Woodland Educational Foundation

The Woodland Foundation is back! The Foundation helps support Woodland teachers and students by providing funding to bring innovative projects, programs, and supplemental learning materials to the classroom. The 501C (3) organization consists of dedicated volunteers looking to enhance the educational opportunities available to the Woodland learning community. They held a reorganization meeting in June and a few new Foundation Board Members have stepped forward to lead the Foundation. Now they are looking for a few more volunteers! If you are interested in serving in a Board position, they are specifically looking for a Treasurer and Secretary. There is also an opportunity to get involved as a Friend of the Foundation, or by donating to the Foundation. If interested, please send an email to Dr. Machak at
