    Dear Woodland Families,

    Best wishes to you and your family as we ring in the new year together!   The cold winter months can be challenging but they do provide us with opportunities to spend some quality time with families and friends.  This is a great time to play some family board games or share some of your favorite picture books with your children.  If you ever need suggestions, please feel free to let us know and our teachers and/or school librarian will be happy to offer some ideas.

    We will continue to go outside on some days during the winter months, but will check the weather each day.   Please make sure your child is bundled for outdoor recess.  When the students have indoor recess, we will send them to available areas throughout the school. They are welcome to bring in board games, puzzles, or other activities, however we do not allow handheld games, electronics, or other valuable items in school. 

    We are excited to host our annual Winter Concert on Thursday, January 11, 2018.  Our students and teachers have been excitedly preparing for this fabulous event and are looking forward to performing for an audience.  Many thanks to our families for all of their support and encouragement.  We truly value our home/school partnership.   January and February will also include our winter assessments in grades K-5.

    On behalf of our entire staff, wishing you and your family good health and happiness in 2018!


    Warm Regards,

    Diana Ketcham
