Hello Woodland families! My name is Libby Gerds (mom of Louie in C1 and George in T2) and I have the pleasure of serving on the Woodland Board as the Treasurer/Chair of the Finance Committee. The Finance Committee spends most of our time overseeing Woodland's operating budget and reporting back to the Board on the financial health of the school. We work closely with the Head of School, the Chief Financial Officer and an outside accountant, so this job is actually remarkably easy! In addition to watching the budget and making adjustments as the year goes on, we also administer Woodland's tuition assistance program. Thanks to the support from all of you at the annual auction and a grant award, we are happy to have the resources to support more than a dozen families with tuition assistance for this school year. We also maintain a "Helping Hands Fund" to provide emergency tuition assistance to families who may have a job loss, medical issue, or other sudden need for help. Thanks so much for your support at the annual auction, your donations allow Woodland to support our community in such and important and tangible way each year.
All of us on the Board of Directors are looking forward to greeting you and your families at the Welcome Picnic on Friday, August 31 at 4:30 pm at Olin Park.
We look forward to seeing you there!
