Letter from the Principal
Welcome to the Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School. Many factors go into providing students with the superior education they will receive at Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School. Teachers and staff are committed to creating and maintaining a safe learning environment for all students. Together, we work every day to provide students with a positive, caring school climate and culture to enable them to blossom intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
At Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School, teachers are committed to helping every child maximize his or her potential. Technology is incorporated into the learning process and teachers focus on expanding student's creativity to help them solve real world problems. By focusing on the child as a whole, teachers are helping students develop life-long learning skills.

In addition to developing academic skills, we work to develop good individual character and citizenship in every student. A school with a positive climate is one where students and staff are kind, caring, and help one another in every way possible, every day. 

Numerous studies show that children do better in school when their parents/guardians are involved and take an interest in their education. Parents/guardians, please take advantage of the many opportunities you will have to be involved in your child's education and maintain an open line of communication with your child's teachers throughout the entire school year. 

Students, come to school prepared to be engaged and challenged by your teachers each day and they will help you achieve your personal best. At Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School, we are committed to helping every child, every day, whatever it takes.

  • Wednesday, January 28th, 2015, has been changed from an early dismissal day to a full day of school for staff and for students in grades pre-K through 8.
    This change is being made in the event that the district needs to schedule a delayed opening on Wednesday, due to inclement weather.
    Therefore, there will be a full day of instruction for pre-K through grade 8 students on Wednesday, January 28, 2015. An early dismissal day will be rescheduled at a later date and parents will be notified in a timely manner.

    Please note, the high school will maintain the final exam schedule on Wednesday, January 28t\ 2015, for staff and for students. Refer to the high school website for exam times and for the modified schedule.

    The change in the district calendar will necessitate an extension for the issuance of report cards/grade reports in the district.  Report cards will be issued on Friday, February 6, 2015.
