Primary School - October Edition

Primary School Parents

During a recent Parent Community board meeting, we had an opportunity to hear from Marcia Prewitt Spiller, Vice President and Dean for Academic Affairs. Ms. Spiller spoke to us about the influence and value that personal opinions and experiences have in teaching others about our school. Families don't choose to come to Woodward Academy simply because of our marketing efforts on our website and in our brochures. The feedback that parents receive from faculty, staff, students and parents truly makes a difference in their decision to come to Woodward. Ms. Spiller is a prime example. She initially became interested in Woodward based on a "word-of mouth" campaign and later enrolled her own children (now graduates).

Therefore parents, I encourage you to continue to be positive ambassadors for our wonderful school. Wear your WA t-shirts proudly to the grocery stores and parks in your local communities. Prominently display your bumper stickers on your cars, as you are communicating your support of the Academy by doing so. If you love our school, promote it by simply telling someone! One of the purposes of the Parent Community is to support the Academy. It is vital to the success of our school.

If you haven't already done so, please take a moment to sign up for upcoming Parent Community sponsored events. You can signup to volunteer for scheduled events by simply clicking on the links below. Please continue to send any inquiries or suggestions to us at
