  • Celebration of Learning Open House

    Come Celebrate Our Learning!

    Parents and community members are invited to attend the Thursday, May 21st  “Celebration of Learning Open House,” a special opportunity to learn more about – and to experience – the innovative education taking place at

    Woodbury Elementary School.

    Before the school year comes to a close, we wanted to provide an opportunity for the community to have an up close and personal look at a variety of learning experiences ranging  from processes and procedures, games and manipulatives  to independent learning projects.  This educational culmination in academics and the arts features student work and student reflection on learning.

    The 5:30-7:00 p.m. celebration will be infused with joy when students take pride in their work and share their achievements with the community.   Our hope is that you take interest in student learning and feel free to ask questions.  Students will be set up in various classrooms throughout the building and all guests will be invited to circulate through examining and interacting at all grade levels.  

    Classrooms look and feel different today than they did when you were in school.  Please mark your calendars and be ready to come back to school and see all the great things kids today are learning.

  • Galaxy Bookshop Showcases 5th and 6th Grade Poetry

    In celebration of National Poetry Month, Galaxy Bookshop in Hardwick put up poetry written and illustrated by the 5th and 6th grade class from Woodbury Elementary!

    All students were asked to think of a vivid memory or dream that they could clearly picture in their mind and figure out how to recreate that memory or dream using words. They were asked to use several literary techniques including rhyme, sensory detail, alliteration, and onomatopoeia. Free verse was perfect for this poem because it allowed students to really experiment with format, structure, and length. You can see how different they all are.

    Each poem also has an illustration with it. This is the visual representation of the poem, designed to look like a photograph of the memory or dream! We encourage all Woodbury families to stop in at the Galaxy Bookstore to take a look at featured Woodbury student work.

     Galaxy Bookshop is located on 41 Main Street in Hardwick, and their hours are as followed: 

    Monday – Friday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

     Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
