Summer Bridge Books – 2017

Summer is just around the corner! Help your child avoid summer learning loss and prepare for the school year ahead with the new and improved, award-winning Summer Bridge Activities® workbooks.

Woodside Home & School is partnering with The Learning Shop to promote summer learning through Summer Bridge Activities. Research indicates that over the summer most children could lose 60-70% of what they learned during the school year. Summer Bridge Activities make it easy for parent and child to practice and review what they have learned and also preview the upcoming school year. Summer Bridge Activities was created by classroom teachers and is based on national and state standards. Each book includes 15-minute daily activities in reading, writing, math, and language arts with bonus activities in geography and science. The books are available for pre-kindergarten through seventh grade.

Please print and submit this order form by May 24th. Books will be delivered to your child’s classroom in late May/early June and a portion of the proceeds will also benefit Woodside Home & School! The cost of each workbook is $15.76 plus tax.

 

Final Traditional Table: April 2017

As you probably already know, due to low participation, The Traditional Table fundraising program will not return for the 2017-2018 school year. However, we have one more order for the Traditional Table before the program ends! This is a great chance to stock your freezer full of summer grilling meats like burgers, brats, hot dogs & chicken breasts!

The last order is due Tuesday, April 25, which is right after we return from spring break. Make it easy on yourself and place your order and send in your check now, so you don’t forget when we get back! Please order at http://www.awhatmom.com/woodside and then send your check into school by April 25. Pick up orders at school on Thursday, May 4 from 4-5 pm in the Gym.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in the past! Please help us make this last order a great one! If you have any questions please contact Colleen Boehm at 262-820-2250 or colleen@awhatmom.com.

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!
