• Happy Monday Redwood Families!

    As always, I hope that you had a wonderful weekend, and if you're a football fan, that the team you were rooting for won.  I had the pleasure of traveling to Sandusky, Ohio with the VEX robotics team last week.  It is always great to see our students work together in this type of competitive environment.  Although we didn't take home gold, the students had a great time and certainly got a greater appreciation for California weather.

    Students are currently taking their second round of iReady tests this week.  The data gathered from these exams not only help guide instruction, but it also helps in providing much needed academic intervention for students who are struggling.  With that in mind, please make sure your child comes to school with a fully charged Chromebook as well as a pair of headphones. Please have them put the headphones in their backpack now!  


    The school play, Newsies Jr. is right around the corner. There will be 6 performances of the Redwood musical, Disney’s Newsies Jr. - 3 for each cast - one on January 27th, two on January 28th, and two on January 29th. Performances will be at SHS’s McAfee theater — get your tickets here: https://www.showtix4u.com/event-details/67247


    On a final note, when dropping your student off in the morning, please feel free to let them out of the vehicle at a safe and appropriate time.  Families do not have to keep the student in the vehicle all the way to the front of the traffic line.  If you plan for a timely exit earlier, the key word being timely, you can exit the line and drive in the other lane in order to depart.  This movement out of the drop off line will allow more vehicles to pull into the parking lot rather than clogging traffic on Fruitvale.  Every little bit helps!


    Have a great week!
