Home of the “Bulldogs”

Welcome to a new year at Woodland Park Middle School! Our faculty and staff are excited to begin a new school year working with students and parents. Middle school is a special time offering students the opportunity to broaden their exposure to a world of ideas and academic knowledge, as well as developing personal responsibility and independence. The teachers and staff of Woodland Park Middle School have been working hard preparing for a new school year, and we all look forward to your arrival.
Bulldog Kick-Off Days--Our registration process in two steps

STEP 1: Complete the online registration process prior to the Bulldog Kick-Off days. We recommend doing this at your earliest convenience so you have time to gather the required documents and upload them into ParentVue. This process is slightly different for students who are new to the SMUSD and those who are returning Bulldogs or coming from another SMUSD School. Use the appropriate links below for the directions.



STEP 2: Come to School on your grade level’s Bulldog Kick Off Day!
Bulldog Kick-Off Days and Hours

6th Grade, 
Monday, August 9th

Bulldog Kick-Off begins in the PAC with verification that the online registration portion has been completed. Students will pick up class lists, check out textbooks, take student ID/ Yearbook photos, 7th and 8th graders buy P.E. clothes ($16 per set), and Yearbooks optional ($50) and tour the campus. You may also pre-purchase through our web store and avoid the long lines. Cash or check will be accepted. Please make checks payable to WPMS.

First Day of School: Tuesday, August 17th
Classes will begin at 8:00am and dismissal is at 2:25pm. Parents and students who do not attend Bulldog Kick-Off must go to the auditorium (Performing Arts Center) on the first day of school beginning at 7:15 AM. Students will not be allowed to attend classes until the required registration process is completed.

Our administrative office will open to the public starting Monday, August 2nd, 8:00am to 3:00pm. Please contact us at 760-290-2455 if you need assistance. Visit our school website https://woodlandparkmiddle.smusd.org/ for information about upcoming events and important reminders. Our Schoolmessenger phone and email system will keep you advised of school events.

We are especially excited for our WEB Orientation for incoming 6th graders on Wednesday, August 11th from 8:00am to 12:00pm. WEB stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” and is a time when incoming 6th graders will connect with other 6th graders and meet their 8th grade mentor for the year. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or the office staff. Enjoy the rest of your summer and Go Bulldogs!
