I am Ingrid Colvard, and I am delighted to serve the community as principal of Woodland Primary School! Our team is dedicated to ensuring that every child receives a world-class education and achieves at high levels. We know that for this to be a reality, we need the support and partnership of our families and stakeholders. So please know that you are needed and welcome- our doors are open to you!
Meaningful learning happens only when children feel safe and can apply what they know. For this reason, we vow at Woodland Primary School to create a learning community where play and exploration are valued as critical elements of our educational program, and where adults and children alike join together to discover new things every day. Most importantly, we want your children to be nurtured and for school to be a place of joy. When these elements come together, all of our young learners thrive and blossom academically, socially and emotionally.
I am supported by my amazing husband of 29 years, Duane, in this very important work. While our two daughters have grown into young women, they continue to energize me to create the school experience I wished for them as they were being educated. The primary years are so very critical. Children grow in their independence, the world opens to them as they become readers, and they learn to trust in their own ability to think critically and solve problems creatively. It is our mission at Woodland Primary School to create a learning community that supports every one of our young people to reach great heights in their learning and in their development as a whole child. I am incredibly honored to serve your children each day, and I delight in the opportunity to deeply know our Woodland families and community. Welcome to an amazing year!
