PLEASE READ THROUGH! IMPORTANT 8th GRADE GRADUATION DEADLINES THIS WEEK!
Please Help! The Wood Oaks PTA Needs YOU!
Whether you stay at home, work from home, work part or full time, there are ways you can help. It makes a HUGE difference when we have great involvement from our community.
The 2022-23 Co-President board position is open and needs to be filled ASAP.
It’s a great opportunity to be involved in your student’s final D27 years. There are also many committees that need chairs to head them up, and committee positions to fill.
Some of the great events and activities that PTA runs may not happen without your help!
PTA is responsible for:
Social events such as Back to School party, Fall Skate, and the Social Dance
And much more!
Recent gifts Wood Oaks PTA fundraising has given to the school include:
Ukuleles and Guitars for the music room
Summer Reading Books
Teacher and Staff Appreciation Events
Even if you want to find something for 30 min at home every few weeks, or at the school every few months...we want you!!
The Hot Lunch program is the largest fundraiser for each PTA. Thank you for your support!
Back by popular demand! Order Do-Rite donuts for a sweet weekend treat. Watch your email for the order link on Monday, with pick up on May 21st, 9-10 am. There will be regular, gluten-free, vegan and a special Wood Oaks graduation celebration donut.
