22 Apr
During Elementary School District 159's March Board of Education meeting, Woodgate students, parents, Faculty Members, Administration Team and community members celebrated the revealing and dedication of Woodgate's new Science Lab.  To preserve "sea life" and explore the science of Oceanography, the lab presents as a large aquarium in which students can envision themselves below the ocean's surface.
The lab is colorfully and meticulously decorated in Woodgate's school colors with vivid sea life that appears to be actually "swimming" around the classroom!  "The students and Staff absolutely love it!" exclaims, Dr. Antonia Hill, Woodgate's Principal.  "The lab looks as if the class is positioned within an aquarium in which actual sea creatures are swimming around them!  What a fantastic space to learn and engage in."  The new lab is equipped with the latest technology and equipment.  Students and Staff are already enjoying the new lab and look forward to a fun and engaging time, under the sea!
