WN Back-to-School

Welcome to Woodward North

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Woodward North! We are so excited about the journey ahead, and we look forward to working closely with you to ensure that your children reach their fullest potential.

Already, our faculty is planning for a 2017-2018 school year rich in opportunities for growth in academics, athletics, the arts, and character education. In this packet, you will find information to assist you with planning ahead for next school year. Look for an email in June with more details, including everything you need to know for the start of school.

Please save the date for a new family orientation on Tuesday, August 15 at Woodward North. Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students, along with their parents, will have the opportunity to meet teachers and see their classrooms from 4 to 5 p.m., and students in first through sixth grades should plan to attend with their parents from 7 to 8 p.m.

On registration day, Wednesday, August 16, students are required to wear their uniforms and arrive between 8 and 10 a.m. with a parent. Students will meet their teachers, and parents will have the opportunity to volunteer for Parent Community activities and sign up for cocurricular activities offered throughout the year. The first day of school, Thursday, August 17, will be the beginning of a wonderful year.

In my own time as a Woodward parent, I was moved and delighted by the warm guidance that my children received every year at the Academy. Working together, our school and your home will provide a firm foundation on which your students can build their futures.

Meanwhile, we hope that you and your children enjoy a fantastic summer. If you have any questions during the summer, please call our front office at 404.765.4490. Voicemail messages will be answered in a timely manner.

Thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children.

Principal, Woodward North
