Hello Woodside Families, and welcome!
My name is Christina Parry, and this is my second year teaching Developmental Kindergarten at Woodside! I am not only a teacher, I am also a parent to three children in the Everett public school district! As I get to learn how to instruct online, I also get to help my own children learn all of the new tools available to them; and how to use them. We truly are all in this together!
I am very excited to have your student in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development. This year might look a little different than most school years, but we will make it a good one! Please visit the district website for updates on what to expect for Online Learning. Updates will also be sent to families via email, so please check your email for important information, as well as digital tools/resources available to students and families during this time.
Please visit the links provided on the right-hand side of this welcome page for school and district provided digital resources. The District Learning Engagement Tools is a link for parents to access resources and learning activities created by the district curriculum department. The Woodside Student Tools link gives parents access to all K-5 learning tool links. District Student Tools allows access to all District student tools and resources for grades K-12.
I will also be preparing fun, stimulating lessons and activities meant to help keep growing minds learning new concepts and developing new ideas. Please remember not to stress over creating a school-environment at home; the most important thing you can do for your student is to be there for them. Sometimes educational opportunities in the home look like playing a board game, cooking a meal together, assembling a puzzle, reading stories aloud, or going through family photos and talking about your family history. Education is everywhere!
I am available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and will check and reply to my emails daily. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns! Your insight is important, and I will work to answer any questions and resolve and issues that may arise during these unprecedented times.
Toucan do it!
