Raising Donations to Provide Document Cameras to All Classroom Teachers

At the last PTA meeting, members voted to provide document cameras to allow teachers to project anything on to the classroom screen, for all of Woodburn’s classroom teachers. Woodburn teachers asked for document cameras to improve classroom technology. We will be able to buy about half the cameras with existing PTA funds, and we need your support to provide the rest! We are so excited to give back to Woodburn teachers in this way! You may send payment to school (make checks to Woodburn PTA) or through the Paypal link on our site.

#GivingTuesday (11/29/2016)

giving-tuesday-logoThanksgiving is a day for giving thanks, and now a there is global day for giving back. On Tuesday, November 29th, 2016, GIVING TUESDAY, give your child a gift that lasts a lifetime – a tax-deductible donation to the Woodburn PTA.

From field trips and our Kennedy Center partnership, to technology and arts programs, Woodburn PTA supports programs and initiatives our children don’t get through federal, state or local government funding. But to keep it going, we need your help. Your support is more than a gift; it’s an investment in your child’s future.

This year, the PTA committed to providing document cameras to all Woodburn classroom teachers. Document cameras allow teachers to project almost anything on to a screen to help children learn. Woodburn teachers listed document cameras as their top choice for improving classroom technology.  We are providing 11 cameras at $3,010 out of existing PTA funds, and we need YOUR HELP to provide the rest!

Checks, made payable to “Woodburn PTA” can be returned to your child’s classroom, the school office or mailed to: Woodburn PTA, Woodburn Elementary, 3401 Hemlock Dr., Falls Church, VA 22042. To donate online, click the Paypal link to the right of this page.
