What is Woodlynde Hall of Fame?

It’s time for our annual month-long FUNdraising drive for the Annual Fund for Woodlynde! This year we’re celebrating teachers with the theme Woodlynde Hall of Fame: Champions of Every Student. Why? Because Woodlynde teachers are the most important part of our students’ success. Money raised through the Annual Fund helps to recruit and retain stellar teachers. Our goal is to raise $150,000 by April 15 in support of our teachers, students, and school. But we can only do it with your help! In addition to a little friendly competition among our teams, we also have an exciting matching gift challenge that will match our first $50,000 raised! Read more below, look for weekly email updates, and make your gift to the Annual Fund for Woodlynde today!
