Elementary School
Community Partnerships

Foster Grandparents: Woodcrest participates in the Foster Grandparent program through First Link. Foster grandparents work with students that may need one-on-one assistance in math or reading.

Books for Break: Our neighborhood civic association provides students with free books during every break.

Capital University Reading Tutoring: We have a partnership with Capital University for an after school free reading program. Woodcrest students receive reading support from college students majoring in education.
Penny Harvest: Student leaders are selected to work with the school in a service learning project called Penny Harvest. Students raise money, learn about different community needs and decide organizations to support with the money raised.  

Site Based Council: The Site Based Council at Woodcrest Elementary School is a collection of parents, community members, and staff members that work to ensure that the Woodcrest community and Woodcrest families are having a positive experience at Woodcrest and their voices can be heard. The council meets monthly. This year the council reviewed the parent survey data from the 2013-2014 school year. Based upon this information, the council created a parent survey regarding the year round calendar. The results were overwhelming in favor of the year round calendar. The council is also working on a Safety Day for September 16, 2015. During Safety Day, students and families will have presentations by the Columbus Police Department, the Columbus Fire Department and Fire Safety House and information on stranger danger and cyber bullying.
