Volunteer Spotlight 

This month we would like to highlight the work of our three Book Fair Committee Chairs: 

  • Marlene Aaron
  • Donna Cobb
  • Elizabeth Owens

​​​​​​​Woodlawn hosts one book fair a year and this past November, we had a very successful fair with proceeds going to our school library. 

Marlene Aaron has eight years of Book Fair experience between Kildeer and Woodlawn. She is dedicated to getting grade-appropriate materials to our students while helping to raise money at the same time. Marlene is also the Recording Secretary for the PTO Executive Board. We are so lucky to have Marlene at our school with all of her volunteer experience in our district — even more so, for her willingness to jump in and lend a hand, whenever needed. She is always one of the first people to volunteer her time when she hears of an area of need!

Donna Cobb, as well, has been involved with Book Fair often during her years as a dedicated  Woodlawn volunteer. Donna is currently serving as Treasurer for our Executive Board. It is a rare situation when you ask for help that Donna is not jumping on board, giving 100 percent to help  things stay organized and run smoothly. 

Elizabeth Owens stepped up to help work the week of Book Fair. You may recall from an earlier  Spotlight that Elizabeth is our PTO President and is continuously busy working to pull off this year’s activities as close as possible to year’s past. 

We hope you have a chance to interact with these ladies as you become involved with our PTO.  Each holds a wealth of knowledge about our PTO, school, and district. 

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