The History of the Wooddale School District #3368
An application was made to establish a new district, and in 1916 the Hohn School District #3368, was formed. Later, in 1919, the Community applied to have the name changed and the School District became known as Wooddale. It has been suggested the name of Wooddale was chosen because of the location being heavily wooded, and a 'dale-like' lay of the surrounding area.
After postponing the building of the school for several years, one was finally constructed in 1920 by E.J. Da-vidson of Calgary. The total cost was $2,150 and the building was erected on a two acre plot, located on the NE corner of Section 23-42-2-WSth meridian, which had been purchased from Mary Jane Reed for the sum of $50.
