To the Parents/Guardians of Wood 8th Grade Students:


Please review these 8th grade activities, requirements and expectations for year-end events.

  • Friday, June 2 from 7 to 10 PM. - Eighth Grade Dance at Wood. Students must enter dance by 7:30PM. Chaperones will have to speak to a parent if any student want to leave before 10PM (free)
  • Tuesday, June 6 at 8:20 AM- Promotion rehearsal at The College of Alameda’s gym (students will meet at gym at the College of Alameda and be dismissed from the college at 12:30. The College of Alameda is located at 555 Ralph Appezzato Memorial Pkwy, Alameda, CA 94501 )

  • Thursday, June 8 at 10:00AM- Promotion Ceremony at The College of Alameda!

Behavior Expectations for Picnic, Dance, and Promotion Ceremony

  • The dance and picnic are for promoting 8th grade Wood students only.
  • Dress code for the dance and promotion: clothing for both formal events should be appropriate. Most students will dress “nicely”.
    • No hats or sagging pants, no strapless, halter-top, or spaghetti strap dresses (you need to bring a shawl to cover shoulders). We recommend practicing walking in high heels, particularly climbing stairs.

Details for the Promotional Ceremony

  • Please do not bring balloons or other items that may obstruct the views of other audience members, or floral arrangements that others may be allergic to.

Every student will receive 8 tickets for promotion. We ask that if students don’t need all 8 tickets, they hand them back to staff at the time of distribution.


We look forward to a happy and joyous celebration of your son or daughter’s middle school years! If you have any questions, please contact the school.
