Hello Woodridge Families,
I hope you all are having a wonderful summer. I know it's only been a
week, but I already miss your kids' smiling faces. I hope they are enjoying
sleeping in a little later, playing out in the sun with friends and family, and
taking it easy. Don't forget to encourage them to read each day to keep their
already awesome skills growing.
Our School Supply List link
for the upcoming 2016 school year is now live. Rather than sending it
home with report cards on the last day, we wanted to make sure it was completely
accurate and up-to-date so parents can use it to find great deals over the
summer. You should notice that this year's supply list is a district list that
is consistent across all schools (other than the quantity of a few specific
supplies). The K-2nd grade list consists solely of gym shoes and a backpack.
We will be providing everything else that will be used in our primary classes.
You should also notice that the 3rd-6th grade lists are shorter than in previous
years and no longer include basics like tissue, crayons, glue, pencils, markers
and scissors. Our state is now providing additional funds to districts to help
fund some of these basic supplies. I hope you will find this year's list much
more manageable and affordable as you prepare your child for next school
Be on the lookout in late August for class placement postcards.
Also, here are the dates for our Open House events.
Kindergarten: August 28, 4:00-5:00 pm
3rd-5th grades: August 28, 5:00-5:45 pm
6th grade: August 28, 5:45-6:45 pm
1st and 2nd grades: September 9th, 6:00-7:00 pm
Have a great summer.
