Notice of School Hours Change for Next Year 2017-18
PPS will be changing school start and end times at a number of schools, including Woodstock. As of the start of school in fall 2017, we will start at 8:00 and release at 2:15 p.m. This minor adjustment is part of a district-wide alignment of schedules. Please take note of this change.
I would like to remind you of some important events and updates for the the fall.
Project Community Care - This year, Community Care Day is scheduled for August 26 from 9:00 to 11:45 AM. This will be a great opportunity to help spruce up the school by spreading bark dust, pulling weeds, and doing some general landscaping. Our Sustainability Committee will also be embarking on the first steps to create a Learning Garden for our school. Please come and join us for this event to help our school and reconnect with other Woodstock Families.
Kindergarten Ice Cream Social - The Annual PTA/Shu Ren Incoming Kindergarten Family Ice Cream Social will follow the Community Care Day starting at noon. This event is for families of incoming kindergarten students and will take place in the Woodstock City Park, adjacent to the school grounds. Please help spread the word if you know any incoming kindergarten families!
First Day of School (and new school hours) - The first day of school for 1st-5th grade students is August 30. As noted below, the new school hours are from 8:00 AM to 2:15 PM...be prepared!
First Day of School for Kindergarteners - Kindergarten students will have an individual appointment on August 30, 31, or September 1. Their first day of school is September 5.
I hope you have a great summer and we are already excited for your return in the fall.

On Wednesday, students across the nation chose to speak out on the issue of school safety. In many school communities, students observed a moment of silence and walked out of class to give voice to their thoughts and feelings. We should all listen.The horrific mass shootings that have taken student lives in recent years have provoked an incredibly important dialogue and created a valuable “teachable moment” for all of us.
