Get Involved in Student Clubs!
Teachers keep students busily engaged in many lunchtime activities. If your child is feeling bored or lonely over the lunch hour, encourage them to consider joining one of tour clubs.

Wednesday Sewing Club Student Interest Meeting
Come learn to sew by hand and machine! We have many functional sewing machines at Woodman School. Students (all grades) are invited to visit with Ms. Shaw over the lunch hour in Room 5 to inspect the sewing machines and learn more about the club. It will run after school on Thursdays (3:45-4:30). Students are invited to bring their own fabric and thread. Students will complete a lap quilt through this club.
Thursday Student Newspaper Club
Last year, students (all grades) launched a successful monthly student newspaper, entitled, The Woodman Howl. Topics include feature stories about Woodman staff, highlights of fictional writing, current topics of interest for youth, and school library book reviews. We are particularly interested in showcasing students’ home languages and cultures through the newspaper. The club, led by students and facilitated by Mme. Krickhan, runs in the Learning Commons during lunch hour every Thursday.
