Junior High Tennis Tryouts
As you may know, the Wylie Independent School District is implementing tennis at our three junior high campuses beginning in the fall of the 2016-2017 school year. Our original plan was to make tennis an open elective class for two periods per day on each junior high campus to serve a total of 60 students per campus. However, due to overwhelming interest in the program at each campus, we have determined that, much like we do in volleyball, basketball, and soccer at the junior high level, we will have to have try-outs for the available spots in the classes. The two tennis class periods at each junior high campus will be made up of a combination of fifteen 7th grade girls, fifteen 7th grade boys, fifteen 8th grade girls, and fifteen 8th grade boys (60 students total on the three junior high campuses). Participating in the junior high tennis class is not mandatory for later participation in tennis at the respective high school campuses.
The try-outs will be held later this month using the schedule listed in the attachment to the Parent Weekly News.

Students may bring cell phones to school; however, they are to be turned off during the instructional part of the day unless the teachers asks that they be used to support student learning and instruction. Students should not be placing calls, receiving texts or calls, texting during the school day unless asked to do so by an adult in the building. If your child is ill, he or she is to report to the clinic and Nurse Melissa will call parents accordingly. Cell phones may be confiscated and returned at the end of the day if students are not following campus expectations.
