A Message from Dr. Stone

Good evening!


So far it has been a great week at the Creek!


Parents, we need your help! The end of the day is very busy with advisory and dismissal. For safety reasons and to help you get in and out quickly, students are not to be checked out from attendance after 3:30 p.m. Thank you so much for your help with this!


Tonight the 8th grade volleyball team takes on Beckendorff here at WCJH while the 7th graders will be at Beckendorff. Also tonight, the 8th grade football team will tangle with the Stockdick Sabrecats at Paetow High School. Details about each game are below. Come out and cheer them on! GO TIMBERWOLVES!


Regards,


Dr. Melinda Stone

Principal

WoodCreek Junior High

Morning Tutorial Reminder

As a reminder, before-school tutorials begin at 8:10am, and any students attending must be dropped off at the front of the school. Please do not drop off your students at the back of school, as that area is reserved for buses and the doors are locked.

Front Lot Tags for Student Drop Off/Pick Up

Just a reminder that the front parking lot is not to be used for student pick up or drop off unless you have one of these tags that are issued by either the nurse or the band directors for large instruments. If you do not have one of these tags, please use the circular drive to pick up and drop off your child.

PARENT BOOK STUDY WITH WCJH COUNSELORS

The WCJH Counseling department will be hosting a Parent Book Study.


Teens today are forty percent less empathetic than they were thirty years ago, often with devastating consequences. In 'Unselfie', best selling author and parenting expert Dr. Michele Borba pinpoints the forces causing the empathy crisis and offers a revolutionary 9-step plan to help parents and educators cultivate empathy in children, from birth to young adulthood.


With age appropriate exercises and examples from years of research, Dr. Borba offers a framework that yields the results we all want: successful, happy kids who grow up to be kind, moral, courageous, and resilient adults.


Please join us as we explore ways to shift our children's focus from I, ME, and MINE to US, WE, and OURS.
