Woodrow Parents,

Woodrow PTA is off to a great start with our Family Sponsorships campaign! We appreciate all the Woodrow families that have supported us with your donations. Your swag packages will be delivered to your doorstep soon! This is the PTA's only fundraiser of the year and we depend on your support to be able to take care of our students, faculty and campus throughout the year. Your donations have allowed us to be able to provide a homecoming dance to our families this year.

Please take a moment to become a family sponsor. Information on donation levels is below or on our website.

Another big aspect to our PTA is membership. We had record membership last year and we are on our way to surpass that this year. Having a large membership base gives us a voice with the Texas PTA and the district. Please take a moment to become a member today. Membership is open to all parents, students, alums, staff and admin. It’s inexpensive and easy to register at our website www.woodrowwildcats.org.

Thank you for your continued support of Woodrow and our students!

Chris Prestridge
Woodrow PTA President
