Please join me in welcoming our new secretary, Ms. Cortez, to Wood Gormley. If your child is absent, please make sure you call the office (467-4800) or email Ms. Cortez at to ensure that we accurately record your child’s attendance. 

Boys’ Basketball

Several of our parents have volunteered to coach our boys’ basketball team. Tryout information will be available soon.

Cheer Tryouts

Cheer Tryouts will begin on November 18 for girls and boys in grades 4 through 6. Students should eat lunch first and then meet in the lobby at their designated times. 

Good Neighbors

One of our neighbors who lives behind the school has struggled to leave her house on several occasions due to cars blocking her exit. Please do not park directly in front of the back exterior gym doors. 

Library Hours

We have an amazing book collection curated by our librarians. Students, accompanied by a parent/guardian, are encouraged to visit our library after school to browse and check out books. The library is open until 4:00 pm, Mondays through Thursdays.


Progress Reports

Quarter 2 (Q2) Progress Reports will be distributed to students on Friday, November 15. If you have questions regarding your child’s grades, please contact your child’s teacher. 


Parents: please make sure that you pull over to the curb before allowing your child to exit your vehicle. Extra parking is available in the lot adjacent to the church and on the corner of Webber and Buena Vista. We all need to work together to ensure the safety of our children and one of the easiest steps you can take is to plan to arrive no later than 7:45 am.

In addition, please make sure that you are sending your child to school in layers. We send students outside for recess unless the temperature is below 25 degrees or it is raining or snowing. Warm gloves and a hat will help your child play comfortably outside.
