The Pyramid of Success
California Distinguished School
I am very pleased and excited to share with the Woodland community that Woodland Elementary has been recommended to be recognized as a California Distinguished School (CDS)! It has been a long, yet rewarding process, which has ended with a feeling of total validation for all the hard work on the part of the Woodland staff for past many years.
The application process began last November when the school was selected among many schools to apply for the California Distinguished School award. The staff immediately began gathering information and data on our two agreed upon “Signature Practices” that we would be highlighting in the application. A team of teachers and I began writing the application and submitted our final copy in December. We were excited to be notified in March that Woodland would be visited by a CDS Validation Team. That visit took place last Wednesday and at the end of the day the CDS team met with our staff to complement us on the educational program we offer our students, particularly highlighting our Signature Practices, as well as the school climate as a whole. The CDS team lead left the following message for me on behalf of the staff:
“It was our honor and privilege to visit Woodland today. We commend you and your staff for the obvious dedication to implementing and continuously improving your RTI and Character Pyramid (Response to Intervention and Character Education programs). We very much enjoyed meeting your staff, children and community and will be recommending Woodland to be recognized as a California Distinguished School. Congratulations!”
I would like to give a huge shout out to our wonderful parent community because it would have been impossible to achieve this distinguished award without your help and the delightful children you send us each and every day. Thank you so much!
Perhaps we have all taken Coach John Wooden’s advice: “Make each day your masterpiece.” Every day we come to school, whether we are parents, teachers, staff, or students, with the attitude of making each and every day the best it can be. Because of this, together, we have achieved success!

Woodland's character education program is based on Coach John Wooden's book, Inch and Miles - The Journey to Success. Throughout the journey, Inch and Miles find out the real meaning of success by meeting fourteen characters in the story who represent the values that will guarantee success. By the end of the journey, Inch and Miles understand that:
Success isn't having trophies or toys.
It isn't a medal or friends of your choice.
What is Success? That's easy to see.
It's trying to be the best that you can be!
Don't worry what others may have or might say.
When trying your best,
Success comes your way.
Thank you Coach John Wooden for allowing us to share your Pyramid of Success with our students.
