I write to bring you an update on our progress and planning for re-opening the campus in the fall. As you know, the public health situation in our region and throughout the southeastern US has deteriorated in the last few weeks. No doubt, it will continue to change in the seven weeks between now and the August 20th start of the school year.
We stand in community and solidarity with all who fight black inequality. We are collectively committed to making progress in this vital work.
Read our statement on diversity and inclusion.
That is why I chose to make racism the central focus of the most important Woodlawn speech of the year, Graduation, to show that fighting racism pertains directly to the school's mission and the work we share, educating leaders who will activate the words of our mission.
Dear Woodlawn Community,
Winter 2020 was nothing less than spectacular for our Woodlawn Community. Our booster club thought it would be hard to beat our fall 2019, but in Woodlawn spirit and culture we had an amazing Winter!
I want to thank our school administrators, teachers, and volunteers…the fall and winter of 2019-2020 has surpassed the booster club’s vision we set out to accomplish back in the summer of 2019, and we could not do this without your support and help! We expect next year, when we are all back on campus, to be even greater and filled with many more amazing accomplishments!
DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Board of Trustees of Woodlawn School is pleased to announce the selection of Paul Zanowski as our next Head of School, beginning July 1, 2019. Mr. Zanowski comes to Woodlawn from Kenston Forest School in Blackstone, Virginia, where he currently serves as Head of School.
The selection is the result of an extensive national search conducted by the members of the Board-selected Search Committee and assisted by Educational Directions, a search consulting firm based in Providence, Rhode Island. The committee selected three candidates as finalists who visited Woodlawn in January and met with students, faculty members, and parents. Mr. Zanowski received the enthusiastic support of the Board of Trustees, who made the final selection.
