Seeking Woodbury PTO Board Members and Event Chairs: If you are interested in becoming a change agent for Woodbury PTO, please consider becoming a board member or chairing an event.  We are changing events to make them accessible for the working parent/guardian.  With a focus on building a stronger community through PTO engagement, the district's evolving PTO's mission is to become more equitable, engaged, and a tool for education enrichment.  Please consider being a part of this process!

A Note About Lunches (and Snacks)

We know parents have concerns about the lunches offered at Woodbury. Click here to view the Ohio Board of Education's School Lunch information page (including a contact to call with questions).
It is difficult to control the choices our children make for lunch but now is the time to educate about the right choices and the wrong choices in more ways than one, food being a part that education. Click here to view the state guidelines for smart snacks, a lot of these are based on the calories required.
