This will be our last general meeting for the 2019 year, so come and get the latest info.

It's a group of individuals who will work together to build a list of qualified and willing nominees for the 2020/2021 PTA Executive Board. Are you interested in a PTA position or know anyone who may be interested? Our ultimate goal is to find individuals who will be committed to becoming part of our Exec Board to carry on the responsibilities of the PTA positions and duties. Our main focus is to build and maintain a strong community of families to support our children at Woodbury Elementary. It's all about the kids!

6th Grade Guy Stuff


You’re invited!

All 6th grade boys and their dads or special family member are invited to attend a fun and informative evening as they learn about male puberty and the changes that go with it. This event takes place Thursday, October 17th, 2019 from 6-8 p.m. in the MPR at Woodbury Elementary.

Pizza and fun for 6th grade boys
Dinner and refreshments will be served. A small gift will also be handed out to all attendees. This is an event that all Woodbury families look forward to at this special time in your student’s life. This is not a sex talk. This is a conversation about the physical changes in your 6th grader’s body. You don’t want to miss this highly anticipated event in your child’s life.

Dad not available?
Bring granddad, uncle, or another special family member or friend to join the fun. Please note this is NOT a drop off event. Dad or another male guardian must be present with your student.

Health Education
The Guy Stuff program is an Irvine Unified District approved and recommended supplemental program to the 6th grade health curriculum.  IUSD supports the home as the primary provider of education relating to the physical and emotional aspects of becoming a man. This program is designed to assist in this task by opening up and encouraging the dialog and interaction between parents and students.

Special Guest Speaker
Our special guest speaker, Craig Cooper, will have a presentation for our boys about the changes they will experience as they grow.  Craig leads this session at a number of IUSD schools and was also the guest speaker last year at Woodbury Elementary.

Please RSVP
Please RSVP asap  by filling out the form below.  This will help our PTA parent volunteers get an accurate head count for food and seating.  This is a fully PTA sponsored event, thanks to your donation dollars.
