    The Big Woods staff and I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer, are recharged, and are ready to start school.  We are looking forward to another year of learning and success!

    Our custodians are working tirelessly to prepare and clean the building for you.   Big Woods looks amazing!  Our office team is registering new families, helping new staff, and checking-in orders and supplies.  Our teaching staff is busily preparing their rooms or offices for you.  Our dedicated PTO is gearing up for another year of exciting opportunities for families.  We have the common goal of providing you a safe and productive learning environment.

    Each year brings positive changes.  I am excited to welcome Mrs. Casperson (MN Reading Corps), Ms. Thinesen (2nd grade), Mrs. Westom (4th grade), Mrs. Anderson (speech & language), and Mrs. Clutter, Mrs. Eull, & Mr. Sander (special education).  In addition, our staff is proud to launch Pathways, a setting 3 special education program. 

    I look forward to seeing you at Open House on Monday, August 27th.  I’ll be in the main corridor and encourage everyone to stop and say hello. 

    It is a privilege to serve as the Big Woods principal.  If we work together, we can make 2018-19 a year of growth and achievement for all our Big Woods students.
