New students (along with their families) entering kindergarten this fall gathered at Woodland Middle School to learn more about the new experiences they would have as they embark on their academic journeys.
Superintendent Michael Green, Columbia Elementary School Principal Ingrid Colvard and North Fork Elementary School Principal Denise Pearl greeted the students and answered any questions they had about the upcoming year.
Jody Brentin, the district’s registrar, was on-hand to help students register while KWRL staff signed students up for transportation. KWRL even offered bus rides so young students could familiarize themselves with what it’s like to ride a school bus before doing it on the first day of school.
Representatives from the Woodland Co-Op Preschool, Parent-Teacher Student Association (PTSA), Student and Family Support Services and the schools’ nurses were on-hand to give families information about the different services offered in Woodland.
The Woodland Public Library and Fort Vancouver Regional Library (FVRL) passed out free copies of the book “Clifford Goes to Kindergarten” in both English and Spanish so nervous first-time students could learn more about what it’s like to go to school.
