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

We may have a future author on our hands! Take a look at how a 4th grader is applying his learning with nouns, adjectives, and verbs. He even wants to start a school newspaper! #Habit8 #FindYourVoice

Great Happens Here

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.
