Principal's Newsletter

Welcome to the Wood Oaks Newsletter.  This is my primary means of disseminating information to families, so please check back often.  I generally update this page once a week, usually on Fridays, but will occasionally put out a mid-week issue if there is information to share that cannot wait for the weekend.  To subscribe to this newsletter, click on the orange bell below, click on the newsletter, and fill out the pop-up form.

Substitute Teachers Needed (First Posting)

Virtual Backpack (New Posting)

This is just a friendly reminder that there is always some excellent information contained in our Virtual Backpack regarding programs and presentations in the community around us.  Right now, there is information about spring sports leagues in the community and a presentation from the Glenview/Northbrook Coalition for Youth about Adolescent Depression. I know depression is an area of concern for many adolescents during this time of isolation due to the pandemic and GNCY sponsors many very useful presentations like this one. Please visit the Virtual Backpack to read about these items and several others.
