Workshop Education Enrichment — After School 2021-22
Workshop is back! We are super excited to return to Woodside Elementary for the 2021-22 school year. We've missed our student entrepreneurs. Our award-winning Study Skills and Innovation Workshop classes continue as the program's pillars. Emerging from the pandemic, Workshop Education will focus now more than ever on executive functioning skills, life skills, hands-on learning activities, and enjoying the great outdoors! www.workshopeducation.org 
Woodside School Online Directory — click HERE to access
Last fall, Woodside School chose Konstella as our directory and collaboration tool. Konstella enables parents and staff to find other families and staff members, send messages, and organize school and classroom activities, and more — all via a secure, password-protected site. Also, be sure to download the mobile app to access Konstella on the go. 
All WES families enrolled for the 2021-22 school year will receive an invitation from Konstella to this year's online directory. If you have any questions, feel free to email woodsideschoolpta@gmail.com.

Is Your Child Struggling & Need Support?
Allison Brunner, the School Psychologist, and Mena Lam, the School Counselor created the WESD Counselor's website containing resources for parents, students, and staff including a variety of coping skills, executive functioning strategies, and SEL activities. This website has a virtual "mailbox" to ask a question, share a message, or just contact Ms. Lam or Mrs. Brunner for a check-in. We hope this will provide some additional support with at-home learning. They are here to help your child if he/she is in need of support during this difficult time. Or simply email them directly — Ms. Lam and Mrs. Brunner.
