J.E. Woodard Elementary School


      • Principal Carol Ann Jent and AP WolaverDear Parents and Guardians:

        Welcome to Woodard Elementary School. It is our pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year. We are excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways--- filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of our Woodard Wildcat family. At Woodard, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. We believe all students should leave us and be prepared for the demands of middle school. We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners!

        As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure our children reach their full potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

        Throughout the year, we look forward to meeting the new members of our community and connecting with returning community members. We encourage families to get to know each other so that we can build new friendships and support each other as the need arises. With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Woodard Elementary School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTA, special event participation, or member of one of our school communities, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

        We are honored to serve as the administrative team of Woodard Elementary. It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support life-long learning. During our school year, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you have.
