Connect Via Class Dojo

  • Class Dojo Schoolwide Logo

    We want to connect with you via Class Dojo! Once a teacher sets up their class, they send parents special invites to connect to the Dojo classroom. Once you're connected to the teacher's classroom, you will be able to see Woodland's School Story, where important information is posted on a regular basis. If you have not received an email to connect to Dojo, please email your child's teacher.

  • Letter from the Principal

    November 17, 2022

    Greetings Wildcat Families!

    This season of the year reminds me of the spirit of gratitude we should exist in daily! John F. Kennedy once said, “as we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” I am indeed grateful for the Woodland Elementary School family! It brings me great joy to serve this amazing school community!

    As we prepare for the Thanksgiving Holiday Break, I extend to you my sincere gratitude for partnering with us in the academic and social -emotional development of your child. The staff and I do not take for granted the most precious gift you send to us each day! We wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

    Election Day: December 6, 2022

    The district has designated Election Day, December 6, 2022, as a remote workday for staff and digital learning day for students. Due to the anticipated high volume of voters coming onto district properties, all students and school-based and central office administrative staff will work remotely.

    Picture Retakes

    Picture Retakes will be on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, if you are interested in your child having a picture retake. You will receive a form on how to purchase the pictures when the proof comes back to the school. Please do not send money in with your child.

    Carpool Safety & Safety on School Grounds

    We have observed an increasing number of drivers violating the speed limit and basic safe driving practices on Spalding Drive and on our school campus. Our school police officer will begin to issue citations for repeat offenders. Please help us maintain a safe environment on our campus for students and others!

    Progress Report

    Your child’s 13.5-week progress report will be visible under the Reports Section in the Parent Portal, tomorrow, November 18, 2022. As you review your child’s progress, it is a good time to talk with them about the goals you set with them during our Academic Partnership Night at the beginning of the school year. You may access your Campus Parent account at the link  https://campus.fultonschools.org/campus/portal/parents/fulton.jsp.

    iReady Competition

    We are excited to announce our upcoming iReady Competition. iReady is an online program that helps us determine your child’s strengths and areas for growth, personalize their learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows us to meet your child where they are and provides us with data to inform instruction.

    We are encouraging students to engage in a minimum of 45 minutes of iReady Reading instruction and a minimum of 45 minutes of iReady Math instruction each week. Students have an opportunity to work on iReady at school and at home.

    Stay tuned for more details regarding the competition.

    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.
    • Pants: Navy or khaki shorts or pants. Shorts should be mid-thigh to knee length. Pleated or elastic waist pants are acceptable. Jeans, sweatpants, or tight leggings are not 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!

    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.

    • The Principal’s Newsletter is 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.
