     "Life is not about who is more popular than the other, or if people are 'cool' or not.  It's not even about who is the best at things.  Life is about who you are and who you will be when the time comes to do the right thing!"

  • We Need Your Assistance, Woodland!!

    Woodland Middle School is wanting to dedicate a wall in our entry way to the members of our Armed Forces and First responders. We would like to invite 6-8 community members who have an interest in honoring our local and national service members, and who may enjoy wood and/or metal working to join a committee with a purpose of helping to find resources and create ideas to bring this gratitude wall to life.

    Please contact Trayce Hemenway at themenway@cdaschools.org or 667-5996 by June 26th, if you are interested in supporting this worthy cause.
