On March 25, 2015 students drove 200 live stakes of various willow and dogwood species into the banks helping reduce soil erosion and increase absorption of excess water. Some species of bare root shrubs were also planted near the stream banks. Work will continue throughout the school year. So if you are using the area, please take care not to disrupt the fresh transplants (they basically look like large sticks in the ground). In May, we will begin the process of eliminating the turf grass and spreading native grass/wildflower seed. Then in May/June more mature trees will be planted in the area. So if it seems unkempt, it is because we do not want it to be mowed. It may not look like much now, but it is going to be beautiful when it is complete. Thank you for your support.
An accidental discovery revealed a buried treasure in the front lawn of the Woodstown High School -- a 1976 bicentennial time capsule containing history from over the years.
The unexpected capsule was dug up when the district replaced the high school's front sign. When the sign was replaced, workers accidentally struck the sealed keg, which will now be put on display in early April.
"We didn't know what it was -- we came upon it by mistake. We thought it'd be unique to repack it and bury it again for 2076," Doug Hathaway, with the Woodstown-Pilesgrove school district and historical society, said Monday afternoon.
Surrounded by various articles, trinkets, and memorabilia from the Woodstown High School Class of '76, Hathaway and principal, Dr. Scott Hoopes, carefully separated the priceless items.
A great ceremony was held -- Yankee Doodle Day -- and the capsule was buried only to be found years later.
Please extend congratulations to Chase Nelson, Chelsey Fitton
and Georgia Lucas who have received NJ FFA Proficiency Awards!
These are the first students to be awarded from Woodstown in over 10 years and it is a great achievement! The award honor FFA members who, through their Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Project, have developed specialized skills that will be used during their future careers. Each student began their SAE project 3 years ago and spent over 15 hours completing the proficiency application. The students will have the opportunity to compete for national recognition in the fall during the National FFA Convention.
Please congratulate the Woodstown FFA Livestock Judging Team for winning 1st place
at the state competition this past Saturday!
Team members are:
Georgia Lucas (1st place overall)
Chelsey Fitton (2nd place overall)

The WHS School Store services primarily Woodstown High School, but we also provide services for the Woodstown community members, alumni, and students elementary and middle schools. Though the store has been up and running for many years, Mrs. Lynch and the students design all of the items in conjunction with a local graphic designer, so everything is original!

This will allow us to vastly expand inventory to service our students, staff, and community better...We can customize designs for your Woodstown based team or business by request.
