Parent Community


A Message from Woodward Academy’s Parent Community

Often I am asked this question, "What does Parent Community do and where does all that money go?"

As parents of a student who attends Woodward Academy we are ALL "Parent Community". PC receives dues as part of every student’s tuition. No need to register or sign up. You are automatically enrolled!

Your dues help to fund all the wonderful events that are coordinated or supported by Parent Community for Woodward Academy. In each school's PC committee (PS, LS, MS, US and WN) and our Committees‐at‐large, (Concessions, Consignment Store, Parent Programming, Social, Super Goober Day, and Welcoming Committee) these committees organize many events that enhance both parent and student experiences at Woodward.

Here are just a few of the events that our students, parents, and the entire Woodward community enjoy:
PC Athletic Concession Stands
PC Consignment Shop
Teacher Appreciation Luncheons
Student Ice Cream Socials
College Fair
Donut Days
Holiday Decorations
Senior Last Blast
Exam Treats
Spring Fling
Book Fair

Now that list may seem a little long; however, that's only a small portion of what your Parent Community does to support our incredible Academy.

We are blessed to have our children attend this wonderful Academy, which offers endless possibilities and opportunities for our students to reach their greatest potential.

Let us all remember, regardless of your student’s talent or focus, as a Woodward Parent we are ALL Parent Community and we are ALL on the same team!

Best Wishes for a wonderful spring,
Rochelle Andrews
Parent Community President 2014-2015

Parent Programming Event - Transition to College: A Partnership for Success

Location: Gresham Chapel Activity Room
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Speakers: Joanne Brzinski, Ph.D. and Wendy Newby, Ph.D.

The transition to college is filled with excitement, opportunity and challenge. Preparing a child for the transition happens throughout the middle and high school years. What is your role as a parent in preparing a student for college? How do you develop the sense of autonomy, feelings of competence and positive anticipation for new kinds of learning and academic engagement in your child who is going away to live “independently” though will continue to be very dependent on family support? From the perspective of those of us who work with undergraduates, what are the characteristics of a successful student? How do we work as partners to create a successful college experience for all students? What are the particular challenges and solutions for students with special learning needs? These two seasoned educators will discuss successful transition experiences and the importance of parents during this process of growth and change.
