Welcome Home Wildcats!

All of that hustle and chaos of the last week or two likely culminated in a rather anticlimactic "see ya later" by your student as he or she hopped out of the car this morning.  For those of you who have a sentimental student who let you snap a cute pic in front of the school at drop-off today, I envy you!  

I always love to hear every parent's perspective on the first day of school.  Some are kicking back in a now quiet house and loving every second of peace that a new school year brings.  Others are crying into their coffee this morning as they lament that time is passing far too quickly.  No matter what your First Day of School feelings are, we're only giving you today to sit to enjoy them, because things are about to get BUSY.

For parents who like a good list, here you go!  Below is a list of some important dates for you to put on your calendar.  NOTE: These are not the only dates you should put on your calendar, just some important ones that are coming up quickly. To get the full picture of all upcoming events at Woodrow, be sure to visit the PTA Calendar on our website.

  • August 26 - HoCo Parent Social - See the flyer below!
  • August 31 - Mini School - Stay tuned for details!  This year's event will be back at the school!
  • September 7 - PTA Meeting @ 7:00 pm in the Library
  • September 17 - Homecoming Kick-Off and Festival
  • September 23 - Homecoming Game & Tailgate
  • September 24 - Homecoming Dance @ Fashion Industry Gallery (FIG)

We'll be launching our "All Things Homecoming" page this week as well, so get ready!  As you can tell, there is no time to waste as the calendar for the next month or so is jammed with events.  We are so excited to see you and the students at all of them!

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out and let us know how the PTA can help serve you, the school or our community.  We are excited and ready to carry out our mission of making Woodrow your home this year.
