    Principal's Message

    Dear Woodward Family, 

     Woodward Avenue Elementary School is located in the southwest area of DeLand.  We serve approximately 580 students in grades kindergarten through fifth as well as 20 preschool students. We are a Title 1 school.  We use these funds to provide resources to our students with academic needs and we are very successful in doing so.  We celebrate earning another A under our state’s accountability system.  

    Woodward Avenue Elementary is host to many programs that enhance our school and our core academic programs. We also offer gifted and talented enrichment and acceleration for students K-5 and single gender classes for students K – 4.  Targeted reading interventions are available for students who need extra support and all students participate in art, music, and physical education  classes on a rotating basis. Families may also access after school daycare through our Extended Day Enrichment Program.  

    As the principal at Woodward Avenue,  I have the pleasure of working with a community that values education. Parents are involved and supportive. They contribute countless hours of volunteer time by assisting in classrooms or supporting our PTA events. The staff are professionals who are passionate about going the extra mile to do what it takes for each student to experience success. We are a family school, come join our family!​

    Yours in Education, 

    Kate Godbee
