Mrs. Myer’s 1st grade class has been focusing on kindness during the month of February and we each made a kindness heart. All of the students went around the room and wrote something kind on everyone else’s heart. When we were all done the students went back to their own table and read their heart. Our classroom was full of happiness and smiles and the kids were very excited to see what everyone else had to say about them.
We also celebrated the 100th Day of School by doing some different 100th Day learning stations. We started by doing 100 exercises. Then we did 100 piece puzzles, built with 100 pattern blocks, played Race to 100 on the number grid, and we made 100th Day glasses. At snack time we made a trail mix and we added 100 pieces of each item. As we added the items we counted by 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s. It was a fantastic way to celebrate all of the hard work that we have done during the first 100 days of school!

On Thursday, January 23rd a number of students competed in the WHS Annual Spelling Bee. Mrs. Neylon and her team hosted a wonderful event where students were able to shine and show off their spectacular spelling talents. Jamie was the overall winner with Sierra taking 1st Runner up and 2nd Runner up went to Zack.
Woodland Heights 4th graders and their chosen adults have the opportunity to celebrate reading through their participation in our “Book Companions” book club.
The club members meet in the WHS Library one evening each month to share thoughts about the book they’ve been given to read together and members also bring in food and objects that they feel have connections to the story.
During December and coming here in January the students at WHS are being introduced to computer coding. To kick off this great unit students in grades 3-5 particpated in an Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 9-15), Woodland Heights Students helped to make history and were part of the 10 million students world wide that joined in and participated in an Hour of Code. To learn more about this program visit www.code.org.
Students were given the task to create sequences of programming code that would enable them to complete 20 puzzles. During this time we only had one student, McKenna, a 4th grader here at WHS who completed all 20 puzzles in under 40 minutes. We had numerous other students though go on to meet the challenge as well, given a little extra time.
Below are some of our students who earned their Hour of Code Completion Certificate.
In 2013, the White House received 35,000 handwritten letters, including well wishes, suggestions for how to run the country, and inevitably, questions about the president’s dog.
On Jan. 11, thirteen of our own Woodland “O.T.” Wildcats sent letters to President Obama to celebrate his inauguration as well as to work on their handwriting skills. On May 22, 2013 the students received a letter back from the president himself!
The letter-writing campaign is sponsored by Handwriting Without Tears , a national curriculum for students in kindergarten through fifth grade that guides putting words on paper. Jan Olsen, an occupational therapist and founder of Handwriting Without Tears, based in Gaithersburg, Md., said the program is an easy way to teach children the power of the written word and to encourage them to share their ideas and concerns.
The following students proudly participated with inspiring letters on healthcare, school safety, job creation, and wishing the president well: Danny, Hunter, Jace, Sonya, Shane Grady, Teanna, Damien, Leigha, Riley, Mathias, Mason, Samantha, and Jeffrey.
