Principal's Newsletter

Dear Woodland Parents:
 
Welcome back to the 2014-2015 school year!  Once again Woodland experienced a smooth opening due to the hard work of the Woodland staff!  Our enrollment this year is up just a little to approximately 525 students. Please help us welcome our three new staff members– Michele Hardee (Kindergarten), Narissa Cardoza (Speech and Language) and Carolyn Hanson (Kindergarten Music). We will also be hiring a two-day credentialed science teacher for grades one and two paid for by the Kaiser-Woodland Schools Foundation in the near future.  Thank you Foundation!
 
Our goal this year is to ensure that every student attends school regularly. Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.
 
We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But, we also know that when students miss too much school— regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically.  Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent—which means missing 18 or more days over the course of an entire school year. Research shows:    
 
• Children chronically absent in kindergarten and 1st grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade.  
• By 6th grade, chronic absence is a proven early warning sign for students at risk for dropping out of school.  
• By 9th grade good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.  
 
Absences can add up quickly.  A child is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month!!  Clearly going to school regularly matters!
 
We don’t want your child to fall behind in school and get discouraged.  Please ensure that your child attends school every day and arrives on time.   Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:
 
• Make sure your children keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
• Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
• Ensure your children go to school every day unless they are truly sick
• Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
• Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your children feel anxious about going to school.
• Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up.  Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your child to school.
 
Let us know how we can best support you and your children so that they can show up for school on time every day.   We want your child to be successful in school!

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.
