Principal's Message

  • Thank you for visiting our school’s website. My name is Susan Barrie and I am delighted to be the principal at Woodside Elementary School. Woodside is a wonderful school and a truly exciting place to learn. The faculty and staff, along with parents, work together to encourage students to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers. The students at Woodside engage in interactive learning experiences through rigorous and relevant instruction.

    This year we will continue with our focus of implementing the Maryland Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in order for all students to be college and career ready. We will also continue to elevate all students and eliminate all gaps by concentrating our efforts on early literacy skills.

    Our theme this year is “Keep Moving Forward.” At Woodside Elementary we embrace and celebrate the special and unique qualities of all students. To this end, we offer several after school clubs in order for our students to pursue their varying interests.

    I look forward to a wonderful school year. Feel free to stop by, call, or email me at sbarrie@aacps if you have any questions, concerns or just want to chat. My door is always open!

    Susan Barrie
