Principal's Message

Tardies are becoming a big problem at Woodland: Several studies have shown that school tardiness has a negative impact on learning outcomes.  By the mere nature of arriving late and missing school hours, students receive fewer hours of instruction than students who are in class when the bell sounds.  Not only does a student who is consistently arriving late to school establish bad punctuality habits, their tardiness also disrupts the learning of other students in their classes.  Students who are frequently late to school often miss out on important opening announcements and academic activities.  Teachers can become frustrated as late students disrupt instruction, often requiring reteach of what they have missed.  Woodland is a very busy place in the morning, leave yourself a few extra minutes.  Come join us on the playground, it’s full of students playing and parents and grandparents connecting as a community.  Let's work together to ensure our students are here on time and ready for the day!

Every day counts: Most people agree that kids need to regularly attend school in order to succeed.  Yet absenteeism is a growing problem at Woodland.  Some school absences are unavoidable - kids get sick or there may be a family emergency or other important reason for missing school.  But parents may not always realize how much school their child is missing.  Missing two days each month doesn’t always seem like a lot but that’s all it takes for a child to be considered chronically absent.  Chronic absences keep kids from getting the consistent instruction they need to build on basic skills.  Parents may think that if their child does the class work at home, it doesn’t matter that he missed the instruction.  They may also believe that regular attendance isn’t as crucial in the earlier grades.  Because of that, parents may be less hesitant to keep their child home from school.  Missing school in the early grades can have a snowball effect.  It sets kids up to fall behind in the foundational skills they need in order to move on to more complicated work.  In addition, each day of learning builds on the previous day.  When kids miss a few days in a row it can be hard to follow subsequent lessons.  Research shows how great the impact can be, a study in California looked at kids who were chronically absent in both kindergarten and first grade.  By the end of third grade, only one in six of them were proficient readers of the kids who missed less than 5 percent of school two-thirds were proficient.  Another study looked at kids who were chronically absent in kindergarten.  In later grades, they scored 20 percent lower than their peers in reading and math.  For some kids, frequent absences can become a long-term habit.  Research shows that kids who are allowed to miss school when they are in primary grades are more likely to skip school when they’re older and that can lead to other consequences.  It’s nearly impossible to avoid all absences and missing a few days during the year shouldn’t have a lasting impact on your child’s learning and progress.  Still, it’s easy for those days to
add up.  That’s why it’s important to keep track of how many days your child is actually missing.  Thank you for your


Ms. Lewis

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.
