    Welcome Back Woodridge Families,

        I hope that you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer break. The summer planning team and I

    have been preparing exciting learning opportunities that support the Common Core Curriculum (CCSS)

    that will prepare our students to become College and Career Ready. I am excited to share a few

    initiatives that will support our goals for a successful school year.

        We will continue to cultivate a learning community that fosters independent learning, critical thinking

    and problem solving skills. Students will engage in learning opportunities where they will participate in

    classroom discussions and collaborate with peers through tasks and projects. We will have a laser focus

    on literacy across the curriculum, broaden academic vocabulary and build reading stamina. These are

    the tools that students will use to engage in rigorous instruction.

        There are several opportunities for you to learn more about our instructional programs and

    performance expectations in the upcoming weeks.

                   Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten orientation is scheduled for Thursday, August 31 st .

                   Back to School Night on Thursday, September 14 th at 6pm. Enjoy the rest of summer!

        If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at 240-696- 8837. I look forward to working with

    you and our students in making this an exceptional school year.

    Best Regards,

    Mrs. Viola Joyner
