8th Grade High School Planning
The counselors have been meeting with 8th grade students to talk about high school 4 year planning and the the A-G college eligibility requirements. A lot of information about high school courses in the San Ramon Unified School District (including 4 year plans, A-G requirements, and detailed descriptions about high school courses) can be viewed in the link below.
College and Career Day 2015
We are planning Charlotte Wood’s 10th Annual Career Day which will be held on Friday, February 20, 2015.
Charlotte Wood Middle School feels that career exploration and awareness is a valuable tool in helping students uncover the possibilities that await them in high school, college and beyond. Studies show that at-risk students who are involved in career exploration and awareness activities at the middle school level are more likely to establish an effective program plan of study for high school, thus better preparing them for their future career selections. Your involvement in the lives of our students, even if for a small amount of time, will make a difference in at least one student’s life.
Please take a moment and consider whether you or someone you know would like to participate in Career Day this year. If you are interested confirm your place by completing registration in the link below.

Conferences Available to Students
Youth-2-Youth is a conference for ALL middle school students (boys and girls). This is the 21st year that the San Ramon Valley has been home to the Youth to Youth Conference.
This AMAZING conference is an opportunity for middle school teens to spend the day with high school leaders who believe in themselves and making healthy choices and decisions such as being drug, alcohol, and tobacco free. But this conference is about so much more than drug and alcohol prevention, it's about leadership, self-confidence and empowering young people to make positive choices that impact their future.
This fun filled all day event, consists of games, team building activities, inspirational speakers, workshops, small groups sessions, and so much more all focusing on helping teens to make positive choices in their lives. The days ends with an awesome DJ and dance. To see a video of this year’s keynote speaker and to access the registration page, please click here -http://tinyurl.com/y2y2015. The registration link is toward the bottom of the page.
She’s All That! is a one-day conference for 5th to 8th grade girls and their parents. It includes keynote speakers, tote bags, an expo, lunch and numerous workshops for girls and parents to choose from. She’s All That! is an exciting and distinctive conference that past participants have said should be mandatory for all middle-school aged girls. "I think it's great that the girls are getting this attention and information - that there are people in the community who care enough about the girls to do this for them" was the feedback from one parent last year. Another mentioned that she and her daughter waited a year to participate and it was "everything I could have hoped for."
This special conference includes an inspirational keynote presentation and a choice of three of the available workshops for girls. Our popular “Live Your Dream!” Expo will include numerous informational exhibits again this year. The adult workshops have been expanded and new ones are being offered.
