Woodruff Spring Clean
On Saturday, April 21st bring your rakes, brooms and trashbags! We are cleaning up the school grounds. This service project is for the whole family. Go to www.allforgood.org/projects/9kDzjB8q to register. Those that register and participate in the service project will be put into a drawing for Disneyland Tickets. The winner of those tickets will be announced at the Fall Carnival. Also, the class with the most volunteers will win OtterPops and a box of chalk for recess. Let's keep our school and school grounds looking nice. Join us!








Woodruff Testing Session

This month Woodruff will begin the state mandated tests (SAGE). Students in grades 3-5 will participate in tests in the areas of English Language Arts (writing and Reading), Math, and Science. Testing will start this month and end in May.





Attendance

Recently, there have been some letters sent out to families whose student(s) have missed more than 15 days of the school year. We wanted to briefly explain why those letters have gone out. Probably one of the biggest reasons why is because the lack of attendance has a huge impact on the learning of all students. While at Woodruff we want our students to be successful and to get the most out of school as they possibly can. The Logan City School District mission statement states: Ensure all students leave our schools ready to create a positive future for themselves and their community. We feel that in order to ensure these things we need our students to be at school as much as they possibly can. If you did receive a letter, and you have not had a chance to talk to Mr. Bennett about your student's attendance, please feel free to call, email or set up an appointment to talk with him so that we can we can help all students at Woodruff be successful.


Coffee & Cocoa with the Principal:
This year join Mr. Bennett every 3rd Wednesday from 8:00-8:30 to discuss school issues and have a cup of coffee and/or hot cocoa.





April STEM Challenge

Using what you know about kites, geometry, measurement, weather, and force of motion, can you design and build a kite that can fly indoors or outdoors? Materials that may be used: straws, broomstraws, wooden sticks (no pointy ends), string, lightweight paper/plastic/foil, glue, tape, other household materials. Bring your kite school on Monday, April 23rd so we can test them out at lunch recess. We can’t wait to see what you create.
