On Saturday, April 25, 2015, Andy Woods will host our fifth annual fun run. The proceeds for Run for the Woods will benefit the school and the community because all of the proceeds will be used to help Andy Woods bring “The Leader in Me” to our school! Schools across America have been successfully incorporating the Leader in Me, which includes the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and other basic leadership skills, into their core curriculum in unique and creative ways. The results have been phenomenal! Schools are reporting improvements in academic scores, reduced discipline problems, greater parent satisfaction, soaring student self-confidence, improved school cultures, increased teacher pride, and a refined focus on twenty-first century skills. This is your opportunity to help build 21st century leaders at A ndy Woods Elementary!

As always, part of our school’s mission is to promote happy, healthy children. Last year, our Run for the WOODS! helped one of our very own students, Meadow Johnson. Meadow has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Meadow was born with a genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis, or NF1. This condition causes tumors to grow anywhere on or in the body along various types of nerves and, in addition, can affect the development of non-nervous tissues such as bones and skin. All proceeds from this event went to the Meadow Johnson family to help with medical expenses.
