June letter from Principal Faber
If you remember at Back to School night, I mentioned to "stay tuned"
for all the amazing learning and community experiences this year
would bring us.
We have much to reflect and celebrate about! I am so proud of the
incredible work and growth of our students!
This year, we continued to build our community through our
school spirit days,family and community events.
We opened our "Hatch" where ideas are born and children are
provided the opportunity to challenge themselves
through design and engineering! We took on a whole school STEM
challenge to design the best egg helmet.
As a faculty, we learned with and from each other to improve
upon a teaching strategy of lesson closure.
It was a small change with great impact! We continued to improve
and audit our safety protocols.
We introduced BOKS where children are exercising their bodies,
before school, in preparation for the school day.
We sang together at the music concerts! We drank coffee
together at the many principal coffees where we chatted about
anxiety, safety, math and mindfulness!
We have been quite busy and all along you "stayed tuned" to what
was happening and important in the lives of your children.
I thank you for your dedication to the success of the
Woodland students, faculty and staff. We have built our
community together, we have succeeded together,
we have persevered together and we have grown together.
Together is a wonderful place to be as is Woodland!
