Field Day at Anderson Park
Students may arrive at school at the normal time and ride the bus to the park, or meet at the park at 9:00. We will depart the park at 2:00 pm. Students may be picked up, with permission, or ride the bus back to school.
Students may not opt to leave early or ride with friends without parent permission.
Lunch will be provided but students should bring snacks and water bottles. Sunscreen, hats, and comfy clothes are recommended for a day outdoors.
AP Research Poster Session
Students will present year-long independent research projects featuring their intellectual passions. Each inquiry culminated in a 5000-word paper, 20-minute multimedia presentation, and a college-level poster displaying their findings.
An Excellent Educator!

NPR report on 2017 research findings
You may have noticed that the parking lot gets very full with all of the spring events, outings, guests, and student drivers. This year Woods has only granted permission to juniors and seniors to park on campus to alleviate the crowding. 10th grade students are not allowed to park in the Woods lot.
