4.27.2020 A Note from Mrs. Hackmeyer: Middle School End of the Year Events and Plans

Dear Woodland Families,

It has been amazing to watch the academic, social, and spiritual growth of our students, especially over the past several weeks. It is hard to believe that we will be ending school without reconvening at the physical school building. As the 2019-2020 school year comes to an end, I am incredibly proud of the work the middle school teachers and students have put in to make this year the success that it has been. Our students have worked so hard to reach personal goals whether on the field, in the classroom, in a performance, on a class trip, or with remote learning. On behalf of the middle school staff, we thank you for your support, dedication, and commitment to Woodland’s mission and educational philosophy to grow each child through a challenging, yet supportive educational curriculum.

As we begin to plan for the end of the year, I want you to be aware of a few major dates/events.

•Month of May: Celebrating our Class of 2020

•May 4th: New Remote Learning schedule will be issued and will begin on May 6th

•May 6th - May 19th: Second semester review of skills/concepts (NO 2nd semester exams)
