School Is Canceled On April 26 And April 27

As you may have heard and been watching on the news, the Arizona Educators Association’s #RedforEd campaign has resulted in a vote to walk out in support of increased funding. We would like to inform our families of a possible walkout. We are aware that the walkout would begin on Thursday, April 26, 2018. We ask that you take a moment to view our frequently asked questions for parents, and read through the superintendent's recent letter to parents and families below for additional details on our district's plan.

Make a Wish

Mercedes Sloarez, a Woodard 7th grader, got her wish from the Make A Wish Foundation on February 14. She wished for a trip to Disney World for a five day all expenses paid vacation. The students and staff helped celebrate the announcement with an assembly of nearly 800 students, staff, and community members in attendance. Mercedes received a grand entrance to the assembly for the announcement from student council members, cheer members, band members, and the school staff. Mercedes received her wish because she has loeys-dietzs syndrome, a connective tissue disorder that is currently affecting her aorta. Join us in well wishes for Mercedes and her family on their trip!
