Welcome Spring! We hope that you and your family had a fantastic Spring Break, and we are looking forward to an incredible fourth quarter! We are proud of our students for their hard work this school year. Thanks to our wonderful faculty and staff members for preparing engaging lessons. Our students and teachers have been focused on our core business of teaching and learning all year long. With teaching and learning as a priority, our students are ready to soar. Now is not the time to let up, though, we must continue to help students remain committed to the goals set for each of them this year. Please join us in reminding our students that our fourth quarter of this school year is extremely important. Homework will be given and teachers will continue to assess your child’s progress.
Students across the state will take LEAP 2025, our standardized assessment, for ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science during the next few weeks. Fifth and fourth graders will take computer-based assessments from April 16 – May 1, 2018, and third graders will take the paper-based assessments from April 30 – May 4, 2018. Please make sure your child comes to school every day on time; attendance is so important. Teachers and students are confident about their test taking ability and understanding of the state standards. I am confident that the results will show the tremendous growth each student has made over the course of the school year. We analyze these results to focus on continuous improvement and to guide us with our core business of teaching and learning.
This year we will have our annual WWE Day on Friday, May 11th. We will be asking each grade level to donate different items. All Woodland West students will be allowed to participate in all of the fun activities for this day. More information will be coming home regarding this yearly activity.
We expect the best, and we know that our students are ready for the challenge. We continue to hold high expectations for our students’ learning and behavior. Your support and encouragement will surely help our efforts to make this 4th quarter a tremendous success for all of our students. Your support greatly enhances what we do each and every day at WWE!
