It’s birthday time for Dr. Seuss! Wear your hair styled in the fashion of a Dr. Seuss character! Where in the world have you read a book? Be ready to pinpoint the spot in the main hall!
We are continuing to see improvements with morning drop-off. Please remember to pull up to the curb, pull forward and have your child exit on the Woodstock Building side of the curb. As always, we will continue to work on moving cars along so everyone will have a space to pull up to the curb.
Please do not have your child exit the car in the middle of the street This can be extremely dangerous as cars exit the curb.
Other safety reminders:
If you pick up your child at the end of the day, please remember to meet them at their designated exit. If you have an appointment or need to enter the building, please enter through the main front doors and check-in at the office.
Thank you again for your support in keeping our Woodstock Community safe!
For those of you who have attended a Morning Meeting this year, you may have observed the new Classroom Flags/Banners. One of our School Climate goals for this year is to increase school wide recognition of students and classrooms that exhibit appropriate behavior and display the values and expectations of our school.
Please talk with your child about things they can do to help their class earn a ribbon for their classroom flag/banner.
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:
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
Dear Students, Families and Staff:
I wanted to reach out to assure you that actions this week by the federal government to reduce protections for transgender students does not change or diminish our commitment to upholding clear PPS policies and guidelines that prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or expression.
At a ceremony on February 10 at Wilson High School in SW Portland, nine PPS schools were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving ENERGY STAR certification. To receive this certification, a building must perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. ENERGY STAR schools use an average of 35% less energy, and also release 35% less carbon dioxide.
The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at, www.pps.net/dbrac.
