What IS the Woodview PTO?
The mission of the Woodview PTO is to enrich the education of all of Woodview's students and to build community within the Woodview family. We seek to accomplish this through social events, including the Lip Sync Show, as well as through fundraisers, such as Innisbrook, Market Day, and Scholastic Book Fairs. Some events, like Family Fun Night, are opportunities to build our school community and also to raise funds for purchases that directly impact our kids' learning. These investments include SMART Boards, assemblies, and the construction of the outdoor classroom, among others.
How are funds raised?
The Woodview PTO aims to provide a variety of giving opportunities to Woodview families, and also to minimize the impact of fundraisers on our parents and their pocketbooks. Participation in any fundraiser is, of course, optional. We hope that by hosting events such as the Lip Sync Show, parents have the chance not only to donate to a worthwhile cause, but also to enjoy a night out with their kids in a fun, safe, family-oriented atmosphere. Of particular note are fundraising programs that provide essential funds to the PTO, yet are easy to join and are at no cost to parents, such as Box Tops for Education and the Target REDcard program. We hope you will take the time to participate in these programs.
Some of the events and fundraisers for the 2013-2014 school year were:
Book Fairs (Fall and Spring)
Box Tops for Education
Dine & Share restaurant promotions
WOW Fun Run
Lip Sync Show
Square 1 Art
Grants from organizations such as Kohl's, Walmart, and Annie's Homegrown
Where does the money go?
The Woodview PTO is a not-for-profit organization. That means that every dollar raised goes directly to programs, activities, materials, and events that will benefit our kids and the staff at Woodview. Please stay tuned for the 2015-2016 contributions to the following programs:
Curriculum Enrichment and Classroom Supplies

Fine Arts Assemblies
