Mt. Woodson Elementary School is more than just an elementary school. It is a professional learning community full of professionals, parents, community members, and best of all, scholars who keep our focus on the learning and growing of our entire community.

Throughout this school year, we continue to pursue our work with developing critical thinking and problem solving skills in every child. Students collaborate and communicate with each other regularly and through different ways to create and be innovative. We maintain our focus on the exceptional systems that make our culture what it is…student-centered, hard-working, and results driven. With the addition of systems to support student learning, like Writer’s Workshop and Lucy Calkin’s Units of Study to enhance writing skills across all curricular areas, our scholars will improve their critical skills to help make them career and college ready.

With the help of our dedicated and hard-working PTA and Foundation, we are getting closer to my own personal BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) of 1:1 hand-held technology for each of our students. Any help or support you can offer to get the technology tools into our students’ hands is greatly appreciated.

If you ever have any questions, concerns or ideas, please talk to us. Feel free to stop by, give us a call, or send us an e-mail. We'd love to hear from you. Thank you for your support of your scholars and our school.
