Week of November 18 - 22: Conferences Week

 

Woodland Hills Elementary School Charter for Enriched Studies is committed to supporting the social and emotional well-being of our students. Programs like Second Step, a research-based program designed to promote social-emotional development, and the implementation of our Positive Behavior Intervention Support, PBIS, are just two examples of programs we use. Thanks to PATT who has provided the funding, we now have one day of counseling for students who are having social-emotional needs that might be interfering with there academic and social growth. There are also district supports available as well. 

 

 

Week of November 12-15, 2019

 

We are very happy to announce the hiring of a computer instructional aide. He is our very own campus aide Jeremy Eustace! The position is 100% funded by PATT! Jeremy will be using a digital literacy program from Learning.com in addition to supporting staff with technology. Thank you PATT for supporting this very important position!

We all know as parents of young children technology can be overwhelming and scary. The link below can help you take control of your child's access to the web on their cell phones. There are many other websites to support you raising your child to live an internet safe childhood. Although students can bring a cell phone to school, the rule is the phone is to be turned off during the day and either kept in their backpacks or kept safe with the teacher until the end of the day. Thank you for supporting our school policy but reminding your child about this very important rule.
