Sweet and Hull's Highlights

Last Friday, January 18th, was our Chuck E Cheese Benefit Night. We enjoyed seeing so many of you there helping to support our school PAC!  The profits received from this night will directly impact our students! Thanks for all you do to help our Woodland family be successful!!!

The Woodland Delivers letter writing campaign will take place during the month of February. Woodland students (and teachers, too!) work on writing friendly letters. Students can write letters to friends, siblings, current and former teachers, and other staff members. The letters are mailed in a large mailbox in the office and Student Activities Committee members take turns delivering the mail to the mailboxes created and set outside each classroom. This fun learning activity allows students to use their developing writing skills and helps involve the entire Woodland Elementary School community.

Information regarding your parent/teacher conference time the week of February 4th should have been sent home. We have used corresponding times from the schedule created for fall conferences held in October. If that time does not work for you, please contact your child's teacher to reschedule a convenient time.

The annual Woodland Elementary School blood drive will be held on Wednesday, January 30th from 3:00-7:30 p.m. in the gym. Information went home last week. You may schedule your appointment online at (, or return the form and we will schedule for you. We appreciate your support and participation in this worthwhile service project. If you can not find the form, please contact the school and we will get you a new one! We look forward to a great turnout. Together we can save lives!!!

Lifeskills for the next two weeks are caring and cooperation!


School Closings and Delays

The tardy bell rings at 9:00 a.m. If a student arrives at school after the tardy bell rings we require a parent to walk the student into the building and sign the student in at the office. A hallway pass will be given to the student and they may proceed to class.


Special Event for Parents

On January 31st, the TSC SROs and the sheriff will be presenting a program for parents called Social Media: Positives, Pitfalls and Trends. It will be at Wainwright Middle School at 6:00 pm in the gym. If you would like to join us, that would be great. This event is an important topic for all of our students who have access to social media. We would love to include you if you are interested.

Donation Opportunities


Woodland Elementary has been blessed to have a backpack program. This program helps provide proper nutrition for the Woodland Students. Malnourished children lack energy, so they become less curious and playful and communicate less with the people around them. This impairs their physical, mental and cognitive development. 20% of children in households at risk of hunger may be forced to rely exclusively on charitable organizations to obtain the recommended amount of nutrition.


As of now, Woodland has almost completely run out of funds for this program. Please consider donating money to help keep the program going. A donation of any size will help.

Please mail a check or money order to:
Food Finders Food Bank
1204 Greenbush St.
Lafayette, IN 47904


Please include with your check a note or letter stating that your donation should be applied to Woodland Elementary School's account.

If you are unable to send a donation directly to Food Finders, you may send it to Woodland instead. Thank you so much for your consideration!

If you are a family in need of food or other resources, attached below are links for more information on how to receive relief. Please click on them for more information.

Paid Opportunities


Woodland is looking for people who are interested in substituting as an instructional assistant when a member of the Woodland Staff would be absent.


People are needed to help with supervision of students at recess and in the cafeteria.


Woodland also needs individuals who are willing to work with individual or small groups through the resource room.

Nurse News


Winter is a time where we often see an increase in cases of headlice. Following is information from TSC in regards to head lice:

"Head lice checks are done on an as-needed basis if an infestation is suspected through excessive scratching, or if lice are seen in the hair. TSC Health Office staff do not perform head-checks of entire classrooms.

Our staff will check students who are symptomatic (excessive scratching or visible nits/lice), and as needed for students undergoing lice treatment.

Students will not be sent home for having nits in their hair, but will be sent home for live lice. Students sent home with live head lice must be checked by health office personnel before they return to class.


Head lice is very distressing to kids as well as parents, but they do not pose a health threat. Lice do not transmit diseases, and are spread most commonly by close person-to-person contact. Dogs, cats or other pets do not play a role in transmission. Lice move by crawling, and do not jump or fly.

Common places that lice are transmitted include school, daycare, home, sporting activities and slumber parties.Transmission may occur in the following ways:

  • Wearing clothes, such as hats, scarves, coats or helmets of an infested person.
  • Sharing combs, brushes, hair ties or towels with an infested person.
  • Lying on a bed, pillow, couch, carpet or stuffed animal of an infested person.


All reasonable measure will be taken to prevent the spread of lice at school. Students will be reminded not to share coats, hats and brushes/combs at school. We recommend that you routinely check your child for head lice at home. Below is a head-lice treatment checklist that should be followed in the event your child has lice."


The health office provides extra clothing to children who need to change during the day. We are low on pants and clean new/gently used underpants for both girls and boys. If you have any clothing that you no longer need, please consider donating them to our health office.


As always, please contact me with any questions or health care concerns that you may have. I am available Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM until 4:00 PM.
