On Your Mark,      Get Set...READ!!!

The reading program at the Portage Library kicks off on Thursday, June 2. Mrs. Foster was here at Woodridge to read to us and get us pumped up for the program.  Throughout the summer, the library is offering special events to promote reading.  Also, Woodridge is trying to earn the most minutes to win the trophy.  So get to the library this summer and read, read, read!  

Also, there will be a free lunch provided throughout the summer at two locations: Goodyear Park and Portage Public Library.  


Queen For The Day

Mrs. Kuzera will be retiring at the end of the school year, so Woodridge wanted to celebrate her wonderful career.  Mrs. Kuzera got the royal treatment and was Queen for the Day.  She is a fabulous teacher and we will miss her so much!

Pen Pal Visit

The first grade and Ms. Rosbeck's multiage class went to visit their pen pals at Heritage House and Tivoli.  The students got a tour of the facility, sang songs, shared cookies, and most of all read books to their pen pals.  It was a wonderful day!

Making Positive Change

Woodridge is having a Change Drive!  The theme for this school year is "We Make A Difference."  We are collecting change for the River Haven Shelter here in Portage. Many students have brought in change so far. If we reach $200, we will get a school dance! Also, someone will get to throw a pie in Mrs. Thistle’s face! So please send in your extra change for this wonderful cause.  

Astronomy Presentation

We had some wonderful visitors at Woodridge.  Mrs. Fritz's astronomy class from the high school came to Ms. Rosbeck's K/1 class to share their books they created about the solar system.  After reading, together they created a necklace that represented how the solar system looks.  

Making Pizza

Mrs. Canales showed Ms. Kane's class how to make their own personal pan pizza.  It was a great time!
