Re: WMS June 2021 Board Report

The following are the key happenings at Woodland Middle School:


Since we can’t host our normal talent show this year, we are doing it virtually. Jeff Flanagan, our leadership teacher is inviting students to submit brief videos displaying their talents. He will compile these videos into an end-of-year virtual talent display for teachers to show in their homeroom classes during the last week of school.


We will be inviting a small group of parents to our commons for a surprise recognition of this year’s Principal Award winners.  Normally, we recognize these students in an all-school assembly.  This year students will be announced virtually and then report to the commons.  Only 2-3 students are selected at each grade level so it is quite an honor.


We have recently completed most of our Acadience one-on-one assessments.  These results will help us place students in our reading interventions for the 21-22 school year.


  • ELL- We have invited about 50 students and have received about 20 confirmations.  We still have a steady stream of students bringing in paperwork daily.  We may have the opportunity to expand the invitation list depending on the volume of commitments.
  • Title I- We have invited about 45 students and have received 22 confirmations for attendance.  We are still in the process of recruiting and following up with parents.


We will be providing a free yearbook to all students in June rather than charging the normal fees.


We are wrapping up our knowledge bowl, track, and wrestling season next week.  

  • Knowledge Bowl-We had eight students participate in Zoom competitions versus Kalama and Ridgefield this year.
  • Track- We had 59 athletes participate this year with three in-person meets scheduled.  We had many new athletes and lots of personal bests.  Additionally, our girl's track team has dominated all season.
  • Wrestling- We had nine Athletes participate this year with three in-person wrestling matches, notching wins, and pins.
