Welcome to Furnace Woods Elementary School!
Furnace Woods School is a very special place where the mission of the Hendrick Hudson School District is reflected in everything we do. We strive to provide a challenging learning environment where all students can reach their full potential. In addition to providing a differentiated curriculum, students strive to be WISER at Furnace Woods. Children learn to be Well-mannered, Independent, Safe, Encouraging, and Respectful. These characteristics are woven into our daily routines and lessons.
Communication between home and school is an integral part of what we do at Furnace Woods. Parents are encouraged to review our weekly bulletin as it is posted every Thursday afternoon. This bulletin provides important information about upcoming events and the great things that are happening at Furnace Woods. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher at any time with any concerns or questions.
There are many opportunities for families to get involved at Furnace Woods. We hope that you will join our PTA and attend the monthly meetings. Class parents are an important piece of the Furnace Woods puzzle as they help teachers with the organization of special events and class celebrations. Throughout the year there will be opportunities to chaperone field trips, help out at our school fair, and volunteer at the book fair, to name just a few.
I hope to see you at some of our special events. Please check the calendar frequently to be sure you don’t miss anything. As always, we look forward to a wonderful and successful year of learning – academically, socially, and emotionally. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
