Thanks for a Great Dash!
Friday, October 21, was a great day for the Dash of the Runaway Wizards! The kids ran, the teachers joined and encouraged them, and families came out to cheer and volunteer! Together, we’ve raised almost $34,000 for the Woodlin PTA.
These funds allow us to host assemblies and artist residencies like Beech Tree Puppets, provide teacher and grade-level funds, and hold fun community-building events like Movie Night and the upcoming Outdoor Family Dance on Saturday, November 12th. We’re working on plans for an amazing Earth Day celebration, STEM Day, and a wonderful Spring Fair in May. All of your contributions large and small make these things possible.
