This is a Woodlin school event, and not a PTA event.
WHAT: Back-to-School Night, hosted by Woodlin to discuss curriculum and instructional issues. This event is for parents/guardians only.
WHERE: Woodlin at Grosvenor Center, 5701 Grosvenor Lane, Bethesda MD 20814.
Meet on the black top outside at the rear of the school. After the initial welcome presentation, you will go to your child’s classroom for teacher presentations.
WHEN: 6:00-8:00pm. Here is the tentative schedule for the night:
- 6:00-6:30pm Meeting begins with full staff and community on the black top.
- 6:30-6:40pm Transition to teacher classrooms for teacher lead presentations.
- 6:45-7:20pm Teacher lead presentation session 1
- 7:25-7:50pm Teacher lead presentation session 2
- 7:50-8:00pm Clear building
The two sessions of teacher presentations cover the same material – they are being held so that families with more than one child at Woodlin have the opportunity to go to both classes, and for parents who arrive later to still make it. Mr. Jackson mentioned at the PTA meeting that teachers will focus mainly on the first session and anticipate that the second session will be more sparsely attended and perhaps more casual. Mr. Jackson also mentioned that 5th grade presentations will most likely take place in the All Purpose Room, so if you arrive late, check there before heading to the trailers.
For those who cannot make it, the presentation slides will be made available on the Woodlin school website (not the PTA website).
This is a great opportunity to visit the school and hear from your child’s teacher about instructional plans for the year and to ask questions. The PTA also will have a table with information and some spirit gear on sale.
We hope you can make it, and a big thank you to the teachers and school for hosting this event!
