Box Tops, May 31: The last contest for this year is going on now and runs through May 31st.  Every student who submits box tops will get a prize with the top three collectors getting a special prize.  In addition, all box tops submitted at any time during the year count towards the full year contest which ends May 31st.

Please remember to include your child's full name and teacher's name when submitting Box Tops to ensure both your child and their class receive proper credit. 
 

4th Grade Community Service Project, The Art of Giving, Donations Due 6/2:  In conjunction with Woods Road School Family Art Night on May 18th, the 4th grade class will spearhead an art supply drive for ArtWorks, a nonprofit organization that provides art supplies to children suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses, as well as their siblings. These supplies keep patients and their siblings busy creating while anticipating a long day in treatment or accompanying a sibling to a procedure. Suggested donations include:  crayons, colored pencils, craft kits, etc.  Please see this flyer for full list of suggestions. Due to health reasons, only new, unopened, nontoxic art supplies can be accepted, as well as monetary donations.   
 

All Woods Road School families, regardless of grade, are encouraged to participate in the art supply drive.  Please place all art supplies in bins underneath the display case in the school lobby, or submit monetary donations in an envelope marked Fourth Grade Service Project (which will be used by ArtWorks for shipping costs, supplies and other administrative needs), no later than June 2nd. Make checks payable to 'ArtWorks, The Naomi Cohain Foundation'. (NOTE: credit card donations can be made at www.artworksfoundation.com). All donations are tax-deductible.
 

WRSHA General Meeting, June 8:  Our last General Meeting of the year is scheduled for June 8th at 7pm.   We will be voting on the 2017-2018 budget and Executive Board during this meeting, so please make sure to mark it in your calendars to attend!

YAD Shadow Needed: WRSHA is looking for committee chair volunteers to help run and organize next year's 2018 Young Author's Day event.  This year's committee chairs, Edith Pisciotta & Eileen Falk, are already gearing up for YAD 2017.  We are looking for an individual to shadow Edith & Eileen for their knowledge and expertise at the YAD June 2017 event.  If interested, please contact Ami Capizzano (amip74@yahoo.com).
