In October 2022, the girls lacrosse team led by coach Kate Armstrong partnered with Delta TechOps on a service project to support United States service men and women who are currently overseas. The team gathered items for donation, wrote letters of appreciation, and packed and shipped 30 care packages that will be sent to three Navy ships–USS Farragut, USS Leyte Gulf, and USS Truxtun.
In November 2022, the Upper School Service Leadership Board invited students to write letters to veterans from the Woodward community and beyond to express gratitude for their service. Over 50 students volunteered to write letters of appreciation to veterans. They wrote well over 100 notes of gratitude, including to current Woodward employees who are veterans.
