Greetings,_Woodridge_Families! Card IconGreetings, Woodridge Families!

My name is Shauna Newton and I have the awesome privilege of serving as your new principal! This letter comes to you with hopes that you and your family are having a wonderful and restful summer break.
I come to the Woodridge community with 4 years administrative experience. My career in education started back in 1994 as a Head Start teacher in Pocatello, Idaho. In 2001, I moved to California with my family and started teaching at RioLinda Elementary. I went on to teach at Dry Creek Elementary and eventually became their Student Learning Coach. In addition, I have served as an Instructional TOSA and as a Vice Principal at Ridgepoint K-8 and at Hazel Strauch Elementary. I have enjoyed teaching, learning and growing along the way. I look forward to supporting you and your children in learning and growing as well. I will be on campus starting Wednesday, August 1, 2018. I have an open door policy, so if at any time you have any questions or concerns, feel free to stop by the school or call me.
I look forward to the exciting new school year ahead of us! Please join us for Back to School Night on August 22, 2018 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. I would love the opportunity to meet all of you, so stop by and chat after Back to School Night. I will be by the cafeteria with the cookies and punch.
Our teachers spend many hours setting up classrooms and preparing materials to welcome your child to their class. They would love to meet you and teach you about how to support your child and the class during the school year. We look forward to seeing you there!
