November Updates

It’s been a while since my last check in so I thought I would share a bit about what’s been happening at Woodhaven Middle School . 

Remembrance Day 2018

The staff at Woodhaven was extremely proud of our students as we held our annual Remembrance Day Ceremony in our school gym. We are truly appreciative of the parents and Trustee Darlene Clarke who were able to join us for this important event. Check out some of the event in the pictures and video below.

Den Days Rolls On!

Over the past few weeks we’ve had some great Den Days activity and fun. Our Citizenship Ticket initiative led to all of our staff handing out tickets to students who were demonstrating good citizenship within our school throughout the week. We had everything from kids holding doors to cleaning hallways and supporting peers! It was great to see our kids being celebrated for simply being awesome!

There was also a bit of fun mixed in for Den Days as our PE team hosted some Den Days intramurals. Check out the video below.

Volleyball is winding down but fear not, Basketball is coming soon!

Students in grades 5&6 are having a great time as Fall Ball is officially underway. Our awesome PE team, along with some fantastic gr 8&9 volleyball players are teaching the game to our younger students. Not only is this a great opportunity for our younger kids, it’s also an opportunity for our bigger kids to serve as mentors and develop some leadership skills.


As has been our tradition, you can’t finish up a volleyball season without a staff vs student game. Lots of fun for everyone… and man those kids are good!


Art Club, Sr. Choir & Drama

We can’t forget about our awesome fine arts program under the leadership of Ms. Young, Ms. Weimer… and Mrs. Schaber who is running art club this year. Keep an eye out for my next blog post which will highlight our awesome kids in these groups.

Until next time…
