From the long-standing tradition of The Nutcracker to the successful Read & Dream program, these PTA sponsored programs add to the richness and quality of school life for our students. These programs NEED VOLUNTEERS to continue to run successfully. Please consider how you can help and sign up to volunteer here.

If you have ideas for a new program at Strandwood, please let us know. All the beloved programs at Strandwood were started due to an enthusiastic parent who got the ball rolling!

Upcoming dates to know

Green team / Planet Protectors

We are a group of dedicated parents and teachers who would like to take our school to the next level of environmental consciousness and responsibility. The Strandwood Green Team is committed to making positive environmental changes in our school, which we hope will filter out to our community and our daily lives. The team will continuously review operations and explore new ways to improve Strandwood’s daily routine and reduce waste and utility consumption. Together we will forge a path to reduce our carbon footprint and preserve our precious resources for years to come.

Coordinators: Jenifer Osterholt, Tracie Watanabe


Nearly 450 children participated this year in The Nutcracker. Divided into three different performances, each student in grades kindergarten, first, and second all perform a class dance.
