  • Woodhill students make their mark on “Dot Day”


    Students at Woodhill Elementary made their mark on “Dot Day” by donating $440 in change to the Gastonia Police Foundation. The school sponsored the money collection in an effort to teach the children about supporting their community. It’s an idea inspired by the children’s book “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds. The students also got an opportunity to spend time with officers and learn about the police department’s bomb squad and K-9 units.
