Welcome From the President
Hello Woodland Families!
My name is Jeana Salman and this is my 5th year at Woodland as a parent. It's my 1st year as President of Friends of Woodland. When I was a new Pre-K parent, I initially felt overwhelmed with such a large school and struggled to find how I could feel part of the community. Joining the PTO has been the best experience to solve for that and I hope you'll follow me.
We are looking forward to some changes this year including better communication, a new and improved Friends of Woodland website, and some new events that will keep everyone safe whether we do them in-person or virtual. I hope you'll register on our website, sponsor the PTO, and volunteer with us in some capacity so we can get to know one another and support our wonderful Woodland Elementary School.
What is PTO?
PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization, which is a volunteer-run organization with a mission to make schools a better place for students to learn and grow.
We are a group of parents, guardians, family and community members, teachers, and administrators who work together to create fun events, purchase necessities for the school, and collaborate with others to make our students; time at Woodland the best possible.
If you have a student at Woodland or are a staff member, we would love for you to join us!
