Principal’s Message to Parents and Students

Dear Parents and Students:

On behalf of the faculty and staff it is an honor and a privilege to welcome you to Woodland Park. Woodland Park has a proud tradition of providing students with excellent educational opportunities while partnering with parents and the community to raise the next generation. At Woodland Park, you will find caring adults who are committed to your children.

To provide the best education for our children, a partnership between parents and schools must exist. Woodland Park needs your help to fulfill our mission of providing an excellent education for our students. Please support our teachers by reading at least twenty minutes a day to your children and have conversations about what they are learning. Furthermore, please support our Parent Teacher Organization and the multitude of enriching events to take place throughout the year.

Woodland Park’s commitment to students stretches beyond the classroom. If you have concerns about your student please reach out to our teachers. However, we ask that conferences be scheduled by appointment. You are always welcome at Woodland Park.

Many changes have occurred at Woodland Park in preparation for the 2018-2019 school year. There are many new faculty and staff members who have joined the Woodland Park team. I am proud to join Woodland Park as principal. I am entering my twenty-third year in education and my administrative experience spans twelve years. This will be my seventh year as a principal. Furthermore, you will notice several changes to our building, The entire interior of the school has been painted, our floors have been refurbished, river rock has been added to our landscaping, our playground equipment is freshly painted, and the front parking lot is newly paved. We will hold on to the very best of our past as we move into the future.

A strong partnership between the school and parents will help ensure the academic and social growth of the students we share. The faculty and staff of Woodland Park will work hard to be the kind of school we would want our own children to attend. Best wishes to each student and family as the year begins.
