Carter G. Woodson Elementary School

Principal's Message

Welcome to Woodson Elementary School! I feel very fortunate to be part of such a forward thinking, passionate staff and among such bright, problem-solving students. This is my seventeenth year in SCPS, second as Principal at Carter G. Woodson Elementary. Last year we reduced our referral numbers by 47% and I’m looking forward to seeing our referral numbers going down even more. I am also anticipating our PARCC scores t continue to climb, and more importantly, our teachers preparing our students to become life-long learners. This year we are focusing heavily on building relationships, so please feel free to come in, visit our classrooms, volunteer, or speak to me about any of your concerns. Let’s have a great year!
