WOODLAND VOLUNTEER BREAKFAST: May 25th at 8:15 a.m.
The Parent Volunteer Breakfast is being held on Thursday May 25 at 8:15 am. If you volunteer at Woodland (whether it's on a regular basis or on occasion) - this event is for you!  We changed our invitation system this year and we are concerned that some may not have been sent.  We also realize that sometimes papers don't get from desk to backpack or backpack to home!
ALL volunteers are welcome so if you have not already responded, please send an email to Mrs. Yocum (tyocum@methacton.org)
We provide babysitting if you wish to bring your child along. We look forward to seeing you on the 25th!

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TRANSITION NEWS
Eagleville Elementary will host its Open House on Thursday, June 1, 6-7 p.m.  This is a great opportunity for your whole family to check out your new school if you are moving to Eagleville. 
The Methacton Coordinating Council has put together a survey for ALL elementary parents. We want to hear what activities you love at your school and what you enjoy helping with.  Please help our Home & School Associations with their planning for the upcoming year by taking this brief survey
 
WOODLAND MUSIC POLO/FIELD TRIP T-SHIRT COLLECTION
If you are graduating or changing schools next year and no longer need your Woodland music polo or green Woodland field trip t-shirts, we are collecting them.  Please send in any (washed) shirts so that they can be available for incoming Audubon students or any other student in need.  There will be a collection box in the lobby available for students to put their shirts. Thank you! 
 
WANTED: OLD BEDDING, LINEN, and MORE! 
It is springtime and we all know what that means- warm days, cool nights and plenty of new puppies and kittens.  ACCT, Animal Care and Control Team, is in need of gently used bedding, linen, towels, or any animal items you no longer use.  Please consider donating these items through Woodland Elementary School where they will be transported to ACCT.  There is a bin in the entranceway where you can deposit items.  We are collecting from now until June 2nd, so go through those closets, get your spring cleaning done, and donate to save some animals at the same time.  Win-Win!  Thank you in advance for your kind donation. ACCT Animal Item Drive

KONSTELLA IS OUR NEW COMMUNICATION SYSTEM!
Tired of trying to figure out how to sign up for or get removed from e-alerts?  We are trying something new this year!  Konstella is a web and app-based parent communication system that we hope will keep everyone connected with Woodland.  E-alerts will be phased out. There are a few ways to sign up:
1. Go to www.konstella.com, and then click on "Find Your School"
 
2. Or, look for the flyer with the unique Woodland school code on it in your first-day packet and enter it to sign up.
 
3. Or, send an email to liz_drummond@hotmail.com and ask for an invitation to join.  Please state your name and your child's name and class. 
 
Once you are in the system, download the free Konstella app to stay connected when you are on-the-go and get notifications directly on your phone.
