Tim Hannig PRO-Kids Show

To celebrate the end of the year and all of the success that our classes have had in meeting their PAWS goals, we are excited to be welcoming Tim Hannig and his PRO-Kids show to Woodside on Wednesday, May 30th!  Thanks to the generosity of Home and School, Tim will be doing 2 daytime shows (Grades K, 1,3 at 1:15 and Grades 2,4,5 at 2:15) as well as an evening show for families at 6:30 pm. Please note that the evening show will be different from the one that students will have seen during the day.

The Pro-Kids Show is a fast-paced, entertaining, one-man show with custom music, amazing illusions, hilarious comedy, ventriloquism, drama, and audience involvement. It is more than just entertainment. It has a message for students and families, revealed with wit and warmth. Throughout the unique program, the audience will be reminded of the importance of character traits like honesty, respect, cooperation and responsibility.

Tim has performed for Six Flags, The White House, and in England. He also the first person in Chicago History to win BOTH 1st Place and The People’s Choice Awards at The Chicago Magic Competition TWICE. Please join us for this special event!

Staff Appreciation Week 2018

Woodside Staff Appreciation Week

May 7th-11th

Our theme this year is

We LOVE our Woodside Staff!


We are very fortunate to be able to send our children to Woodside each day, knowing that the Woodside Staff is willing to go above and beyond to educate and care for our precious children.

Each day of staff appreciation week, we will be making and serving lunch to all 72 Woodside Staff members to show them how much we appreciate all their hard work and dedication to our children. Home & School will also be creating some fun and festive raffle baskets that each staff member will have an opportunity to win!

We need many volunteers and donations to make this week a success. Please consider volunteering for one or two shifts this week – it is a GREAT way to meet and interact with the wonderful people that work with our children every day. If you aren’t able to make it into the school, but still want to show our staff some love, please consider sending in an item or two from our donation request list.

Ways you can help:

  • Make an item on our menu for Staff Appreciation Lunch and deliver to Woodside.
  • Set up, refresh and/or clean up the daily lunches.
