Please plan to join us for the upcoming Teacher Planning Day at Academy Theater for the LEGO Movie! The film will start at 11:30am, admission is $3 per person and $10 per family and ALL admission proceeds benefit Woodstock Elementary!! Click here for more information on this movie.
Cash, check or cards will be accepted (we'll have our Square app on hand to accept payments). The Academy Theater is located at 7818 SE Stark, 97215. Let's show them our appreciation for hosting us by supporting their concessions!
AND...One of our all-time favorite coffee shops, Papaccino's, has partnered with the Woodstock PTA to offer our first ever "Coffee Out" on this same day! Stop by Papaccino's for a fresh coffee, latte or yummy breakfast treat at any time on Monday, 11/10, and 15% of sales will come directly back to Woodstock Elementary. Be sure to tell them you're from Woodstock in order for your order to count (backpack fliers will be coming soon!). Papaccino's is located at 4411 SE Woodstock Blvd. Like Papaccino's on Facebook here.
WINTER COAT SWAP
Nov 17 (Donations welcome between Nov. 3 and Nov. 17)
Brrr! It's getting chilly out there! One of our wonderful parents had the great idea to set up a coat swap for our students. Winter coats can be expensive, and children grow so fast, that all families could use an opportunity to share and swap their cold weather gear.
We are collecting the following:
· Gently used coats, jackets and hoodies
· Gently used or new hats and gloves
· New warm socks
The collection will begin on November 3. Please drop your donations at the back of the cafeteria stage. The 'shop and swap' time will be between drop off and pick up onNovember 17. Adults can sign up for a time, or come anytime without an appointment.
We would love volunteers to help sort the donations into sizes to make the 'shopping' easier. All unclaimed or unused articles will be donated to the PPS Clothing Center at Marshall HS.
More questions? Contact Beth Iverson or Liz Delmatoff.
We are still looking for:
· Cafeteria helpers Monday-Wednesday (8:15-9:15)
· Recess Monitors, sign up by the day here
Please contact Moana Rogerson if you are interested in getting more involved.

The PTA would like to extend a big THANK YOU to Maggie of Maggie's Buns Catering. Maggie gave our PTA a very nice discount so that we could provide lunch for teachers during conferences. She is very talented and we are so thankful that she shared her skills with our talented teachers. Maggie's Buns cafe is located in Forest Grove and was a 2013 Wedding Wire Brides Choice winner for catering. Next time you are headed to the coast or find yourself in Forest Grove, stop by and treat yourself to amazing food. A big thanks also to Robin Krill for doing a great job organizing the PTA lunch for the teachers.
