    Student safety is our number one priority. The design of our school makes it challenging for us to monitor guests as they arrive in our building. In an effort to better monitor visitors and appropriately welcome them, we will be asking people to use the doors on the west side of the building after 9:30 in the morning. Starting on Monday, September 25th, the doors on the east side of the building will be locked at 9:30. The doors on the Boones Ferry Primary School side will remain unlocked during the school day. All other doors will be locked and secured. We ask all visitors to please check into the main office upon arrival. We have a new visitor sign in system that we will ask you to use and wear your visitor’s badge during your visit.  We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we work to keep Wood Middle School a safe place.



    Fall Fundraiser:

    Our annual Wood Fundraiser started last week. Through the support of friends, families, and neighbors we are able to better support student's activities, field trips, sports teams and clubs here at Wood. This year's fundraiser is a bit different. Supporters make individual donations to the school instead of buying cookie dough or magazines. Each student should have brought a packet home yesterday. If your child did not receive a packet and wishes to participate, there are extra packets in the main office. This fundraiser will culminate with a fun "Wipeout prize event" to be held after the school day. Date to be determined. It is guaranteed to be something students will want the opportunity to participate in.  Thank you in advance for your support.

     

    Homework club starts this Thursday. We will have several teachers available to provide support with homework. Students will meet on the SW porch by Mr. Daigle’s room at 3:50. HWC will end at 5:10. The activity busses depart at 5:15.

     

    6th Grade Girls Night Out is this Friday, the 22nd from 6-9pm.  This is a free event hosted by the PTSA for ALL 6th grade girls.  It’s a time for them to come hang out with new friends and have a ton of fun in their new school.  There will be food, games, crafts, a photobooth and the high school dance team will have a surprise for everyone!  Encourage your daughter to come and have a great time!  If you would like to help out with this event, please check out our SignUp Genius at this link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0c49aaac2ca6fb6-2017

    La seguridad de los estudiantes es nuestra prioridad número uno. El diseño de nuestra escuela hace que sea un reto para nosotros monitorear a los invitados cuando llegan a nuestro edificio. En un esfuerzo por monitorear mejor a los visitantes y darles la bienvenida apropiadamente, pediremos a las personas que usen las puertas en el lado oeste del edificio después de las 9:30 de la mañana.Las puertas en el lado este del edificio serán cerradas a las 9:30. Las puertas del lado de la Escuela Primaria Boones Ferry permanecerán desbloqueadas durante el día escolar. Todas las demás puertas estarán bloqueadas y aseguradas. Pedimos a todos los visitantes que se registren en la oficina principal a su llegada. Tenemos un nuevo sistema de acceso para visitantes le pedimos que lo use y use la tarjeta de visitante durante su visita. Agradecemos su cooperación y comprensión mientras trabajamos para mantener a Wood Middle School un lugar seguro.

     

    Recaudación de fondos de otoño:
    Nuestra recaudación de fondos anual de Wood comenzó la semana pasada. Con el apoyo de amigos, familias y vecinos podemos apoyar mejor las actividades de los estudiantes, excursiones, equipos deportivos y clubes aquí en Wood.La recaudación de fondos de este año es un poco diferente. Los partidarios hacen donaciones individuales a la escuela en lugar de comprar masa para galletas o revistas. Cada estudiante debería haber traído un paquete a casa ayer. Si su hijo no recibió un paquete y desea participar, hay paquetes adicionales en la oficina principal. Este evento de recaudación de fondos culminará con un divertido "evento de premios Wipeout" que se llevará a cabo después del día escolar. Fecha a determinar. Se garantiza que es un evento en el cual los estudiantes deseen participar. Gracias de antemano por su apoyo.

    Wood Middle School

     

    “Bettering the learning of ourselves and others”

     

    September 1-8

    As a new member of the Wood Middle School Community I was so pleased with our first week of school. There was a feeling that this is a vibrant learning environment while also feeling calm and productive. While introducing ourselves to the students this week we emphasized with them their leadership potential and ability to make a positive statement about our school and our community. We have the greatest confidence in this group of young people to be their best selves! I am looking forward to seeing their leadership in action!

     

    We are focused on making Wood Middle School a great place for all. Join us in attaining these tenets.

    Work to grow as learners

    Work to grow as a community

    Work to improve the world around us

    Strive to be the best version of our self

     

    Transportation:  Bus Routes can be found on our District Site under community, but also now on our school website.  First Student, the bus company for West Linn-Wilsonville School District has instituted this new system.  Through our school’s “Familylink” you can see which stop your child’s bus is scheduled to pick up and drop off at.  While many stops and routes remain the same, several have changed to optimize efficiency. To view up-to-date routes, including snow routes, visit the District's website at https://www.wlwv.k12.or.us/buses. Bus routes can always be found under the District website's 'Community' tab.

     

    If this is your first time using Family Link, enter your email address as the login name and use the forgot password link.  You will be emailed a link that will allow you to assign your own password.  If you don’t get the link in your email, or you are not the primary contact for your children, contact the school office.  You might also try other email addresses that you suspect the school may have on file.  

     

    Once you had logged onto Family Link, click on the bus Information under student records on the left.  If you need to make changes, click the Request a Change Button and make appropriate changes.  

     

    Technology agreements: Students will be bringing home the district technology agreement. Please ask your student for it and return the signed copy to school.

     

    Student appointments: We understand students may need to leave for appointments some days. We do our best to maintain a positive and productive learning environment and avoid calling classrooms during instruction. If your child needs to leave during the day please plan ahead and send a note.

     

    To ensure a safe, productive and positive learning environment we are requiring all students to use their lockers this year. This will provide a safe and secure place for students to keep their personal belongings during the day. This include cell phones and other electronic devices. Students need to keep them put away and secure during the day. Cell phone use during lunch for text communication, and music is allowed with the use of head phones or earbuds. Students are to avoid social media while at school. Thank you in advance for your support in this matter.

     

    Cross Country practice starts next week. Students may still sign up. They need to have a health physical on file to begin practice. With the temperature and air quality conditions expected to be a challenge next week,  cross country practice may be held indoors for a few days. The activity bus will be available.

     

    The first cross country practice of the season will be next Tuesday after school. Practices will start at 3:55 in the first gym. We have structured all practices next week with the current forecast in mind. Please bring shorts, a water bottle and a good pair of running shoes. There will be a parent meeting at the end of practice (5:00) on Thursday.  

     

    We appreciate it when students arrive after school after 8:45 in the morning. There is not supervision for students who arrive before that time.

     

    Mark you calendar:

    September 14 6:30 PM Back to School night for seventh and eighth grade parents

    Dear Wood Famliies,

     

    It was such a joy having all of the teachers back this week. As a staff, we are working with intention to continue to build a middle school model that supports all learners and helps them become the best version of themself. It is going to be a great school year!

     

    Thank you sixth grade families who were able to attend our Sneak Peek on Wednesday. It was wonderful having you here. We are looking forward to a great year together. If you were unable to attend this event, please check your mailbox for a welcome packet.

     

    The first day for sixth graders is Tuesday August 29th. School starts at 9:15.

     

    All students attend school Wednesday August 30th.

     

    Student schedules will be released to be viewed through family link today, Friday afternoon.  Building student schedules is a complex process. We have worked hard to make sure we got it  right to ensure a great start for all students. With this in mind we will only be making changes to schedules where there is a mistake. Unfortunately we will not be honoring schedule change requests that are for individual preferences, including teacher preferences.

     

    The West Linn Wilsonville School District Code of Conduct can be found on the WLWV school district website. https://www.wlwv.k12.or.us/.

     

    School supply lists can be found on our school website. If your family is in need of assistance obtaining school supplies please contact Ms. Block our school counselor.

     

    Transportation:  Bus Routes can be found on our District Site under community, but also now on our school website.  First Student, the bus company for West Linn-Wilsonville School District has instituted this new system.  Through our school’s “Familylink” you can see which stop your child’s bus is scheduled to pick up and drop off at.  With our new boundaries and the possibilities that buses going to both middle schools may have stops near each other, it is extra important that students know their bus number and get on the correct bus.

     

    If this is your first time using Familylink, enter your email address as the login name and use the forgot password link.  You will be emailed a link that will allow you to assign your own password.  If you don’t get the link in your email, or you are not the primary contact for your children, contact the school office.  You might also try other email addresses that you suspect the school may have on file.  

     

    Once you had logged onto Familylink, click on the Bus Information under Student Records on the left.  If you need to make changes, click the Request a Change Button and make appropriate changes.  

     

    Looking forward to a great year together.

    Dear Wood Families,

     

    We are happy to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year.  It is an exciting time to be a member of the Inza Wood Middle School Community. We are opening our doors this fall with a new look, many new faces and a smaller student body. We are confident that Wood Middle School will be a place where each student, staff member, parent volunteer and community member contributes to “bettering the learning of their self and others”.  We have focused our work this summer on what we call the “Wood Way”.  Here are our four tenets:

     

            At Wood we:

    Work to grow as learners

    Work to grow as a community

    Work to improve the world around us

    Strive to be the best version of our self

     

    We ask you to join us and embrace these tenets as a way of thinking about learning, school involvement and in the decisions we make.  

     

    In addition to many amazing returning staff members, I am pleased to introduce our new to Wood, staff members. Please join me in welcoming them to our team!

     

    Assistant Principal : Joey King joins us from the Hillsboro School District where he has most recently been a school counselor.

     

    Counselor: Erin Block joins us from the east coast where she has finished her graduate studies and brings community-based experiences working with adolescents and families.

     

    Math Teacher: Rob Arndt has most recently taught Math in the Salem-Keizer School District and joins us a teacher and community member.

     

    August 29th is the first day for 6th grade students. Wood student Ambassadors will help facilitate this day. Each sixth grader will participate in each class, some small group activities and an assembly. Students may purchase lunch or bring their own.

     

    August 30th: ALL students return to school.

     

    School Day: Students attend school from 9:15 to 3:45 each day. When students arrive they need to enter the building in supervised areas. We appreciate it that students arrive after 8:45 in the morning. We provide supervision for students at that time.

     

    Lockers: Each student will be assigned their own locker. For safety and security reasons, all students will be expected to keep their backpacks in their lockers during the school day. We appreciate your support in this matter. Additionally, students are responsible for keeping their locks throughout the year. Students who have misplaced or lost a lock will need to purchase a replacement lock.

     

    In building student schedules we have done our best to consider individual student needs while thoughtfully crafting the complexities of a middle school schedule. We will fix mistakes on schedules. There are limitations for other schedule change requests. Each teacher will work with your child to make this a great year! Schedules will be available on Family Link. You can access this through the school website. To access family link use the primary email address you have provided to the school. First time users, use the forgot password link to have a password sent to the email we have on file. We will have printed copies available on the first day of school as well.

     

    Daily Schedule: All students will go to each of their six classes each day of the week. Our new schedule will be in the student planner.

     

    Meals: Breakfast is served after 8:50 in the morning for $1.95 and lunch can be purchased for $3.45. Families may apply for free or reduced rates for breakfast and lunch. Forms need to be completed at the beginning of each school year. They are included in this packet. Several of our lunches occur after noon. Teachers will talk with students about bringing a healthy morning snack to one of their morning classes.


    Bus Routes: Updated bus routes can be found on the school district web-site: www.wlwv.k12.or.us. Students who ride their bikes or skateboards need to secure them with a lock in the designated areas.

     

    School Supply lists can be found on our school website www.iwms.wlwv.k12.or.us. I encourage families needing support with school supplies to please reach out to our school counselor Erin Block.
