Thanksgiving Break

Wildcats! What I love about Thanksgiving is that it's purely about getting together with friends or family and enjoying food. It's really for everybody and it doesn't matter where you're from. 

Ms. Barnett

Our Thanksgiving Break is November 21st through 25th


All future Wildcats are welcome to an Open House to learn more about Woodrow. November 16th at 6:00 p.m.

The event is intended for all 8th Grade students at J.L. Long and other feeder schools.  

Volunteers Needed!

We're in need of a few volunteers to ensure that the Welcome to Woodrow event for next week goes smoothly!  The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Big Gym with a Pep Rally.  Afterward, families will be invited to the Small Hym to speak with various student/teacher organizations and to tour the building.  The event should wrap up by 7:30 p.m.  

We'll need some assistance with directing families to the Big Gym for the beginning of the event as well as to answer questions during the event.
