  • Welcome New PE Teacher

    Please join us in welcoming our new PE Teacher, Robin Krill!

    Here is a message from Ms. Krill:

    I am so excited to be joining the staff at Woodstock Elementary. This is my 12th year in education and I have had the privilege of working with students from ages 2-18 in both a traditional classroom and in a variety of support settings. I care deeply about movement and teamwork and I look forward to working with each student at Woodstock to help them grow and progress in their abilities. It is going to be a great year in PE!

    Although Ms. Krill has been hired, she needs to fulfill her commitments in her current position at another district.  As soon as a replacement is identified and hired in her current district, she will officially begin at Woodstock.

    In the meantime, Ms. Krill will be working with the school to prepare for a smooth transition when she begins.

    Welcome Ms. Krill!

  • Outdoor Recess and Jacket Reminder

    Just a friendly reminder that recess will be held outdoors as much as possible. Students should also dress appropriately for various weather conditions. Layers are always encouraged. Bring a water-resistent or waterproof jacket on days with the potential for rain.
  • Socktober

    This October the Woodstock Student Council will be organizing our first ever “Socktober” sock drive!  The rules are simple.  Donate as many new pairs of socks as you would like and turn them into a donation bin under the bulletin board in the front of the school.  At the end of the month, our student council will meet after school to donate the socks to Mainspring.  Mainspring is a nonprofit that will provide our city’s homeless population with socks throughout the cold winter.

    Thank you for your donations!

  • Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year!

    I am very excited to start my second year as the Principal of Woodstock Elementary.  I look forward to continuing our work to make your child’s school experience rich, meaningful, and successful!

    As we are eager to see returning and new students, I would also like to introduce staff new to the Woodstock School Community:

    • Katy Vawter, Assistant Principal - With our growing student population, Woodstock has been assigned a new Assistant Principal for the first time as a K-5 school.  Ms. Vawter joined us mid-August and is preparing to support students, teachers, and parents/guardians through this school year.
    • Kylea Sundberg, Counselor (Halftime) - Mrs. Sundberg is also a new addition based on our growing population.  She will be working at Woodstock in the mornings alongside Mr. Kosmas supporting whole class guidance and small group work.
    • Rebecca Wilcox, Kindergarten Neighborhood Teacher - Ms. Wilcox was a temporary Neighborhood Kindergarten Teacher last year and has been officially hired for this year.  We are excited to have her back!
    • Lynette Diller, 1st Grade Neighborhood Teacher - Mrs. Diller joins us from Peninsula Elementary.  She comes with some strong experience in differentiation and is looking forward to working with the families of Woodstock!
    • Jamie Hillenberg, 3rd Grade English Immersion Teacher - Ms. Hillenberg brings a great teaming approach and technology skills to our school.  She is excited to work with her Immersion Teaching Partner and begin the school year.
    • Aron Steinke, 5th Grade Neighborhood Teacher - Mr. Steinke will be teaching 5th Grade and will be a strong addition to our 5th Grade Team.  He has some creative and “out-of-the-box” approaches to connecting with students and engaging them in learning.
    • Ali Borosky, ELL Teacher - Mrs. Borosky comes to Woodstock from Lent Elementary School.  With a background in both Reading Instruction and English Language Development, she will be a great addition to our school.

    Please be sure to say hello to our new members of the Woodstock Staff!

    As we all return to school, please take a moment to review the Arrival and Dismissal Procedures in this packet of information.  With student safety being our first consideration, please cooperate with the Arrival and Dismissal Procedures.

    In preparation for a year full of learning and growth, the Woodstock School Community participated in a survey last spring to identify our school values.  In addition to our school expectations that students are Safe, Respectful, and Responsible, this year we will be emphasizing our community’s values of Compassion, Curiosity, Integrity, and Perseverance.  Through these expectations and values, we look forward to another great year!

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send me an email, give me a call, or stop by the office.

    With Woodstock Pride,

    Seth Johnson, Principal
    Woodstock Elementary

  • Next Steps: Enrollment Balancing

    Dear Portland Public Schools Community,
    I accepted the role of Interim Superintendent of Portland Public Schools (PPS) at a challenging moment in time. During my first month on the job, I initiated an assessment of the programmatic and system priorities identified by the Board of Education for the 2016-17 school year. After these priorities were established, a number of additional priorities emerged that also require attention:

  • Indoor rowing education comes to Portland Public Schools

     Recent Erg Ed event in Seattle WA.
    PPS has been awarded the 2016-2017 Erg Ed Grant. This grant provides erg equipment, access to the Erg Ed Curriculum, and comprehensive teacher training throughout the year.
  • PPS employee recognized as a hero
