Parent and Family Engagement Coordinator

Parent and Family Engagement Main Page Image

Welcome to Woodstation!

My name is Jayne Black and I am the WES Title l Parent and Family Engagement Coordinator. My primary role is to support parents and provide information on how you can be fully engaged in your child's education. I encourage you to visit our Family Resource Center (Room 120) to learn about the many ways you can be involved and how to fully participate in your child's education. In the Family Resource Center, we have community, parenting, and educational resources available for you to take home to help your family succeed both in and out of the classroom. I'm committed to making sure all parents have the resources necessary to feel confident communicating with teachers and staff at school. I'm looking forward to an exciting and successful year!

Family and School Team (FAST) Update

Thank you to our families and parents who participated in our Family and School Team (FAST) meetings during the week of November 5th -9th. We had 287 one-on-one Parent-Teacher meetings in one week! We appreciate your participation in our FAST program and are so thankful for all the ways you support your child’s learning. Our next FAST meeting is February 7. Be sure to save the date!

Stocking Full of Love

The holiday season is approaching! Mrs. Pennington has kicked off “Stocking Full of Love” to help children in our community. The Stocking Full of Love drive is seeking new toys to brighten the holiday for families. The goal of this program is to teach life lessons and character traits such as generosity and compassion. If you are interested in participating, please contact Mrs. Pennington or the school office for more information.

Santa Shop

Santa Shop will be open for shopping December 3-7. Item prices start at 25 cents with most items in the $3-$6 range. We would love to have some extra “elves” helping with shopping and wrapping. Please let PTO know if you’re interested in joining their elf crew!

Parent Lunch

This year, our Christmas parent lunch at school is designated for PreK, Kindergarten, and 4th grade on December 15th. Our wonderful dining room staff do a great job of preparing this lunch for everyone. Your child's teacher will send home a registration form to purchase lunch tickets. Please come out and enjoy this special time with us!
