Principal's Message

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I welcome you to the Woodruff Primary School family!

We believe the community is important to children's educational success. We are thankful to be part of such a supportive community. Student achievement in a safe, secure learning environment is our primary goal. We appreciate you and your continuing support during the 2014-2015 school year.
