Giving Tree for Woodburn Teachers

The PTA is excited to announce a new Holiday celebration—a Giving Tree for our amazing teachers!    We hope this project will make it easier to meet all of our teachers’ needs and show them how much we appreciate their hard work and the time they devote to our kids!

The PTA worked with Woodburn’s teachers to compile a wish list of items—$20 or less—that they would like for their classrooms or programs. 

Your family will be able to claim a wish list item, buy it, and give the gift to your teacher during your child’s classroom party the week before Winter Break (Dec. 16-20).  If you are buying a gift for a specialist teacher (for example PE, Art, ESOL, Special Education, Music), you or your child can present your gift to that teacher sometime during the week before Winter Break (Dec. 16-20).

There are two (2) ways you can claim wish list items for teachers:

If you have questions, please email Nate at nathan.maines@gmail.com.

We have so many wonderful teachers at Woodburn, we hope this will help us celebrate and thank all of them!
