The Woodland School Family Council is about CONNECTING with other Woodland Families,                           our children and their peers, CONTRIBUTING to the school and our children’s experience here, and CREATING memories for all.

2017 - 2018 Family Council Sponsored Events

There are numerous ways

YOU can become involved.  



Family Council has been around since the beginning of Woodland School, over twenty years ago!  This parent-driven group supports the students and staff of Woodland  through numerous events such as the ones detailed below.  These activities are only possible through parent participation and most are organized using SignUpGenius.com  


Join us as we ensure “uniquely Woodland” experiences for the Woodland School community.  


The council meets three to four times a year, typically in the school library at 3:45 PM. Child care and a snack are provided.  Join us!
