Woodland Families,


Even though the calendar says October, the weather sure isn’t complying. The district provided loaner fans and brand new fans for each classroom during the third week of school.   The staff would like to thank one of our dads, Shannon Bales, for his help in putting the majority of the fans together and also donating class sets of bottled water to classrooms during the very hot weather!  The good news is that the students seem to be settled into their classrooms and it’s evident when visiting each room that students are happy and engaged in their learning.


Before school started on August 27th, all teachers in Newport-Mesa participated in a Close Reading training.  From the training, teachers learned the importance of having students:

  • Engage with a text of sufficient complexity

  • Examine meaning thoroughly and methodically

  • Read and reread text

  • Understand the central ideas and key supporting details of the text

    And reflect on:

  • the meanings of individual words and sentences

  • the order in which sentences unfold

  • the development of ideas over the course of the text

  • Ultimately arriving at an understanding of the text as a whole

    Of course the training was geared toward the level of students at each grade level by having each grade level trained at a different site within the district.  There will be one more training on Close Reading taking place on Monday, November 3rd, a student free day.


    We had a terrific Back to School Night on September 18th.  Thank you everyone for attending this important evening.  We’re looking forward this month to our kinders going to Tanaka Farms and coming back with their interesting pumpkins, Healthy Choices Week and our Annual Costume Parade on Friday, October 31st.


    Lastly, we had a very special parent volunteer last Friday.  Principal Sean Boulton volunteered in both Mrs. Baldikoski and Mrs. Fredriksson’s classes for an hour each.  How special is that for his twins!  On that note, thank you to all of our volunteers who take time out to volunteer in our classrooms.  Your time is appreciated.

Pyramid of Success

Pyramid of Success

Woodland's character education program is based on Coach John Wooden's book, Inch and Miles - The Journey to Success. Throughout the journey, Inch and Miles find out the real meaning of success by meeting fourteen characters in the story who represent the values that will guarantee success. By the end of the journey, Inch and Miles understand that:

Success isn't having trophies or toys.

It isn't a medal or friends of your choice.

What is Success? That's easy to see.

It's trying to be the best that you can be!

Don't worry what others may have or might say.

When trying your best,

Success comes your way.

Thank you Coach John Wooden for allowing us to share your Pyramid of Success with our students.
