Welcome Springers!

Welcome Springers!

Welcome back, Springers!  It is going to be a great school year!  I have changed positions from part-time counselor to full-time and I’m looking forward to being here and working with our students and families everyday.

I want to welcome all of our new students to Springfield Park!  New student groups will begin on the first day of school.  The schedule is as follows:  5th graders, Tuesday at 9am

4th graders, Tuesday at 9:45am

3rd graders, Wednesday at 8:00am

2nd graders, Thursday at 1:00pm

1st graders, Friday at 11:20am

Your new student will have a scavenger hunt, hear a story, meet other new students, have his/her picture taken and fill out an “All About Me”  sheet to be displayed on the wall to the cafeteria.

About Jennifer D. Woody

Hello! I am the part-time school counselor at Echo Lake this year along with full-time counselor, Julie Williams. I am from East Tennesse. I have my undergraduate degree in psychology from Mars Hill University (near Asheville, NC) and my graduate degree in counseling education from VCU. I have been in Richmond since 1999 and I have seven years experience as a school counselor. I spent one year at Longan Elementary and six years at Johnson Elementary both in Henrico County. I have three children and have been a stay-at-home mom for the past five years. My children are all elementary age; 3rd grade, 1st grade and Kindergarten and now is the time to return to what I love doing by easing in as a part-time counselor. I look forward to getting to know staff, students, and Echo Lake families. This is a wonderful school and community! I am at Echo Lake part-time. I am here full day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and half day on Fridays. I have started classroom guidance lessons in Kindergarten and Ist grade classes. We are learning how to be good students by listening carefully, always working hard and paying attention. I am the contact person for the International Baccalaureate Program at Moody Middle School for rising 5th graders. I am here for all students. I can see individual students from parent and teacher referral. I am happy to work with your child(ren).
