Woodland Middle School’s literary magazine was recently distinguished by the 2018 National Council of Teachers of English, Recognizing Excellence in Art and Literary Magazine Program. The publication, “The Meadow,” achieved a rank of “excellent.”

Woodland was one of just four middle schools in a pool of mostly high schools that were recognized by the program. Additionally, it was among 21 schools in the state to earn a rank of “excellent,” and one of only 358 entries that were honored throughout the country.

“The Meadow” is led by teacher advisors Ellen Ruoff, Caterina Largana and Chris Krauss and includes contributions from a variety of student authors.

“I want to thank the NCTE for bestowing this award on our school and magazine,” said Ms. Ruoff. “Congratulations goes to the students for their hard work and dedication!”
