JOIN US ON THE BOARD OR AS A LEAD!
At our Spring General Meeting, we thanked retiring board members Jennifer Hochstedler, Helen Shellman, and Elizabeth Ault for their service to the board the past few years. And thank you to Andrea Sandoval for her time as secretary this past year. Thank you so much for all you've done for PAWS!

Woodburn PAWS recognizes that families are facing some difficult conversations around race and privilege, especially in light of the ongoing nationwide protests. You may recall Read Across America’s theme this year was "Celebrating a Nation of Diverse Readers." Because everyone can benefit from hearing each other's stories, we are including some links to resources and stories. Woodburn PAWS is an inclusive organization that welcomes and supports all of our students and families. Our group has no dues and families are automatically members because we don’t want any family to be excluded. Thank you for the work you are doing. We appreciate you!
