WELCOME

2022 Fall Mums sale

Get ready for fall by supporting Earle B Wood’s PTA 7th Mum Sale. Our mums come from a local Maryland wholesaler, Catoctin Mountain Growers. They are all selected to be at optimal blooming time, meaning they will look great on your porch!


​We will be taking online orders until Friday, September 9th. Once again, we are offering a $5 contact-less delivery on Friday, September 23rd. Mum pick-up will be Saturday, September 24th, from 8 AM- 11 AM. Only online orders will be accepted this year. For questions email: woodmumsale@gmail.com​

August 21, 2022, noon - 4pm

Rockville Day is on August 21, noon - 4pm. This back-to-school community event focuses on school spirit, health, and wellness. The entire Rockville cluster is invited! Rockville Day will feature 3 main areas:

  • Carnival Corner, with rides and games ($5 per family or $2 per unaccompanied Middle/High School student)

  • PTA Way, a community outreach area with the local businesses and PTAs

  • Health and Wellness Circle, with organizations such as MADD (Mothers against Drunk Driving) and BPHN (Black Physicians Healthcare Network), and many more.

There will be several local favorite food truck options or $6 RHS Booster Club Meal Deals (hot dog or hamburger with chips and a drink). Hope to see you there!

Welcome Back!

I am Michelle Dingle, I will be your PTA president for the year and I have an 8th grader at Wood. The PTA Vice President is Katherine Fiske, who has a 7th grader. Katherine and I are looking forward to supporting both the Wood families and staff. The rest of the Board (listed below) have already been working on supporting the Wood community by providing ample communication and support, as well as fundraising opportunities. In addition, we are focusing on providing more SSL hour opportunities. If you are wondering what you can do to support the PTA and by extension, your community, we ask that you join the PTA as well as support our fundraisers. Our fundraising can close the gap between county funding and actual cost of equipment/materials, staff support/appreciation, field trip support, PTA-sponsored events for the students, and so much more. If you have any questions, please email, ebwoodpta@gmail.com with a keyword such as, “6th grade”, “SSL”, etc, and the appropriate chair member will get back to you. We look forward to meeting you!
