Literacy Connection at Woodland

posted May 14, 2017, 1:16 PM by David Lostetter   [ updated May 14, 2017, 1:17 PM ]

Our Literacy Connection program will be completed for the year on May 19th. Literacy Connection is a program in which volunteers were trained to work one-to-one with a kindergarten, first, or second grade student to reinforce reading/writing strategies. The following volunteers came in once or twice a week for 30-60 minutes to work with students. The volunteers were Woodland parents, former WL parents, a friend of a WL teacher, a WL grandparent, a WL neighbor, former WL students, and a retired WL teacher. We have volunteers who have served for several years with this program! A huge thank you to the following volunteers who served as Literacy Connection volunteers this year:

  • Bob Birk 
  • Dana Birk 
  • Eric Hansen 
  • Gaby Hanzel 
  • Wendy Holmin 
  • Erica Knipe 
  • Theresa Read 
  • Deb Shultz 
  • Susie Sunderland 
  • Jennifer Turner 
  • Christine Uhl 
  • Anna Wetschka 

If you are interested in becoming a Literacy Connection volunteer next year, look for signups at Open House in August or email Heidi Zimmerman, Literacy Connection Coordinator at heidi.zimmerman@district196.org.

Thank you to everyone who came out for the Spring Carnival; The Apex Fun Run is THIS WEEK!

posted Apr 30, 2017, 8:43 AM by David Lostetter   [ updated Apr 30, 2017, 8:45 AM ]

Thank you to everyone who came out for the Spring Carnival;

it was a fun and successful evening!  Between food, ticket sales and the Silent Auction, we are $8,200 closer to our annual fundraising goal of $50,000.

The Apex Fun Run is THIS WEEK!

The APEX FUN RUN kicked off this week.  The students and staff are really enjoying having the APEX team in the building.  Every day leading up to the May 5th run, the students are having mini-sessions with the APEX team that focus on character building and leadership skills.  This year's theme is LEGEND - Learn, Engage, Give, Empower, Never Quit, Do. The run is taking place on Friday, May 5 during the school day.  The funds raised from this event will be used for funding staff required for maintaining our current class sizes.  Our goal for this event is $15,000.  We appreciate and value every pledge made.

As always, thank you for all of your generous support!
