  • Stay in the loop about what's going on at school — both inside the classroom and out.
  • Gain a greater understanding of educational issues impacting us here at WWA.

Field Day - 1st Full Day Field Day in WWA History!
WWA PTO is excited to help make full-day field day a reality this year! Tell your 1st-5th grade kiddos to get ready for Woodrow's first all day field day on on Tuesday, May 19! It's gonna be a SUPER fun day!

We already have 25 committed volunteers to help that day, but we're hoping for just a few more. If you're interested in helping (plan to be there from 8am - 3pm), please email Amy at amymadron@gmail.com.

Your student will receive a special field day backpack, water and snacks. There will be approximately 20 game stations (many new ones this year), ribbons, and more! There will be some "chill-out" stations, some stations in the gym so kids can get out of the sun for a bit, and we'll have lots of shady areas up at the park as well.

Look for more information coming out soon from the school about sunscreen, what to bring that day, etc.

NO COST Fundraiser!
PTO is partnering with ARC to bring a fabulous fundraiser to WWA. Our goal is to raise $7,000 to cover our remaining expenses for this school year. You have already helped us raise over $1,000 - thank you! All donations are tax deductible and anyone can donate.

While you may have participated in a similar fundraiser before, ARC has changed the way they run these events, so please note the following:

-No large furniture or appliances will be collected - all items must
be small enough that it can be lifted by one adult by themselves.
-No TVs or Computer Monitors
-No Mattresses or Box Springs
-No Building or Home Improvement Items

Spread the word! Neighbors, family, friends, anyone can donate to this wonderful cause and we will provide receipts for your taxable donation.
