Wood Oaks “Secret Sauce”

What makes Wood Oaks special? This past Tuesday, the Wood Oaks staff participated in our building-wide, after-school professional development session. We reviewed how Wood Oaks students are doing on several different measures, including being recognized as a Blue Ribbon school. Staff then worked collaboratively to identify the five "ingredients" that make Wood Oaks special –– the "secret sauce" that creates a great place for students to learn and teachers to grow professionally. Staff came to the conclusion that Wood Oaks has these five ingredients to success (in no particular order): we are systematic, a community, provide and have opportunities, are dedicated, and have heart. These are the “ingredients” that we strive for our Wood Oaks students to also possess. We could not be more proud of them!

LRIA Testing - Tuesday Morning

All Wood Oaks students will be taking the LRIA Reading assessment Tuesday morning. Please help to make sure your child charges their chromebook the night before, comes prepared with a set of wired headphones, and has a good night’s sleep. 

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conference registration is open. Parents and guardians were emailed registration credentials. If you have any questions about registering for the February 8th or 9th conferences, please contact the Wood Oaks office. All Wood Oaks conferences will be held virtually through Meet the Teacher. Registration will close on February 3, 2023.

Terra Nova Scores

Terra Nova student assessment reports will be shared with parents/guardians next week via School Messenger. We are using a new method for distributing the reports electronically and will not mail reports home. Please be on the lookout for an email from School Messenger for each child at Wood Oaks.

Class of 2023 Gowns & Diplomas

All 8th grade parents were emailed a link to a Google Form requesting information for graduation. We are requesting the height of each graduate in order to get the proper length gown for graduation. Parents are also given the opportunity to specify how they would like to have their child’s name printed on their diploma. Please complete this Google Form by February 3, 2023. 

Yearbook Ordering - Last Chance! 

Parents wishing to order a yearbook for their child can still place an order directly through Jostens. Please use the QR code found on the order form to place your order. No extra yearbooks will be available for purchase once ordering closes. Don’t miss the chance to have your child receive a yearbook at the end of this school year.
