Sign Up for Conferences Online

Goal Setting Conferences for Mrs. Dyer's Kindergarten class will take place on Saturday, August 24th and Monday, August 26th 

I am making Saturday conference slots available to help accommodate our parents who work full-time and cannot easily step away for a mid-day / mid-week meeting (please be aware that this is only an accommodation that I happen to offer; it is not an accommodation that the whole school or other teachers might be able to offer if you have children in other grade levels). 

We will discuss your child's strengths and areas of focus, and together, create a plan for your child's success. Please choose the time that works best for you and click on "Sign Up."

PLEASE be on time to your assigned date/time. Missing your conference slot or arriving late can impact the rest of the day's schedule for other families, and it is very difficult to reschedule. 

Type in your child's first and last name in the "My Child's Name" slot.

Please sign up online for your preferred date and time. Conferences are about twenty minutes. 

 

Kindergarten Wish List

20090831-5.jpg

An old African proverb once said, "It takes a village to raise a child," and that indeed still reigns true today. Please consider selecting an item off our classroom wish list to donate. Many times, parents have asked me what they can bring in to support learning in the classroom, and it’s always difficult to think about it on the spot. And so, another parent suggested I make an ongoing wish list for those times when I realize our kids could really benefit from certain school supplies and learning toys.

Items on our wish list are things we could always use in our classroom to help things run smoothly. Items from this list are completely optional, but we do use them routinely for various activities. Please keep us in mind and feel free to send in any of these items throughout the year. Wish list items also make great options as a class gift for student birthdays! Your gift will help benefit and provide countless children great joy for years and years to come! Again, our class greatly appreciates any donations! THANK YOU!

My SchoolBucks

My SchoolBucks is a website that will allow our Woodbury parents to make classroom supply fund donations, field trip donations, lunch account additions, and yearbook purchases. 

Sign up for an account for your family and add your student's name to update account funds. This is an easy way for parents to complete school funds online, but if you prefer cash and check methods, those will still be accepted as well.

"Outrageous expectations should be standard."

A few years ago, I attended a meeting at the district office where I had an opportunity to review the founding leadership principles of Dr. Stan Corey, who served as IUSD's first superintendent from 1972 - 1987. One of his principles included "Outrageous expectations should be standard" which resonated with me because I set high expectations for my students. Despite being just four and five years old, Room 2's Kindergarteners are held to very high standards, and slowly mature and grow to live up to those high standards. I fully believe that when held to high standards, children will rise to the occasion, and may even surprise you with their maturity and decision making skills. By the end of the school year, you will most definitely see a great change in your children for the better. It's a slow and steady process, but well worth the effort!

Join the PTA!

The PTA Website is a great way to stay connected with all of the exciting things that are taking place at our school!  On the website, there will be a main information page, calendar of events, and other important information/documents pertaining to the PTA. The exciting part is that when you register, you will be able to buy spirit wear, make your pledge & membership donations, sign up for volunteer opportunities for each event, and will be sent our monthly newsletters or emails directly from the website. It is a one stop shop!  So don't wait, register today!

Parent Volunteers Sign-Up Form

Truly, our Woodbury teachers greatly value our parent volunteers. We just simply couldn't do it all without your help. Volunteers save us hours of filing, copying, grading, laminating, cutting, gluing, folding, etcetera, so that we can focus our time and energy towards planning and teaching. Additionally, our volunteers that work directly with the students during small group rotations make such a powerful impact on student learning. You may never realize how much of a difference you make, but your dedication certainly shows through the students' academic growth. Please consider signing up to be a volunteer for Room 2 (the children love seeing their parents on campus). If there are multiple volunteers from one family (i.e. both mom and dad; dad and grandma, etc.), please fill out the form for each volunteer to account for each volunteer's availability. Please sign up to be a parent volunteer online!

With a grateful heart, Mrs. Dyer
