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.

 

     Together We Will Shoot for the Stars!

Veterans Day 2014



At Woodside Avenue School, Veterans Day began with our students sharing the following message:

Good Morning.

Today is an important day in America; it is Veterans Day. Today we celebrate a holiday dedicated to honoring all American veterans of all wars. It is because of these men and women that we are able to have the freedom that we do in this country. 

Veterans Day pays tribute to all American Veterans - living or dead. Today we give thanks to veterans who served their country in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or Marine Corps during both war and peacetime. 

If you know veterans or see them today, thank them for the services they have provided for us and for our freedom!

Thank you.

"I am a youth athlete.
I am brave and strong and talented. But I'm still just a kid. I am not perfect. I am a work in progress. I need you to be patient while I test the limits of my body and work through the emotions that come with success and failure. When I make a mistake, I wonder if you'll be disappointed. When I reach my goals, I look to see if you are watching. I am a youth athlete. I love my sport. You call it a competition. I call it playing the game. I want to win and have fun. I am a youth athlete. I am YOUR athlete. Winning feels great, but your praise feels infinitely better. Please remember these things and I promise to do my best and make you proud."
