Throughout the year, the students and staff of Woodland Heights strive to give back to the community in as many ways as we can. Our students are seeing first hand how fulfilling and rewarding it can be to help others.
Here are a few of the causes our school has supported so far this year:
Jumprope for Heart raises several thousand dollars each year for the American Heart Association.
At the beginning of last year, two 2nd grade girls, Jordan and Maddi, decided to form a group to encourage the rest of the school (and our community) to recycle plastic, paper, and aluminum products. They named their club the Green Team, and to date have 22 members. Together, thay have rounded up mountains of products to be recycled.
The Ronald McDonald House has been collecting soda can tabs for several years. For each pound of tabs donated for recycling, a child with cancer receives a free radiation treatment. Braxtyn Foster has collected a Five gallon bucket of tabs.
Maggie Lee for Good is named after a former Woodland Heights student who was killed in a traffic accident. Students and staff bring canned goods throughout the year to be donated to Good Samaritan in memory of our sweet Maggie Lee.
The Miltary Support Group is a local group that we have helped by sending card,letters and goody bags to deployed soldiers.
