Back to School

It was a busy summer at Woodside School. We have been working on completing our NAEYC Classroom Portfolios that document all the learning that happens at Woodside each day. These portfolios are one part of the re-accreditation process that we are currently undergoing. Many hours have been spent organizing photos, writing descriptions, gathering documentation and thoughtfully reflecting on the work we do to prepare children to enter the larger community. We have all worked together to clean and organize the classrooms and plan for the upcoming weeks as we begin again. However, it wasn't all work this summer. Two pizza parties took place in order to provide families with an opportunity to reconnect and enjoy each others' company. Fun was had by all. Planning was also underway for our first annual Woodside 5K Walk/Run. We hope you will join us for this fun family event on November 1, 2009.

It is hard to believe that the Summer is fading and we are entering a new school year. We are looking forward to developing our classroom communities, reconnecting with all of our returning families and welcoming new families. It was a pleasure to see so many families at our orientation evenings and visiting days. We are happy to hear the sounds of children in our classrooms once again.

Welcome back!
