As a busy PTA, it is important to keep our school community informed of all the opportunities we provide. In addition to this great website, which is updated regularly, our PTA has a listserv we call Woodnet. Subscribing to Woodnet means you’ll receive news about PTA happenings directly to your email account.
More About Woodnet
Woodnet is an electronic mail network sponsored by the WAES PTA. Only parents with a child currently attending WAES or faculty/staff members may subscribe to Woodnet. Students may not subscribe to the network.
Once you join Woodnet, you will start receiving emails with [woodnet] at the beginning of the subject line. You’ll receive regular emails, such as the Wildcat Week Ahead, a weekly PTA newsletter with a summary of what is happening in the coming weeks. You’ll also receive our weekly Community Announcements email, with listings about community events, openings on sports teams, items for sale and so much more. You’ll also receive occasional emails from PTA representatives with more detailed information about upcoming events. It is important to us that your email inbox is not flooded with our listserv emails. That’s why you will only receive emails from the listserv that contain information that is pertinent to the entire school community. Woodnet is not a general discussion or communication forum.
To subscribe to Woodnet, please click the button below to send us an email. Please include your name along with the grades of your students at Wood Acres. By signing up for Woodnet, you agree to the use requirements and restrictions noted on this page and in the Woodnet Use Policy. Violation of these standards will result in permanent removal from the listserv on the second offense.
To unsubscribe from Woodnet, send a blank email message to email@example.com.
As a service to our school community, we compile a weekly classified ad newsletter that is sent to our Woodnet subscribers. This is a great forum to request referrals for service providers, look for sports teams with openings for your child, sell items or advertise your business or non-PTA event.
Posting your ad is simple. Write a brief description, including your contact info, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your ad will appear in the next weekly classified listing.
After you join, you can post announcements to either Woodnet or Community Announcements. This chart will help you distinguish which email address to use for your message:
- PTA-sponsored event
- WAES staff announcements and updates
- Educational topics impacting an entire grade or school
- Time-sensitive community announcement (e.g. lost pet)
- Always include your contact info
- Ad to organize a sports team
- Announce a yard sale
- Requests/ referrals for tutors, nannies, skilled labor
- Advertise your business or non-PTA event
- Always include your contact info
