Toys for Tots

Woodlake Elementary School was proud to serve as an official Toys for Tots drop off Location this holiday season. The children graciously donated many toys to be given to less fortunate children in the local community in the effort to make their day. During Friday’s morning meeting Sergeant Lewis and Sergeant Hayes of the United States Marine Corps joined our faculty and students to collect the toys and thank them for their acts of kindness. During this holiday season the Woodlake Family realizes how important it is for each and every child to have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.
