Summer’s here!

Thank you for all your support this past year! Your PTA is already gearing up for the Fall!

This summer, please encourage your child to reflect about this topic: Within Reach.

This Fall, Woodburn PTA will take part in the National PTA Reflections program.

Does your child enjoy art, music and dance or have an interest in writing, producing films and taking photos? We’d love for them to join us and have fun unleashing their inner artist with PTA Reflections! This year’s theme, “Within Reach,” calls for their own unique interpretation through the arts: literature, dance, photography, film, music, and visual arts.

Ask them: Do you have a story to tell? Whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose, start writing it down. Your story can be anything that interprets the theme, Within Reach.

Ask them: Do you love to take photos or video? Whether you’re playing in the park or visiting a mountaintop, take your camera. You may find the perfect shot that interprets the theme, Within Reach.

For inspiration and to learn more, visit

More details will be provided in September.

Have a great summer!
