We Stand Up. We Think Visibly. We are CW!

Welcome to Central Woodlands!

Our staff works hard to provide an education that engages the inquiring minds of our students.  At Central Woodlands, we take pride in providing learning opportunities that allow the thinking of our students to be visible and in order to reach their individual potential.  Our school is filled with adults who will do anything to make sure your child has a wonderful experience every day at school.  We pride ourselves on creating a “Stand Up” culture where students “Stand Up, Speak Out and Stand With!”  Our mission is to provide all learners with opportunities to acquire the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to build meaningful and productive lives. Our school would not be what it is without the partnership and support of our community.  We encourage you to be an active participant in our school community and to volunteer as much as you can!

Veteran's Day at CW

On Veteran’s Day, students and staff at CW spent time learning more about Veteran’s Day.  It was a wonderful assembly that challenged students to “step inside” what it is like in a military family.  Melissa Smith, a 5th grade teacher at CW, shared her experiences of being a military wife.  We then were able to hear from her husband, Lt. Col. Smith about the sacrifices he has made serving our country!  One our our 6th grade students present Lt. Col. Smith with his very own CW Stand Up T-Shirt!  All of us at CW thank our Veterans for their heroism and service!

Hometown Heroes

Today our students welcomed 9 FHC students to share their stories.  This month, our school focus has been on understanding empathy and how it fits with our Stand Up Culture.  At our Hometown Hero assembly, FHC students shared about their experience in not being defined by a label.  This was inspired from the book that all students heard called, Exclamation Point.  Please ask your child about the message they heard!  Feel free to check out the video from the assembly http://youtu.be/mwiYc3e_2jM
