  • Message about Third Quarter Report Cards/Progress Reports

    We just wanted to remind families that as part of the terms with Portland Association of Teachers (PAT) to turn a planning day into an instructional day to make up for school closures this winter, the district agreed that third quarter report cards/progress reports will only be mandatory for students that meet the following criteria:

    • Seniors
    • Students who otherwise need a grade (i.e. eligibility for athletics or college applications)
    • Students in quarter classes
    • Students in danger of failing or whose behavior or achievement shows a significant decline
    • Special education students

    Please know that at any time you can communicate directly with your child’s teacher to discuss your child’s progress and understand how your child is performing in school.

  • 2017 Run for the Arts

    Our annual Run For the Arts was a great success. Thank you so much to all the people who showed up to encourage and cheer on our runners and thank you especially to all the volunteers. These events run smoothly because of the help of our wonderful volunteers and I am so thankful for each and every one of you.

     

    Please remember to collect donations from your sponsors and get those turned in by Monday April 24th. We are excited to bring in gifted art enrichment teachers next year and this run allows us to do that.

Principal's Message

  • November 2016

    Dear Woodstock Families,
    Thanks for a great start to the school year!  It has been a full, fast, and fun first two months of school!  As of today, our school population is at 535 students.  This is an increase of 44 students from where we were at last year at this time.  It is wonderful to see so many new faces in our school!
     
    As we have grown this year, we have experienced some growing pains.  I'd like to thank our staff and parents for being flexible and with changes this year designed to decrease the learning distraction to students.  Considering our growing population and some unexpected facility issues, our students are doing AMAZING!  Thanks for your role in keeping the focus on learning. 
     
    As we move into the late fall and winter months at Woodstock, we look forward to continuing to work with you and your child(ren) to make their school experience positive and enriching.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child's education, please do not hesitate to contact us.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Seth Johnson, Principal
    Woodstock Elementary 
  • 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
