College /Career Day 2018!

Our 13th Annual College/Career Day will be held on Friday, February 23, 2018.

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 College/Career Day this year. If you are interested, please confirm your place by completing the registration in the link below.

Peer Tutoring 17-18

We are continuing our Peer Tutoring Program in which 7th and 8th grade students who are doing well academically meet each week with students who are experiencing difficulties. Students in need of assistance will benefit academically by receiving help from a peer with whom they feel comfortable. The rules of confidentiality and mutual respect will be discussed and adhered to at all times by both tutors and tutees. The tutors have been trained and can help with homework, organization, studying, etc. If your child would like to be set up with a peer tutor, please have your child return the signed permission slip to the Counseling Office as soon as possible. Permission slip are available in the counseling office or are able to be printed from the links on the right on this page.


Sessions will be held after school starting this Fall. More info to come. Questions?  Contact Katie Donovan (


Please note that this is a space available program and spots are filled on a first come first serve basis.
