WEEKLY WOODCHUCK NEWS

Woodland Woodchucks Weekly Newsletter

June 2, 2021

 

The school year is quickly coming to an end. This year has been a challenging one, but with everyone’s help and practicing safer measures we can feel good about keeping our school open for all but two weeks being remote. Thumbs up to everyone.

 

We have several activities planned for the next 3 ½ days which are subject to change due to the weather or unpredicted circumstances. These activities due to COVID will be closed to staff and students only. Our end of the year awards night will be held on Wednesday, June 2nd, during the school day for students to attend. Thursday, June 3rd, will be the school BBQ and coin carnival, again for staff and students only.

 

As the school year comes to a close, please make sure your child’s outstanding lunch bill is a zero balance.

       

The Woodchuck apparel is almost ready for pick-up. We are hoping to get it by Friday for distribution.

       

Next Tuesday is an early release at 11:45 and the last day of school.

 

Last call to avoid the summer slump with Lexia. Lexia is a research-proven computer program that provides learning in six areas of reading instruction.

 

Typically the Lexia Core5 program has been available to selected students because only fifteen licenses were available. However, this spring Lexia is offered to us on an unlimited number of licenses to use for free until July 31. Lexia Core5 is best suited for students up to grade 5 or for students who are currently working below their grade level. 

 

If your child wishes to continue their progress in this reading program, please contact Debbie Fowler (Title 1 teacher) at debbie.fowler@schoolunion122.net for additional information.

 

Also, thank you to all the parents who participated in the Title 1 Parent Meeting by Zoom. If you haven’t already returned the exit survey, please do so as soon as possible. If you attended the meeting, your child will bring home your door prize later this week.

 

Note from the School Nurse:  I want to thank all of the Students and Parents for being so cooperative this year, during very difficult circumstances. We couldn’t have had in person instruction as often as we have without all of you. You have been wonderful to work with, and I wish you a safe and amazing summer vacation!
