Important Message from Woodland

Hello Woodland Families,

I hope that you are having a wonderful summer.  It is hard to believe that we have entered the month of August already.  As you know, each year we have a school wide theme which is directly connected to a summer reading book.   Next year's theme will be a "sports" theme focused on the importance of teamwork, the value of hard work and the success that can come with perseverance.    Classrooms, hallways, school wide events and weekly messages will be centered on our theme.   The summer reading book, "Kid Athletes: True Tales of Childhood from Sports Legends” by David Stablerchronicles some famous athletes and how they have overcome obstacles to be successful in their professions. 

            We are asking all parents to have their children either read the book or have the book read to them prior to the beginning of the school year.  All students are encouraged to have an understanding of the book realizing that not all students will be able to read the book alone.  It is highly encouraged that parents read to and with their children. 

            Books may be purchased through Amazon or from Barnes and Noble for approximately $13.95.   We do have copies on hand which can be checked out during the summer at the Main Office for two-week intervals.   Please call ahead or email me if you would like to check out one of the books.   

            I am very excited about all of the wonderful things we have planned for the 2017-2018 school year.  It is going to be another great year at Woodland!  Enjoy the remainder of the summer.  

Kindly,

 

Jeff Heaney
