Woody Review Woodview School News 340 Alleghany Road, Grayslake, IL 60030 847-223-3668 “An Environment Where We Can All Grow Together”

A Letter from our principal...

Principal: Cathy Santelle

January 27, 2012 Dear Parents and Guardians, The safety and the security of our students is our number one concern here at Woodview School. When volunteering, please stop by at the main office to sign in. We have a system that we are using that requires us to scan your driver’s license the first time you come in to volunteer. Once this has been done, the office staff will print you a badge before you head down to work in your child’s classroom. We always want to make sure that our students are safe while school is in session. Thank you for your continued support with the safety of all of our children. To those of you who have volunteered already this year, we thank you for the time you share with us. Winter benchmark testing is complete and we are excited to utilize this new data working with your children towards their specific goals. The February conference time is coming up soon. This is an opportunity to revisit the goals set at the October conference. Please look for information from your child’s classroom teacher as to scheduling your time for the week of February 13th-16th. Finally, if you know someone who does not receive the Woody Review, please encourage them to sign up by simply visiting our district website and selecting the Going Green link. They can select to receive news from the district as well. Help us spread the word so we can increase our communication. I look forward to seeing you at conference time! Sincerely, Cathy Santelle Principal

Afternoon kindergartners are invited to come to the first performance at 9:00 in the Multi-purpose room.

The progress of each class can be monitored on the bulletin board across from the office. Mrs. Wonsil's class collected over 200 box tops on the first day of the contest! They won an extra recess with Mrs. Santelle. The next class to collect 200 was Mrs. Feldman's class, they also won an extra recess with Mrs. Santelle.

Art News I am always looking for more parent volunteers to help out in the art room at various times throughout the year. If you are interested in helping please contact me at There are different supplies that the art room is always looking for: Washable markers, baby wipes, pencils, glitter, kids treats and prizes, masking tape, large zip lock bags, tissues. Kindergarten The students are learning about the primary and secondary colors. They are painting a piece of paper with each color. Then the students will turn their brush over and make marks on there paper, this is texture. When they finish, the Teacher will read them an Eric Carle storybook and learn all about the artist. With their textured paper, they will make an outdoor picture by cutting out shapes and gluing it all together. First Grade The Teacher will read the story; Huggly takes a Bath, by Tedd Arnolds. The students will then have to create their own bed monster out of construction paper. They will have to be creative and use their imagination to come up with a unique bed monster. The students will also be learning how to decorate their monster by cutting out shapes instead of drawing it out. Also to this project, the students will learn how to do printmaking. They will be making bubbles so their bed monster can take a bath. Second Grade The students are learning about the life of the artist named Vincent Van Gogh. They will be learning about the art period he was in, Post Impressionism. Van Gogh liked to show his brush strokes in his work, and the students will have to follow that style in their art project. The students are also learning what is in a landscape: the foreground, the background, the sky, a horizon line, and nature. In their art project, the students will draw a starry night landscape, just like Van Gogh famous painting, The Starry Night. Third Grade The students are learning about the life of the artist named Georgia O’Keeffe. The students will find out that Georgia O’Keeffe like to paint flowers really big and close up. The students will have to create their own flower close up. Also, the students will learn about the analogous colors, which are colors adjacent to each other on the color wheel. They will have to use analogous colors when they paint their flowers. Fourth Grade The students are finishing learning about the artist, Keith Haring. Keith Haring liked to draw cartoon figure drawings that showed movement and action. The teacher had student volunteers come and pose in an athletic stance for the other students to draw them. Then the students outlined their cartoon figures with different colored lines. These lines made the picture appear like the cartoon figures were moving just like Keith Haring’s artwork. The reason why the students did this project was for the fundraiser Jump Rope for Heart, which they will be doing in P.E. class. Thanks! Allison Heinz Art Teacher-Woodview School

P.E. UPDATE Hello Woodview Families, Over the past few weeks in Physical Education our 1st and 2nd grade classes have continued to develop their locomotor and manipulative skills by participating in a variety of engaging activities. Students in 3rd and 4th grade have been participating in our badminton unit. This unit helps our students properly develop hand-eye coordination as they must strike a "birdie" with their racket. In kindergarten, students have participated in various fun activities including parachute and tag games. This week your child should have brought home information regarding the Jump Rope for Heart. The fundraising portion of the Jump Rope for Heart has begun and will continue into next week leading up to the event, which will take place during classes the week of February 6-10. Students are to collect donations and record it on the fundraising form (which should have been brought home). All donations are due by Thursday, February 9th. There are numerous prizes that students can receive including a pizza party for the class that collects the most donations, and the top individual students will be able to "PIE" their teachers in the face! The students have already started to show their excitement for the Jump Rope for Heart and I hope we are able to make this event a success! If you have any questions please email

Thanks! Steve Feldman and Matt Mulvaney, P.E. Teachers– Woodview School

STAY HEALTHY THIS FLU SEASON TIPS FROM THE D46 HEALTH COORDINATORS To help keep illnesses and flu to a minimum, we are asking that all students and families follow these simple steps: 1. PLEASE keep sick children home from school until they are fever free for 24 hours without medication, such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin). A fever is considered above 99.5 degrees, and their cough should be gone! 2. Teach your children to COVER THEIR COUGHS and wash hands often. Hand sanitizers are also effective. 3. The CDC recommends that ALL school-age children receive flu vaccinations. Seasonal flu vaccines are available now. 4. Prepare in advance. Have alternative childcare providers available if you cannot stay home or pick up your sick child at school. Sick students cannot remain at school! 5. PLEASE report your child’s absence to school and tell us if you suspect flu. (Just saying “sick” doesn’t help us track illness trends in classrooms.) 6. Make sure we have current phone numbers to reach you and your emergency contacts.
