• Message from the Principal

    Dear Woodruff Families

    As we approach Thanksgiving I would like to take a moment to share how grateful I am to be part of the Woodruff Family. I enjoy watching our Woodruff Scholars learning something new every day.

    Earlier this year, you had the opportunity to conference with your child’s teacher.  On November 9th, you will receive your child’s first-trimester report card. This is a wonderful opportunity to take some time to sit down together with your child and discuss strengths and challenges and develop new goals for the 2nd trimester.  Review the report card and visit the California standards which can be found online on the Sacramento Office of Education County website (just click on this link). Together with your child, develop specific goals and create a plan to achieve those goals. Helping your child identify his or her academic strengths and areas for improvement can help them take responsibility for their own learning and success.

    Remember, that your child’s teacher is always available to assist you in helping them master the grade level standards. They are here to assist in helping your student become a successful learner while providing you with the support and materials you need. Please feel free to contact them if you have any questions.

    Wishing you joyful holidays!

    Sincerely,

    Evelyne Almada, M.Ed.

    Principal

     

    Message from the Counselor 

    To our  Wolves!

    This year at Woodruff Elementary we will be teaching our students about Growth Mindset. Growth Mindset is the belief that every student can achieve success through dedication and hard work. Students who embrace a Growth Mindset believe they can learn more and become smarter if they work hard and persevere. They view challenges and failures as opportunities to improve their learning and skills. Here are a few ways students can begin to develop of Growth Mindset in the classroom:

    Instead of saying…   I give up!

    Try saying…              I will use a different strategy.

    Instead of saying…   I can’t make this any better.

    Try saying…              I can always improve.

    Instead of saying…   This is too hard.

    Try saying…              This may take some time.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

    Stay Positive and make wise choices,

    Ms. Bond, School Counselor

  •  Physical Education Class

    P.E. will be EVERY Monday and Thursday and EVERY OTHER Wednesday

    I am so excited to be teaching physical education at Woodruff another year! I take pride in providing my K-6 students with a standards-based curriculum that supports the goals of improved physical, social, and mental development and encourages a lifelong interest in health and fitness. In P.E., we will also work on being outstanding team players, showing great sportsmanship, and using kind, encouraging words to create a positive atmosphere. I cannot wait to

    see everyone’s smiling faces!   

    -Coach Dolliver

             Room 41

    On P.E. Days, students should wear shoes with laces and comfortable clothes. They are encouraged to bring a labeled bottle as well. Hydration is key, especially on warm days!

    On extremely hot or rainy days P.E. will be held indoors.

    Physical Education is a required class.

    Students may not opt-out of participating.

    K-3rd grades are based on PARTICIPATION

    4th-6th grades are based on PARTICIPATION, SPORTSMANSHIP and

    SKILL  IMPROVEMENT

    Per the district, students with a short-term medical condition MUST present a dated and signed note from a parent. Students with a medical condition that lasts longer than 3 days MUST present a dated and signed DOCTOR’S note.

    Successful participation aligns with the school expectations that each student will demonstrate honesty,    ownership, willingness, and leadership.
