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.

Peaceful Playground Reminders!!!
Follow the Rules on the Playground
1) No rough playing
2) No toys or equipment brought from home
3) No playing tag is allowed
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.

Redwood College Focus!!
This year we will continue with the tradition we started last year, each classroom will adopt a college. During the course of the year your class will learn all year about the chosen college. At the end of the year during our Open House event in May you will get to share what you’ve learned with your family. Every Monday Redwood will start the week off with a scholarly focus by wearing a college shirt. This year we will refer to your grade level in the year that you’re expected to graduate from high school.
