Woodward Newsletter #33 - May 20, 2022

Hi Woodward families!


It was another great week of learning at Woodward. This was a great week at Woodward. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm.


Our Wildcats flourished at our district track meet at Minoru this week. Not only did our athletics shine but so did our sportsmanship, citizenship, and behaviour. Our competition (other schools) frequently congratulated our students for doing so well and having fun throughout the day. We truly appreciate them for having such an amazing day. We also appreciate the support and contributions from our parents. You made our day a success!


We also met our newest Wildcats at Welcome to Kindergarten this week. These amazing kids cut, coloured, and played with our student leaders and staff this week. We are so excited to see them again in September.


Have a great long weekend!


Pro-D Day and Victoria Day

Woodward will be closed to students for our May 20th pro-d day and the Victoria Day holiday. We hope you enjoy this extra-long weekend with your family.
