The Wonderful World of Woodbury

Weekly Update for Families: November 28th

Updates & Friendly Reminders

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! We are looking forward to a fun December ahead! We have fun dress up days and activities planned including our annual holiday sing along, breadmaking and a door decorating contest. Each classroom teacher has chosen a country to display how they celebrate the holidays. We will get to take a little walk around the world!

Thank you to all who came to support your student and their teacher at parent-teacher conferences. Your partnership makes a difference in the the education of your child. We also appreciate all of the little notes of encouragement left for your child!

A BIG thank you to our Woodbury PPA for their delicious dinner provided during conferences. It was wonderful to enjoy dinner together as a staff.

Our next round of attendance reminders will be going out in the next month. Please know that we are aware that there has been a great deal of illness so our numbers are certainly up, but it is still our policy to update you so that you are aware. Doctors notes are helpful to excuse absences, so if you have those, please send them in or drop them off. Thank you to all who have done so so far! Please note that no call in or unreturned calls are mark as unexcused.

We have begun to collect donations for the Franklin Mall Project. Please see the information below!

The City of Sandwich is asking that our parents/guardians be mindful when parking in the residential area around the school, avoiding parking on parkways/grass of neighbors in order to avoid tearing up grass. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Our little school is in need of donations of new/gently used basic sweatpants/leggings and new underwear for both girls and boys for our extra clothes closet in sizes 6-14. If you know anyone looking to donate please send them our way! Thank you!

Franklin Mall Christmas Project

Dear Woodbury Families,

Woodbury is once again supporting the Franklin Mall Christmas Project. The Franklin Mall Project was founded by the late Frankie and Peg Mall over 65 years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Mall would buy and deliver groceries for struggling families over the Christmas holiday. As time passed the Sandwich Lions Club took over this wonderful project. Each year the project provides for about 250 households in Sandwich, many with school-aged children, with a box of groceries and a generous gift card.

Woodbury is collecting non-perishable items for families in need over the holidays. Donations of boxed or canned foods as well as shampoos and other toiletries can be donated now until December 8th. Woodbury will also be hosting our Holiday Book Fair from December 5th to December 9th. To help fill our Franklin Mall donation boxes, we will have a raffle for a shopping spree at our book fair. For every 3 items donated and brought down to the Learning Center, the student’s name will be put in a drawing for a $10 shopping spree at our Holiday Book Fair. There will be 5 lucky winners!!!

If you are looking for suggestions of donations, The Lions Club has found that they usually have a shortage of certain basic items such as: boxed macaroni & cheese; cereals & other breakfast items; peanut butter & jelly; spaghetti noodles & sauce; boxed potatoes/stuffing/hamburger helper; and canned fruit. Typically they receive an overabundance of canned soups and vegetables.

Thank you for helping us plant kindness by helping those in need in our community!

Support our Woodbury PPA with Amazon Smile!

Friendly reminder as you prepare for the holidays and all year long. Be sure to set up Amazon Smile and support our Woodbury PPA Community!

Additionally, PPA has created a GiftCrowd for staff for the holidays. A flyer will go home, but please check out the details below.
