Pennies for Patients

Pennies for Patients is this week!


Pennies for Patients is a fundraising event that is sponsored by National Junior Honor Society, and we are raising money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This organization researches and raises awareness for cancers of the blood. Our campus goal is to raise $8,000 for LLS.


How can you help??

1. NJHS students will be collecting spare change and dollar bills in the am and pm car rider lines. Please bring your spare change and donate!


2. Students will be able to “Buy Out” of doing classwork on Friday Oct. 18th if their class raises $20.


3. The top earning class will receive a full catered Olive Garden lunch. The 2nd top earning class will win a Domino’s pizza lunch. Send in money for your student for each class period on Friday 10/18.


4. Your child’s teacher will accept cash, checks made payable to LLS, and coins.


Last year, we were the 2nd top earning school in Katy ISD and the entire Gulf Coast region! Let’s see if we can earn the TOP spot this year!

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!
