As we look ahead to next year, we have an exciting opportunity to develop an active and engaged PTO to serve our new 6-8th grade Middle School. The PTO is open to all caregivers of Shaker Middle School students and we welcome all whether you join us for one meeting or want to be on the executive board. We work throughout the year to plan community-building events, raise funds, and support our teachers and staff. If you’d like to join our executive board next year you can sign up for open roles HERE. Or if there’s another way you’d like to work with the PTO feel free to reach out to us at woodburyptopres@gmail.com.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to the Woodbury fundraiser.  Please take a moment to view this video that captures the beautiful artwork that students and staff created to celebrate the Woodbury community.



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.
