Jim Dell - Principal, Woodworth Elementary School, Leslie Public Schools

Welcome to Woodworth Elementary School.  My name is Jim Dell and I am starting my 22nd year as a School Administrator, 30th year in Education, and my 8th year at Leslie.  I hope you find our website useful and please do not hesitate to offer suggestions on how we can make it more useful.

We are a Pre-Kindergarten through Fourth Grade school with nearly 500 students.  Woodworth is staffed with Highly Qualified Teachers and Para-professionals who strive to make the elementary school experience enjoyable and memorable for our students.  The preschool programs serve three and four year old students and the school also offers child care. 

At Woodworth Elementary, the students have many opportunities for field trips and assemblies, offering parents many opportunities to be involved with the school.  Volunteer opportunities are abundant and we encourage parents to assist in classrooms and participate in the PTO. 

Woodworth has a comprehensive, aligned curriculum that is developed for the Common Core State Standards, provides classroom and pull out interventions for all students through Title 1, as well as opportunities for advanced students to accelerate learning. 

Students at Woodworth receive additional opportunities in Music, Technology, Physical Education, Art, and Library.

Woodworth is a safe and welcoming environment.  We are always striving to improve our practices and policies in the classroom and throughout the building.  We appreciate your patience and cooperation with our new safety policies.  Please come visit, check in at the office, and enjoy your time at Woodworth Elementary School.
