Parents and community members are invited to attend the Thursday, May 21st “Celebration of Learning Open House,” a special opportunity to learn more about – and to experience – the innovative education taking place at
Woodbury Elementary School.
Before the school year comes to a close, we wanted to provide an opportunity for the community to have an up close and personal look at a variety of learning experiences ranging from processes and procedures, games and manipulatives to independent learning projects. This educational culmination in academics and the arts features student work and student reflection on learning.
The 5:30-7:00 p.m. celebration will be infused with joy when students take pride in their work and share their achievements with the community. Our hope is that you take interest in student learning and feel free to ask questions. Students will be set up in various classrooms throughout the building and all guests will be invited to circulate through examining and interacting at all grade levels.
Classrooms look and feel different today than they did when you were in school. Please mark your calendars and be ready to come back to school and see all the great things kids today are learning.
Woodbury Elementary School would like to invite all incoming kindergarten children for a play based meet and greet on Thursday, June 4, 2015 from 8-9 a.m. This provides us with an opportunity to meet and to learn a bit about each child. Parents should bring their child to school for 8 a.m. and are invited to stay and attend a question and answer period and tour of the school with our principal while the children are with Ms. Gilcris.
If you have any questions, please call the school at 472-5715 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
In celebration of National Poetry Month, Galaxy Bookshop in
Hardwick put up poetry written and illustrated by the 5th and 6th grade class
from Woodbury Elementary!
All students were asked to think of a vivid memory or dream that
they could clearly picture in their mind and figure out how to recreate that
memory or dream using words. They were asked to use several literary techniques
including rhyme, sensory detail, alliteration, and onomatopoeia. Free verse was
perfect for this poem because it allowed students to really experiment with
format, structure, and length. You can see how different they all are.
Each poem also has an illustration with it. This is the visual
representation of the poem, designed to look like a photograph of the memory or
dream! We encourage all Woodbury families to stop in at the Galaxy Bookstore to
take a look at featured Woodbury student work.
Galaxy Bookshop is located on 41 Main
Street in Hardwick, and their hours are as followed:
