Welcome Back, Springers and New Students!

Welcome Back, Springers and New Students!

Welcome back to all of our Springers new and old.  We are excited for another year of learning.  Our theme this year is “Be the Change!”  I would like for every student this year to try and Be Friendly, Be Helpful, Be Kind, Be Caring, Be your best, Be Strong, Be Brave, Be Honest and Be Fair.

I will be conducting new student groups this week for any new student in grades 1st through 5th.  We will meet, fill out an “All about Me” sheet, and do a scavenger hunt to meet our wonderful staff.  The second week of school, our new students will meet with me again for a “FUN LUNCH” where we’ll eat lunch outside, play some card games and have a good time getting to know each other.  Welcome to all of our new students!


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).
