Weekly Update: February 3rd - February 9th

Happy Super Bowl Sunday Hawk Families!


This is Mrs. Spenner, principal of Woodland Heights, with our weekly update.  Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weekend and will get to enjoy either the game tonight, or at least the game day food!  


I am excited to announce we will have our new receptionist starting tomorrow.  Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Teresa Gilland to our front office. Mrs. Gilland has been with the Woodland Heights family for 5 years and brings with her several years of office experience.  She has been one of our amazing TA/Bus Drivers and we are so happy to have her move into our front office. Welcome Mrs. Gilland!


This week, Bus 91 will be assisting with the Shuttle run.  That means, Bus 91 will run it’s regular route and then go to Food Lion at 6:55am.  It will still leave for campus at 7:00am.  Thank you so much for taking advantage of the shuttle, it really helps alleviate some of the car line traffic.


Please keep your calendars open for our Math and Technology Showcase February 28th from 5:00-7:00pm.  It is important to note, this event is a drop in event, so you may come by anytime between 5:00 and 7:00pm to visit your child’s classroom or participate in Math Marketplace.  We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we do the best we can given parking is limited. Hope to see you there!


Our weekly updates are shared through this Connect Ed system.  Messages are sent via phone and email. If you or someone you know is not receiving a weekly message, please contact the front office to update your information.  


PTO News:


New This Week:


PTO Meeting February 5, at 9:30 AM.

Please come join us.  It will be one hour this week.


Konstella:  As of December 28th, 2018, the Konstella Amazon Program where we were able to shop on Amazon through Konstella to earn money from the school is discontinued.  This was Amazon’s request in their partnership with Konstella. Konstella is working with Amazon and trying to get it back running. We will notify your parent organization when we reach an agreement with Amazon.


Box Tops are Due: Please have your collection of box tops at school by February 13th.  We request that you attach them to the flyers that were sent home or have them in a zip lock bag with your child’s teacher’s name and number of box tops if possible.  This will make it easier on the volunteers who put this all together for us. Thank you.


Chick-Fil-A: Join us at Chick-Fil-A on February 13 from 5-8pm.  All orders count towards our school – dine in, take out and drive through.  We do need a volunteer parent representative there throughout the event. If you are able, would you please sign yourself up to be a parent representative.  You can do it during the 30 minute block you plan to be there with your family. Only requirement is that you sit at the representative table. Thanks for your help.  Sign up here


Valentine’s Day Luncheon for Staff.  We would like to show the WHE teachers and staff how much we appreciate them again this Valentine's Day.  Please help us "warm their hearts". We ask for soups, salads, and ice should be delivered between 10-10:30  AM on that Thursday, February 14th. Please have soups warmed in a crockpot (that is labeled with your name).  Other items can be delivered any time that morning between 7:30 - 10:30 AM. Thank you so much for helping the PTO show the WHE teachers/staff our appreciation!  Go to Konstella to register
