With the beautiful weather we have been having, more students are walking to school. Mr Stultz and the safety patrol wanted to remind everyone how important it is for kids to cross only at the cross walks on Duke where safety patrol is stationed.. The safety patrol’s bright flags and vests are there to make student crossings more visible to drivers. Parents can help out by walking with your child when possible or reviewing their route to review pedestrian safety.
Social Skill of the Month: Gratitude
In February, we are learning the social skill of being grateful and expressing gratitude. Classes are reading The Giving Tree with their teachers. ‘By learning about gratitude helps kids become sensitive to the feelings of others and develop empathy’ says Barbara Lewis, author of What Do You Stand For? For Kids (Free Spirit Publishing, 2005). Grateful kids look outside their one-person universe and understand that their parents and other people do things for them -- prepare dinner, dole out hugs, buy toys.
Family Math Game night
Join us for fun math focused games on February 15th. Woodmere staff will be hosting games for families to play together in many of the classrooms. Playing games is a great way to help children apply and build math skills, and coming together for a night of games and a meal together is fun for everyone.

PPS Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero answered questions from moderator J.T. Flowers, a Rhodes Scholar and former Lincoln High School student, on what he’s learned in his four months on the job, how he plans to tackle longstanding issues, and his vision for what the district can become. Guerrero opened the presentation with a speech covering his trajectory from English Language Learner at schools in the San Francisco Bay Area and Central Valley to obtaining two Harvard degrees and leading Oregon’s largest school district.
Portland Public Schools has added four members to Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero’s leadership team.
Dear Families and Staff,
My heart goes out to all of those touched by the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Wednesday.
