You have learned to be creative, innovative and playful when it comes to learning. You have learned to reflect on learning, ask questions and take risks.  Above all, you have learned to strive to be REMARKABLE. You are truly Purple Cows in our eyes. You are the Awesome-est! It has been a pleasure learning along side of you this school year. Mrs. J and I appreciate how you rose to every occasion and pushed yourself. You have pushed us to become more uncommon, creative, innovative, playful, curious, reflective and remarkable as teachers. As you leave us today as a Woodster Alum, we are better teachers for having had you in our class.  For that, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Mr. Wood and Mrs. Jwaskiewicz
