A Message from Dr. Stone

Hello Timberwolf Nation!


Happy Halloween! It's hard to believe it is almost November. We had a fantastic football season this year and we hope to continue the winning tradition with our basketball teams! They start their season next week. Hope to see you at some of the games!

Active Threat Response Training for Students, Monday November 5th

As we continue to expand our layered security plan to respond to potential threats, the safety of Katy ISD students remains our top priority. Due to the size of our student population and schools, preparing students and staff to respond to active events and threats is imperative. One of the trainings being provided to secondary students this year is called “Run, Hide, Fight.” Similar training is being used by school districts and law enforcement agencies nationwide.


Please download the document below for more details about the training that we will give the students.

Junior Achievement

  • Sign-up to become a volunteer for the 6th grade Junior Achievement (JA) Global Marketplace program today! This program introduces students to the global marketplace and the ways in which countries buy and sell from each other.


  • November 28th - Students will gain an understanding of producers and consumers as well as analyze the similarities and differences among countries and the effects of free enterprise.


  • Volunteers will be matched with a 6th grade teacher and will teach one of the hands-on, interactive sessions from the program to his/her class periods during the day.


  • JA provides training and all of the materials to make your day a success. All we need is your enthusiasm, life experience, and a willingness to teach children and let JA provide the rest!

“Leave a Legacy”

If you have ever seen our courtyard area after a storm, it is a muddy mess. The pavers will be installed in our courtyard to create a welcoming outdoor area for staff and students to enjoy. An order form is attached.

We need to sell a minimum of 550 bricks @ $75.00 each to cover the construction cost to just prepare the grounds and install the pavers.

Blank pavers will be installed to complete the area around the personalized pavers. This will allow personalized pavers to be added for many years to come. Our future goal is to also install 4 tables with seating, benches and eventually a cover.

As you can imagine – this is a huge project. Help us create a beautiful courtyard by purchasing a brick in honor or memory of someone.

You are welcome to send this order form to booster clubs, businesses, family members etc. We are accepting any financial donations for the purchase of tables, benches or the covering.

Thank you for your support!
