VOLUTEERS EEDED‌. To help at the Market Day sale this Saturday December 15th at Meadowview School.

Volunteers are needed to help pack and distribute orders, beginning at 7:45 am, until approximately 11:30 am. Refreshments will be provided, and children are welcome, too! By giving a little bit of time this Saturday, you are helping Woodview earn its share of D46's Market Day income this year. It's one of our most important fundraisers, and we couldn't participate, if not for parent volunteers! Please contact Cheryl Wilgen at 630-291-4509 or Megan Wright at 847-757-7842 for more information.

Thank you!


Reminder‌.. We will be assembling boxes for the Holiday Cookie Exchange for the Woodview staff this Monday, December 17th.

A heartfelt "thank you" goes out to: Randy Duchane, Traci Parker, Brandi Kornit, and Krista Bean for their work on the Lip Sync Show plans. Brandi Kornit and Margarett Blada for chairing the Spirit Wear sale this fall! Families who purchased Spirit Wear this fall. Your purchase supports the PTO and Woodview School! Diana Spicer for coordinating this year’s Penguin Patch! Also to the many volunteers that helped students make their special purchases during their lunch hour this week!

Attention, your attention, please! The Box Tops contest ending date has been EXTENDED by popular demand! The contest will now end AFTER winter break so you can have a chance to collect even MORE Box Tops from family members and friends over the holidays. The contest will now end on Friday, January 11th!! Winners will be announced the following week! Please keep bringing in your trimmed Box Tops and try to help your homeroom win. Prizes for 1st and 2nd place homeroom winners will be awarded, plus the 1st place winner will get to display the TROPHY!! Students, keep your eyes on WBC for the Box Tops Lady to give contest updates and prize information! Holiday meals and parties often come with Box Tops, so please tell everyone you have ever met (well, almost everyone!) that you will gladly take their Box Tops during the holiday gatherings to help Woodview School.

Good luck to all! Any questions please contact Virginia Fitzgerald at

Flu Season and School To help keep flu outbreaks to a minimum, we are asking that all students and families follow these simple steps: 1. PLEASE keep sick children home from school until they are fever-free for 24 hours without such as Tylenol or Ibuprofen. (fever = 99.5 degrees or above) and their cough is gone!


2. Teach your children to COVER THEIR COUGHS and wash hands often. Hand sanitizers are also


3. The CDC recommends that all school-age children receive flu vaccinations. Seasonal flu vaccines are available now! 4. Prepare in advance. Have alternative childcare available if you cannot stay home or pick up your sick child at school. SICK students cannot remain at school! 5. PLEASE report your child’s absence to school and tell us the symptoms. (Just saying “sick” doesn’t help us track illnesses) 6. Make sure we have current phone numbers to reach you and your emergency contacts.

VOLUTEERS EEDED To help at the next Market Day sale Saturday December 15th. Market Day is a fundraiser that we share with the other District 46 elementary schools. Each elementary school takes a turn supplying volunteers to help unload the delivery truck and organize the orders for pick up. The profits from each monthly sale are split between the five elementary schools. Woodview's turn to volunteer is Saturday, December 15.

Clip & save Tyson Project A+ labels. Turn in the labels to school. Your school redeems them for cash. Each label is worth $.26.

Fifteen adult volunteers are needed to help unload the truck, sort orders and retrieve orders. Volunteers are needed at Meadowview school from 7:45 am to 9:30 am. Please consider helping even if you need to arrive late or leave early. Spouses are welcome, and school-aged children can help too! Donuts, bagels, coffee and juice will be provided. Please email or if you can help with this important PTO fundraiser.

Thank you!

Chef Tony says, “Chilly winter weather is here— Market Day has some delicious dinner options that will warm you from the inside!”

Here is another way to earn money for Woodview. Simply clip the Box Tops from your favorite General Mills products and send them to school with your child!

Did you know that Woodview collects Campbell’s soup labels? The labels are worth points and must have the UPC code in order to be used. The points can be redeemed for books, gym equipment, and other items for our school. Each teacher has a box in the classroom to collect labels and box tops!
