Curriculum Enrichment Grants & Allocations
Each year, the Woodridge PTO raises funds through events and donations. A large percentage of these fundraising efforts are given back to the school, the teachers, and the staff in the form of Curriculum & Enrichment Grants & Allocations. These grants are an important part of maintaining Woodridge's standards of excellence in education.
For the 2019-2020 school year, the Woodridge PTO Curriculum Enrichment Grants totaled $128,540.00 and funded the following:
- HANDS ON LEARNING: School Store Supplies for the “store” run by our very own Woodridge 5th graders
