The Woodward Fund Update
Currently, $1,409,746 has been received toward the 2014-2015 Woodward Fund goal of $1,825,000. We sincerely thank all who have given!
Every student benefits from The Woodward Fund. It provides cutting-edge technology, resources for the classroom, arts, athletics, and extracurricular activities. While tuition gives our students access to all of Woodward’s opportunities, charitable gifts are necessary to meet our operating budget and to sustain and expand the Woodward experience.
If you have yet to make your commitment, please give today at www.woodward.edu/go/giving or call Naylene Felt, Assistant Director of The Woodward Fund at 404.765.4036. You may pay gifts with cash, credit card, securities, or make a pledge for fulfillment by May 31, 2015.
Thank you for supporting our students, teachers, and coaches through your gift to The Woodward Fund!

Help Needed With Art Project
All Middle School families are asked to help with a future "assemblage" art project. We will be collecting plastic bottle caps of all colors and sizes. These caps are found on soft drinks, bottled water, laundry detergent, coffee creamers, hairspray, deodorant cans, etc. The idea is to make a large mosaic-type mural from these often discarded items. Everyone – not just art students – can be a part of this collaborative venture! Please help us by saving your bottle tops and sending them in with your student. Donations may be placed in the collection box in the entryway hall of the Middle School building. See how a bottle top mural is a fun, colorful, and ecologically savvy experience for our school.
