Principal’s Message


Hello Wood families,

As we continue to work at filling sub positions, I wanted you all to know how much students have been staying focused on academic work these past few weeks. I’m impressed at the level of commitment and determination that students are displaying despite all the challenges we’re currently facing.

In addition to the resolve that students are showing, they’ve also been highly engaged in a door decorating contest to show their spirit here at Wood. Each advisory class chose a theme to decorate their classroom doors and we had school board members as well as district administrators make a visit to judge the winners of this fun, team-building contest. This is just one example of how we’re building a positive community here at Wood. Thanks to all the teachers and kids that put in time and effort to make this a great event and please check out the included pictures to see some of their hard work!

Upcoming Lockdown Drill

We will be having our lockdown drill on Wednesday, January 19th. Every school conducts two of these drills per year, and here at Wood we also build in a debrief discussion to help students process and feel safe.

End of the Term is Coming Up!

The end of the term is February 3rd, which means there’s only about two and a half weeks left of the first semester! We encourage you to be checking in with your student(s), having them walk you through their Google Classrooms to see what they’ve been working on, and getting on ParentVUE to check their progress. There’s plenty of time to finish strong!
