Woodside Avenue School is nestled among the trees in suburban Franklin Lakes, NJ. Its warm, inviting appearance reflects the supportive, team approach espoused by its 65 highly committed professional staff. Woodside serves a school community of approximately 300 students grades K-5, including three special education classes. Once within its walls, one immediately senses the commitment to providing a positive learning environment for its students; one in which individual differences are paramount in the development of age-appropriate activities, and in which students develop the tools to become self-sufficient, life-long learners. A highly skilled staff utilizes the most effective teaching strategies to accomplish these goals.

As Election Day approached, fifth graders took on a leadership role in our school as they promoted the upcoming election. Fifth graders visited classrooms in each grade to talk about the school election, and to give more information about each of the activities students would be voting on. On Election Day, every child in the school got to cast their vote and choose their top five activities for Spirit Week. The five activities that received the most votes and will take place during Spirit Week are detailed below.
We want to thank the PTA for providing such an authentic experience at our very own voting location. The voting booth, decorations, stickers, and sign in process helped make this both an enjoyable and educational experience.
