Dear Woodfern Families,

On behalf of our amazing staff of educators, it is my honor to welcome you to Woodfern Elementary School!  I am excited to begin another year with the Woodfern community and I look forward for the opportunity to work with an experienced and dedicated staff to provide outstanding learning opportunities for our children.

Education is most successful when families and schools work together.  With this in mind, I invite you to take an active role in your child’s education.  Joining the Woodfern Home and School Association, volunteering at school, and visiting the school frequently are just a few of the ways to stay involved.  It is also important to talk to your children about school, ask about the exciting lessons and activities that are occurring daily, and encourage your children so that they arrive at Woodfern every day with a positive mindset and are ready to learn.

Woodfern is a wonderful place that combines innovation and tradition to prepare our children to be the future leaders of our society.  Please know that we will continue to provide a safe and positive learning environment in which our students participate in technology-enhanced learning experiences designed to help them grow and develop academically, socially, and emotionally.

I am looking forward to a fantastic school year.  My door is always open and I encourage you to join the Woodfern staff on our journey to educate our children.  Together, we can empower our children to reach new heights!
