Welcome Back Bulldogs!
On behalf of the entire Woodland Park Staff, we are so excited for the 2016/17 school year. We can’t wait to see our returning students and learn about their summer and new aspirations. We also can’t wait to meet our newest Bulldogs who are entering middle school for the first time or who are new to San Marcos. Please know, regardless if you are new or returning “We Got Your Back!” That’s right, our theme to start this school year is “We Got Your Back” or “We Have Your Back” for our more grammatically inclined students…either way… we are here to serve you. We want to make sure the start to this next major chapter in our students’ lives is an engaging and exciting one.
Our new 6th Graders will feel this theme right from the start with our brand-new W.E.B Orientation on Tuesday, August 16th, from 8am-12pm in the WPMS Gym. W.E.B stands for “Where Everyone Belongs” because we whole-heartedly feel that every student is part of the Bulldog family and will be supported. At the orientation, 6th graders will experience a dynamic assembly, have a small group break-out session, and take a campus tour…all of this will be led by our 8th grade student leaders. By the end of the day, every 6th grader will have an 8th grade mentor for the entire year, have 10 new friends, and feel comfortable with navigating the hallways and rooms of our campus. We’re excited our 6th graders will be hitting the ground running on the first day of school, ready to thrive as Bulldogs. This orientation is for students only so please feel free to drop students off just before 8am and pick them up at 12pm.
Our Bulldog Kick-Off Days are set for August 17-19th from 8am-1pm in the PAC. The designated days are:
August 17th- 6th Grade
August 18th- 7th Grade
August 19th- 8th Grade
As part of our “We Got Your Back” theme, we’ve made some changes to the registration process to make it smoother and faster. You may notice we have less stations, the North County Health Services will be here on the 7th grade day (8/18) to give free Tdap immunizations, and we’ve created a webcast in English and Spanish that walks parents through the entire process. The webcast also shares some “quick tips” to help make the process quicker for everybody. Click here to visit the webcast.
Once again, welcome back, and we can’t wait to see your student on the first day of school, August 29th.
