Welcome to Woodrow Wilson Elementary School!

 As we begin a new school year, teachers are establishing school standards and rules.  In the most successful classrooms, teachers have established specific routines for the children to follow.  This means giving the children a specific place to find and keep materials, a set schedule for classroom instruction, etc.  These routines, blended with the teacher’s consistent standards, form a smooth running classroom where the children have the security of understanding their environment and are reinforced positively for their contributions.

  This year, our school will make significant strides towards moving forward with the new Common Core Standards. Teachers will be encouraging high levels of student engagement, communication and collaboration during class. Our students will be asked to think critically and creatively in solving problems and performing meaningful learning tasks. Our goal is to ensure that our students are ready to move forward in their education and later into their careers with skills that will translate into success in the 21st century workplace.

     At home, it is also important to provide routines.  Many families build a daily “quiet time” when the television and video games are turned off.  This quiet time provides students the opportunity for completing schoolwork or for recreational reading if there is no homework.  During this quiet time a suitable place, somewhat free of other distractions, should be available.  The routine of a daily quiet time provides an opportunity to develop self-discipline, stimulate imagination, and enhance reading skills.

   Administrators and teachers everywhere recognize the important contributions parents make toward a child’s success in school.  There is no question about it - success at school begins at home.  Parents are the single most important variable in a child’s schooling.  Parents model both a silent and spoken language in front of their children daily. One of the most important components of a good school is the partnership between the school and parents who work together for the best interest of children.

    As children grow and learn, they find joy and satisfaction in working closely with their families toward a common goal.  Such is the case with the students at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School.  Commitment to the best for our children on the part of parents, students and staff is the key to our success with the children we teach.  It is the hope of the staff that all parents will help us fulfill this commitment to excellence on behalf of all children at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School.  School and home can work together to build skills and knowledge, reinforce values, and develop a strong sense of self worth.  We must invest our time and energies in our nation’s most valuable resource - OUR CHILDREN.
