Orientation - July 28 for 8th Graders, July 29 for 7th Graders

Student orientation at McCullough Junior High is scheduled for July 28 for incoming 8th graders and July 29 for incoming 7th graders. Students will be able to pick up their tentative schedules, locker assignments, and tour the building. Additionally, parents/guardians can sign up for PTO membership and purchase school clothing/gear.

If school supplies were ordered through the PTO, they will be available for pick up at orientation.

The child, or the child's official parent/guardian must be present to pick up materials. Students' schedules will only be available during their time slot so that the line will move quickly for all. For purchase of materials please note that some areas will be able to accept credit cards and others cash/check. Having both payment options available will make for a smoother experience.

TWHS/McC Red Green 2022-23 Calendar

Both McCullough and The Woodlands High School operate on a Red and Green Calendar in which students will attend four classes on Red Day and four different classes on Green Day.

Red Day classes are numbered 1 through 4 and Green Day classes are numbered 5 through 8. This numbering system should make it easier for students to understand their schedules.

Please click on the links below to view the Red and Green Day Calendar and the Conroe ISD Calendar for the 22-23 Year.

School Supplies

We ask that students bring two boxes of tissues to turn in to their homeroom teacher the first week of school. Each teacher will let students know which school supplies are appropriate for their classes. Please click on the link below to view the general school supply list.

If you ordered school supplies from the PTO, they will be available for pick up at orientation.

School Supplies: Limited Online Sales: PTO has a very limited number of school supplies packs available for $63 each:

McCullough JHS PTO News

McCullough JHS PTO

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at orientation!

First of all, we would like to thank everyone for their generous support last year. Thanks to your contributions, the McC PTO was able to provide a new audio/visual system implemented in the cafeteria. This was greatly appreciated by both the students and staff. The PTO was also able to serve our teachers and staff an appreciation lunch every month.

Orientation is just around the corner and to make things easier for you so you won't have to wait in line, we would like to offer online options!

Please consider supporting our PTO by purchasing a membership. This is our main fundraiser and a basic membership is only $25 and will get you a student directory. If you'd like to save a step at Orientation, here is the link to purchase 2022-2023 PTO Memberships.

We also invite you to stop by the McCullough Spirit Wear table and see all the new merchandise. **Online purchases will be available for pick-up at Orientation.

Interested in helping out at McC Orientation? Please see the link below for volunteer opportunities on July 28 and July 29.

There are also many volunteer opportunities. If you would like to get involved please fill out the Membership & Volunteer form below.

Hope to see you all soon, Go Highlanders!!!
