As the end of school draws closer we are looking at our “last day” activities. On Thursday, June 15, we will have a school-wide picnic during lunch on the school baseball field. In order to make sure everyone has a lunch we will need to order sack lunches from Nutrition Services by Wednesday, May 31, 2017. To avoid waste and to order the right amount of food, we need your help.
We are sending home GREEN paper forms for you to indicate if your child will need a sack lunch from school or if he/she will be bringing one from home. You can also download the form here. Please return the form to your child’s teacher by Wednesday May 31, 2017.
In the event of rain we will follow our regular lunch schedule. Parents are welcome to join their students during their lunch times.
We will be unable to order a sack lunch for your child after this date. We are very sorry for the quick turn-around, but need this information no later than 5/31/17
Dear Woodstock Families,
Thank you for participating in the Ride/Roll school event yesterday. It was a huge success!
On Friday May 5th, there will be a large map with questions to fill out in our hallway.
This is part of PBOT's inititiave to improve routes and passages to school. The directions, and brief questions to answer will be on the board. For those of you that are unable to make it, you can fill out the attached map and send it back to school.
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:
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.
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:
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
At the end of every school year, the
School-family Partnership program sponsors Student Recognition Award ceremonies
for successful students across the district. These award ceremonies are
essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of
PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re
excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their
stories with you.
Please congratulate all who participated. They all were fantastic and made Benson Tech proud!
Hello PPS families and staff,
On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.
This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
CORRECTION: 2nd budget listening session is Tuesday, April 25
We want to hear from you about the 2017-18 budget for PPS! The Portland School Board has scheduled three listening sessions to take your comments on how we should allocate our dollars in the coming year.
