Dear parents, students, staff and friends of Woodgrove High School:
2-4-6-8, Who do we appreciate???!!!
Woodgrove teachers and staff are the best in Western Loudoun and we have so much to thank them for! This year in particular I think has been a really rough year. Despite having so many snow days, they still have to find a way to cover all the curriculum they normally would in time for the May SOL and AP crush. Also, resolution of the budget this season was a particularly acrimonious affair, resulting in EVERY single teacher in Loudoun County taking home a reduction-in-force (RIF) notice. That certainly doesn't boost morale.
Well, now it is time to send them our thanks and appreciation. May 5-9th is Teacher Appreciation week and the PTSO has a variety of events planned for our staff, thanks to Karina Chiesa, our hospitality coordinator and YOU - our absolutely awesome Woodgrove parents. In addition to these events, however, we encourage you to please take some time out of your busy schedule and send in a note or have your student bring in something to that teacher who has made all the difference in their life. It doesn't have to be much - a heartfelt note is more personal precious than anything store bought. Just let them know that you care because we know that they certainly do! What they do for our children and the dedication they show goes way above and beyond the basics.SENIOR-ITIS AND GRAD NIGHT 2014 -YOUR NIGHT, YOUR PARTY.
It is spring and the trees are burdened with blossoms and the calendar is filled with important dates. I can feel it in the air! The end of the year is bearing down with college acceptances, prom, graduation, and GRAD NIGHT 2014. This year's party will outshine last year's event, so don't miss out! The Immortals will be rocking the gym. We will have casino games in the cafeteria, a temporary tattoo artist, virtual reality games, graffiti wall, photo booth, roaming magicians, food &refreshments, great prizes and so much more!
Mark your calendar for June 17th from 9 pm until 2 am. It is YOUR YEAR, YOUR PARTY
. Tickets for this event are on sale online on the school website as are tickets for our VIP RAFFLE
. If you want a no-hassle event, then take a chance to win guaranteed parking and seating for up to 8 people indoors or out.
Last but not least, we are looking for a few good men AND women to serve on the PTSO board next year. Rising 9th grade parents are also encouraged to get involved! Elections will be held at our May 13th meeting. We have a variety of positions for you to utilize your talents while also benefiting our school, staff and students. We have accomplished some amazing things in support of our school this year. Please contact me at WoodgrovePTSOPresident@gmail.com
