Drivers Ed

It's not too late to register for the Drivers Education Class beginning on Monday, November 12th.  There needs to be 15 students to have the class and we are short. Applications can be found on our website or in the Business Office, room 245.  Please drop off completed applications to room 245 by Friday, November 9th.

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.    Come during your lunch period, and bring your lunch with you – Mr. Velten promises to not eat any of it, especially those tasty French fries!  Yum!
