Longhorns Parents and Students:
WELCOME BACK LONGHORNS! I would like to welcome everyone to an exciting 2018-19 school year here at Woodbury Middle School. We have an exciting year planned, with new things happening for the Longhorn family.
Standard Student Attire was voted in by the school community last school year and will be mandatory for all students for the 2018-19 school year. Please check our school website at https://www.woodburylonghorns.net/standard-student-attire/ for more information. We will have samples available for you to see in August 2018. Please make sure you read the newsletter to see what is and are not allowed for Standard Student Attire.
Here are some very important dates that will guide you through the beginning of the school year: Student Orientation will be held Thursday August 9, 2018 and more information on specific grade level attendance times will be forthcoming. The first day of school is Monday, August 13, 2018 (8:00a.m.-2:11 p.m.). Open House is August 15, 2018 from 3:30pm-5:30pm. The first Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meeting will be on Wednesday, August, 29, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. in the theater. There will be no school on Monday, September 3, 2018 in observance of Labor Day.
We will be implementing a block schedule for students in English Language Arts in grades 6 and 7 for the 2018-19 school year. This will allow students greater opportunity to focus on mastering the skills necessary to be successful, as they prepare to move to 8th grade and high school. Please continuously monitor Infinite Campus so you can be aware of your student’s progress in all classes, as well as their attendance. If you need assistance with setting up or accessing your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account, please see our Registrar. It is extremely important that your child is at school on time, and every day to get the most of their education here at Woodbury.
Make sure you follow all things that happen at Woodbury on our Twitter feed @CwWoodburyMS, and my Twitter @Prncpl_Young. We frequently send and post pertinent information to both feeds.
I am excited about the 2018-19 school year and look forward to seeing and working in partnership with all of you!
