2022-2023 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. 
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:
  • $9,100 awarded in teacher and staff grants

  • $1,223 - Legacy Grant funded for 2nd grade reading program

  • $585 - Legacy Grant funded for 3rd grade Bridges math

  • $295 - Legacy Grants funded for Woodburn music & choir programs

  • $429 - Legacy Grants funded for LaLooska (3rd) and BizTown (5th) field trips

  • $1,019 - Legacy Grant funded for new iCom & Baofeng radios for Woodburn staff
  • $2500 - Legacy Grant funded for educational software such as IXL, CBM Math testing, Scholastic News, etc.
  • $1300 - Student Morale & PAWS Cares (purchased shadow stuffies for all new students, provided clothing for the health room & snacks for the front office, provided community events such as The Reptile Man)

  •  $1,400 - Staff Appreciation events, gift cards and more!

  • $1,100 Taproot Anti-Bullying Assemblys (virtual - Fall, in person - Spring)

    TOTAL: $18,951   

*This is just a snapshot, not an actual total


As we look ahead to next school year we are planning to provide $9,500 in teacher grants plus we are preparing to provide an additional $7,500 in funding to offset budget cuts in Fall 2023.
