Teacher Appreciation Lunch, December 19

Dear Wood Community,

It is time once again to appreciate the wonderful Wood teachers and staff with our second appreciation lunch of the year on Wednesday December 19th in Wood’s Teachers’ Lounge.

We will have a holiday themed lunch so please bring your favorite holiday item. PTA will provide drinks and paper products.  Please sign up here to bring something and you can also volunteer to help with set-up, clean up, etc.

Please make sure to bring your items to the teachers’ lounge by 10am the morning of Dec 19th. If you have any questions, please contact Sahru Keiser at sahruc@gmail.com.

Thank you so much for helping make this a wonderful and delicious event!

STEAM Night, December 19

Wood families are invited to come to STEAM Night next Wednesday, December 19, 5:30-7:00 pm in the MPR. Check out your  student’s work, and be prepared to Engage, Prepare, Inspire, Create!

Last trimester the 8th grade worked on an integrated project about time, and the manifestations of time. This sprang from the science curriculum in which students learned about the causes of days, months, years, seasons. They have produced 2019 calendars featuring major events from science (Moon phases, equinoxes, solstices), history (historical events), and mathematics (pi day, etc). Each month features artwork produced by our 8th grade students!

The calendars will be on sale during STEAM Night! Make sure to buy one for yourself and some to give to family and friends – they make the perfect gift!
