Welcome to Woodbury PTO! All parents and caregivers are automatically members so we invite you to participate with us as much as your schedule allows. It's going to be a great year at Shaker's upper elementary school filled with fun community-building opportunities for families plus numerous ways to engage in your student's educational success. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events! To get in touch with the PTO co-presidents, please email woodburyptopres@gmail.com.




Thank you to everyone for your donations and support of Woodbury. Thank you to the school staff for making the video and completing the art project in school. We truly appreciate the time spent reflecting on the good things happening in school. We have raised more than $11,500 that will be used for PTO events and programs in the coming year to build community, support our teachers, and have fun! 


Look for the beautiful artwork created by Woodbury students in the halls of the school.    


A special thank you to Pizzazz, Upper Crust Pizza and Ben and Jerry’s for donating items for class parties. 


We are looking forward to the amazing events coming up throughout the winter and spring to celebrate our amazing school community. 


Check out this fundraiser video our school put together that highlights Ubuntu--I am because we are--the guiding principle for Woodbury this year.  We LOVE Woodbury Video
