Gearing up for a big weekend at Woodvale!

We cannot stop talking about the new playground because we are SO EXCITED!

Our Woodvale kids have worked so hard over the past few years raising money for this playground, and we can’t wait until they get a chance to play on it!  We are beyond blessed to have the Kiwanis of Lafayette assist us with funding as well as with labor on this upcoming weekend.

Friday afternoon, volunteers will be on campus getting our playground ready for the big overhaul.  And Saturday we will have 25 Kiwanis of Lafayette members along with our PTC Spruce Up Crew on campus.  The goal of the day is to get our playground ready for WES students and to make our campus look beautiful for our Woodvale families.  If you have signed up to donate items for the volunteers, thank you!  Please drop off your items Saturday morning at 8am at the bus loop off Doucet Road.  And if you are interested in getting your hands dirty in the gardens, we will be waiting to meet you at 8am. Saturday.

Installation Progress

Kincade is moving right along with our playground install. Remember our spruce up day on Saturday July 29. That’s this Saturday beginning at 8am!

Playground Equipment Has Arrived.

Our new playground equipment has finally arrived!  The installation contractor began work today on our 2 new play areas.  Work will continue for the next 2 to 3 days and will culminate with our community volunteer group from Kiwanis of Lafayette working on this Saturday to finish the spruce up.  Stay tuned for more updates and be sure to support the Kiwanis of Lafayette at the 66th Annual Kiwanis High School Football Jamboree.  The Jamboree serves as the primary fundraiser for the Kiwanis of Lafayette, allowing them to support worthwhile projects throughout our community.  The Jamboree will take place on August 24 and 25 at Cajun Field.  Check back here for more information as it becomes available and visit the Kiwanis of Lafayette website found here.  Let’s go out to support this tremendous group!  And remember to tell them you appreciate all they do for our community, especially Woodvale Elementary School!

Playground Surface Arrives!

The surface material for our new playground equipment arrived Friday morning!  Drivers offloaded two trailer loads of certified playground safety fiber to be installed beneath our two new play structure areas.  On Monday morning, a crew from Kincade Recreation will begin installing our new equipment.  Over the past several years, our students raised over half of the funds needed for this project through their participation in our annual Eagle Fun Run event.  And in March of 2017, we were presented with a check for $25,000 from the Kiwanis of Lafayette to enable us to purchase our equipment.  Check out their post about the donation here on the Kiwanis of Lafayette website.  Also, the Kiwanis of Lafayette will be conducting a Volunteer Spruce-Up Day on Saturday, July 29 at our playground.  Take a look at that event here for more information.  And please consider joining us!

Woodvale PTC is extremely grateful for the generous support we continue to receive from our community.  Check out our Eagle Fun Run page here for a list of our 2017 sponsors.  If you happen to know a Kiwanis of Lafayette member, please let them know that you appreciate their generous support of our students!
