A Message from Dr. Stone

Good evening!


So far it has been a great week at the Creek! It's hard to believe that it is the end of the 2nd six weeks on Friday. The year is flying by fast. Make sure you send good vibes to the Astros tonight. Surely, they have to win at least one game at home!


GO ASTROS!


Regards,


Dr. Melinda Stone

Volunteer for Junior Achievement

We are fortunate enough to be a part of a community that sees the value in our youth and the difference we can make by just investing our time. Here at WoodCreek JH, we want the community around us to know they have our support.


On Wednesday, November 20th, we will have the 6th grade JA Global Marketplace program. This program requires community volunteers to lead pre-planned sessions that help to educate and inspire young people to understand their role in the global economy and be ready for the workforce. The event will take place from 8:40 a.m. to 3:55 p.m.

A JA representative will host three online trainings prior to the event and those dates will be shared soon. Also, JA provides all materials for the program.

If you have volunteered in the past, we hope that you will join us again this year to help inspire a new group of 6th graders.

For questions, please contact Kelly Watkins at kellymwatkins@katyisd.org

We hope to see you in the classroom!

Spanish for Spanish Speakers Assessment

In an effort to provide information in advance of course selection and planning for next year, the Spanish for Spanish Speakers placement testing process will occur in the fall semester.


The Spanish for Spanish Speakers placement test will be given to 7th grade students who have indicated Spanish as the home language on the Home Language Survey. The purpose of this test is to identify students eligible to participate in the Spanish for Spanish Speakers Program. This course of study is designed for proficient Spanish speakers and allows four credits of Spanish to be earned in two academic years while in high school or two credits in junior high. This assessment is for placement purposes only and does not award credit for any course.


This assessment will take place at WCJH on December 4, 2019 during the school day. Letters will be sent home for students that have already been identified, and no further action is required unless you do not want your child tested.


If you do not received a letter and would like your child to participate in the assessment please contact Kodi Holmes at KodiLHolmes@katyisd.org before December 2, 2019.
