Welcome to Woodlawn
Woodlawn Elementary School, located on 5.1 acres of land in North Lawrence, has a long history and can trace its roots back to the earliest settlements in the area. Originally named Fifth Ward School, in 1890, its teachers petitioned to change the name to Woodlawn because the building was surrounded by a wooded lawn of elm, birch, and walnut trees. The original building burned to the ground in 1923, and a new school, also named Woodlawn, was built in 1924. Woodlawn serves students in grades K-5, including offering a full-day kindergarten program.
Did You Know? The United States Department of Education has recognized Woodlawn as a National Blue Ribbon School! In addition, the Confidence in Kansas Public Education Task Force awarded Woodlawn its Challenge Award for inspiring high student achievement among populations with high ethnic and economic diversity.
"Promoting a healthy self–image, positive attitude, and essential skills to live, learn and work in international society."

This is a healthy after-school program where students accumulate laps that they run or walk until they achieve distance running milestones! The goal of the marathon club is to promote a lifelong love of fitness and to show that small steps can help us reach big goals. The Riverhawk Runners meet for forty minutes after school on Thursdays (3:05-3:45). We begin by checking in at the basketball court by the south door. We're very excited to be able to offer this program again and are looking forward to a fun, safe year. Please note this year, the Marathon Club is only meeting once a week on Thursdays.
The Fall Marathon Club will run from September 22th to November 17th and the Spring from March 30th until May 18th.
