Junior Class Meeting Information

Class Meeting: 

Rising Seniors (Class of 2024) had a meeting on Tuesday, February 21st. 

Information Presented. 

We will have a more detailed meeting in April via Zoom where our ASP Counselors will present important information regarding college application season which begins in the fall. We will also discuss important information regarding Senior Parking Spots, Senior Apparel Sales, and Senior Events.

Class Information Methods

Going forward, all Class of 2024 Information will be conveyed via the following methods:

Remind Code:  Please be sure you have joined the Class of 2024 on Remind using the classroom code @wwhsco2024 in the app or by texting the code to 81010. 

Facebook:  Woodrow Wilson High School Class of 2024 Parent Group

Class of 2024 E-News:  Be sure you have signed up on Membership Tool-Kit and identified your student as the Class of 2024. Important news will be sent periodically via this platform. 

Class of 2024 Senior Shirts

The PTA will be providing one free senior t-shirt to all of our Class of 2024 students this year! 

Students have been given a link to a Google Form to complete with t-shirt size and a nickname (12 characters max) no later than Tuesday, February 28th at 5:00 pm. 

Please check with your student to make sure that he/she has completed the form prior to the deadline. Students who do not complete the form will still receive a t-shirt, but it will not have a nickname and sizes will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Brick Campaign

Help support Woodrow by purchasing a commemorative brick! 

The Class of 2003 installed the first commemorative bricks and benches in our horseshoe to create a Woodrow “Walk of Pride” seating area. You can purchase a brick for a student, an alumnus, your favorite teacher, or your class. 

Orders are taken during the school year through the end of May. Installation will happen over the summer break.

Pricing: Current students can purchase a brick for $45. Once a student has graduated the price of the bricks will increase to $90. 

Keep in mind that this is a Fundraiser and there is a limited amount of space in our courtyard.

Purchase a Brick

Spirit Shop

The Spirit Shop will be open for afternoon shopping on Tuesday, February 28th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. right outside the big gym. Parents will need to enter through the front doors and get a visitor tag if arriving before 4:30 p.m. 

We will have all in in-stock available, as well as all polos priced at $10. This is a great time to stock up for next year to make sure your student has uniform shirts. The Spirit Shop will no longer sell polos after May. 

We WILL NOT be open Thursday morning next week. So, if you have orders to pick up, please come Tuesday afternoon. We are hoping this gives people who can’t make it in the mornings an opportunity to shop in person. 

See you Tuesday!

PTA Meeting

Our March meeting will take place next Wednesday, March 1st at 7:00 pm in the Library at Woodrow.  

Please join us if you can!
