Walk Around School Day!
T. Clay Wood will again be participating in International Walk to School Day on October 7, 2015 by walking around our school before schools starts. WTSD promotes walking instead of driving because it keeps the environment clean, it promotes safety, it benefits the community, It is healthy, and it is fun! The students at T. Clay Wood can certainly enjoy the benefits of walking before school because it is healthy and it is fun!  All TCW students - bus riders, car riders, SACC students - will walk around the school when they get to school on the morning of October 7th. If you would like to help volunteer, please email Ms. Probus at probuscm@pwcs.edu.
