Woodcrest Purpose Woodcrest Spanish Immersion School is a supportive community that is focused on working together to ensure our students’ academic, social, and emotional growth to achieve the Spring Lake Park Essential Learning Targets.
First Grade Classes There are 4 sections of first grade: - Señora Sierra’s Class –Señora López-Gallardo Class –Señorita Aranda’s Class –-Señora Marcouiller
Student Expectations At Woodcrest the focus of classroom management is on self-discipline and learning to take responsibility for one’s actions. A student’s right to learn and a teacher’s right to teach should not be denied because of disruptive behavior. Expecting and encouraging appropriate student behavior is the responsibility of all employees who have direct contact with students.
Student Expectations The Responsible Learning management plan states the expectations for student behavior as well as consequences for inappropriate and unacceptable behavior. Woodcrest uses the Responsive Classroom practices in working with students to become responsible learners. We expect students to use as much Spanish as their skill level allows.
Student Expectations If your child receives a “bottom line” a report will go home to you and your child’s teacher will call you by the end of the day. Please sign the report and return it to school. Your signature does not mean you agree with what happened, but that you have been informed of the report.
Students need to complete their homework at home. Parents need to supervise them and make sure they have it neatly completed and correct before sending it back to school. Organize a special place just for homework. Avoid distracting elements. Homework Expectations
Students need to read at least 15 minutes everyday, that includes parents reading to them. Look for a special, quiet place to develop this habit. Reading in English, Spanish or any other language is alright. Reading time

Gum & Toys Students are not allowed to have gum in school. Non academic items will be taken “at teacher discretion” if it becomes a problem.
Report Cards Students receive a report card three times during the school year. The report card reflects the Spring Lake Park learning targets, what we want students to know and be able to do. The student performance levels are based on the end of the year targets.
Report Cards Exceeds Standard: Consistently performs above grade level target with above grade level material. At Standard: Consistently achieves grade level target independently after instruction with grade level material. Approaching Standard: Developing skills and concepts of grade level target with some help from teacher with grade level material. Minimal Progress Towards Standard: Needs continuous teacher support for work towards grade level target. NA: Not assessed or taught at this time.
Thank you for coming. We look forward to a fantastic year of successes with your children.
