A Note From Mr. Snyder...
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Woodland Middle School! The middle school years provide exciting and challenging learning opportunities for students both in and out of the classroom. Please be assured that the Woodland Middle School faculty will provide a rigorous academic program, enriching extracurricular activities, and high expectations for all. However, we cannot guarantee your child's success on that alone. Children receive the best education when teachers and parents work together as a team. I encourage you to take time from your busy schedule to become familiar with our school and be active participants in your child's education both at school and at home. If there is ever any way that I, my assistant principals, or staff can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to call upon us.
