Woodlawn Principal Blog 11/1/19

Happy Friday, November the 1st.  This month and next month are going to fly by!  This week was awesome here at Woodlawn! We had our fantastic musical, Fiddler on the Roof,  on Tuesday and Wednesday. Yesterday was a lot of fun as our teachers and students dressed up in costumes and had a ton of laughs.  We also celebrated Red Ribbon Week with a number of activities with our students.

Finally, I am heading to St. Louis for a lovely weekend of soccer games.  As the father of a goalie, you do not understand the pressure I face (unless you are the parent of a goalie yourself).  Any other position on the field messes and there is someone else that can help you out. The goalie messes up and who do the other  parents look at?  The parents of the goalie! Sure I love the positive feedback when my goalie makes a great save, but there is always pressure. I am not sure who had the great idea to host an outdoor soccer tournament in November, and maybe it is because we are from Chicago that they set us up with the 8a.m and 8p.m. games tomorrow.  Alright...I am done complaining. As I say to the Woodlawn staff, let’s focus on best hopes, not our worst fears. Have a great weekend! Enjoy your extra hour.
