WOODWARD ACADEMY - DECEMBER UPDATE

MIDDLE SCHOOL DECEMBER CHILD PROJECT

In December, for the eighteenth year, we will work with DFACS as Homeroom Secret Santas to provide toys and clothing to children in South Fulton County foster care. This project is organized by Mrs. Finch and led by the Middle School faculty and staff. This project is very special and is very near and dear to our hearts. Each holiday season, our Middle School students raise money and purchase gifts for the child their homeroom sponsors. Our charity project will kick off as soon as we return from the Thanksgiving holiday. Please look for more specific information from your child's homeroom teacher later this month.


We thank you in advance for your support.

HOLIDAY DECORATIONS, NOVEMBER 30

We will be decorating the Middle School for the holiday season on Monday, November 30, beginning at 9 a.m. and will take down the decorations on December 18, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Remember to provide a hearty breakfast for your MS Student during MS exams. To help with this, the Middle School Parent Community will provide biscuits for students each morning during MS exams. The biscuits will be in the cafeteria and will be served on a first come first served basis. We wish all students the best of luck during winter exams.
