Woodward Newsletter #31 - May 6, 2022

Hi Woodward families! Happy Mother’s Day!


This weekend, we are excited to appreciate, acknowledge, care for, and celebrate the important moms, grandmas, aunts, sisters, and women in our lives. Thank you for everything you do!


We are excited to bring back traditional and new experiences for our Wildcats this spring. Big Brothers of Vancouver started their Game On! program at Woodward this week for boys in grades 4-7. Our student leaders are busy planning their stations for Sports Day and preparing for our final spirit day. Our intermediate teachers are getting excited for our day at Camp Jubilee. We are all enjoying the training and practices for our Minoru track meet. Our Family Teams are also being reorganized and we are eager to plan one big event later this year. Our spring looks very busy but also a lot of fun. We look forward to sharing these events and experiences with you.


Have a great weekend!
