BOX TOPS UPDATE
The spring battle has started and you can bring in boxtops until the end of May to be counted towards your class's total. Remember to put your name and class on the baggie when you turn in boxtops.
 
POST PROM INFORMATION
The Post-Prom Committee is in the final planning stage for the annual Methacton Post Prom event.  This year’s event is on April 21st at the high school.  This is their 17th year providing a very fun, safe environment all night long for our high school juniors and seniors immediately after their prom.  Prom night is known to be one of the riskiest nights in the life of a teenager and we are proud Methacton has such an amazing group of volunteers to continue this tradition; however, they cannot do it without your support!
The committee is still in need of a committee chair this year for our Sponsor Recognition Booklet, which is distributed during the Community Walk-Through.  As always, we need hundreds of volunteers for the set-up, the actual night of the event and clean-up the next morning.  A volunteer form is here:.https://goo.gl/forms/RbL5VtIn0ehXCH5k1

COMMUNITY WALK-THROUGH

Come out for the community walk through on Friday, April 21st at 6 pm to explore the halls magically decorated and experience the awe of the evening.  Each year we expect nearly 1,000 community members to attend the walk-through event.  It’s a great way to catch the Post Prom bug and be inspired to volunteer!

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.
