KID WRITING ASSISTANCE NEEDED
Mrs. Geis’ PM Kindergarten needs more volunteers for Kid Writing on Wednesdays starting in November, 1:55 – 2:20 p.m. You don't even have to come every single week, she’d be grateful for any extra assistance! Contact Mrs. Geis at ggeis@methacton.org.
 
BOX TOPS UPDATE
All of the boxtops brought in before winter break have been counted and the winning class gets a pizza party!  In third place for classrooms was Mrs. Clark's class with 747 boxtops, second place was Mrs. Brower's class with 980 boxtops, and in first place was Mrs. MacKay's class with 1133 boxtops. Also, 5 students won gift cards from a drawing among all students who brought in at least 1 boxtops.  These 5 students are: Yamilet in Mrs. Johnson's class, Katelyn P. in Mrs. Geis' class, Gavin in Mrs. Geis' class, Catie in Miss Reeder's class, and Madison B. in Mrs. Bradley's class. 
The spring battle has started and you can bring in boxtops until the end of May to be counted towards your class's total. Remember to put your name and class on the baggie when you turn in boxtops.

WOODLAND HOME & SCHOOL IS USING REMIND!
Woodland Home & School will also continue to use Remind as a way of sending information via text.  It's easy to sign up! Text @bk8k to 81010. Many Methacton teachers are already using Remind.  If you already are on the system, go to "join a class" and use the code @bk8k to sign up for Woodland H&S.
 
KONSTELLA IS OUR NEW COMMUNICATION SYSTEM!
Tired of trying to figure out how to sign up for or get removed from e-alerts?  We are trying something new this year!  Konstella is a web and app-based parent communication system that we hope will keep everyone connected with Woodland.  E-alerts will be phased out. There are a few ways to sign up:
1. Go to www.konstella.com, and then click on "Find Your School"
 
2. Or, look for the flyer with the unique Woodland school code on it in your first-day packet and enter it to sign up.
 
3. Or, send an email to liz_drummond@hotmail.com and ask for an invitation to join.  Please state your name and your child's name and class. 
 
Once you are in the system, download the free Konstella app to stay connected when you are on-the-go and get notifications directly on your phone.
