    Greetings Wildcat Families!

    What an exciting and historical return from Spring Break to enjoy a solar eclipse on Monday, April 8th! We hope you enjoyed this moment with your family! We were excited to welcome our students back and in full swing to finish our second semester in a few short weeks! As we are rapidly approaching the final stretch of our school year, we extend our gratitude to you for your ongoing support and partnership to ensure our students experience success each day! Let’s finish strong!

    Please be reminded our school day begins at 7:40am. Students should be in their classrooms and ready for morning announcements at this time. Plan your morning routines to ensure consistency and provide your child with the best opportunities to get their school day started in a calm and timely manner!

    Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS)

    As we head towards the end of the school year, mandated testing will play a crucial role in assessing how much our students have learned throughout the year. One of those tests happening soon is the Georgia Milestones Assessment, which measures how well students have learned knowledge and skills in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students in grades 3 through 8 take an end-of-grade (EOG) assessment in each content area, while high school students will take an end-of-course (EOC) assessment for each of the courses designated by the State Board of Education, which counts for 20% of the students’ grade.

    Participation will be critical. The results will be used for College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) and other important school level and school system rankings.

    Please plan to have your child at school, on time, and ready for testing each day. We would like to have 95% or higher participation. The schedule for testing for students in Grades 3-5 is below:

    We look forward to seeing all the students arrive dressed in school uniform and ready to learn!

    Communication

    Every effort is made to ensure open communication between home and school. Teachers and parents should communicate regularly regarding questions or concerns that arise during the school year. To stay connected, please read all correspondence that comes home with your child and/or is sent electronically. It is extremely important that your email is up to date in Infinite Campus. Most of the communication from the school will be sent using the email address we have on file. You can update this information by logging into your parent portal account. We are committed to providing all stakeholders with clear and transparent communication. Please see below our forms of communication.

    • Principal’s Newsletter: a direct communication from the principal sent on Thursdays. Please be sure we have your email on file so that you will receive this communication.
    • PBIS Rewards helps you stay informed about what is happening in your child’s classroom. Each teacher will observe a quiet hour notification between the hours of 8:00am – 2:30pm, during instructional time. During this time, they will be unable to respond to messages. In most cases, you will receive a response within 24-48 hours.
    • Samples of Work are sent home to keep you updated on your child’s progress. All classroom teachers will send Thursday folders for graded work.
    • Infinite Campus/Parent Portal is available for you to monitor your child’s grades. We encourage you to utilize this system to stay current with your child’s progress. Usernames and passwords are valid from year to year for continuously enrolled students.
    • Written Notes: Most communication can be handled through written notes. Please be sure to let your child know that he/she has a note for the teacher.
    • Email: All teachers have county provided email addresses. Please note that teachers are not able to check email during instructional time. In most cases, you will receive a response.
    • Phone Calls: Teachers are unavailable to take phone calls during the instructional day. Please be aware that it may be late in the afternoon before your message is received and your call returned. In most cases, you will receive a response within 24-48 hours.
    • Conferences: We encourage regular communication to discuss your child’s progress at school. Conferences may be initiated by the parent, teacher, or administrator and held at a mutually agreeable time.
    • Website – the school website is https://www.fultonschools.org/woodlandes. Please visit our site regularly for the most current information and resources.

    Arrival and Dismissal

    • If your student is a car rider for dismissal, please remain in your car, for the safety of your students and staff members. Exiting your car to meet your child delays our ability to expedite the dismissal process and keep students and staff safe.
    • Our school day begins at 7:40 am and ends at 2:20 pm daily. Students may begin arriving at 7:00 am and should be in the classroom at 7:40 am. Students arriving after 7:40 will be marked tardy. Parents will need to escort their students in for check-in at the front desk if they arrive after 7:40 am. Let’s work together to establish a consistent, timely routine for your student.
    • If you are riding the school bus, please make sure you arrive at your bus stop at least 5 minutes before the pick-up time. Your bus information may be found at https://www.fultonschools.org/transportation.
