Mrs. Squires taught Social Studies at Woodbury until she was no longer able to work due to ALS, also know as Lou Gehrig's disease. Sadly, she passed away over the summer. The Woodbury community is grateful for her service and we wish her family strength as they work through this dark time. Her Celebration of Life will be held at Holy Family Church (4490 S. Mountain Vista St, Las Vegas, NV 89121) on Thursday, August 8, 2019 at 10:00 am. The Squires family thanks everyone for the well wishes & prayers during this difficult time.
It took eighteen years. This year, Woodbury participated in the Bristlecone Storytelling Festival. Students worked in the library everyday to hone their craft as storytellers. On May 1, our school champions represented Woodbury at the Eastern Region Bristlecone Storytelling Festival. They were amazing!
The Basketball Banquet honored not only our girls and boys basketball players, but Coach Lopez.
Four of our students made the trek across the valley to the CCSD Poetry Jam event. Great job!
The National Junior Honor Society raised $659.39 to give to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Way to go!
Woodbury celebrated a fantastic Nevada Reading Week as we Found Our Superpowers by Reading! We honored this annual event from February 25 to March 1. We hosted author Laurie B. Arnold. She traveled from Washington to do an assembly for our 6th graders. In addition, there were spirit days, so students dressed for fun. The coolest theme had kids generate their superhero names and then wear them on MY NAME IS tags. We had a great turnout for our book swap which allowed students to exchange their old books for new ones. We also had Book Bingo every morning and a Mystery Game Master Contest. Some students went on a Reading Tour and read to Longhorns in other classrooms. There was also a Bookmark Contest. Our Scavenger Hunt had kids doing literacy tasks to earn tubs of Jelly Bellys. As Poetry Jam ran through the week, there was a poetry contest. You can read the winning poems below. We had a fabulous Door Decorating Contest. Roxanne Franco’s classroom won first place and the 200s hallway won the Spirit Award. We even had a Reading Plus Contest. Mr. Hager’s period 1 and 2 class won by completing 69 combos!
He flipped through a book
About a hero and a crook
He wanted to be a hero
That saves the world in a cape
He thought he was too weak
and he became sad
But he then realized reading is the best power he had
I can not help but stop and look at the supergirl.
Doesn’t she look wonderful with her bright, pink, sparkly cape on?
Does it make you blush?
Reading! It’s such a great thing.
Find your superpower
and use it to climb that reading tower!
Woodbury students raised $405.73 for the Salvation Army! Mrs. Carmen Franco's 6th period raised the most at $121.00. NJHS would like to thank everyone who donated!
