Woodland School Parents' Association

WSPA is the Woodland School Parents’ Association. WSPA’s mission is to build community at Woodland School. 

The mission of the Woodland School Parents Association (WSPA) is to create and promote the sense of community that we at Woodland value and cherish. All parents are members of WSPA. The association is led by volunteer parents and coordinates special activities and fun events for the school.

WSPA also sponsors Helping Hands, the school’s network to assist any member of the community during a time of need.

The WSPA Board invites all parents to be part of this wonderful experience by taking on a role that best fits their busy lives. Do as little or as much as you can; every hour you spend volunteering makes it possible for us to achieve our goals in making our children’s experience at Woodland a joyous one.

All current Woodland families are automatically part of WSPA.


Stay Connected & Get Involved 

All families at Woodland are encouraged to join our WSPA Facebook group. Membership is restricted to current families only. Please request to join here:
