    Principal's Message


    Superstar Parents and Students,

    My name is Carlos Scott and I am extremely humbled and pleased to be named Principal of Woodward Avenue Elementary, a school with such rich tradition and a legacy of academic excellence.  Working seventeen years for Volusia County Schools, I have had the opportunity to serve as a teacher at Sunrise Elementary and Assistant Principal at DeLand High School.  My years of experience have helped me to realize the importance of engaging all stakeholders in the learning process of our students.  

    As a life-long learner, I’m very passionate about education.  I have experienced firsthand the impact a quality education can have on a young person’s life.  Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe by working together, we can ensure your child’s academic, emotional, and social needs are met.  I look forward to partnering with you to provide all students a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality elementary school experience. 

    It is my belief that Superstars Always RISE to the Top!  Therefore, to make this belief a reality for all Woodward students, we must provide avenues for relationship building and collaboration, allow students to engage in productive struggle, use technology to enhance learning, and continue to progress-monitor students’ assessment results to identify areas of focus. 
    Our mission is simple: Teach Every Kid, Every Day!

    The faculty and staff of Woodward Elementary believes learning should be fun and an elementary school should pave the way for a lifetime of learning.  We encourage you to join our quest to make a positive difference in every child’s life.  Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and School Advisory Council (SAC) are great organizations with the goal of improving the academic performance of all students.  With your support, our students will excel academically, and Woodward will once again be an “A” school.

    Always Thankful,

    Carlos M. Scott
    Woodward Avenue Elementary
