The Week at Woodward

This week at Woodward, students throughout the Academy celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and in the Primary School, that celebration came in the form of many excellent and thoughtful art projects.

Our pre-K students cut, glued, and pasted together portraits of Dr. King.

The finished projects by these four and five-year-olds.

In addition to our MLK projects, Woodward also hosted students from the Mingde School in China over the past couple of weeks. It's always a wonderful experience for our students and theirs to experience both the differences and, more importantly, the similarities between students half a world away from each other.

Beyond those two events, there was plenty more going on throughout the Woodward community this week, ranging from:

Wrestling championships...

...to college visit days...

...to new accolades for our outstanding Woodward Academy Student Publications team!
