WOODROW PTA HAD A WONDERFUL END-OF-YEAR CELEBRATION LAST WEEK. We had a great turnout and were able to honor our PTA Lifetime Achievement Award recipients. We celebrated the amazing work by all the people on this list. The Lifetime Award is based on years of service to our students, staff and campus. My hat is off to all these volunteers who have given us so much over the years.

Woodrow Class of 1966
Woodrow PTA hosted the 2021 Senior Prom last Saturday night at the House of Blues. It was really nice to be able to celebrate our seniors, give them an event and see see them all enjoying their time together. A HUGE shout out to our prom committee for persevering in this tough year and a big thank you to the Woodrow Class of '66 for volunteering at the prom.
As we count down this year we also look forward to next year and a return to normalcy. Look for lists of dates and events for 2021-22 to start being released soon.
