Thank you for a fantastic Dash of the Runaway Wizards on October 20, 2023! Together, we’ve raised over $37K for the Woodlin PTA, with donations remaining open until November 4th.
This tremendous show of community support allows us to host assemblies and artist residencies, provide teacher and grade-level funds for field trips and enrichment, and hold fun community-building events like the upcoming Outdoor Family Dance on Saturday, November 4th. We’re working on plans to revive International Day, and for many events in the spring like our Earth Day celebration, STEM Day, the Geography Bee, and the big community Spring Fair. All of your contributions large and small make these things possible.
