Woodbine Elementary School believes in providing every student what they need to learn. For that reason Woodbine believes in a school-wide support program. This program uses additional teachers and instructional aides to provide the smallest possible student-to-adult ratio to focus on basic reading skills. Our goal is to have every student become a fluent reader by the end of 2nd grade.
Woodbine Elementary School turned “checking classroom assignment” into a community event! Woodbine staff served hot dogs, fruit and drinks to all parents who came to school to check their child’s assignment. SCUSD Board of Education President, Diana Rodriguez, attended the event. Principal Hamed Razawi spoke to parents and invited everyone to continue being involved with school activities.
Beginning March 1, 24 of our after-school educational and learning enrichment programs will begin serving an estimated 2,500 “supper” meals daily through the At-Risk After-School Supper Program pilot. The meal is in addition to the snack previously provided to students attending after-school programs that run as late as 6 p.m. Suppers will be served between 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. and the snack later.
Supper pilot sites are: John Still Elementary, Freeport, Rosa Parks, Edward Kemble, Cesar Chavez, Parkway, Pacific, Fern Bacon, Woodbine, Harkness, C.P. Huntington, Maple, Nicholas, Ethel I. Baker, PS-7, Fruit Ridge, Oak Ridge, Father Keith B. Kenny, C.B. Wire, Elder Creek, Albert Einstein, Washington, Jedediah Smith and Peter Burnett.
The suppers are funded by the USDA and administered by the California Department of Education, Nutrition Services Division. High-poverty schools (more than 50 percent of the students qualify for a free or reduced-price lunch) are eligible. Reimbursement for at-risk after-school snacks has been available since the 1990s. However, reimbursement for at-risk after-school suppers was formerly available only in a few states. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-296) expanded the availability for at-risk after-school meals to all states.
After a year of planning and organizing, the Woodbine Parent Resource Center opened its doors on November 4. “We wanted to provide a welcoming place for parents to come to Woodbine to gather resources for dealing with family issues, homework tips, finding jobs and locating community resources for struggling families,” said Woodbine Parent Advisor, Linda Ascencio.
The artwork of I Can Do That!/Very Special Arts (VSA) student Edwin Pacheco-Levia, from Woodbine Elementary School, has been chosen for the international Arte Postale exhibit in Washington, D.C., during the month of November. Arte Postale is a visual arts exchange program sponsored by National VSA. Edwin’s piece — one of only 30 chosen from a field of 2,000 — is titled “Building with My Dad.” The Arte Postale exhibit will be at the U.S.
SCUSD provides full day free or reduced State/Head Start funded child care for eligible parents.
A parent working, going to school or actively seeking work qualifies for free or reduced State funded child care by being income eligible. The family monthly income must be under a certain amount. The lowest income is given highest priority.
During the course of any given year, the Child Development program provides early care and education to approximately 3,000 children ages 0-12. Children served include typically developing infants, toddlers and preschoolers and those with disabilities.
Parents are afforded a variety of program options and approaches, including center-based and home-based services, full-day/part-day preschool, infant/toddler playgroups and before/after school-age care.
Elementary, middle, and high school students are assigned to a designated neighborhood school based on where the student lives, as long as the school offers the services the student needs. Each neighborhood school has a defined geographic boundary and is intended to serve the students who live within that geographic boundary.
