Welcome New Families to West Woodland
Thank you for choosing West Woodland for your child’s education. We welcome you to our school family! Your child’s achievement, safety and well-being are our top priorities. Your collaboration and satisfaction with us is paramount to every student’s success. We look forward to seeing you around school soon!

Sample Events for New Families

Ice Cream Social
This event is focused on the incoming Kindergartners and new students to West Woodland Elementary.

  • Meet our fabulous kindergarten teachers
  • Gather useful information to help your student start the year off right
  • And most importantly….have some ice cream!

Note: To help make this event “special” and for purposes of “connecting” your child with teachers and support staff, we ask that you please attempt to arrange childcare for kids who will not be new students at West Woodland next year. If that is not possible, we understand and we would rather you bring siblings instead of missing this fun event.

Stay Informed & Kindergarten Play Dates
Until school starts, the best way for you to get updates about West Woodland is by signing up for the PTA Newsletter. During the month of August, play dates are held on the West Woodland playground to allow children to meet their new classmates, and to give you an opportunity to connect with other incoming families.

Taking Care of Business Day
In one short visit to school, you can do all the things you need to do to get your child ready for the first day of school. This includes bulk school supplies, pictures, school forms, etc.
