Homecoming Shirt Orders
The Lower School students have been given a form to bring home for you to order for them (and yourself if you so desire) a 2014 WA Homecoming t-shirt. The cost of the shirt is $10. The form and payment MUST be turned into the homeroom teacher no later than Monday, September 29. The order has to be given to the Upper School by mid-afternoon on Monday for the shirts to be ordered and returned in time for Homecoming. If the form failed to make it home, click here for a copy.
Those students who purchase the shirt will be allowed out of uniform on Friday, October 17, to allow them to show their support of the Woodward Academy varsity football team. This is the day of the homecoming parade and football game.
Super Goober Day Important Ordering Information
Cakes, cakes, and more cakes - oh my! Just last week, we set a goal of collecting 100 cakes for the famous Super Goober Day Cake Walk, and we already reached that goal. We had so many cakes coming in that we had to cut off the donations. Thanks for stepping up and donating.
Super Goober Day is Friday, Oct. 3, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Don't be NUTS and wait in lines to buy tickets. Order now!
The Primary School and Lower School kids will eat lunch at school before the event. Woodward North kids have chosen to eat on the way to the event.
Kids will enjoy new rides, inflatables, face painting, entertainment, group art projects, crafts and wacky hair art. The Goober Store will have the ultimate in goodies. The concession stand will be on site for cash-only purchases, and a Yumbii gourmet food truck will be available for parents.
Please remember to VOLUNTEER. This is a Parent Community sponsored event and takes 350+ parent volunteer hours to make this fun and safe. We still have many hours to fill. Invite your friends to volunteer with you. http://www.woodward.edu/parents/pc/sgd/index.aspx

Lower School Intramurals
The Lower School sponsors an intramural sports program for boys and girls. Intramural programs generally run Monday through Thursday with a few exceptions (football and cheerleading). Students must have a signed permission form turned in by the first day of the activity. Permission forms are sport-specific and are available two weeks prior to the first day of the event. The events begin at 3:45 p.m. and end at 5:15 p.m.
We have record numbers of students participating in intramurals, and the coaches need time to prepare accordingly. Therefore, a student MUST have a signed permission slip by the Monday that the intramural activity begins or they will NOT be allowed to participate. Thank you for your cooperation as this will keep our program safe and successful! There will be a separate form for each sport they plan to participate in during the year. Again, the student must have the signed permission slip turned in prior to the start of the activity.
