Woodland Elementary Curriculum
Avondale School District’s elementary curriculum aligns with National and State Standards while also taking each student's learning level into consideration and incorporating Project Based Learning and Design Thinking practices. Our unique curriculum is targeted at helping every student set the stage for a lifetime of learning. Throughout the school district, we utilize technology in the classroom and in the computer labs to enhance our curriculum. At the elementary level, providing students with a solid foundation in core subjects such as mathematics, literacy, social studies, and science, helps them prepare for the future and for the career and college readiness skills they will need after they graduate.

Avondale K-5 Career Development
Students begin to develop ideas about jobs and the world of work at a young age, but they only know what they have seen or experienced. Often, this is a very limited view. At the elementary schools, it is our mission to help students dive in to all 6 Michigan Career Clusters and be exposed to a multitude of possible careers. We have created many intentional activities and events that are completed throughout the year.
Elementary Activities & Events
- K-5 Job of the Week (174 covered in 6 years)
- K-5 "Careers in a Box" Career Cluster lessons available to all teachers
- 2nd grade Career Booklets completed throughout the year, sent home in May as a great keepsake!

A Woodland Wildcat Always R.O.A.R.S.
Woodland Elementary School also implements Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), which explicitly teaches what behaviors are expected to create a positive learning environment. We like to say that "A Woodland Wildcat Always R.O.A.R.S." – which stands for being Respectful, Organized, Attentive, Responsible and Safe. Together, Woodland Elementary students and staff created our R.O.A.R.S. expectations and our R.O.A.R.S. matrix describes what behaviors should look and sound like in different areas of our building. Within each classroom, students and teachers participate in lessons that focus on specific behaviors and enhance the climate in our building. We believe PBIS positively compliments our elementary curriculum and helps to strengthen important life skills.
