Join us before checking out Literacy Night for a brainstorming speed-round:

  • What initiatives, events, or programs would you like to see at Woodburn (something you’ve seen at the Library or other schools, etc.)?
  • What physical improvements would you like to see implemented by the PTA (i.e., playground structure, musical instruments, outdoor garden, etc.)

6:30-8pm Literacy Night
Learn more about what your child is learning in class to become a super reader and writer! Teachers will share some fun games to play at home together to reinforce those reading skills, and you can take home free books and activities. Everyone wins!
