Our school is creating a plan for a K-8 model. This model will be presented to our School Board for their input and approval. The creation of this plan does not necessarily mean that Woodriver will be a K-8 school. Our School Board has asked each elementary school for a plan on how we would incorporate 7th and 8th grade students into our school and is an attempt to provide parents with additional choices about how their students receive their education. Your input is valued and your responses to this survey will help us in the creation of our model. It is important to note that just because there are questions asked about options or programs, that does not mean they will end up as part of the plan. We are limited by space and the resources available to our building. Currently we have one room available to use as a potential classroom. Our goal is to get a better idea about the needs/wants of our Woodriver school community and hope you will spend a couple of minutes providing us with your feedback. Click on the link below to start the survey. Thank you!
