Redwood Peaceful Playground Poem
Everything I Learned in Life: I Learned on the Playground.
Play by the rules. Behave or you will not get to play. Dress appropriately. Keep track of your stuff. Be polite.
Take turns. Share. Make friends. Tolerate the differences of others.
Consider the feelings of others. Give everyone a chance. Get along. Be humble.
Remember. Cheaters never really win and winners never cheat.
Don’t tear up the equipment. Put stuff back where you find it.
Show sportsmanship. Shake hands. Practice to get better at everything.
Know the score. Never give up! Try your best, always in all ways!
Monthly Peaceful Playground Tip
Redwood Institutes a Freeze Signal
Most students will benefit from a clear transition from recess to the classroom. Requiring students to freeze at the
sound of whistle has many benefits:
1. Reduction in playground injuries.
2. Calm children returning to classroom in an orderly and controlled manner.
3. Easier to gain control of children after recess to remind them of rules and procedures.
4. Prevents the mad dash to be first in line.
5. Equipment can be accounted for before children released to walk- back-to-class.

Greetings from Redwood Elementary
Where we are working together to make a difference! Our school is a place where children are at the heart of everything we do. The Richland family is dedicated to providing quality work which is engaging, results in students learning meaningful content, and challenges every student to learn more. It is my job as principal to ensure that all our energies are focused on this vision and that our children develop the self-esteem and positive character needed to participate fully in our community of learners.
"Believe, Achieve, and Succeed" and "What We Do Now, Determines Their Future" are the Mission Statements we use at Redwood Elementary School. These describe the attitudes of our staff, students, parents, and community. The Redwood Elementary staff is united in a common desire to see all children achieve their academic potential. We are focused on eliminating the achievement gap and promote academic rigor for ALL students.

What our parents had to say!
Parent Involvement has been a focus at Redwood for the last 3 years. Researchers have evidence for the positive effects of parent involvement on children, families, and school when schools and parents continuously support and encourage the children's learning and development. According to research, "the most accurate predictor of a student's achievement in school is not income or social status but the extent to which that student's family is able to: Create a home environment that encourages learning, express high (but not unrealistic) expectations for their children's achievement and future careers, and become involved in their children's education at school and in the community”. This year, we recognized parents at our Eagle Pep Rally. Parents received a certificate, a message from the classroom, and a small gift. We will continue to recognize the importance of Parent Involvement monthly.
Redwood TERRIFIC KIDS
Terrific Kids is a student-recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem and perseverance.
Each Month Redwood selects a student to be recognized at Kiwanis Club of Shafter Foundation. Parents are invited to see their child honored at a special luncheon. Students are awarded with a write up from teachers, certificate, pencil and T-shirt.
CHAMPS -Student engagement at its best!
