Grade Level PE

IMG_6658.JPG

Every year, Woodbury students love Grade Level PE! This is a program that is led by our PE Paraprofessional staff. They teach our children important gross motor skills by leading various stretches, games, relays, obstacle courses, and exercises. The kids always love playing the games, and the staff is great at keeping the kids engaged while exercising to stay healthy. 

Please be sure your child wears comfortable closed-toe shoes everyday for their safety, and especially on Grade Level PE days. We will have Grade Level PE every Monday from 1:55 pm to 2:40 pm, and your child will especially need good sneakers to run in, a water bottle (with their name on it), and sunscreen as necessary. If your child is ever injured or doesn't feel well enough for PE, please be sure to send a written note or email requesting an excusal. 

Typically, PE is done outside on the field. If the weather is too hot, then PE is done in the multi-purpose room. 

Backpack Tags

In the Conduits, you will find a small backpack tag for your child. Please neatly complete the tag to help the teachers know if your child goes home with mom, dad, grandparents, babysitters, etc. on various days. If your child attends CDC or Kid's Club after school, please circle the days that your child should be sent with CDC or City of Irvine staff. Return the completed tag in the Conduit so that it can be laminated, hole punched, and tied onto your child's backpack. See sample below. 

"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!

Kindergarten Parent Orientation

Parent Orientation will take place on the first day of school, Wednesday, July 11th. Please plan on dropping off your child at 10:20 am at the Room 2 door, then head over to the Courtyard to enjoy some breakfast treats and coffee sponsored by our Woodbury PTA. At about 10:50, please meet in the MPR (multi-purpose room) to meet Mrs. Dyer and Mrs. Ruiz and to learn about Kindergarten procedures and expectations. You will receive an orientation brochure and a kindergarten packet at the orientation. 

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.

Hello Parents and Students,

Our first day of school will be on Wednesday, July 11th. I am busy preparing the classroom for all of our new Kindergarten students, and I am looking forward to meeting all of you! We hope you are enjoying this last weekend before school begins. Kindergarten will be a wonderful year!

Love, Mrs. Dyer

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
