     Dear Parents and Students,

    First and foremost, I would like to say thank you to our students, parents, and community members for all of their support during these challenging times. We are so fortunate to live in a community that rallies together whenever there is a crisis. As we move forward with virtual learning for the remainder of the school year, we cannot stress enough the importance of student engagement in both synchronous and asynchronous learning. Course content is progressing and it is imperative for students to keep up with their school work. Parents, please be sure to periodically check your child’s progress on Parent Portal.

    Put an I.O.U. for a special event or activity in his/her stocking. When students are asked to write about a memorable event in their lives, it isn't a special gift they usually choose to write about, but a particular experience they have had with someone special. During this season of the year we would like to say thanks to:

    Thank you: Teachers for preparing and executing daily interactive lessons for your classes, for maintaining daily office hours in order to provide guidance and support for parents and students and for hosting daily/weekly online meetings so students can connect and collaborate. 

    Thank you: Parents/guardians for working diligently to facilitate the distance learning process for your child(ren) remotely in your home, in addition to your own work and other important responsibilities.

    Thank you: District food service staff for preparing and distributing meals every weekday for all children, regardless of age, who are interested and/or in need.

    Thank you: Transportation and paraprofessional staff for delivering meals to district neighborhoods every weekday, as well as delivering and picking up school work and supplies for students and families as needed.

    Thank you: District technology staff for all of your assistance with technical support.

    Thank you: City of Richmond for your support of our students, families and staff.

    Thank you: Healthcare, emergency service and essential workers for your work every day and for your support of our communities.

    As always, I encourage you to please continue to refer to the division website, our school website, https://www.rvaschools.net/WE page for additional information.
    In closing, I want to reiterate our gratitude for your continued support and wish you and your family good health and good spirits throughout the holiday season. We will continue to work and learn with you and to support each other in distance learning and beyond.  I feel confident that when we all return together, it will be with a greater sense of belonging and a renewed perspective on all of the values that make Woodville Elementary School such a special place. 
    Shannon M. Washington, Principal
