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.

Eclipse Public Safety Announcement

Posted by on Aug 17, 2017 in General Information | Comments Off on Eclipse Public Safety Announcement

Eclipse Public Safety Announcement

On Monday, August 21, there will be a solar eclipse occurring across the United States. This event will be visible in our area in the afternoon from about 12:00 pm until 3:00 pm. This event is sure to attract a lot of attention and we want to reach out to you with important safety information regarding viewing an eclipse.

Eclipses should only be viewed directly by using special solar eclipse glasses that contain a protective lens that shield your eyes from harmful rays. Everyday sunglasses, no matter how dark the lenses, will not protect your eyes adequately. Viewing an eclipse directly without this protective eyewear can cause serious damage to your eyes, even if you only stare at the sun for a brief period of time. You will not feel this damage when it occurs and it may be several hours before you see the effects of that damage. Your student was given a flyer containing this information today.

Since students will not have the appropriate protective eyewear to view the eclipse, WBMS will not allow direct viewing of the eclipse during school hours. Instead, our students will have the opportunity to view on-line streaming and television coverage of the event in their respective classrooms.

Another concern that we have is our students will be released from school at the height of the eclipse (1:26 pm). We will be reminding students before and as they exit the building to not look at the eclipse.

You can view a PSA video about the eclipse at  https://vimeo.com/227976663.

You may also view a flyer with Solar Eclipse Viewing Tips that will be distributed to students.

Please discuss these precautions and concerns with your student prior to coming to school Monday. Thank you for your assistance.
