Welcome back Woodruff Wolves to a great 2020-2021 school year!
Welcome to Frank E. Woodruff Elementary, a state of California Gold Ribbon and Title I Academic Achievement School. The goal of our school is to provide interactive teaching that incorporates Direct Interactive Instruction and focuses on student engagement throughout our instructional day. Students participate in lessons by being ready for random calling, engaging with partners, working with small groups, and volunteering to share.
Teachers focus on building mastery of concepts through the gradual release of responsibility and creating a community of learners. Our Response to Intervention program tailors instruction to the individual literacy needs of all students. Students are divided into small groups and literacy skills focus on letter identification, blending letters/sounds, decoding, academic vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and writing. We have interactive whiteboards in all classrooms, use mobile Chromebook carts, Transformer pads, and LearnPads in our daily instruction. At this time, all primary and upper-grade students have individual devices. Teachers and students effectively use technology to maximize instructional time. We thoroughly enjoy serving our community, providing quality instruction to our students, and leading them to become productive members of society through their experiences at Frank E. Woodruff Elementary, the Home of the Wolves.
