Kindergarten Feast

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016


The kindergarten classes gathered today as Pilgrims and Native American Indians to celebrate Thanksgiving. Traditional hats and bonnets were made and worn.    Mr. Strong came in and talked about the importance of Thanksgiving and the kids shared how it all started.  Each child shared what they were thankful for and we all feasted on breakfast goodies provided by the parents.  Afterwards, Mr. Strong read “The NIght Before Thanksgiving” and we learned more about the holiday by watching “The Mouse and the Mayflower”

Science Day Ignites Passion in Woodland Park Students







We Are Thankful!

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

Mrs. Dahlkoetter and Mrs. Vowiller and the 4th grade student council have decided to lead all WP students in a monthly activity.  For the month of November, we created a Tree of Thanks where staff and students  were each given a piece of construction paper to trace their hand, cut it out and write what they are thankful for and the leaves were then added to the tree.  Each month we will be sponsoring a new activity to bring together all the staff and students at WP.  The picture doesn’t do the tree justice it’s beautiful!
