From the Principal
Hello Woodstock Families,
Happy December! I hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving break and is ready for the final stretch of 2019. As this time of year can be full of fun activities and excitement, it can also be a time that is tough for some students and families. Knowing some of these seasonal stressors can impact students at school and home, our staff have been working with students to provide strategies for dealing with anxiety or stress. Our Counseling Department has been pushing into classrooms to offer guidance and tools for students to use when they feel anxious or frustrated. Be sure to ask your child about some of the strategies they have learned from their teachers or counselors. A great place to start is asking your child to share some of the ways they use breathing to help them calm themselves.
There is more information below, but I want to remind families that the 3rd-5th Woodstock Winter Arts and Music Show is next Thursday. This is shaping up to be a great evening and we hope to see you there!
As usual, I’d also like to remind families to make sure their children are dressed appropriately, with layers, for school each day. As temperatures and conditions can fluctuate throughout the day and we try to have recess outdoors as much as possible, we want to make sure students are dressed in appropriate clothing. If you need assistance making sure your child has adequate clothing for the winter months, please contact the office.
Thanks for being a part of our community. Have a great weekend.
With Woodstock Pride,
Seth Johnson, Principal

Book Fair Success!!
Thank you all for supporting this year's book fair! Total sales exceeded last year's dollar amount by several hundred - and from that we are able to earn a few thousand "Scholastic Dollars," as well as several thousand dollars in direct cash towards purchasing new library book and supplies. Aside from (very generous) contributions from our PTA, this is our main source of funding for collection development, so thank you for making it profitable!
A pile of books purchased with scholastic funds - already getting ready to circulate!
PICCs of the week
We are excited to recognize our PICCs for this week. Our PICCs of the Week are students that went above and beyond to display Perseverance, Integrity, Compassion, and/or Curiousity.
Please see the group photo of the students from today’s morning meeting below:
