    Principal’s Notes

    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.

     

    In School! On Time! Everyday!

    Since winter break  average daily attendance has been improving despite the flu that has been going around. January attendance awards went out on tuesday and 168 students got a new silver dog tag to add to their swag tags collection. 214 students were recognized for being starting the morning on time throughout January and got to add a thumbs up charm to their collection.
