Woodburn PAWS

WHO WE ARE

The Parents Association of Woodburn Students (PAWS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). We are an inclusive, volunteer organization with an elected board of directors.  All parents and legal guardians of children currently enrolled at Woodburn Elementary School are regular, full voting members of the Parents Association of Woodburn Students and may vote at any General Membership Meeting.  There are no membership dues.

 

 

 

(See our Equity and Inclusion Statement and a list of helpful resources here.)

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The purpose of PAWS is to improve the educational experience at Woodburn Elementary School by supporting select school programs, while also fostering positive relationships and a spirit of community between school staff and Woodburn families.

 

We also enrich Woodburn education through legacy purchases. These legacy investments are intended to have a lasting impact on current and future students. Examples include our playground buddy bench, a new PA system for the PE instructor, Lego robotics kits, and outdoor learning & natural play areas.
