A Message from Dr. Stone

Good evening!


It has been a great start to school so far. It is about to get busy with volleyball and football starting up. Hope to see you at one of the games!


I hope everyone has a great rest of the week and a restful weekend!


Regards,

WCJH Open House - Monday, August 26th

WCJH Open House will begin promptly at 6:30 on Monday, August 26. This is a great opportunity to meet your child's teachers, learn about their classes, and get information from our PTA. A schedule will be sent home that day for you to bring with you which you can follow for the night. We are looking forward to seeing you all.

Open House Dyslexia Support

Ms. Carissa Shupp, our campus Dyslexia Intervention Specialist, will be available to visit with our dyslexic students' parents during open house from 6:30 - 7:45 in room 1164. If your child participates in our dyslexia support program, please plan to stop by.

Schoolwide Fundraiser - Candybar Sales

Today, students attended our fundraiser assembly and received a sales order permission slip to take home. Students may participate in the fundraiser by returning the SIGNED permission slip tomorrow (8/22 or after) before 1st period in the cafeteria. The signed permission slip commits to paying $60 (the value of the candy) at the end of the fundraiser. Once a box is given to a student, leftover candy will not be returned - the value of the box must be turned in. Additional boxes may be attained daily by turning in the $60 collected funds of the previous box. We will distribute boxes between 8/22 and 9/5 daily. All money should be turned in using the envelope provided in the candy box. We will collect money daily in the cafeteria before school.

The Call Center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., until Wednesday, August 21.


Staff at the Center can be reached at 281-396-6008.


This year, if your child rides a bus, you can track the bus' whereabouts using the Edulog app! Please download the instructions below (click GPS PARENT PORTAL).

WCJH's GPS district code to use in the Edulog application is : 52218172

As soon as the new units arrive and installed they will let us know.

Dear Katy ISD Parents/Guardians, Staff and Community,

Katy ISD has launched two new resources for parents and students this school year!


Edulog Lite is a school bus tracking mobile app that monitors the location of a student’s bus. Parents of eligible riders will be emailed a campus code to use in their app by the first week of school.


A+ Pay N’ Go, an online web store, provides a quick and convenient way to pay student course fees, meal payments and other activity fees, all FREE of charge!


Get a jump start on the school year and check out the Pay N’ Go website and download the Edulog Lite app (Apple App Store or Google Play Store) today!
