Hi Woodward families!


What a great week at Woodward! Field trips have started, and creative projects are popping up in all our classes. We appreciate the hard work of our teachers and staff to create engaging and thoughtful year-end experiences and learning.


Our grade sixes and sevens also enjoyed an amazing day at Camp Jubilee. Thank you to Ms. Bath, Mr. Loewen, and Mr. Yodogawa for your organization, planning, and supervision.
