Thank you WBE Parents, Teachers & Staff for a fantastic Mane Bash
We had a terrific turnout with more than 160 guests joining us for dinner, the auction and a fun night with music by Circuit Thursday.
It was another great year for fundraising at Woodbrook. We are still working on final numbers, but we definitely exceeded our goal of $15,000. We are fortunate to have so many people in the Woodbrook community who helped make this a great evening and raised funds for our school. This event cannot happen without the support of so many who provide their time and effort over the last several months.
Special thanks to Dennis & Jessie Mock for their generosity with their personal donations for the evening as well as countless hours soliciting and securing donations for the Mane Bash. Also, many thanks to Tammy Egger and Celebrity Cruises for donating the 7-Night Carribean Cruise.
Thank you to the generosity of all of those who attended, bid on items and won. Our spirited and generous WBE community really came through to help our school, including a special fund created at the event for newly refurbished soccer goals on the playground field. In addition to supporting Woodbrook during the auction, families and staff raised funds to benefit the many needs of Indianapolis Public School 56.
Note: All silent auction bidders have been notified if they had the winning bid.

T-shirts, March Social Gathering, Fifth Grade Graduation, End of the Year Celebration
Our 5th graders have worked so hard during their elementary years and shared so many memories together, but they are looking forward to moving on to the next level of their education and growth in 6th grade. We would like to celebrate their educational accomplishments, experiences, friendship and fun with some great events towards the end of the school year.
- First, we thought it would be fun to offer a Class of 2024 t-shirt for sale with the names of all of the Woodbrook 5th Graders on the back.
- Second, we are planning an off-site event at Laser Flash in Carmel for the kids to get together outside of the school setting to socialize and have some fun! Forms will be coming home with your student soon or you can PRINT A FORM HERE.
