Connect the Dots
The 2014 Week of Understanding is March 24-28.
This year’s theme of “Connect the Dots” encourages students to understand, appreciate, and validate the interconnectedness of Woodward Academy.
For example, a student may reflect on the impact a teacher in the primary school had on their course decisions in upper school. A student’s success in a lower school choir performance may lead to a love of drama throughout their remaining years at Woodward. Positive experiences on feeder teams obviously influence students’ athletic pursuits.
Screening of the documentary "Bully"
Woodward implemented an anti-bullying policy last year to prevent bullying behavior at all levels of the Academy. In an effort to create an opportunity for open dialogue about the negative impacts of bullying, Woodward will be screening the award-winning documentary film “Bully” as a highlight of Week of Understanding.
- Members of the Woodward community are cordially invited to attend the evening screening of the film on Tuesday, March 25, at 6:30 p.m., in Richardson Theater on Woodward’s Main Campus
- Upper School students will view the film on Friday, March 21.
- Middle School students will view an edited PG version of the film on Monday, March 24
- Mr. Hirsch also will speak to Upper School and Middle School students at special assemblies during the school day on March 25.
Due to strong content, this film is not recommended for younger children.
