Congratulations to Ben Carter, who placed 4th of 30 in his first-ever impromptu debate event, The Eagle Open, at William G. Enloe HS, October 24, 2015!
Newly-elected Student Council representatives spent a day off-campus practicing problem-solving and effective group communication strategies. The team planned a full calendar of exciting community events and activities for the 2015-16 school year.
This year's Debate Team line-up features seasoned arguers and is the strongest ever at Woods. They head to Raleigh this weekend for another tournament.
Teachers of writing gathered for a colloquium on "voice"--Woods English teachers Mr. Jester and Ms. Finkelstein were joined by colleagues from Woods, Voyager Academy, Durham School of the Arts, Orange Charter School, Carolina Friends School and Chatham Charter.
Four Woods students traveled to the Day of the Girl Summit at the United Nations to see their work performed as part of Girls Speak Out, an event celebrating girls and girl leadership. At Woods, they participate in Girls Learn International, a club that raises awareness about the need for girls' access to education around the world.
Welcome to Woods!
Learning takes many forms and happens inside and outside of our classrooms and school building. See what you think!
