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!

Norman is a 60-year-old mouse...

Norman is a 60-year-old mouse who is named after his great-great-grandfather Norman Mousebeard. He always wears a top hat and bow tie; his greatest hobby is drawing, and he paints many self-portraits. Norman lives in a tin can behind the sink; whenever he ventures out from behind the sink, he almost gets stepped on. He dreams that one day he won’t be a mouse that everyone’s afraid of. Over time, Norman grows from being a shy mouse to one with a lot of courage.

Congratulations Bianca for being chosen
by Scholastic "Storyworks,"
out of 4,000 entries, in

Young Consumers Program
This winter, WAS third grade students were introduced to the Young Consumers Program, which is coordinated by Mrs. Hatley and conducted through a partnership with the ShopRite of Oakland. This exciting program allows schools, families, and ShopRite Supermarkets to partner together in an effort to enhance students' math, language arts, critical thinking, and social skills by engaging students in a variety of activities aligned with The Common Core.

Our third graders will use their knowledge of making healthy food choices when they attend the ShopRite Trip in the spring  as they "shop" for a pretend family of four with a budget of $100.


Thank you Mrs. Hatley for this outstanding work!
