WJHS Students Named as NSPA Award Finalists

The National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) announced individual award finalists. Last year's Woodland Yearbook staff members, Rose Long, Finn Lawless, and Ariadna Ramirez, were named as finalists for their work included in our school yearbook, The Round-Up.

Rose Long and Finn Lawless were named finalists in the Photo of the Year category, while Ariadna Ramirez was named a finalist in the Design of the Year category. 

This means those two photos are two of the ten best photos in the country, and Ariadna's design is one of the best ten in the country!

We are so proud of these young journalists and the work they did under yearbook adviser, Mr. Andrew Young!

NSPA 2018 Middle School Individual Award Finalists
Literacy Event Kick-Off
All Woodland students received their own copies of Kwame Alexander's book The Crossover yesterday in advisory as part of a literacy event designed to encourage students to become more engaged in reading.

Students will participate in many activities related to this book including trivia and rap contests, a Skype interview with the author, and a family literacy dinner to be held in November. 
Additionally, Alexander will speak at the Fayetteville Public Library on Oct. 30. The Woodland/Ramay literacy project was made possible by a generous grant from the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation and Tyson Foods.
