2023 Operetta — Grease
Thank you to all our WES families who showed incredible generosity during the WOODCHELLA Grand Auction on Saturday night and Online Auction. The Foundation would like to thank all attendees, donors, and volunteers, who each, in their own part, made the auction a wonderful success — and especially to our fabulous Grand Auction Chair, Melissa Land! Photos coming soon. 

Auction Invoices
Auction invoices were emailed on Tuesday, May 23. Please review your invoice carefully and email the office immediately if you find any errors or have any questions. Payment by check if preferred and instructions will be available on your invoice. Payment is due by Wednesday, May 31.

If yours wasn't the winning paddle on Saturday night, or you couldn't join us in person, don't worry. You can still participate in our virtual Raise-a-Paddle to make a donation. Click below for details. The WSF provides approx. 15% of the school's overall budget and a Raise-a-Paddle donation is the easiest and most tax-efficient way to keep funding all the programming that makes Woodside special!

No Dogs on Campus
Please do not bring your dogs to campus at ANYTIME. This includes after-school sport teams/clubs using the WES fields. This is a school policy and signs are posted throughout campus. We have had a significant problem with dog waste on our fields and campus. It is also important to provide a clean and safe environment for our students, especially those with allergies and animal fears. Please use our beautiful Woodside trails to walk your dogs.
