At last Tuesday’s PTSO Meeting, Woodson student Remka Nwana shared her experience participating in the High School Diplomats (HSD) ten-day cultural exchange program between Japanese and American high school students at Princeton University. The HSD presentation and 2018 application information is posted on the PTSO web site for those who want to review and/or share the information with their student.

There will not be a PTSO meeting in December.

As a thank you for reading the WeMail, the first three people who send an email to woodsonWEMail@woodsonptso.org with the subject line “read it” will each receive a coupon for a free Flippin Pizza. 

Buy a Brick and Make a Lasting Mark for your Student!

Need a great holiday gift for your graduating senior?  How about a wonderful legacy for your Woodson family?  The brick courtyard in front of the school, between the main entrance and the auditorium, still has plenty of room for bricks for you to remember your special student(s).  Engraved bricks are intermixed with regular paver bricks.  Individual bricks cost: $100.  Click here for the Brick Order form (also available on the Woodson PTSO website). If you have questions, or for more info contact Linda Vasquez at Lfvasquez88@gmail.com or 703-268-5068.
