Welcome to Woodburn Arthur Academy Charter School!
I am honored, as the principal, to lead the great group of students and staff that make up our school. Our mascot is the Knight. Just as the Knights of the Roundtable were dedicated to serve the King’s cause, our entire student body and staff are dedicated to our school motto: “Pay attention. Work hard. Get smart. Be proud!”
Proud students are confident students, and confident students make a great school and community. Our school is full of many confident students who all have a story to tell. The theme of their stories stem from the successes they have found through mastering our curriculum. Direct Instruction is the teaching model used to deliver the curriculum to our students.
Direct Instruction programs are used for teaching reading, oral and written language, spelling, and mathematics. Each program has a sequence of lessons for each school year from kindergarten through fifth grade. Students who successfully complete lessons throughout the year are well prepared for the following year and prepared for success at the next level.
Our school theme this year is, “Be a HERO.” Heroes can take many forms. As staff, we ourselves look for opportunities to be a HERO by Helping Every student Reach their Opportunities. We also seek to find students who are demonstrating characteristics of a HERO through outstanding behavior in the classroom and around our school campus. Demonstration of kind and exceptional behaviors are recognized and rewarded daily in the classroom and monthly at our Knights of the Round Table assemblies.
We are excited and have great anticipation for what can be accomplished each day by our amazing students! Each morning a staff member is at our front gate greeting them as they arrive to school. I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to become a part of our highly successful school.
