Woodcock Students Visit City Officials

Posted by Comm. Dept. in Schools  |  Comments (4)

Members of the Student Council at Woodcock Elementary School attended  the Mobile City Council meeting on Wednesday, May 6, 2009.  Mayor Jones introduced and recognized the group during the meeting.  Students were able to get a first hand look at the operation of our city government.  Following the meeting, students toured the Government Plaza building and met the Mayor and each councilmember. Students were treated to an extra surprise when John Ed Thompson, FOX10 News chief meteorologist, arrived and sat with the students.  During the acceptance of his award from the city, John Ed made positive comments about the school and expressed his sadness about the school closing.  John Ed is an alumni of Woodcock Elementary School.

I came and toured the school before it closed. it was well kept, sturdy, and clean. I only saw one flaw, a loose sink in the girls' bathroom.  As a teacher, I believe that small schools serve the students better and provide a better working environment for all.  Eichold-Mertz is already over crowded and redistricting made enrollment fall.  I went to Woodcock also.  This building is beautiful and historic.

I would like to say that I am glad that these kids at a young age got to see how the city government run. That was a nice oppurtunity to let them tour the Government Plaza which is a nice place to tour and got to be part of the city council meeting.

Woodcock is an excellent school. I have enjoyed my time as a teacher there. It is sad that we have to close our doors. However, we will always be remembered for our excellent service to the kids and parents of the Maysville community.

Woodcock is a good school for the children that go or attend it and has a good learning system. I was a former student that attended that school first through fifth grade and I enjoyed the years that I was there.  The question that I would really like to ask is why close a good school?
