    8th Grade Dance

    Congratulations to our 8th Graders!  Our Senior Beavers graduate in June and we want them to celebrate their middle school accomplishments. The 8th Grade Dance will be on Friday, May 31, 2019, 7:00-9:00 pm. Let's send them off to high school with a fabulous night!  We need help from the wonderful Wood community with set-up & clean-up, donations of finger foods, desserts, & beverages, and chaperoning.  Sign-up here!

    Principal's Message

    principalDear Parents/Guardians:

    The staff and I watched students give hugs and restore relationships after Challenge Day.  The day emphasized how we are more alike than different and to be the change you want to see in the world.  Students created posters to remind us to be kind to one another to empower us all to create a learning environment where we all do truly belong.  It's great to head into state testing with this mindset.   Wood is a place where bullying, bigotry and self-degradation will not be accepted.  

    Transportation Considerations

    The safety of all our students is our priority!

    Drop off considerations:

    • For the safety of our students we will allow just one line of cars to enter the curve during drop off time, please contemplate to come earlier to avoid tardiness.
    • Pull up as FAR as you can to avoid disrupting the entire flow
    • Remind your children to be ready BEFORE you enter the drop off zone, taking too much time really impacts the flow of the traffic. If your child is not ready please go to the END of the line to avoid upsetting other parents.
    • To help ease the traffic congestion at the start  of the school day, we suggest arranging a drop off and pick location of your child in middle school within a short walking distance  (like Lum school)
    • Be considerate and safe don’t  drop off your child in the middle of the road  

    Pick up Considerations:

    • Be a role model for your child by following traffic and parking regulations. Be kind to our volunteers and other drivers.
    • Pay attention don’t stop the flow of the traffic waiting for your children
    • To help ease the flow of traffic and our disable students please do not park on blue or white zones during pick up time.
    • For the safety of your children please don’t allow them to enter the car in the middle of the road.
    • We suggest arranging a pick up location of your child in middle school within a short walking distance  (like Lum school) of Wood
    • Become a volunteer and help us to direct traffic ones a week or every day.
