Woodland Hills Family, we are so excited to see you (from a safe distance) TOMORROW for our parade! πŸ™‚ πŸ‘ Click the link below to see the route our staff will be driving. A school bus will be leading the parade, followed by all of the teachers and staff. πŸšŒπŸš—πŸš™πŸš—πŸš™πŸš—πŸš™ The route travels a majority of the Woodland Hills boundaries, but it does not cover every neighborhood or house. If the parade doesn’t pass directly by your home, we hope that you are able to make it to a different street on the route. ❀️🀞Please be mindful of social distancing. Thank You! πŸ‘‡Parade RouteπŸ‘‡ https://drive.google.com/file/d/17xrNfUt7vGNjiXGNaFmNkJk-eA-q5Z4p/view

Yesterday, 10 Woodland Hills students had the opportunity to participate in our first ever Waukee 5th Grade Honor Choir. The students had come in early before school for weeks to rehearse the music. Yesterday they spent the day rehearsing with other 5th graders in our district, synergizing to create an amazing concert last night. The students made us all proud by being leaders in their behavior, their hard work, and positive attitudes! Way to go, 5th Grade Honor Choir! :) #LEADAtWD

The leader in meAt Woodland Hills, we strongly believe that all students have leadership skills. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People are integrated into our current school traditions, systems, curriculum and culture, and work in close connection with our school-wide PBIS, guidance, and classroom curriculum. It is our goal for students to internalize the timeless leadership principles that nurture skills students need for success in the 21st century.
