A Message from our Principal

PSSA’s start this week.  This is a state assessment for 3rd and 4th graders.  Please have your children get a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast.  The testing dates are 4/9 -4/11 for ELA, 4/16 – 4/17 for Math, and 4/23 and 4/24 for 4th grade Science.  Students may bring in a few pieces of hard candy for those dates. 

Students in most grades will have a change in their schedule for the PSSA dates. 

It’s hard to believe that it is April and we are still seeing snow flurries.  Please make sure your child dresses appropriately for the weather. 

Later this month we will send out updated Car Loop procedures for the 18/19 school year.  Please keep an eye out for this communication. 

The end of the marking period is 4/10.  Report Cards will go live on 4/19/18.  Please see the Methacton Web Page if you do not know how to access your child’s report card.  

Thank you for all you do to make Woodland an amazing community.
