Every October, schools across the county – and the world – celebrate International Walk and Roll to School Day (IWR2SD). The celebration is designed to encourage students, families and the school community to walk, bicycle, or use other non-motorized transportation to get to school.
This year, we are celebrating walking and rolling for a whole week in Alameda County! From October 19 – 23, students across the county can participate in International Walk & Roll Week (IW&RW) in their neighborhoods in a safe and physically distanced way. This is a great opportunity to make our streets safer, reduce traffic, improve air quality, and have fun exercising with our families!
Find out more about the celebration at the Alameda County Safe Routes to School website.
Let’s shop for an awesome cause!! Wood PTA’s online Scholastic Book Fair is open for business. September 28th through October 11th, shop thousands of wonderful titles for all ages.

Want to help out some families in need? Buy an extra book or two to donate. Simply leave in shopping bag outside school entrance and notify PTA. Or we can arrange a porch pick-up. Your donations will be greatly appreciated by Wood students who may not be able to afford new books right now.
