As we close out the school year with our last four weeks, I am encouraged and optimistic about the future for our students and staff. We have worked hard to outreach to all students and staff and make things as normal as possible throughout this pandemic.
Please make sure and register your children for the 2021-22 school year as soon as possible. As things return to normal, we want all families to be prepared and registered so schedules and planning can be in place once we return to campus in August.
As always, we encourage all our families to join the Woodrow PTA or volunteer on a committee to help us continue to make Woodrow an amazing place for our students and staff next year.

SENIOR CENTER OPEN FOR CLASS OF 2021
CLASS OF 2021 STUDENTS ARE INVITED TO SPEND WEDNESDAYS IN THE LIBRARY FOR FELLOWSHIP AND SUPPORT. This is a great time to work on assignments, recover seat time, finalize college documents with Ms. Baz, and study for exams.
The space is reserved just for seniors. There will be food, music, and fun. Commit and connect to finish these last few weeks strong!
ATTENDANCE FOR CREDIT - SENIORS
THERE ARE ONLY 15 DAYS LEFT FOR ANY SENIOR TO MAKE UP SEAT TIME. Students will be denied credit if they miss the deadline. There are no extensions. Students will need to attend summer school or retake the course next year if they miss the deadline. Students should contact their teacher about the specific number of absences they have and hours they need to make up.
THE WOODROW DANCE COMPANY (WDCO) IS PROUD TO PREMIERE HIGHLIGHTS FROM SLEEPING BEAUTY. This classic tale is adapted to showcase the range of dance styles performed by WDCO - ballet, modern, jazz, folk, hip hop and neo-classical. Performances are Wednesday, May 26 and Thursday, May 27 at 7 p.m. in the Woodrow auditorium. In accordance with COVID protocols there is limited seating for each show to maintain social distancing. Mask, temperature check, and ticket (in print or on phone) will be required to enter.
WILLIS WINTERS PARK STUDENT SURVEY
A TASK FORCE ORGANIZED BY DISD AND THE DALLAS CITY COUNCIL IS SURVEYING STUDENTS IN GRADES 4-12 THAT ATTEND WOODROW FEEDER PATTERN SCHOOLS ABOUT THEIR PERSPECTIVE ON WILLIS WINTERS PARK. The digital survey is anonymous and will take no more than 5-10 minutes. The goal is to collect as many surveys as possible by the end of May and report back to the board and the council by August. Our intention is that our elected officials can use the students' perspectives as a starting point when considering issues around the park, including safety, accessibility and usability. Please encourage your student to complete the survey.

This is an exciting and stressful time. While we are celebrating students at signing events, performances, and banquets, we're also closing out critical items we've been preparing for all year. This upcoming week we have testing for TSI, TELPAS, STAAR, and AP. Because of STAAR testing, Tuesday and Wednesday will be flex days. Make sure your student uses these two days to catch up on work, attend office hours, and prepare for exams. Thank you for partnering with us to make Woodrow the exemplary school for teaching and learning. Read more ...
