Woodburn Students Help To Restore the Steigerwald Refuge

During a recent field trip to the Steigerwald Refuge in Washougal, Woodburn 5th graders explored the landscape and helped with restoration. Students planted a mix of black cottonwood, red osier dogwood, and a mix of different willows, surrounding each log habitat structure with a layer of new vegetation.

Volunteers Needed!

Dear Woodburn Families,

Hearing Screening Volunteers Needed

December 6 | Volunteers 7:45 AM-2:00 PM 

Woodburn is looking for adult volunteers to help with hearing/vision screenings. You must have valid volunteer clearance on file with the district (same as for field trips). We need 4 volunteers between 8:00 AM-2:00 PM (small breaks in-between, we may even finish earlier). Screenings will take place in the computer lab at Woodburn and instructions will be given. Volunteers should arrive at 7:45 AM for a brief training session. We’ll need help conducting the screening, watching over students while they are in line and retrieving students from classrooms. Please contact Carrie Davis in the Woodburn Office if you can volunteer:

(360) 833-5860

Thank you,

Brian Graham, Principal
