"JA In a Day" Brings Financial Literacy to Students

 On June 1, 2018, Woodlin students were treated to a day of financial literacy with projects, games, cooperative learning, and some new vocabulary, thanks to Junior Achievement of Greater Washington and parents who served as financial literacy teachers in the classrooms. Thanks to parent Jeff Allum for coordinating this!

Students Recognized for Star Behavior at January 8 Town Hall Meeting

More than two dozen Woodlin students were recognized by their teachers and Principal Jackson at an all-school Town Hall meeting today. These students showed respect, practiced safety, tried their best, and acted responsibly in specific, demonstrable ways. Mr. Jackson said that all of us at Woodlin take pride in our behavior and that how we act makes a difference. Photograph below shows Ms. Lambert with her first grade students who were recognized for star behavior.

Donate Clean Blankets to Shepherds Table: January 2018

Bring in a clean, nice blanket and put it in the donation box in the front hallway. These will be donated to Shepherd's Table, a local homeless shelter. "If somebody does not have a friend to play with then play with them," and, "smile at someone to make there day grate." (spelling/grammar errors of students are not corrected for this entry)


  Our students, staff, and parents all work together to support the school community and the larger community. We participate in food drives and donation drives for disasters because we care and want to strengthen our relationships in the world. Poster below shows Girls on the Run call for donations to support Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Photo, below right: second graders made and gave away paintings on rocks and also posted "to-do" kind acts on post-it notes on their bulletin board.

What's New with Grading?

 
Montgomery County Public Schools revised the elementary school grading system this year. According to the MCPS website, "The revisions are designed to more clearly convey student learning and provide additional information about learning skills or work habits. The change reflects input from parents, school staff, and community." 
 
To summarize:
--Students in Grades 2-5 will have A, B, C, D grades.
--Kindergarten students will get a report card four times (instead of twice) per year.
--Includes overall subject grade (in addition to the end-of-year average and measurement topics per marking period).
--Includes reporting of key learning skills.
