  • Medication Pickup Reminder

    Dear Parents/Guardians, 
    As we approach the end of the school year, I wanted to remind you that if you have a student that has medication in the health room, it needs to be picked up by the last day of school.  All medication that is not picked up by the last day of school will be disposed of.  
    Please reference the attached document and let me or the Woodstock School SHA Bryn Suchock or I know if you have any questions.

  • School Supplies for 2022-2023

    This year, Woodstock Elementary is NOT requiring families to purchase school supplies. We've collected and consolidated all of our surplus supplies and plan to purchase any other needed supplies with our school funds.
    We understand that the school supply shopping experience can be fun for some families, but we are focusing on creating an equitable school experience for all families. 
    However, as school funding is always challenging and we understand there is an interest in our community to donate to the school supply fund, we are providing an opportunity for families, at their discretion, to make a contribution. Based on the previous school supply lists at Woodstock Elementary, the K-5 average cost for school supplies per student is approximately $30.00.
    If you’d like to make a donation for your own child(ren) or for additional students at Woodstock, you can submit your contribution through the School Pay portal. Information to access School Pay can be found by clicking this link.

  • We Must Talk About Race

    Hello Woodstock Families,
    My School Counseling colleague Mr. Hildner (Scott K-5) has put together a very useful and comprehensive web page I wanted to share.  Not only is there resources for us as adults and parents, but I also appreciated the age appropriate resources for our kids and students.  We can sometimes not know where to start, and I hope the information and resources on his page helps have these important discussions about race.

  • Season of Sharing

    Dear Families,

    For the winter holidays, we are offering some assistance for families that are having difficulty making ends meet. We are currently collecting holiday wish lists from families needing support.

    Here is how the program works:

    We will be taking referrals for families during the month of November. Families wishing to participate in the program will fill out a wishlist for each child in their home. Please return your child’s wish list by November 12th.  Each wishlist item will be coded, written on a tag and placed on the bulletin board across from Room 1. All names of program participants will be left off the tags and kept confidential. Families that are able to give will take one or more wishlist tags from the bulletin board and shop for those items. They will then bring the wrapped gift(s) or gift card(s) to the office with the tag attached. The tags are very important because they will have the family code written on it to be sure that the gifts go to the appropriate families.  I will contact participating families and distribute the gifts
          This is a confidential program. To inquire about participation, please call me at 503-916-6380 or talk to your child's teacher. During the weeks of Nov 12 - Dec 6th, check out the Season of Sharing bulletin board if you would like to fulfill someone's wish! Thank you for your care and concern for our school community.

  • Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

    Hello Families,
    We are very excited to see everyone again and meet new faces.  This will be our second year with the Wellness Center and we are looking forward to building on the success of the space from last year.  Please visit the link below to read more information on our Wellness Center, donations we will accept, and our new protocols for students.
    In addition to these positive changes, we also have exciting plans for our classroom guidance lessons this year and what we will be teaching all students.  We plan to push in for two 20 minute lessons each month per classroom to deliver the lessons.  Please visit our scope and sequence at the link below for an overview of the lessons for this year. 
    Last but not least, we will also be welcoming a new half time counselor, Shannon Nicolas, to our building.  Shannon is a fantastic School Counselor and is coming to us from a position at Alameda.  Our former half time counselor Ruth Tessema is moving on to a full time position at ACCESS Academy.  Congratulations Ruth!  In addition to Shannon joining us, we are also lucky to host a School Counseling intern Nathan Stein from Lewis & Clark.  Nathan Stein will be joining us two days a week for the school year!
    Thank you and see you all soon!

  • Welcome!

    Hello Woodstock families,
    Our goal is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that reaches all students' needs. We follow the ASCA Model that delivers three domains essential for student success: Academic, social/emotional, and career. Within these domains we strive to teach students self regulation skills and social skills that can promote their potential.  
    "School counselors design and deliver comprehensive school counseling programs that improve a range of student learning and behavioral outcomes. These programs are comprehensive in scope, preventive in design and developmental in nature. 'The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs' outlines the components of a comprehensive school counseling program. The ASCA National Model brings school counselors together with one vision and one voice, which creates unity and focus toward improving student achievement and supporting student development" (ASCA, 2017).
    Please check out our counseling website for more resources and newsletters.
