  • Lunch Forms for End of Year Picnic

    Dear Parents,

    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

    Thank you,

    Seth Johnson
    Principal

    Dear Woodstock Families,

    Thank you for participating in the Ride/Roll school event yesterday.  It was a huge success!

    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.

  • Message about Third Quarter Report Cards/Progress Reports

    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:

    • Seniors
    • Students who otherwise need a grade (i.e. eligibility for athletics or college applications)
    • Students in quarter classes
    • Students in danger of failing or whose behavior or achievement shows a significant decline
    • Special education students

    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.

Principal's Message

  • November 2016

    Dear Woodstock Families,
    Thanks for a great start to the school year!  It has been a full, fast, and fun first two months of school!  As of today, our school population is at 535 students.  This is an increase of 44 students from where we were at last year at this time.  It is wonderful to see so many new faces in our school!
     
    As we have grown this year, we have experienced some growing pains.  I'd like to thank our staff and parents for being flexible and with changes this year designed to decrease the learning distraction to students.  Considering our growing population and some unexpected facility issues, our students are doing AMAZING!  Thanks for your role in keeping the focus on learning. 
     
    As we move into the late fall and winter months at Woodstock, we look forward to continuing to work with you and your child(ren) to make their school experience positive and enriching.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child's education, please do not hesitate to contact us.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Seth Johnson, Principal
    Woodstock Elementary 
  • Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year!

    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:

    • Katy Vawter, Assistant Principal - With our growing student population, Woodstock has been assigned a new Assistant Principal for the first time as a K-5 school.  Ms. Vawter joined us mid-August and is preparing to support students, teachers, and parents/guardians through this school year.
    • Kylea Sundberg, Counselor (Halftime) - Mrs. Sundberg is also a new addition based on our growing population.  She will be working at Woodstock in the mornings alongside Mr. Kosmas supporting whole class guidance and small group work.
    • Rebecca Wilcox, Kindergarten Neighborhood Teacher - Ms. Wilcox was a temporary Neighborhood Kindergarten Teacher last year and has been officially hired for this year.  We are excited to have her back!
    • Lynette Diller, 1st Grade Neighborhood Teacher - Mrs. Diller joins us from Peninsula Elementary.  She comes with some strong experience in differentiation and is looking forward to working with the families of Woodstock!
    • Jamie Hillenberg, 3rd Grade English Immersion Teacher - Ms. Hillenberg brings a great teaming approach and technology skills to our school.  She is excited to work with her Immersion Teaching Partner and begin the school year.
    • Aron Steinke, 5th Grade Neighborhood Teacher - Mr. Steinke will be teaching 5th Grade and will be a strong addition to our 5th Grade Team.  He has some creative and “out-of-the-box” approaches to connecting with students and engaging them in learning.
    • Ali Borosky, ELL Teacher - Mrs. Borosky comes to Woodstock from Lent Elementary School.  With a background in both Reading Instruction and English Language Development, she will be a great addition to our school.

    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
    Woodstock Elementary

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    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.
