A Message from our Principal

It’s that time of year again! Students are allowed to wear shorts.  Please check the weather to make sure it is not chilly, but it looks like Spring is here to stay.

The third and fourth graders had a special treat on Thursday afternoon.  They watched their teachers be “put to the test.”  Ask them about it.  This was their end of PSSA treat!

For those who are driving their children to school regularly next year, please fill out the form that went home last week.  This will give us a head start for next year.

Thank you for all the parents who have been helping to organize events and activities all year.  Woodland wouldn’t be the amazing school without all your help.

We had a fantastic Career Day on Friday.  About 35 students set up a display in the lobby.  Every class came through the lobby at a specific time.  The students who participated explained their projects and answered questions.  Check out the web page this week for pictures.

If you are looking for any summer work for your child to prevent the “summer slide,” please contact your child’s teacher.

Thank you again for your continuous support.
