It has been a busy summer so far! Our team is hard at work getting the school ready for our opening, beginning with our Open House on August 28th (4 – 6 PM). In just a few weeks’ time, the Woodsdale School has gone through quite a transition, with many thanks to the hard-working custodial staff who have moved 5th & 6th grade out, moved 3rd & 4th grade in from BBES, cleaned, repaired, and reconfigured many of the spaces in the school.
We are all very excited about the new beginning for the Woodsdale School. In addition to new school leadership, the Woodsdale team will have three new educators: Casey Widmann and Sheila Kelleher will be joining our 3rd grade staff and we will be adding a new Special Education teacher to our staff as well. Our focus will continue to be the academic and social-emotional learning of our students, with help from a school-wide focus on Responsive Classroom’s Morning Meeting and our district’s new Reading series, Wonders.
We’ll have many new and exciting additions to share with the Woodsdale community throughout the year and there are many ways to get involved- school council, PTO, volunteering for school events or to help in classrooms. See you soon!
