Holiday Lunch for Woodburn Teachers & Staff

Wednesday, Dec. 19
Woodburn Teachers’ Lounge
Luncheon Theme: Holidays Around the World

December is here! As families celebrate the holidays, we want to honor the teachers and staff of our school family by serving them a holiday lunch. The theme is “Holidays Around the World.”  If you have a food dish that is meaningful by your family during the holidays, please share it!  Or, bring any dish that will bless the teachers’ bellies – even if it’s not part of a family tradition! 

Sign up to contribute a dish or volunteer to help!

Details

  • Drop off your food item (labeled, if possible) by 10am on December 19th. You may leave it in the front office or take it directly to the teacher’s lounge.
  • Please bring your food in a disposable dish OR arrange to pick-up your dish from the teachers’ lounge after 2pm on the 19th.
  • If you have a story or reason your family likes a particular dish, please email that to Katharine Kraft, so it can be used in the luncheon display.

Contact Katharine Kraft with any questions.
