    Egg Hunts

    Students in multiple grade levels participated in Egg Hunts at school on Friday, April 15.  Teachers hid eggs on the playground and then allowed students to come out and hunt for them.  To insure that everyone found eggs, the first round of the hunt, every student was limited to 10 eggs.  After students found 10 eggs they had to stop and gather together.  During round two, all eggs were for who ever found them first.  Students had a wonderful time finding eggs and some students even helped other students find eggs.

    Read Across America

    To celebrate and encourage reading, members of West Blocton High School's band, cheerleaders, and football teams came to read to Woodstock students.  First, a school-wide pep rally was held where students heard the band play the West Blocton fight song, alum mater, and other peppy songs.  They also heard from Woodstock's principal, Mrs. Shea Essman and West Blocton's new football coach, Dre'Mail King talk about the importance of reading.

    kids dressed as Dalmatians

  • Shark Tooth Creek

    kids with shark teeth in hand

    Even though it was a cold and rainy day, the fourth graders at Woodstock Elementary School thoroughly enjoyed their field trip to Shark Tooth Creek in Aliceville, Alabama on October 29th.  They enjoyed learning about the history of why the shark teeth were there. Then students eagerly searched the creek banks finding teeth and putting them into their baggies.  Students enjoyed comparing their findings and spending time outside of the classroom. The two students whose baggies weighed the most received a prize. Kylie Parker and Cleiver Lopez won those honors.  Also, Sophia Trammell and Connor Davis, the two students who found the biggest teeth, were awarded prizes.  AJ Palmer, a fourth grader in Mrs. Lightsey's class, stated that he was excited to go on the field trip and to see the big and small shark teeth in the creek banks. Sophia Trammell, also in Mrs. Lightsey's class, said that she never dreamed there'd be that many teeth in the creek.
