Dear Parents, 

I hope you had a wonderful new year and are back to your normal routine.  I want to thank you for the kind words, cards and messages I received on the passing of my husband.  You are a kind and thoughtful community and I truly appreciate your concern.

We have completed our MAP testing for all grades.  Once the district closes the testing period, NWEA,computer test our testing company, will deliver the results to the district and we will have them printed out and sent home shortly thereafter.

February is filled with many holidays to celebrate.  We have Groundhog’s Day on February 2nd, Valentine’s Day on February 14th, Founders’ Day on February 16th, and Presidents’ Day on February 20th.

The many holidays provide a wonderful array of activities for our students. The students made 


Valentine’s Day cards for our veterans in support of Nassau County’s “Valentines for Veterans” Program. The Valentine’s Day cards were sent to the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency and they will arrange for their disbursement. This month we also have Black History Month, and we will celebrate the 100th day of school on February 11th!

We are also collecting cans of soup as we get ready for Super Bowl 51.  We have two boxes in the lobby—one for the Atlanta Falcons and one for the New England Patriots. We are asking the students to soup place their cans in the box of the team they hope will win. On Friday, we will count the cans in each box and announce the team Woodland will be supporting!  The cans of soup will be donated to the Hicksville Boys’ and Girls’ Club.  Thank you for your generosity!

The PTA will celebrate Founder’s Day on February 16th with a dinner at the Milleridge Inn.  Woodland congratulates our honorees: Mrs. Wendy Cataldo, Mrs. Ann Carlino, Ms. Sue Simon and Mrs. Mathis. Thank you for all that you do for our students.

Please don’t forget to have your child cuddle up with a good book every day. If they can read, they can do anything!
