October is Bullying Prevention Month

Posted by on Oct 5, 2017 in General Information | Comments Off on October is Bullying Prevention Month

WBMS will be recognizing Bullying Prevention Month throughout October.  We have a number of activities planned throughout this month, to help us ‘Take a Stand Against Bullying’.  Our October HERO Friday will focus on kindness, acceptance, awareness, and community.  We will reinforce these themes throughout the month.  We will also have our ‘Lend a Hand, Take a Stand’ pledge activity, where students pledge through handstamps to be an Upstander, not a Bystander.

Finally, we will culminate the month with our Red Ribbon Week activities, ‘Misfit/Mismatched Sock Day’ and other awareness campaigns.  All of these dress up days help bring awareness to bullying prevention and the aforementioned traits of kindness, acceptance, awareness, and community.

Please see below for some additional resources.  We’ll be exploring these, too, and ask that you do with your students, at home.  Together, we are building a community, one where students feel good about being at school, and we will work on this throughout our school year!  Thank you for your participation and support!

National School Lunch Week

Posted by on Oct 3, 2017 in General Information | Comments Off on National School Lunch Week

Wildcat families, WBMS and the SRCSD Food Services Department will be celebrating National School Lunch Week from October 9th – 13th.

We will start on Monday, October 9th with our annual Military Appreciation Lunch at the WBMS cafeteria.  We would like to invite all of our active duty or retired military parents to join their children for “lunch on the house” that day.  All non-military parents are welcome as well.  We sent home a reservation form that has more information.  Please see your student or contact the front desk if interested.

Then, throughout the rest of the week, we will be celebrating School Lunch with community members, School Board members and our local legislative members.   This year’s theme is “Recipes for Success”.

We will be introducing new recipes and providing samples throughout the week.  Watch for our Limited Time Recipes throughout the week like, Autumn Fruit Salad, Cranberry Tukey Melt, and Asian Salad.  Our focus during this week is to engage the students, highlight school lunch and encourage student achievement through nutrition.

We appreciate your support of National School Lunch Week and look forward to another amazing week at Woodlawn!

Coupon Book Fundraiser

Posted by on Sep 12, 2017 in General Information, School Spirit | Comments Off on Coupon Book Fundraiser

Today, each student received information about participating in our annual Coupon Book Fundraiser, which we will be conducting from September 12 to September 22.  We will be selling FundRays savings books, which offer valuable coupons to many local eateries and other establishments.  Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used for student rewards, classroom and teacher support including supplies and equipment, and school enhancements.

This event is hugely important for our school.  We want to continue to do great things at Woodlawn, and our coupon book fundraiser helps tremendously with these efforts.  The coupon books fundraiser provides funding for projects that normally would not be funded.

Please consider supporting Woodlawn through this fundraiser.  Please contact us at 850-934-4010 or see your student if interested in purchasing and/or selling coupon books!

Also, you may visit [deleted–fundraiser is over] to advertise and sell books.  This website is a dedicated site for our school, through which students and families may sell books online.  If you have social media, please share this website to help increase our sales!

Finally, as a specific example of one of the efforts supported through the coupon book fundraiser, Woodlawn is going to donate 10% of the profits to Hurricane Irma relief.  We are Florida strong and want to do what we can to lift those up throughout our state that are currently in need.

In advance, many thanks.
