Woodlands students make principal stew

Students at Woodlands Elementary School got to make Principal Stew this week – literally!

Students met their Penny War Challenge for their United Way goal of $1,500 by raising $1,569.54. As an incentive this year, the class that brought the most money in pounds got to make Principal Stew. Casey VanHoesen’s kindergarten class won the challenge.

Each student in that class brought a canned good to open and pour over Principal Tim Williams’ head! VanHoesen is shown in the picture pouring pork and beans over his head with student Alex Colwell assisting.

“I am very proud of our students for reaching their United Way goal for the second consecutive year,” said Principal Tim Williams. “Woodlands loves to help other people, and the United Way drive is a perfect opportunity. Students really rallied around the opportunity to make Principal Stew, and I think students and staff alike had equal amounts of fun whether they were pouring gross stuff on me or watching it happen. We combined the event with a canned food drive, and we were able to give 225 food items to the New Emergency Resource Agency.”
