  • Letter from the Principal

    September 29, 2022

    Greetings Wildcat Families!

    This year all Fulton County second and fourth grade students will participate in the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessment. Your child will participate in six testing days in October. Please ensure that your child is on time for school and gets a good night’s rest to ensure the best possible testing environment. The MAP is a computer-adaptive test. Students will be assessed in English Language Arts and Math. This assessment measures what the students know, regardless of their grade level. Please visit this link for detailed information about the assessment and what it measures. https://cdn.nwea.org/docs/Family+Guide+to+MAP+Growth.pdf. Thank you in advance for ensuring your child arrives on time ready for this assessment.

    Georgia PreK Week

    Georgia’s Pre-K Week emphasizes the importance of quality early childhood education by providing opportunities for leaders to engage with Pre-K classrooms in local communities. This year, Georgia’s Pre-K Week will be held October 3 – 7, 2022. Each child enrolled in a Georgia Pre-K classroom will receive his/her own copy of the new book, Hey, Georgia by Malcolm Mitchell. We are so fortunate to have two wonderful teachers, Ms. Barnes and Mrs. Sharp, leading our Pre-K classes at Woodland!

    Georgia’s Pre-K program was the first state-funded and universal program in the country. Georgia is one of eight states and D.C. that provides high quality care to more than 50 percent of 4-year-olds. Launched 11 years ago, Georgia Pre-K Week celebrates Georgia’s nationally recognized Pre-K program, which has educated approximately 1.6 million of Georgia’s youth since it began in 1992.

    Georgia Pre-K Week is organized each year by Bright from the Start, the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning and Voices for Georgia’s Children and supported by more than 20 child-focused partner organizations.

    Road Closure Notification

    Beginning Monday morning, October 3, 2022, Spalding Drive will be closed between the traffic signal at Chamblee Dunwoody Road and Dunwoody Road. Work hours will typically be from 7:30am to 5:30pm. Once construction begins, the road will be temporarily closed for approximately 6 weeks. Southbound and northbound traffic on Spalding will be re-directed to Dunwoody/Chamblee Dunwoody Road with electronic message boards and signage. If you have any questions, please direct them to the City of Dunwoody: Construction@dunwoodyga.gov.

    We know that our school enrollment and one-way in/one-way traffic flow places a strain on arrival and dismissal times. Please begin to prepare for this change in your routine. Our transportation department is in communication with the City of Dunwoody to ensure we will have minimal disruption to our bus arrival and departure times. When students arrive at school via the school bus, they are never marked tardy. School arrival and dismissal times will remain the same.

    National Custodial Workers Recognition Day

    National Custodial Workers Recognition Day is Monday, October 2, 2022! We are so fortunate for our amazing team, Roberto Mendez, Gordon Mohn, Cira Atencio, Mayerling Perozo Valbuena, and Hal Henderson! They make Woodland shine every day and they connect with our students and staff! We appreciate them keeping our school clean and safe!

    Student Safety

    As we approach the upcoming holidays, it is important to remind parents and families that candy, desserts, baked goods (store bought/homemade), or any other edible items are not to be sold or distributed at school or on the bus unless approved in advance by school administration. Per our Student Code of Conduct, students who do not adhere to this expectation are subject to disciplinary action for violation 7A: Failure to Follow Rules and all candy or food items will be confiscated. Please discuss this expectation and possible consequences with your student(s) as this will be taken very seriously. This is due to recent national and state reports about students sharing edible items and synthetic medications with other students that contain very harmful substances.

    Please know that taking this measure will help us maintain a safe environment for all students. You can help us protect your student(s) by requesting that they not eat anything given to them by another person, anything that they have not brought from your home or anything not in its original sealed package.

    Thank you for your continued partnership in keeping all of our students safe at school!

    Volunteer Opportunity

    Are you interested in participating as a once-a-month volunteer at Woodland? We have an opportunity for you to assist with prep and set-up for STEM activities for multiple groups and grade levels. The first volunteer opportunity will be on October 26th. For more information, please email Ms. Foster, at fosterqr@fultonschools.org.

Parents and students are able to sign for receipt of our Student Code of Conduct using our digital signature process.

    Important Information

    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.

    Birthday Celebrations

    Our Cafeteria may provide, at a cost to the parent, frozen treats, $1.00 each for your child and their class. All treats are big 9 allergen-free, unless indicated. There are a variety of flavors and a non-dairy option. The birthday treat meets USDA requirements for smart snacks in school, and the Cafeteria Staff delivers it to your child’s class for all to enjoy!! Be sure to signup and pay for this convenience through our cafeteria.

    Uniform Policy

    All students wear the Woodland uniform. Please see the details below about the uniforms:

    • Shirts: Collared shirt, long-sleeved or short, with or without the Woodland logo. The colors are red, white, or navy. Turtlenecks are acceptable.

Girls may also wear navy or khaki skirts, skorts, or jumpers, provided they are mid-thigh to knee length. During colder months, tights of uniform color (red, white, or navy blue) may be worn underneath skirts.
    • Shoes & Socks: Closed-toed athletic (sneakers) with red, white, or navy socks will ensure that students are properly dressed for P.E. and recess. Shoes should be in neutral colors, such as black, brown, or white. Small colored accents are acceptable but should not be the primary color of the shoe.
    • PE: Athletic style shoes are required for PE. Students will not be allowed to participate in PE if they are not wearing appropriate shoes and their grade may be negatively impacted by failure to participate.
    • Accessories: Purses, caps, headphones, etc. are not permitted at school unless authorized by the principal or teacher.

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