Back to School Night
It’s an evening where your child’s teachers will explain their goals for the class and for your child. The teachers will share information about what your child will be learning and their teaching style and methodology. Parents will learn how teachers grade and the requirements needed to get a good grade. Parents will find out about supplies their child will need to be successful that year and upcoming projects, events, or assignments.
Will C. Wood’s awards night is an evening dedicated to recognizing students for their outstanding academic achievement and improvement.
To make the Honor Roll, students must have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher (which is a “B” average). Students cannot have any D’s or F’s, nor any N’s or U’s either. If students have straight A’s, he/she will be awarded a Principal’s List certificate, our highest honor!
Honor Roll assemblies are held after the end of each quarter except for 4th quarter. Stay tuned and listen to the morning announcements for the next scheduled assembly.
The annual multicultural night is a celebration of the ethnic and cultural diversity of our community.

Students of all ages and the community are encouraged to perform during this family event and everyone is invited to enjoy the vast array of cuisine prepared that evening.
