Re: October Review

Here is an overview of the key activities we worked on in relation to teaching and learning this month.

Monday’s and October 9th: We used our Monday’s and all day on Monday, October 9th for School Improvement work and department collaboration.  The school improvement work is going quite well and we are now working our school improvement plan.  You will see a major change in our conference schedule and plan for Thursday, November 16th.  One of our school improvement teams is charged with increasing parental engagement.  Therefore, we are going to change up our plan for conference night and try to make it more likely that we would have parents attend.  Stay tuned for our new “Woodland Connects” event on November 16th

Other information:  Homecoming was another successful week at the high school.  A special thanks to Mr.Uhlenkott, Mrs. Conditt and Mr. Woodward for all of their organizational work in making this a fun and safe event for our staff and students.  Also, our @WoodlandHSstars kids from Instagram are continuing to highlight new students almost every day and doing an excellent job.  This year, we are putting those “posts” up on the TV’s in the school and we are getting excellent feedback from students who enjoy seeing the featured students.  A special congratulations to Mary Ellen Vetter and her floral students for recently sweeping the 1st and 2nd place scholarships in an event that was featured on KGW recently.  And finally, I wanted to point out that Centralia HS has come back for a third visit as they are planning on their new school construction.  They are so impressed with many aspects of our building that they have brought three different teams, including their architects to gather ideas. 

All in all, it was a good productive month at Woodland High School.
