Wellness Wednesday Reminders!

There are still plenty of Wellness Wednesday tips to absorb and challenges left for your Wolves to participate in before Winter Break!  Here’s the skinny:


November 18th– “Gratitude”- happiness researcher and scientist Shawn Achor says that finding gratitude in life can actually make better students!  When our brains are in a state of positivity we are more likely to be better learners and more creative.  Our brains can grow with a simple practice of finding 3 things we are thankful for each day.  Think of 3 things you are grateful for right now!

December 2nd– “Winter Sports”- check out the display in the lobby with all different kinds of equipment and ideas for winter sports!  Winter is still a great time to get outside and move our bodies, just be sure to bundle up.

December 9th- “Citrus Fruits”- ‘Tis the season for Citrus fruits! Did you know that you can build your immune system by eating vitamin rich foods like pineapple, oranges, grapefruit and kiwi?  Vitamin C is essential for helping your body fight stress which helps build your immune system against the flu!  Bring a CITRUS FRUIT in your lunch & look for members of the school Wellness Committee in the cafeteria handing out something special!

December 16th- “Winter Brain Energizer”- This last week before winter break includes a fun brain energizer!  Tune in to the WWE News for this easy to learn festive dance!

New Dismissal Process


Starting on Wednesday, August 26th, we will begin a new dismissal process for our car riding students. Due to the number of students now attending West Woods Elementary, the District will be sending our buses approximately 5-7 minutes after the 2:55 pm regular dismissal. As a result of this change, we will utilize the car pool loop and the bus loop for our car riding students. To expedite the dismissal process, the following procedure will be implemented:

  • At our normal dismissal time, 2:55 pm, all of our car rider students and walkers will be dismissed.
  • Students in Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and any older siblings of students in these grade levels will utilize the car pool loop to be picked up.
  • Students in 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, 5th Grade, and 6th Grade will utilize the bus loop to be picked up.
  • Please see this diagram for a visual representation.

By using both the car pool and bus loops, we hope to have all our car riding students dismissed in a safer, more efficient manner. We are also hoping to alleviate some of the car congestion prior to our school and day care buses arriving. We believe this will actually make our dismissal process faster, and any difference in student drop off time from buses should be minimal. If you have any questions regarding this new procedure please contact the school. As always, new procedure will take a few days to run smoothly. Please be patient and follow all directions from school staff members to help in this process.

Thank you,

Jason B. Smith
West Woods Elementary
