Volunteer Opportunities






If you are looking for way to get involved with the PTA we have several upcoming volunteer opportunities. 


Please email woodbury.pta@gmail.com 
if you are interested in any of the following volunteer positions. 

Spelling Bee Setup - Tuesday, December 6 - We need help setting up the chairs for the Spelling Bee. Setup time will be 3:15 pm

Nominating Committee - This is a very important committee that will help form the next PTA Board. The requirements are that you are a current PTA member and that you did not serve on the committee last year. There will be approximately three meetings, beginning with a short training meeting in December.

Jogathon Committee - The Jogathon Committee is eager to get started and is looking for volunteers who are interested in helping make the 2017 Jogathon a smashing success.

Bylaw Committee - This is a short-term commitment requiring two meetings in which to review and approve the PTA bylaws.

Our PTA is a success because of the support of our wonderful volunteers and we would love it if you would consider joining one (or more!) of these fun opportunities. This is a great way to meet new people and get involved with the school without a major time commitment.

Star Wars Dress Up Day - Wednesday September 7



Thanks to the support of our community, we have over 650 PTA memberships so far and our kids have earned a Star Wars Dress-Up Day! 


Star Wars Dress-Up Day will be held on Wednesday, September 7th. Kids and adults can choose to dress up in anything Star Wars! Costumes, PJs, t-shirts or just do some fun Leia buns in your hair! If you don't have anything Star Wars, no problem! All students will receive a Jedi Mighty the Mustang tattoo on Tuesday from their teacher! So enjoy and have fun. We will see everyone at the Round-up in your Star Wars gear! 

A few costume guidelines...
  • Children come to school dressed in their costume. We will not allow costume changes to take place at school. 
  • Children should wear a costume that can be comfortably worn throughout the entire day. 
  • Be sure to have your children wear proper clothes and underclothes underneath their costume just in case they find their costume to be too hot or uncomfortable and wish to take it off before the day is over. 
  • Children may not wear masks.
  • Children may not wear make-up to school.
  • Children should not bring any object that they will need to hold in their hands. Of special emphasis is our State Education Code that states children may not bring any toy weapons to school of any sort at any time. 
  • Children should be discouraged from wearing any costume material that could be easily damaged.

Perhaps the most delicious part of our upcoming carnival is the traditional Cake Walk! Not only do you have the chance to go home with a yummy dessert, but the proceeds from this event help to defray the costs of the 6th grade outdoor education program for next year. 

Cake Walk items can be cakes, pies, cupcakes, plates of cookies or brownies. Please no nuts or peanut butter or anything that needs to be frozen!

All donations should be dropped off to the school office on Friday, May 20th, no later than 3:00pm.






Woodbury Carnival is Coming!

**PLEASE SEE THIS UPDATE FOR A NEW PRICE ON UNLIMITED WRISTBANDS**

The annual Woodbury Carnival is coming and a great time will be had by all!

The carnival will be held on Friday, May 20 from 5:00-7:00pm. An all-access wristband can be purchased for $10 for presale and $10 at the door. (This is a price drop from the price printed on the flier.)

As always, these events would not be possible without our fantastic volunteers. If you are able to help setup, clean up, or anything in between please contact your child's teacher for more information.


Ralph's Community Contribution Program

We have a great way for you to continue to support our school simply by doing your normal grocery shopping. With the Ralph's Community Contribution Program, simply take this flyer with you the next time you head to Ralph's. Hand the flyer to the checker when you check out and they will link your Rewards card with Woodbury elementary and Woodbury will receive a portion of the proceeds from  your shopping trip! You only need to do this once per school year.
