Attendance Reminders

With testing season approaching – here are a few reminders from the Attendance Office!

 Please note that there are no office helpers in the Attendance Office during 1st and 4th periods each day. This is why we ask parents to wait until after 10:00 a.m. to check a student out and to get them for afternoon appointments prior to 3:45 p.m. in the afternoon.

We also know that many students finish testing earlier than others and wish to go home when they have completed their tests. Attendance for the entire school day is required, even during testing days, as each period is included in the instructional minutes required to receive credit.  Additionally, students leaving early disrupts the testing environment for those who may still be completing their exams.

Please be reminded that all absences that are not accompanied by an excuse or doctor’s note will be marked as unexecused!

Dress Code Reminders

At Woodrow, we recognize the importance of individuality with regard to dress; however, the learning environment needs to be free of disruptions and distractions that dress code violations cause. 

Wildcats, we survived the winter months and spring has arrived! 

The Dress Code will be enforced once we return from Spring Break! 

Students that refuse to change or are unable to obtain a change of clothing from their parent/guardian will be issued a consequence. 

As a reminder:  

NO UGG Slippers of any sort 


NO Blue Jeans 

ID badges must be worn all day every day. This is a part of the dress code!

Brick Campaign

Help support Woodrow by purchasing a commemorative brick! 

The Class of 2003 installed the first commemorative bricks and benches in our horseshoe to create a Woodrow “Walk of Pride” seating area. You can purchase a brick for a student, an alumnus, your favorite teacher, or your class. 

Orders are taken during the school year through the end of May. Installation will happen over the summer break.

Pricing: Current students can purchase a brick for $45. Once a student has graduated the price of the bricks will increase to $90. 

Keep in mind that this is a Fundraiser and there is a limited amount of space in our courtyard.

Purchase a Brick

Spirit Shop

Spirit Shop will be selling all polos for $10. Please shop in person because there are no returns. We will discontinue polo sales at the end of this school year.

Spirit Shop hours through the end of March:

Thursday, March 23:  7:30 to 9:00 a.m.

Thursday, March 30:  7:30 to 9:00 a.m.

Congratulations to Aaron Maggard and Boyd Wanstrath for winning Boys A Consolation at the Cougar Tennis Varsity Spring Break Smash at Juan Seguin High School in Arlington on Thursday, March 9th!

Varsity Tennis will start matches for District on Thursday, March 29th. 


The Woodrow Wilson Boys and Girls Golf Teams competed in the Sherrill Shootout Tuesday, March 7 at Sherrill Park #1.  This was the final regular season tournament before Districts start after spring break. 

The boys team had their lowest team total of the year (335) in out-of-district competition but missed 3rd place by only 6 strokes. Drake Walsh led the way with a team low 79.

The girls played well in a stacked field and Maddie West led the way with a score of 80, which earned her T3 individual honors.  

The girls will start their post-season run at Districts on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 21 & 22 at Cedar Crest.
