Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with a heavy heart to inform you that my last day as the Principal of Woodlake will be this Friday, August 23, 2019.  After four amazing years of being a part of our success, it was time for me to accept a principal position closer to where I live.  I cannot express how difficult it was to come to this conclusion as I have established many meaningful relationships with my staff, teachers, parents, but more importantly my students. 
I am proud to have represented a community who values educating the whole child and understands the importance of kindness and generosity.  Woodlake will always have a special place in my heart as you took a chance on a first year principal to lead this wonderful school.  I will cherish all the experiences and memories we have shared together. 
On Thursday, August 22, I will be visiting all the classrooms and saying my farewell to each student.  Also, on Friday, August 23 at 8:15 am, I will be participating in my final Coffee with the Principal at Woodlake so if you have any questions or concerns about Woodlake’s future this is a great opportunity to learn about the interim principal and the process in hiring an outstanding leader.
Once again, I want to thank you for your support and making my experience at Woodlake special!   
Mario Thompson
