Hello and welcome to our new website!
 
We are happy you stopped by to visit our webpage today.  My name is Robyn Miller, and I am the principal for the new school - Spring Lake Elementary School.  This is our first time having a webpage on the district website, so we are excited to get it launched!
 
Spring Lake Elementary is the newest school to be built in Woodland Joint Unified School District.  We open for our students this August 2018 and will have Transitional-Kindergarten through Third grades our first year. The campus is located on the corners of Banks and Miekle Avenues in Woodland's Spring Lake neighborhood.  Currently we are undergoing the final part of the construction process with completion in the next few months.  
 
We will be posting updates along the way to our opening, and even more regularly after we are open in the fall. 
 
If you have any questions, please e-mail me at:  robyn.miller@wjusd.org 
 
Sincerely,
 
Robyn Miller
Principal, Spring Lake Elementary School

Academic Focus: STEAM

Academic Focus:  STEAM iconAcademic Focus: STEAMtitle

Our academic focus will be STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) and project-based learning in the new school.  The idea of adding Art to STEM has been gaining momentum for the past several years to meet the needs of the 21st century, with the inclusion of important processes such as creativity and innovation.  STEAM takes STEM to the next level of creation and application.  Students make an intentional connection with content that include design thinking, art practices, and visual representations.
