- Orchestra: Orchestra is available to all fourth and fifth grade students! Instruments taught are: violin, viola and cello. Because we have only a very small inventory at school, students must rent or purchase their own instrument to practice at home. Students bring their instruments to school on the days they have orchestra class. Orchestra class meets twice per week for 45 minutes. Students learn to play a variety of music in the method book: Essential Elements, as well as sheet music distributed by the teacher.
- S.P.A.C.E.: The Special Program for Academic and Creative Excellence (SPACE) began in 1979. Students were first identified in grades four and five and in 1981 the program expanded to include the elementary grades of second and third. Today SPACE classes are held in all of our elementary and middle schools. SPACE teachers identify students for this gifted program at the end of grade one or the beginning of grade two. Teachers work with identified students, at the elementary level, once a week for two to two and a half hours. Currently we have ten elementary SPACE teachers who serve students in all of the city elementary schools. In our middle schools identifies students may take the SPACE class during their elective period.
Students in the SPACE program are identified using the following assessment tools:
- Teacher recommendation(s)
- Parent inventory
- An ability measure
- An achievement measure
- A creativity measure
- Saturday Academy & Extended Day: Extended Day and Saturday Academy are remediation programs designed to provide students in grades 3-5 with additional SOL support in reading and math. Students are selected by a careful analysis of previous SOL data and/or district benchmark assessments. Extended Day will begin in November and run through June. Tutoring will take place after school from 4-5:15 on Mondays and Tuesdays and Saturday Academy will be held on select Saturdays from 9-12:30 beginning in December.
- Safety Patrol: The safety patrollers develop responsibility by patrolling given areas of the school and reporting back to the coordinator. Parents must sign permission for their children to participate. In accepting the responsibility of patrol duty, students must sign a pledge to uphold the Safety Patrol Guidelines.
- Spanish: Woodville is very fortunate to offer Elementary Spanish classes. Foreign Language in Elementary Schools (FLES) is a Spanish language program that allows elementary students to develop basic communication skills in the language while learning, reinforcing, and enriching content in other school subjects.
- Student Council Association (SCA): The Virginia Student Council Association (VSCA) is a leadership learning organization for student leaders from private and public schools throughout the Commonwealth. VSCA provides learning experiences in leadership and opportunities to practice the citizenship skills necessary for effective participation in our democratic society. VSCA encourages the formation, development, and expansion of student councils in all schools (K-12) in Virginia. Each fall during a school-wide election, students elect a President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer for the student body. Fourth and Fifth grade students are eligible to run for office. Each classroom also has a class representative and an alternate to bring information back to their classrooms.
