Dear Woodside Families:

 As we get ready to start the 2017-2018 school year, I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on last year’s learning.  We spent a great deal of effort on becoming a true learning community. This meant collectively learning and growing together.  We deepened our understandings of 21st century skills through various opportunities such as design thinking activities.

 Teachers studied what school characteristics and practices are most successful in helping our students achieve at high levels. We made commitments to adopt these characteristics and practices through developing innovative and meaningful learning experiences. This year will prove to be a continuation of this learning community.

 Students will engage in inquiry, problem-solving, and strategies. Teachers will continue to develop their craft of studying not only what students learn, but how they learn it. Together we will deepen students’ level of understandings and questioning. As a result, we will continue to create instructional plans that help every child reach success and thus love learning. We are not just an academic school, but an intellectual school.

Thank you for your partnership. I look forward to a year of growth and learning together.
