April Traditional Table

You probably already know this, but our school offers a wonderful grocery program called The Traditional Table. All the products are raised, grown or produced with whole foods and no artificial ingredients or GMOs. We work directly with farmers, producers, and wholesalers so our prices are LESS THAN RETAIL! If you haven’t tried this program yet, you still have TWO more chances to help our school earn extra money!

The April order is due Tuesday, March 28. Please order at www.awhatmom.com/woodside and then send your check into school by March 28. Pick up orders at school on Thursday, April 6 from 4-5 pm in the Gym.

Please note…there will be NO LATE PICKUPS available this month.

If you don’t order in April, there will be one more chance. The final Traditional Table order will have pick up the first week of May. Sadly, due to low participation, this program will not return for the 2017-2018 school year. I am proud to say this homegrown fundraiser has earned over $6500 for Woodside and $11,000 for 3 district schools since it started 4.5 years ago! Thank you to everyone who has supported the program through ordering and volunteering at pick ups!

Another ColorCycle Donation

crayolacc

Earlier this year, we announced that we are now participating in the Crayola ColorCycle program. During the 2016/2017 school year, we will be collecting dried markers of any type or brand for the Crayola ColorCycle program. They take our used markers and have them transformed into clean-burning fuel, rather than sending them to the landfill.

And, we just donated another HUGE amount of markers! We have collected over 13 POUNDS of MARKERS – about 650 markers!!!  If you think about how little one marker weighs, 13 pounds is really a lot! Amazing job everyone!
