Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence

Woodland envisions producing students who are educated, cultured, and experienced in reasoning critically, while contributing as a productive member of our school and community.  This is accomplished by providing cooperative and meaningful learning opportunities within a diverse community where each child is challenged to reach his or her maximum competency as a lifelong learner.  Find out more on our "School Information" page

Community Connections

Good Night, Sleep Tight, Let's Read a Good Book Tonight:

We have a wonderful opportunity to provide children of our community with a cozy pair of pajamas, while also sharing our love for reading.  Scholastic Book Club has agreed to donate a book, for every pair of pajamas we collect.  We plan to include the pajamas and books in the holiday gifts for the children being sponsored at Woodland.  Any extra items will be donated to local charities to assist in their giving efforts this holiday season.  If you would like to participate in this wonderful GIVING opportunity, please send in a pair of unwrapped pajamas in children’s sizes small to large.  Just contribute a pair that would fit your own child and that will ensure we have a variety of sizes.  We will be collecting the pajamas until Thursday, December 14, 2017.  

Thank you for helping bring the joy of reading to a child.

Happy Holidays,

Woodland’s Community Connections Committee

Thanksgiving Food Drive:

Thank you, Woodland Students!  Because of your donations, we were able to help 23 families receive a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.  Our next Community Connections project will be announced soon.  So stay tuned.

Pennies for Many:

WOW!!!   We collected $915.60 for our hurricane victims.   We presented that to the Red Cross on September 29th during a school wide gathering.  Thanks to each of you who contributed to this very special Community Connection.   Our students are learning the importance of helping others within and outside of our Johnson City community. 

From Our School Counselor, Mrs. Jacobs

We are doing our safety unit in guidance class for all students. Safe at Last is a personal safety curriculum that empowers K-4 students by providing critical skills and tools to stay safe and avoid dangerous situations.  The program includes age-appropriate learning techniques such as role-play, music, puppetry, games, stories, and videos.  If you would like to look at any materials, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our School-wide Makerspace

Makerspace

Thank you for your many, many donations!   Mr. Simerly is working hard to create this very unique learning space for our students.  Remember to send any extra crayons, markers, papers, cardboard, boxes, etc. that could be used to construct student projects within this special Woodland creation space.  Your donations will be put to good use! 

Morning Arrival/Drop-Off Times

Please remember that we must not drop-off students before 7:45 AM. 

It is very unsafe to do so because our teachers and support staff are not on duty until 7:45 AM.  

In short, student supervision begins at 7:45 AM each school day.  A special thanks to our Related Arts’ teachers ​and Officer Hilton for their daily service as our morning supervision team.  It truly takes a village!

Visitor Check-In / Check-Out System

The safety of all students is our number one priority at Johnson City Schools. In an ongoing effort to improve safety, we are implementing district-wide check in and check out procedures at each school location.  These procedures will help us keep track of who is in our buildings at all times.

Please wear your visitor badge visibly while in the building.  Thank you.
