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.

Newsletter Issue 4.9.21

Changes for In Person Learning on Monday (Only Posting)

It’s a short newsletter this week as most of the information I needed to pass along was in yesterday’s message.  If you were unable to read the information I sent out yesterday afternoon, you can read it all by clicking here.

Graduation Update (Final Posting)

By now, many of you probably saw Dr. Kroeze’s announcement that this year’s graduation will be held at noon on Sunday, May 30 at the GBN football stadium.  Over the past few weeks, there has been a great deal of conversation and our direction has changed on several occasions. The primary message that has been heard is to do all we can to get the Class of 2021 together for this rite of passage.  This stadium graduation is the best way for us to accomplish this based on our current constraints.  As our plans are finalized and guidance on crowd sizes develops, we will share all of that information with 8th grade families.  We know that holding this on Memorial Day weekend will present a challenge for many families, but this was the only day available for us to make this happen.  We are so excited at the idea of giving our soon-to-be graduates a proper send-off after a very challenging year.
