Happy Tuesday! I hope you have had a marvelous Memorial Day Weekend. We should all be very thankful, and pause a moment, to honor and remember those who have "given up their todays, so that we can have our tomorrows". I extend a heartfelt thank you to all those in our Woodland family who have served, or are serving, in the military.
It has been a BIG morning at Woodland! Our physical education department, led by Mrs. Jenna Peterson, enrolled our school in the Step To It Challenge sponsored by the Minnesota Twins organization. Due to the overwhelming participation by our Woodland family (over 170 registrations), we won a visit from the Twins. Woo hoo!
This morning, Mr. Perry Castellano, the strength coach for the team, and Twins catcher Mr. Chris Herrmann visited Woodland to talk about the importance of exercise and movement in all of our lives. Chris Herrmann answered questions from many students about his role as the Twins back-up catcher. Mr. Castellano and Mr. Herrmann were also joined by TC, the Twins' mascot. It was a fabulous morning for our school family! Thanks to all who are participating in the Step To It Challenge and, once again, proving we are a terrific school family/community!
Go Twins! And go Woodland! Whether you are participating in the Step To It Challenge or not, please make sure exercise and movement are part of your regular family schedule. Not only are they good for you, they can be very fun!
Enjoy the pictures from our special morning!
