Maddie's Mitten March will be in Sandwich NOVEMBER 12th. This is a bus that shows up, and is filled with coats, hats, gloves and boots. Any family may come, no proof of residency or income is required. They let 1 family on the bus at a time to grab what they need, and then move on to the next. The bus is fully stocked with all sizes and all ages. Please see the flyer below. We are so thankful to have such a supportive community!

Thank you to all of our local and Woodbury Veteran's who we were able to honor today. Thank you for your service!

Honoring our Veterans

We were so thankful to have the opportunity to honor our Woodbury family and local veterans today as well as the many other outstanding men and women in our great country who have served in the U.S. armed forces. We thank you, not just today, but every day.
We invite you to please take a quiet moment to help us honor our beloved veterans and generations of patriots.

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!

Woodbury Way: Practicing Patience

"Our children are growing up in a world where instant gratification is the norm. Our world is quickly changing to ask less and less of our patience.

"We know, though, that there are many benefits to being patient. Patience improves our physical, emotional, and social health. When we are patient, we experience less stress and a lower likelihood for various health-related issues like high blood pressure or stomach issues. We experience more optimism and feelings of joy (rather than feelings of anger or anxiety) and demonstrate better decision-making. And in regards to our social lives, patience fosters empathy and respect for others and strengthens our relationships with others. As you can see from the many benefits, patience is an important skill. But like any other skill, it requires lots of practice." Read more here.

Waiting is not easy! We look forward to celebrating our students who are working hard on developing the skill of being patient. Check out some of the book titles below that have fun stories and lessons about being patient.
