Super Goober Day

 

Friday, October 4, 2019 – 12-3 p.m.

Super Goober Day is a long-standing tradition that dates back to our history as Georgia Military Academy. Once a parade for the younger students, who the older cadets referred to as “Little Goobers,” today it is a Woodward Academy Parent Community event. Super Goober Day has evolved into a huge fall festival for all Woodward Academy students and families, pre-kindergarten through sixth grade, complete with rides, games, food, and fun.
