Need help in ELA or with your writing for any of your subjects?  

Good news:  Mr. Velten, former English teacher here at Wood, will be here today to give you the help you need!  Stop by the Learning Commons at your lunch period to get some writing or ELA assistance.

Bring that paper or essay in, and we’ll help you to improve your sentences, make your thesis more clear, and brush up those spelling and punctuation problems!  Or maybe you’d like some help with that college essay.

Again, for help with ELA or writing in any of your subjects, stop by the Learning Commons today and see Mr. Velten.

Looking for a job? Ann's Choice will be in the cafeteria tomorrow to speak with students about job opportunities. Stop by their table.
