Back to School 2014

Our school day this year is 9:20 - 3:50

Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year!

As the last few days of summer break come to an end, there are many great things to look forward to at WRJHS! This Back to School email contains important information to get the year started. Our school is dedicated to caring about students and providing a school climate that fits the needs of every student. We look forward to working with your family this year and we hope to see you at the upcoming Meet the Teacher night!

Frequent communication between home and school is critical during these middle years. I encourage you to connect with your child’s teacher anytime throughout the year with questions or concerns. I am always available to speak with you as well. Consider my door open. Your child’s well-being is our primary concern and we will do all that we can to help them have a successful experience at Waggoner Road Junior High.

All the best,

Chris Brooks
