Attention Junior Parents only:
Last call for any Junior who wishes to take advantage of our SAT School day, scheduled for March 24, 2021. This will count as our Junior's one free test which is offered to each student by the state. We were able to extended our deadline to sign up through this weekend. Students can sign up for the test through their School Cash Online account. Please sign up right away if you wish to take advantage of this opportunity for your Junior. Counselors need to put in the order for tests to the College Board next week.
Upcoming Individual Student Conferences with their Counselors:
During the months of February, March, and April, all of our current 9th -11th grade students will meet one on one with their school counselor to finalize next year’s courses as well as their four year plans. During the conference, the student (or counselor) will text or email a screen shot of their course selections to their families at the conclusion of their conference. In addition, they will discuss other topics that are pertinent to each grade level. For instance, upcoming juniors will hear a lot about taking the SAT and ACT next year in the spring.
Pre-Registration for 2021-2022 will start with Blitz week, January 19 through January 29, 2021. During this time, all core teachers will give their advisements for their students. Parents and students will be able to see those advisements on their four year plan tab on Parent Access Center (PAC) and Student Access Center (SAC). In addition, elective teachers will also start to visit with students during this time about the various programs in their departments.
Step One for the Preregistration process is the paper course selection worksheet. Students in all grade levels will receive a paper course selection worksheet through English classes for 9th grade, Chemistry classes for 10th grade, and English 3 classes for 11th grade during the week of January 25 through January 29. On these worksheets, students will be able to see what the course choices are for their upcoming grade level. For example, seniors have more choices of electives than the incoming sophomores and juniors.
Step Two for the Preregistration process involves the use of a computer, phone, or tablet. The online registration window is open from January 25, 2021 through February 5, 2021. Students and parents will need to login to their Students Access Center (SAC) or their Parent Access Center (PAC) to complete the registration process online. The courses can be found under the 4 Yr Plan tab for each student. It is important to note that we will be using the courses in the 4 Yr Plan as the final course request. The student’s paper copy will only be used as a resource to aide parents and students in the course selection process. Therefore, please make sure the courses in SAC or PAC are correct by the course selection sheet deadline of February 5, 2021.
Step Three for the Preregistration process involves your student’s meeting with their individual counselors. At that meeting, counselors will finalize their course selections with their students and will have the students send a screen shot home via text message and/or email. We hope this process will aid families and students in the course selection process.
Dates for Verification Sheets to be distributed to check course selections in the computer:
1st Verification Sheet of Course Selections: Week of April 16, 2021
Final Day to make changes to Course Selections for the 2021-2022 Calendar Year: April 30, 2021
Updated GPA and Class Ranks: Seniors GPA and Class Rank has been updated. The GPA and class rank will cover their 7 semesters of high school. For honor rank at graduation, the third quarter mark will be used as their final spring semester grade in GPA calculation. This GPA and class rank will be released the second week in April.
Junior GPA and Class Rank will be run next. We hope to have it ready by February 26, 2021.
Sophomore GPA and Class Rank will be downloaded before we leave for spring break on March 11, 2021.
COLLEGE AND CAREER CENTER:
TWHS will offer the TSI exam and the ASVAB free of charge on Wednesday, March 24th for Seniors.
Seniors needing to take the TSI Exam for college registration or the ASVAB for military entrance can sign up in their School Cash Online account between February 1st and February 16th.
CHANGING INSTRUCTIONAL PLATFORMS:
As campuses prepare for the start of the fourth grading period, we know that some families may be considering changing instructional platforms. If you would like to move your child from remote/online instruction to face-to-face instruction or vice versa, please contact your student's counselor by the end of the school day on Tuesday, February 16th. The fourth grading period begins on Monday, March 22, 2021.
As COVID cases continue to spike, we want to remind everyone to continue to be vigilant about wearing a mask that covers BOTH YOUR NOSE AND YOUR MOUTH while at school (unless eating or drinking), or anywhere else in public where you may be in close contact with others. Avoid touching your face, sanitize your hands frequently, stay home if you are having any symptoms, and avoid gatherings or riding in cars with people who you do not live with. We need everyone’s help to stop the spread of this virus, and ensure that our schools can stay open.
Parents, if someone in your household tests positive for COVID, please notify the school clinic as soon as possible at 936-709-1076 for the Senior Campus or at 832-592-8209 for the 9th Grade Campus, and email a copy of the positive test, if it is for one of our students, to firstname.lastname@example.org for the Senior Campus or to email@example.com for the 9th Grade Campus. Please also contact the clinic if your child has been identified as a close contact to someone who tests positive, so that we can review the quarantine guidelines with you. If your student is having symptoms and has a pending test, please keep them home until the test results are received.

BOYS BASKETBALL: January 9th vs. Willis
On Saturday, January 9th, The Highlanders faced the Willis Wildkats on the road. The Wildkats came into the game winless in District play, and The Highlanders came out strong, jumping out to a 25-14 lead in the first quarter, a lead which grew to 42-20 by halftime. The beginning of the 2nd half was a struggle for The Highlanders as they missed every shot they took, scoring only a single point on a made free throw in the entire 3rd quarter. Going into the 4th quarter, The Highlanders lead had shrunk to 43-29. Fortunately, the lead held up as The Highlanders went on to win 56-45. The win improved The Highlanders record to 13-4 overall and 4-1 in District. Scoring for The Highlanders was as follows: Brock Luechtefeld-13, Shey Eberwein-13, Justin Sheldon-13, Kylan Williams-5, Hagen Byerly-5, David Omokwale-4, and Isaiah Brown-3. In other games, the JV won 48-47, the Sophomores won 41-33, the Freshman Green won 62-44, and the Freshman Red won 53-14.
January 13th vs. Oak Ridge
On Wednesday, January 13th, The Highlanders faced the Oak Ridge War Eagles at home. This would be the second time they played the War Eagles as they start through the 2nd round of District play. The Highlanders opened up with a 1st quarter lead of 17-13, and stretched the lead to 29-20 with less than 3 minutes to go in the half. But the Highlanders went cold again, and from late in the 2nd quarter until 5 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter, the War Eagles went on a 19-0 run, building a 10-point lead. Over the rest of the 3rd quarter and into the 4th quarter, The Highlanders were able to battle back, and with 4 minutes remaining, The Highlanders took the lead at 55-53. The teams battled back and forth over the next couple of minutes, and with 1:42 remaining to play, The Highlanders had the ball with a 59-59 tie score. Unfortunately, The Highlanders were unable to capitalize on their possession, and a missed bucket gave the ball back to the War Eagles. The War Eagles ran a screen play along the baseline, and a missed call on a moving screen that knocked David Omokwale to the ground, led to a wide-open look. The made bucket was the War Eagles’ 13th made three-pointer in the game and a gave them a 62-59 lead. The Highlanders were not able to close the gap the rest of the way and lost the game with a final score of 64-61, dropping their record to 13-5 overall and 4-2 in District. Scoring for The Highlanders was: Shey Eberwein-14, Brock Luechtefeld-10, Kylan Williams-10, Hagen Byerly-10, David Omokwole-8, Isaiah Brown-7, and Sam Suter-2. In other games, the JV won 44-30, the Sophomores won 63-25, the Freshman Green won 68-44, and the Freshman Red won 52-35.
January 16th vs. Grand Oaks
The Highlanders faced the Grand Oaks Grizzlies on Saturday, January 16th, in a noon game on the road. The Highlanders opened the game with better defensive intensity, holding Grand Oaks to 9 points in the 1st quarter and jumping out to a 15-9 lead. They stretched that lead to 29-21 by halftime, but lost some intensity in the 3rd quarter, leading to a 39-32 lead going into the 4th quarter. During the 4th, The Highlanders play picked up as the boys finished strong, stretching the lead to as many as 21 points late in the game. The 57-38 final score improved The Highlanders record to 14-5 overall and 5-2 in District play. The Highlanders had three players in double figures with scoring as follows: Brock Luechtefeld-12, Kylan Williams-11, Hagen Byerly-10, Shey Eberwein-8, Isaiah Brown-6, David Omokwale-3, Cade Moore-3, Justin Sheldon-3, and Sam Suter-1. In other games, the JV lost 50-65, the Sophomores lost 43-46, the Freshman Green lost 33-39, and the Freshman Red won 51-21.
January 20th vs. Conroe
On Wednesday, January 20th, The Highlanders faced the Conroe Tigers for the second time this season. The Tigers came in hoping to avenge a 3-point loss at home in their previous matchup. The first quarter belonged to Hagen Byerly, who scored 17 of The Highlanders 22 points, including 5 made three-pointers, giving The Highlanders a 22-9 lead. During the second quarter, the teams played even, and The Highlanders went into halftime with a 33-20 lead. The Highlanders opened the second half firing on all cylinders, and contributions from multiple players led to a 26-10 advantage in the quarter. The performance really put the game out of reach for the Tigers with The Highlanders leading 59-30 at the end of the 3rd quarter. Coach Reed rested the starters for most of the 4th quarter, and fan favorite Ben Burgess was able to connect on a three-pointer and a tough layup, both to thunderous applause from the home crowd. The 72-51 final score improved The Highlanders record to 15-5 overall and 6-2 in District play. Scoring for The Highlanders was as follows: Hagen Byerly-23, Shey Eberwein-11, Brock Luechtefeld-11, Kylan Williams-6, Cade Moore-6, Ben Burgess-5, Isaiah Brown-4, Chase Edwards-4, and David Omokwale-2. In other games, the JV won 40-27, the Sophomores won 54-39, the Freshman Green won 57-30, and the Freshman Red won 39-36.
January 23rd vs. College Park
On Saturday, January 23rd, The Highlanders faced the College Park Cavaliers on the road in a rematch of their January 6th loss to the Cavaliers. This game started out much differently as The Highlanders defense held the high-powered Cavaliers offense in check for much of the game. The Highlanders got the tip, and on their first possession, a great lob pass by Hagen Byerly led to a reverse by Brock Luechtefeld and got The Highlanders on the board first. But scoring would be hard to come by after that as the Cavaliers ended the 1st quarter with a 13-8 advantage. The Highlanders outplayed the Cavaliers by just a bit in the 2nd quarter, and by halftime the lead was down to three points at 24-21. Unfortunately, a 10-0 run by the Cavaliers to open the second half put The Highlanders in a hole they would never climb out of. The third quarter ended 45-30, and The Highlanders ended up falling to the Cavaliers 56-40. The loss dropped The Highlanders record to 15-6 overall and 6-3 in District. Kylan Williams played a very solid game and was the only Highlander in double figures. Soring was as follows: Kylan Williams-11, Shey Eberwein-9, David Omokwale-6, Brock Luechtefeld-5, Hagen Byerly-5, and Isaiah Brown-4. In other games, the JV lost 47-58, the Sophomores won 47-38, the Freshman Green lost 49-62, and the Freshman Red won 52-7.
January 26th vs. Willis
On Tuesday, January 26th, The Highlanders were at home, facing the Willis Wildkats for their second matchup during district play. Coming off the tough loss to College Park, The Highlanders got to work against a Wildkat team that had yet to win a game in district play. The Highlanders finished the 1st quarter with a respectable 17-7 lead. Then, during the 2nd quarter, The Highlanders outscored the Wildkats by an astounding 33-2. Kylan Williams again turned in a solid performance with 16 points in the first half. Unlike their previous matchup, The Highlanders never let the Wildkats back in the game as they cruised to a 76-42 win, sitting the starters for much of the 2nd half. The win raised The Highlanders record to 16-6 overall and 7-3 in District. With four players in double figures, scoring for The Highlanders was: Kylan Williams-16, Isaiah Brown-13, Shey Eberwein-12, Brock Luechtefeld-10, Justin Sheldon-8, Hagen Byerly-5, Cade Moore-5, Sam Suter-4, and Chase Edwards-3. In other games, the JV won 40-25, the Sophomores won 51-25, the Freshman Green won 56-37, and the Freshman Red won 64-12.
January 29th vs. Oak Ridge
On Friday, January 29th, The Highlanders went on the road to face the Oak Ridge War Eagles. The Highlanders and War Eagles split their first two matchups this year with The Highlanders winning the first game 72-58, and the War Eagles winning the second matchup 64-61. During the opening couple of minutes of the 1st quarter, it looked like it might be a battle again as the score was knotted at 2-2 with just under 6 minutes to play. But then then the flood gates opened on offense, and the defense shut down the War Eagles. The Highlanders finished the quarter on a 15-0 run, with 8 points, including two made three-pointers, by junior Justin Sheldon, leading to a 17-2 advantage. The second quarter was more evenly played, but The Highlanders maintained a healthy lead going into halftime up 28-11. During the 3rd quarter, The Highlanders put on a clinic, outscoring the War Eagles 29-9, and opening up a 57-20 lead with 7 players scoring during the frame. Coach Reed substituted freely after that, resting the starters for much of the fourth quarter, and The Highlanders went on to win by a final score of 81-41. The win improved The Highlanders record to 17-6 overall and 8-3 in District. The win also means The Highlanders have clinched a spot in the post-season playoffs for the 16th straight year. Scoring for The Highlanders was: Justin Sheldon-18, Brock Luechtefeld-16, Kylan Williams-12, Shey Eberwein-8, Isaiah Brown-8, Cade Moore-7, Hagen Byerly-6, David Omokwole-2, Ben Burgess-2, and Chase Edwards-2. In other games, the JV won 63-44, the Sophomores won 44-22, the Freshman Green won 62-22, and the Freshman Red won in OT 49-46.
February 2nd vs. Grand Oaks
On Tuesday, February 2nd, The Highlanders had a home district game against the Grand Oaks Grizzlies. The Highlanders had already won the previous two matchups, but a win would potentially help secure the number 2 seed in district, even with 3 games left to play. The game was never in doubt as The Highlanders started quickly, jumping out to a 19-6 lead after the first quarter. The Grizzlies had no answer for The Highlanders size, with Kylan Williams scoring 8 points and Brock Luechtefeld scoring 6 points in the opening frame. The second quarter was more of the same and The Highlanders held a 38-18 lead with Kylan Williams and Brock Luechtefeld each scoring 14 points by halftime. Scoring was even in the third quarter, and after an acrobatic bucket by David Omokwale to close out the period, The Highlanders held a 53-33 lead. During the fourth quarter, The Highlanders expanded the lead to 28 on a three-pointer by Isaiah Brown with 4:03 to play, leading Coach Reed to substitute for the entire lineup. The Highlanders went on to win by a final score of 69-46. The win improved The Highlanders record to 18-6 overall and 9-3 in District, securing the overall 2nd seed in district play. Scoring for The Highlanders was: Kylan Williams-22, Brock Luechtefeld-19, Justin Sheldon-10, Shey Eberwein-6, Isaiah Brown-5, David Omokwole-4, and Ben Burgess-3. In other games, the JV lost 26-39, the Sophomores won 51-26, the Freshman Green won 36-31, and the Freshman Red won 69-26.
Highlanders next game is Friday night at Conroe 7pm. Then their final home game of the season Tuesday February 9th against College Park.
LADY HIGHLANDER BASKETBALL: Wow! What a season! The Freshmen Lady Highlanders worked tirelessly throughout the season with one goal in mind. . . District Champs. With so many unknowns, unexpected interruptions, cancellations, illness, quarantines, and the overall experience of playing through a pandemic, there was much to worry and complain about. Instead, the lady highlanders, used every road block as a stepping stone to get better, and never made excuses. The freshmen finished with a record of 18-3 (9-1 District) and accomplished their goal of becoming District Champions. The future is bright with this group of highlanders. Great job ladies, we're very proud of you! Coach Dillon and Coach Harvey
As the 2020-2021 season has come to an end, the Lady Highlander JV team is truly grateful for every opportunity they were given to participate in the game they love. Despite all the obstacles thrown their way this season, these ladies found a way to prevail. Numerous hard-fought battles, some games going down to the very last possession, and even one requiring overtime, the Lady Highlanders fought their way to victory almost every night. They finished the season with an overall record of 17-5 and a district record of 7-3, landing them 2nd place in district standings! The Lady Highlander JV team had a strong front lead by Ashley Soucek, Piper Findlay, Jackie Burke, Payton Findlay, and Ashleigh Dixon. They also added some of the most impactful players like Teyha Rubio, Brooke Hochstein, Gianna Henry, Chaniyah Hill, Madelyn Lipe, Daniela Llamosa, Alina Virani, and Ximena Gonzaga. Great Season Ladies! Thank you for all your hard work and the amazing teamwork you displayed daily. Can't wait to see you back on the hardwood next season.....until then, back to the lab we go! Time to get even better!
The Lady Highlander Varsity was so happy to be able to suit up and play through a basketball season during this crazy time of Covid. While our goal coming in was to make our way back into the playoffs this year, we weren't able to quite get there but you can't say these girls didn't battle and fight every night. The Varsity had a small roster this year with 9 awesome young ladies and 2 amazing managers. The team was led by 3 awesome seniors on the court and 2 on the stats! Anna-Claire Biggerstaff and Sowmya Swaminathan both had a great season. Leading the Lady Highlanders in not just scoring many nights, but always in their hard work and determination. Unfortunately we lost Sophia Weisbrod mid season to a knee injury, but she had a great start to the year and continued to be our Lady Highlander voice on the sidelines. Chloe Jones and Rhegan Barth were the 2 all-star managers on the sideline and the biggest Lady Highlander cheerleaders out there! The Varsity also had some big contributions from juniors Alejandra Merodio, Anna Orr, Laura Haas, Mykah Mustiful, and Astha Chitlangia. And last but not least our one lone sophomore Brianna Dickson also did a great job this year. The girls that will be returning next season all got some great experience this year on the court, and I look forward to seeing them use that and grow as a team moving into next season. This team was such a great group and the seniors will definitely be missed next year, but we wish them the best in the future!! Go Highlanders!

ATTENDANCE: If your student needs to leave campus during the school day for any reason, please send them to school with a note stating the time they need to leave. Students should turn in their notes to the attendance office upon arrival at school, during their lunch period, or between classes. At that time, the attendance office staff will give them a Permit to Leave pass to present to their teacher at the appointed time. Students are always required to check out through the attendance office before leaving campus. Students may not leave campus without signing out. There will be consequences such as loss of parking or after school detention. As always, individuals picking up a student must show a picture ID. Thank you for helping your students stay safe and accounted for during the school day.
FRONT OFFICE ATTENDANCE: Virtual Students will continue to complete the Daily Attendance assignment for each class according to the RED/GREEN Calendar.
Absences will accrue and all attendance policies will be in effect for all students. Students must be in attendance at least 90% of the time that classes are in session.
