cover, and read the summary. If students are interested in the book, they can put a comment in the chat that they would like to have the book, and we will deliver to you on the bus.

We want to make sure that all students have something to read and is of interest to them. We hope that you join us every Monday for Book Talks with Mrs. Smith

Woodstock Public Library

The library is getting ready to start our Winter Reading program! Normally, we'd have an awesome video to share with you to show your students, but with COVID-19, it didn't happen. I'm sure most of you don't actually "see" your students, but if you could pass this information along to the teachers who are in contact with the students the most, we'd really appreciate it.

  • Readers aged 2-years-old -- 12th grade can pick up reading logs starting on November 27th. They can also log into their existing Beanstack account (if they did Summer Reading this past summer or summer 2018) or create a new Beanstack account and register online.
  • They can start turning in logs and getting prizes starting December 1st.
  • Prizes are awarded for every 3 hours of reading. Books are awarded for those readers in the children's program for every 12 hours of reading.
  • Readers will get a lanyard and a badge when they read their first 3 hours. They can earn more badges the more they read.
  • Grand Prize Raffle for the children's program will be a family membership to the DuPage Children's Museum.
  • Grand Prize Raffle for the YA program will be a gift card to PARADOXsquared here in town.
  • The last day for Winter Reading will be January 30th.

More details are available at the children's desk.
