Volunteer Spotlight 

This month, we would like to introduce you to our Special Lunch committee members: Lindley Caldwell, Mary Petros, Teresa Nagrani, Jordana Fox and Sarah Boundy. These ladies do a fabulous job organizing one of our biggest fundraisers (and favorite treat) for all our students. 

Lindley Caldwell has been an indispensable volunteer for Woodlawn, serving as chair on several of our committees. Lindley is well-organized, dependable, and has a heart for volunteering. She keeps our special lunch running like a well-oiled machine, organizing  endors, placing orders and making sure everything runs smoothly behind-the-scenes.

Mary Petros organizes our volunteers for Special Lunch and Dessert Day. Mary is always happy to help out when she can and has served on SL committee for three  ears. Her boys will be moving on to Stevenson next year, and we will be sad to lose such a great volunteer. 

Teresa Nagrani, like Lindley, is an indispensable D96 fixture when it comes to running and/or helping out the PTO. Teresa helps organize tickets so all of the kids are able to get through lines efficiently, no easy feat when you see the number of kids coming through those lines.

Jordana Fox helps all the committee members stay organized and chips in, in many  capacities, such as, helping order the sides and water each month. She is a reliable and  helpful member of the special lunch committee. 

We have also been fortunate to have Sarah Boundy jump in and help Jordana with water and sides during the first semester. As mentioned, she stepped in when she saw a need and is another great example of the wonderful community of volunteers we have here at Woodlawn. 

If you help out on one of our Special Lunch days this year, you are certain to meet one or all of these ladies. They are always friendly and love to share their knowledge of our school. Make sure to introduce yourself and get to know them better: Each is awesome at making new people feel welcome. 

We couldn’t do all our PTO is able to do without great volunteers like Lindley, Mary, Teresa, Jordana and Sarah! Reach out to us if you would like to get involved with leaders like the ones listed above.  Joining in is a piece of cake. These ladies will show you the ropes and support you in any way you need!

January starts our search for PTO  board members and committee members for the 2022-2023 school year. We would love to have you join us! 

We encourage you to continue to read our MONTHLY BLOG during the school  year for information on upcoming events.  

Please don’t forget to follow us on our Social Media Accounts for more up-to-date  information.
