Principal’s Message


Hello Wood families,

Happy Friday! Next week there won’t be any school as the teachers and administrators will be doing some professional learning on Monday and Tuesday followed by Thanksgiving break. We appreciate all the hard work and academic growth that students have shown early in the second quarter. When December arrives our school will be focusing on how students and staff can increase our positive contributions to the school community. I wish you all the best over the Thanksgiving break!

Message from your librarian

Greetings from the Library,

The IWMS library wrapped up the Scholastic Book Fair two weeks ago. With the help of parent volunteers, it was a success! Due to the purchases made by Wood families, students, and staff, the library was able to add over 60 books to the school's collection. Thank you for the support!

Ms. Meg Groat (she/her)
