Carole Hayes, former WA English teacher, led a wonderfulbook discussion for the APA group. Everyone was very engaged and, despite thefact the many didn’t “love” the book, there was no lack of conversation oropinions aboutTen White Geese!   

 

Our January event should be very interesting as well as the group works throughThe Hare with the Amber Eyes

 

Alumnae Parent Connection

 


     The Alumnae Parents Connection (APC) is an organization that focuses on keeping parents of Woodlands Academy Alumnae connected with the school after their daughters have graduated. Launched in 2009 as the Alumnae Parent Association, the group has been re-christened as the Alumnae Parents Connection to emphasize the group’s mission to stay connected with Woodlands Academy.  Our mission statement is unchanged and states:

    The purpose of the Woodlands Academy Alumnae Parents Connection (APC) is to provide a means for Alumnae Parents of Woodlands’ graduates to stay connected with the school by maintaining a warm association with the Woodlands Community. The APC’s mission is to sponsor and participate in purposeful activities which include:
-hosting opportunities that allow Alumnae parents to return to the school to reconnect,
-enriching the educational experience for current students and parents;
-supporting the faculty and staff with time and talents,
-promoting the school to the community at large.

     The APC’s first activity was to create and open the WA School Store which thrives today. APC members have supported Woodlands fundraisers including Winter WonderWalk and Conge with our time, talents, and treasure. We enjoy social get-togethers that have included cocktail parties and book review events. The APC has also sponsored the annual Off to College Panel for parents of graduating seniors for the past four years. The theme of ‘parents helping parents’ is at the core of this important panel discussion.  

     We look forward to having you join APC events after your daughter graduates. It is a wonderful way to see close friends that you enjoyed during your time at Woodlands Academy and to stay connected with the school. Please plan to participate in all of our events beginning in the Fall.
