Woodbine Elementary School PTA sponsored the post-graduation party at Ronnie’s hall.
The PTA provided a buffet dinner for the graduates and their parents.

PTA also gave a pizza party to the Blue team, winners of WES’s 2006 Field Day.
We pause to thank the PTA members and family volunteers for all their ongoing work for the children,often while coping with illness and other time constraints within their own family.
Perhaps the old adage that asking a busy person is how to get things done is proven here.

It’s the start of summer by the calendar now, with schools closed and vacations underway.
The longest days of the year, and then the not yet perceptable shortening.
Enjoy the Solstice, the summer nights, including Midsummer’s, the lightning bugs, the night-scented blooms, and remember: summer is too short a season to wish away waiting for September.
