A successful school requires involved parents, teachers, principal, faculty, students, and supporting organizations - Woodstock meets these criteria! However, incoming parents and students must understand that unlike other schools, success at Woodstock requires additional academic, social, and extracurricular activities. For example, many Woodstock parents actively participate in their child's homework and provide additional academic involvement via computerized mathematical practice, Mandarin worksheets, Mandarin aftercare, reading programs like the award winning Multnomah County library Summer Reading Program, etc. Parents also encourage cultural competency be enrolling their child in weekend or after school Chinese dance classes, additional language training, martial arts, and tutoring. Parents embrace, attend, volunteer, and participate in Chinese holidays, Shu Ren, and cultural experiences. Learning Mandarin is a difficult and time consuming activity, but for the student there are or will be tremendous rewards! , [d sh x y ng y y z zh qi n j n] In study, concentration is required, for every character understood is worth a thousand pieces of gold.
