In order to provide professional development training to all staff with the least amount of disruption to our instructional program, we selected Wednesday, August 24th as an ideal training date before the school year starts.
The staff celebrated the last day of school wearing special socks. Mrs. Ekman bought the staff matching Woodcrest socks to show school spirit! The staff looked great in their red socks! Be sure to look for those cool socks next school year.
Mrs. Irving's and Mrs. Barcinas's classes explored the anatomy of a dogfish shark through dissection. They would like to thank all of the parent volunteers who participated. They couldn't have done it without you! Click on the headline to see additional pictures.
