News and Events For This Week
Dear West Woodland Families,
One of the great traditions of West Woodland Elementary is our Kindergarten Heritage Float Parade! It is so much fun to see the projects of each one of the kindergartners worked on to show their family heritage. We have so many countries represented; even Seattle got a few floats this year. Well done kindergarten students!
Thank you to Michele Farnung and Ivonne DePauli for doing all the hard work to put this all together! We also appreciate any and all who jumped in to volunteer, make decorations, or help their children create flags. It is going to be a great event!
I hope your weekend is wonderful,

The second story comes from Ms. Phelps and Ms. Loveness. We have been grateful and appreciative of the volunteer work that some students have done on their own time. We had 5 boxes of materials that needed sorting and grouping. In all the students spent at least 6 recesses helping with this project. We appreciated their compassion for recognizing that we did not have time to do this task. They held themselves accountable by coming into the office without being asked.
These are the "stories" that are read by 4th/5th grade students over the intercom on Wednesday mornings. This is one of the many ways we work to reinforce our I CARE Values at West Woodland.
