Prom May
Grand Auction Update
The Woodside School Foundation welcomes everyone back to the 2021-22 school year. While we had hoped to hold our Grand Auction: Prom! in October, the Delta variant had other plans. So the Grand Auction: Prom! will take place on Saturday, May 14, 2022. Stay tuned for more information. Learn more about the WSF and our fundraising goals here.
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.
