Field Day Fun Day
Field day this year will be held on June 3rd and will be expanded beyond sports and games. This year we are planning for a day of fun outside with a portion of the day being used for team building and individual games and challenges and the other half for community partnerships.
We will be welcoming guests from Harvard University and the Think First Injury Prevention Program. They will share information and strategies for vehicle and bus safety, bicycle and pedestrian safety, playground safety, water safety, and violence prevention.
Kim Ivers from the Southborough Public Library will join students for a Summer Reading Kickoff presentation.
The Southborough Fire Department will be joining us to discuss summer safety and may even be bringing a vehicle for students to explore.
Finally, We are finalizing plans for a student-created art installation that will be hung in the building as a way for kids to leave their mark on Woodward.
Field Day T-shirts
Thanks to the SOS, all students will receive a Field Day t-shirt featuring the winning design!
Asian American & Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Heritage Month
During the month of May, the Northborough-Southborough Schools will be recognizing Asian American and Pacific Islander Month. The month of May is significant as it recognizes the immigration of Japanese people to the United States in 1843. Chinese workers played a prominent role in the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869.
As a district, we celebrate and honor Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders' impact on our society, culture, and history.
Colorín Colorado celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage all year long with books, activities, and classroom resources.
Drop off and parking lot safety
- Parents/ guardians are responsible for supervision until the first bell rings and students enter the building. Teachers are not on duty to help with arrival until 8:40 am.
- If your child would like to play, please park your vehicle in the lower lot so they are not passing between cars in the active drop-off line. Students who wish to play should use the field, not the basketball court.
- As always, please proceed with caution when dropping off and do not pass other vehicles that are in the unloading process.
- Please have your students exit the vehicle from the passenger side door so they can avoid walking in front of or behind vehicles.
Incoming Grade 2 Parent Orientation Update
As a reminder, our incoming grade 2 parent orientation was rescheduled for the evening of May 24th. This event, which will be held in person in the Woodward cafeteria from 6:00-7:00 pm, is designed to give parents and guardians valuable information about their child's transition to Woodward and what to expect. This event is for parents and guardians only. Your incoming 2nd grader will have an opportunity to visit Woodward during our transition day in June. More information will be shared on that day soon.
We hope you are able to make the new date of May 24th to meet staff and see our beautiful building.
