This Week's Updates

Fall Festival

Wood PTA is hosting its 1st annual Fall Fest this Friday, October 20, 6-8 pm at Wood Middle School MPR.  This is sure to be a frightfully fun event with tons of activities for students, their families and friends, and staff!  Costumes are welcome, but masks and  weapons should be left at home. Lots of volunteers are needed to make it a success.  Sign-up for as many shifts as you'd like. High school students and adults are all welcome to volunteer.

Please visit the link below to volunteer. Shifts include Haunted Hallway decorating during the day 10/18 & 10/19, donating baked goods, set-up on 10/20, 3-6 pm, working the game booths and Snack Bar during the event, and helping to clean-up afterwards.  Volunteer here!

Thanks so much for your support!

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email Kelly Scott at
