PTO Thanksgiving Food Drive For Bristol Lodge & Homeless Shelter (Now thru Nov. 25)

More details in the attached flyer. Please involve your students and give generously! Volunteer opportunities available-see below under “Volunteer Opportunities”.

School Pictures Update

Three updates:

  1. We will have Class Composites this year! While it will look a bit different than a traditional class photo, we have been able to work with CoffeePond to secure class composite photos for all classes at Woodland! These class composites will be delivered separately from indiv. pictures, likely in January.
  2. Picture Retake Day will be on Thursday, December 3rd.  For in-person students, photos will start at 10:30 am and for RLA students photos will be from 12-12:30 pm.  Retakes will be taken inside the school due to the cold weather.
  3. For any RLA families that want their student photos sent to their homes (vs sent to school for pickup), please contact CoffeePond at (508) 907-6633 (ext 0) and change the shipping location to your home address.

Request for Laundry Bags

Don’t forget to have your student bring in a drawstring laundry bag by December 1st. Please make sure that it is easy to close, washable, an appropriate size for your child to carry, and NOT mesh. Please label with child’s name. Laundry bags will be sent home with your child weekly for laundering. Please contact Midge Connolly for help with this purchase (remains anonymous).  We are also accepting donations of laundry bags for those willing to donate. Please contact Lauren Burns or Courtney Farkas for donations.
