2021-2022 Year In Review!  What has PAWS done?
We would like to thank our entire Woodburn community for your generous support and incredible volunteer efforts this year. 
We had huge support this year in all of our fundraisers. Payback books did great, Read-A-Thon exceeded its $5000 goal, dine arounds were well attended and the Carnival & Silent Auction had record breaking attendance and revenue. This has allowed us to recoup our financial shortfalls from Covid over the past three years. 
And because of your generosity and support, PAWS was able to directly impact Woodburn students and staff considerably this year.  
We would like to celebrate the following contributions to Woodburn:
  • $8,900 awarded in teacher and staff grants

  • $2,416 - Legacy Grant funded for a new laminator

  • $600 - Legacy Grant funded for K-2 Heggerty Reading program

  • $2560 - Legacy Grant funded for 30 new Kore wobble chairs

  • $2500 - Mystery Science & Raz Kids software programs

  • $858 - Student Morale & PAWS Cares (purchased shadow stuffies for all new students, provided clothing for the health room & snacks for the front office)

  •  $600 Taproot Anti-Bullying Assembly

    TOTAL: $18,434   

*This is just a snapshot, not an actual total


As we look ahead to next school year we are planning to provide $9,100 in teacher grants plus we are preparing to rebuild the outdoor nature play area in Fall 2022.
