Welcome Woodward Wildcats!


Here are some things we will be learning in Ms. Parker and Ms. Little’s 1st grade class this month and part of next month! We celebrated College and Career Day on November 13, 2015 and we are excited about what we want to be when we grow up! Take a look at us:

We also got a chance to tour the police car and talk to Officer Carlos as he told us about his job. We love our police officers who help keep us safe! This tied in to us learning about goods and services and students were able to connect this job to a service provided to our community.  
2015 School Crashers Winners

Congratulations to Woodward Elementary School!

Georgia United is excited to announce the WINNER of its 2nd annual SCHOOL CRASHERS program… Woodward Elementary School of DeKalb County! Woodward was chosen from among hundreds of nominations from schools across the state. Georgia United’s judges had a difficult time choosing just one winner from so many deserving applicants.

School Crashers is a unique program from Georgia United, which offers local schools the opportunity to apply for a facility “makeover.” The goal of the program is to bring communities together to support local schools and their school systems. Any public, private or parochial school in Georgia was eligible to submit a 250 word statement why their school should receive a makeover. The winning school was announced today with Donna Lowry, education reporter from 11 Alive, along with DeKalb County Superintendent Michael Thurmond and Georgia United CEO Debbie Smith.
