If you would like your family's contact information in the School Directory, please click on THIS LINK to provide the necessary information BY SEPTEMBER 27th. It takes less than 2 minutes, and you can choose to include address, email and/or phone numbers. The directory is especially handy for setting up play dates and sending out any birthday party invitations!
If you have any plans to volunteer at school this year-in the classroom, on a field trip or in some other way, please go to the link HERE and apply TODAY! The district needs about two weeks to process background information, and you will not be allowed to join us on a field trip until the information is processed.
When applying, please use your name as it appears on your driver's license or government issued ID, and plan on bringing your ID every time you visit or volunteer. Be specific on areas of volunteer interest, as well as on student(s) and teacher(s) to aid in contacting you for volunteer opportunities.
Please join us at the Woodland Open House this evening, between 5:30 and 7:00 PM. See the classroom, meet the teachers, and learn more about our school.
We are so excited to see everyone!
We are so exited to meet our incoming kindergartners this week! New kindergartners are coming to Woodland for short sessions with other students to meet the teachers, each other while we take some time to get to know the children a bit better before creating class lists.
Information about classroom teacher assignments will be mailed to your homes before Woodland's Open House, which will be Wednesday, August 28th. We are looking forward to an AMAZING year!
Thank you to our many volunteers who helped make our Kindergarten Valentine's Day party so much fun! If you were at the party, and have pictures you'd like to share on our site, please email them to Mrs. Levy at LevyJ@district279.org.
We had a very surprising 4 days home from school last week due to snow and extreme cold. Luckily, school was back in session on Friday, and we were able to go on our field trip to the Minnesota Children's Museum as scheduled! Everyone had a great time, and we were lucky to have LOTS of parent volunteers!
Due to school closings, some of our conference dates have had to be rescheduled. If your conference was scheduled for Tuesday, January 29, it has been rescheduled for the same time on Tuesday, February 5th. If your conference was scheduled for Thursday, January 31, it is rescheduled for the same time on Tuesday, February 12. Conferences set on Wednesday, February 6th will remain as scheduled. If the new date and time do not work for you, please go online to www.ptcfast.com/schools/Woodland_Elementary_School to find a new date and time that will work for you. You can also call Mrs. Kedrowski or Mrs. Titus in the office at 763-315-6400, and they can help you with selecting a new time. Thank you, and we look forward to talking with you about how your child is growing in kindergarten!
This Friday, October 26, is school picture day! Our photos will be taken before lunch. An order form and envelope will come home this evening (Wednesday), but you can order online at www.mylifetouch.com.
Our picture ID is MI218336T0 (after the M is letter I, after the T is the number 0). You can purchase photo packages for multiple family members while on the site, and if you order online, you will not need to send your child to school with any extra papers on Friday! There are also many background and package options online-you can look around for some good deals!
Tomorrow is our evening Kindergarten social event, "Chillin' and Grillin' with Kindergarten", from 5:30-7:00. This event is RAIN OR SHINE! If it is raining, we will eat and visit in our classrooms. Even if you didn't RSVP, please feel free to join us! We will serve food to families who have paid in advance first, but if there are extras, we can cook something up for you! (Or, you can eat before or after, and just come visit with our classmates and their parents!)
