Dear Friends of the Woodville School,

It has been a very busy summer at the Woodville School.  As you may have seen driving on Route 17, our parking lot is finished. We thank Vulcan Materials for donating stone and concrete and Mike Goins, friend of Woodville, for repairing the ditch along Route 17. We are now working on the building interior. The photo below shows the new parking lot with our partners at Vulcan Materials whose generous donation helped make this project possible.

The Cook Foundation awarded the school a matching grant which will double your donations up to $75,000.  Please be as generous as you can to help us meet this $75,000 goal. The Yorktown Rotary Club is partnering with the Woodville School for the restoration of the large classroom.  Rotarians are donating their labor for painting, carpentry and finishing work. Thank you to Robert Thompson for donating the paint needed for the interior. Woodville Rosenwald School Foundation board member, James Newton, a licensed contractor, has already put in many hours repairing the floor and restoring the original bead board on the classroom walls, and repairing the ceiling. We are so grateful for all of the members of our community who have contributed funds, materials, labor and expertise to the Woodville School.

Along with the restoration of the historic building, the Foundation has begun planning for the historical interpretation of the School.  The Descendant Project Public Engagement Planning Committee will hold its first public event on September 24.
