Woodland PTO strives to successfully support educational excellence & community engagement
We want to empower the community to support the tradition of educational excellence and the development of all students at Woodland Elementary by:
- Creating channels for clear communication between parents, administration, teachers, and the broader community to promote transparency.
- Energizing engagement to build a stronger school and strengthen the sense of community among students, parents, and the school.
- Supporting a sustainable, supplemental funding source that closes the gap between government funding and the actual cost to educate Woodland students.
