Walk Across Woodstock for a playground and clean roads!

Playground committee members Crystal Adams and Joan Fortin are lacing up their sneakers as they prepare to Walk Across Woodstock to help raise funds for the new playground and plan to help clean up the community along the way.

Woodstock has just over 148 miles of roads, and Joan and Crystal plan to walk at least 100 miles of them between March and June. With approximately $35,000 left to raise to meet their $100,000 goal, they hope to inspire families and businesses to pledge a dollar amount for mile or make a flat donation.

Joan Fortin came up with this idea. “Bringing a playground to our community is all about exercise, movement, physical fitness and fun. Instead of talking about the importance of exercise and movement, we are going to put our words into action and walk across Woodstock.”

Adams says she is hoping community members can join some of these walks. “When we are planning to walk a quiet back road where there is a place to park, we’d like to post the date, time, walk location and mileage to the Woodstock Middle School Playground Facebook page in case a few others can join us.” Adams has spoken to State Representative Pat Boyd who has agreed to join them on one of their walks.

Adams and Fortin will post photos of their walks to the Facebook page as well as update the total miles walked and the number of bags of trash they have collected. Watch for Adams and Fortin Walking Across Woodstock from March till June. They will wear bright-colored t-shirts for visibility. Follow their progress here on Facebook.

Join us by making a donation or pledging a dollar amount per mile walked. Please print the file linked below and mail or drop it off at the Woodstock Elementary School:

WMS Penny Wars!

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 10.43.08 AM

This week is the Penny War fundraiser at Woodstock Middle School! There are coin collection jars set out for each grade. Pennies, bills, and checks are positive points and should go into jar that is assigned to your child’s grade. One penny = 1 point, one dollar bill = 100 points, a five dollar bill or five dollar check = 500 points, and so on.

Students place silver coins into the jars of other grades. These coins are negative points and will take away from that grade’s total. A nickel will subtract 5 points, a dime subtracts 10 points, and a quarter subtracts 25 points.

Friday February 2nd is the last day for collection. The grade with the highest total wins a giant and fun game of human foosball set up in the gymnasium for them to play at an upcoming recess. See the photo below for an idea of how this game look. All funds will go towards the new playground!
