The Woodley Story

The Wildcats Give Back

posted Apr 16, 2014, 6:13 AM by Dena Davis

Some months back, the students of Woodley discussed the Governor's Partnership and the relationship we have with Parkway Heights. The students mentioned how, since we get so much from our community partner, we should it turn, pay it forward. That's what got the ball rolling and we decided to make a book donation to the ARC of Hattiesburg. The library spring book fair was last week and we got a Clifford and Geronimo Stilton costume and with several students on board, went after school to bring the books to the center. It was a huge success. Both the ARC students and our students were so excited. It was a wonderful time for all.

The Eye of the Tiger- Hattiesburg Zoo visit

posted Mar 8, 2014, 2:49 PM by Dena Davis

At Woodley Elementary school today, the Hattiesburg Zoo announced the addition of two Sumatran Tigers to the zoo’s animal collection. Two students were chosen from each grade (3-6) to help with the unveiling of this exciting information. The students got to hold some of the animals that you can see when visiting the zoo like a corn snake, rex rats, bearded dragons, and more. Coming to Hattiesburg from the Los Angeles Zoo, the two brothers will make their grand debut during a public unveiling Saturday at the Hattiesburg Zoo. The male siblings were born on August 6, 2011 at the Los Angeles Zoo and given the names Kuasa and Cinta. Today, the tigers each weigh more than 200 pounds and are much smaller than the zoo’s existing Siberian tiger, Tigger.  “Kuasa and Cinta are young and very active,” said Katie Barry, Animal Curator. “They love to play in the water and with as many toys as they can get their paws on. Their youthful playfulness brings an excitement that our patrons will find entertaining and educational as they watch these young brothers grow up.” Sumatran tigers hail from the Indonesian island of Sumatra, where it is estimated that there are currently between 400 and 700 tigers living in the wild. It’s important to emphasize the necessity to conserve the habit for these and all animals to the children of today, so that they will be around for future generations to enjoy. 

Black History Program 2014

posted Mar 8, 2014, 2:42 PM by Dena Davis

In the absence of a planner, the Woodley Beta Club and student counsel stepped forward and volunteered to plan, host and perform this year’s Black History Program. The program began with reenactment of a rally, carrying signs reminiscent of those carried by Civil Right protestors that read, “We Demand Equal Housing” “End Segregated Rules in Public School” and “We Demand Voting Right Now!” Mrs. Lee’s kindergarten class read descriptions of important African Americans and Ms. Varnado’s 2nd grade class, did the skit, “No Room on the Bus,” portraying the conflict that occurred on December 1, 1955 when Rosa Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake's order that she give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled. The skit was followed by a discussion of the Little Rock Nine and a “Who Am I?” of Black American historical figures. The afternoon was a huge success. Special thanks to Ms. Washington, the 6th grade Beta club sponsor and all those teachers who took time to teach their students the importance of learning the history of this great country.
