WELCOME TO THE
Welcome Wolverine Parents, Students and Staff!
On behalf of the PTSO, I would like to personally welcome all new and returning families to Woodgrove High School. My name is Adrienne Lyne, and I am honored to be your PTSO President this year. This is my 5th year as a member of our amazing school and organization and I am extremely excited for another great year!
As I was aggressively searching for candidates for the 2015-16 Executive Board, the overwhelming response I received was “I am just too busy”. After hearing this over and over, I realized I was asking people to do something that I thought I didn’t have enough time to do myself. And it took hearing it over and over again for me to realize that I do have the time; I have made the time for the last 4 years as I sat on the PTSO board. It was at that moment that I knew it was my time to step out of my comfort zone and follow my passion of working with the Parents, Students and Staff at Woodgrove High School by nominating myself for PTSO President. So, as you start this school year off, I ask you, what is your passion? And are you willing to step out of your comfort zone to bring your passion to life and possibly make a difference in someone’s life?
The WHS PTSO has many accomplishments, from the first staff welcome back breakfast to the final Senior breakfast and the Grad Party that follows, we have worked both minor and major miracles behind the scenes, and we couldn’t have done it without the help of all our wonderful WHS community, teachers, students, and most of all – parents.
Last year, the PTSO awarded four scholarships to seniors, including two students of the CAMPUS program – the first generation in their family to attend college. The PTSO purchased 12 Chromebooks for the WHS Special Education Department, purchased a new microwave for student use, and sponsored a variety of student clubs and organizations competing at regional, national and international levels.
The PTSO raises funds through membership dues, school reward programs, volunteer work, Kaplan ACT/SAT test registrations, and other fundraisers throughout the school year. The PTSO also provides volunteers for school related activities – from staff appreciation week to the Battle of the Books and also works with many Western Loudoun community organizations.
We strive to keep parents informed of all school activities by publishing the Woodgrove Weekly enewsletter, and through our Facebook page and Twitter feed. Large or small, please know that everyone in the WHS community can make a difference in our school. We are looking forward to working with you, so please join us today...every minute and every person counts!
