Volunteering at WHMS
WHMS parents are invited to join our committees.
The Diversity committee is an inclusive working group of parents, teachers, staff, and students who are committed to increasing awareness and appreciation of benefits of diversity for all of our children and the entire school community. Membership is open. All are encouraged to attend.
Our Green Team committee plans initiatives to educate and have students participate in activities and initiatives to help students learn and practice ways to help preserve earth’s resources. Activities have included the ‘no waste’ school lunch initiative, recycling that included a trip to the recycling center, tree planting, gardens to grow food, educational displays to educate the community about reducing waste. The Farm-to-School Committee works towards developing activities to enhance classroom education relating to food, health, agriculture, and nutrition. Meetings will include topical discussions such as local food procurement, gardening practices, lesson ideas, and how to encourage healthy choices. This year the committee will establish both long-term and short-term goals for Woodland Hill.
The Gala is our biggest fundraising event of the year. Typically, 200 members of the WHMS community gather for a sit-down dinner, music and dancing, along with an auction of classroom projects and other items. In 2021, the Gala was virtual, but we are hoping for an in-person event in the spring of 2022.
