August Grade Level Orientation/Meet your Teacher dates and times

Important change and updates for 2014-15 – Save the Date(s) NOW!!

We are excited to announce that we are changing our Open House format for August in a new way for the upcoming school year. Please make note of these changes now so you can plan ahead in order to not miss this great opportunity to learn even MORE than ever about your child’s new classroom, teacher and grade level.


In order to provide personal attention to our families, as well as address the constraints of parking, each grade level will have assigned dates/times for each session


In August (see dates below) instead of just the Open House we will now have Grade Level Orientations along with Meet Your Teacher” sessions. These sessions will take place during the last week of summer prior to the start of school. Each session will feature a structured presentation given by the grade level teachers together as a team. This segment resembles the traditional “Back-to-School Night” format. Following the presentations, there will be “Meet Your Teacher” activities (seeing the classroom, drop off supplies, etc.) in your child’s classroom. These presentations will begin promptly at the time indicated below for your grade level.

Thursday, August 28th

Kindergarten Orientation  - All students and parents @ 9:30 a.m. meet in the cafeteria

Grade 1 Orientation- All students and parents @ 11:30 a.m. meet in the cafeteria

SHOPAROO - This year we have partnered with Shoparoo to leverage their hassle-free approach to raising thousands of dollars for schools. 7,000+ schools are already fundraising through Shoparoo and we see it as great opportunity for us to make a difference this year. 
With the free Shoparoo app, all you have to do to raise money for our school is take pictures of your grocery receipts with your phone! Shoparoo does not require any buying, selling, collecting, delivering, etcetera… and, it works no matter where you shop or what you buy!

Major consumer goods companies pay Shoparoo to turn the receipt data into anonymousmarket research reports. For example, these companies pay for information such as, "Families in the Phoenix area are 20% more likely than the rest of the country to shop for laundry detergent at a supercenter than a traditional grocery store." In addition, brands may provide sponsored offers such as, "Receipts containing purchases of Brand-X products earn double donations during September!" These bonus offers are in addition to the rewards earned for every receipt regardless of the products purchased. Participants are free to cross-out any data on their receipts if they don't feel comfortable submitting them. As long as the store name, date, total and most purchased items are legible, the receipt will still receive donation credit.

Our school receives a donation for every grocery receipt picture taken through the free Shoparoo app. There is no limit to how much we can raise with Shoparoo, so please download the app and start taking pictures today. Also, each of our first 20 participants will earn a guaranteed $1 donation for their first receipt!

A. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

B. Once it’s downloaded, select our school as your cause and take pictures of receipts!

C. Invite other parents and members of the community to participate in this simple fundraiser.

If you have any questions, you can contact Mr. Buchheit at buchhear@pwcs.edu or visit www.shoparoo.com.Thank you for your support!

NOKESVILLE December 11, 2013 -- T. Clay Wood Elementary School has been selected for the 2013 Best of Nokesville Award in the Schools category by the Nokesville Award Program.

Each year, the Nokesville Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category.

These exceptional companies help make the Nokesville area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2013 Nokesville Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Nokesville Award Program and data provided by third parties.
