January News

A Note form the Principal

We are excited to welcome back all students tomorrow, Tuesday, January 7th!  We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Winter Break.  Below is some information that we hope you find helpful as we begin the second semester.

As you may already know, kindergarten registration for the 2020-2021 school year begins at the end of this month.  It is important that we have families register for kindergarten as early as possible so that we are able to retain and recruit the best teachers for your children.  Please let your friends and family know that Woodglen is also accepting applications for students to choice into our school in kindergarten through 5th grade.  The first choice window closes at the end of January.


We will be hosting two information opportunities to learn more about Woodglen next week.  Please plan on attending one of these sessions if you are registering a student new to Woodglen next year.  School tours will be provided at both events.  These events are replacing the April kindergarten orientation we have provided in the past.

  • New Family Information Night  (grades K-5) Tuesday, January 14th 5:30-6:30 p.m.  Refreshments and cookies will be served.
  • Kindergarten Kick Off Wednesday, January 15th 8:00-9:30 a.m.  Refreshments and muffins will be served.  

One final note, we have had some reports that students are playing on the frozen pond in the park next to the school.  Please be sure to talk with your children about the dangers with this.   Iced over ponds in this area are never safe. 

Matt Haviland, Principal
