"Together We Can"
A Message from Ms. Butler
Dear Woodlands Classical Academy Families,
As we recover from Winter Storm Uri, our main campus has had quite a bit of damage. This week, I would like to commend my staff that has persevered through displacement and surprise moves to other classrooms due to unexpected flooding. The spirit of "Together We Can" was definitely shown this week.
- Mrs. Sonya and Ms. Kim Wallace for holding the office together. Running an office from the atrium is not ideal but you did it with a smile.
- Nurse Kennerly and Nurse Stoffer were a tag team and persevered in our atrium and isolation room. Our scholars were served with care and discretion.
- Mrs. Lobana came to work two separate days to water in her classroom. Mrs. Newman and Mrs. Unger were awesome and relocated to other locations to conduct their virtual classes while Mrs. Lobana taught her first graders. Thank you for your hospitality and assistance in ensuring all scholars learned.
- Mrs. Green and Mrs. Hutsell have preserved and endured in another classroom while their room is repaired from water damage. Thank you for regrouping and finding ways to educate our scholars through this unideal situation.
- Mrs. Monnichmann, Mrs. McCoy, Mrs. Zeremeno, Mrs. Roach, and Mrs. Tate for going the extra mile to ensure that our JH building was running smoothly.
- Mr. Dabney, Mr. Dickerson, Mr. Wright, and Mr. Schisler; thank you for being our "muscle" on campus and moving items around, especially the heavy stuff. We would still be in disarray without you.
- Dr. A, Mrs. Dupuis, Mrs. Bannon, and Mrs. Melendez: Thank you for ensuring TELPAS still happened this week. I believe we are on plan G but you didn't complain or give up when life threw us curve balls.
- I would also like to thank these scholars: Gabriel, Phillip, Theresa, Shelby, Caleb, Nikil, Benedict, Chloe, Bonnie, Ronan, Malachi, and Zian for moving furniture, chairs, books, and/or desk during our displacement. We appreciate you.
- If I missed anyone who has assisted
We are 9 school days away from our spring break. Scholars spring break will begin on Friday, March 12, and end on Friday, March 19.
If your family is in need of assistance, please reach out to Mrs. Sonya. She is coordinating assistance for our families. You can reach out to her via Facebook or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't guarantee that we can fully support all needs but we will try to help as much as possible.
Want to Give Assistance
If you want to help a family that is in need of assistance, please reach out to Mrs. Sonya. She is coordinating assistance for our families. You can reach out to her via Facebook or email at email@example.com.
This year, our breakfast program is completely free. If your child is an in-person scholar, they can pick up breakfast from the breakfast cart each morning. The elementary's breakfast cart is located in the atrium as the scholars enter the double doors. The junior high's breakfast cart is located in the atrium between Mrs. Clopton's and Mrs. McCoy's classrooms. If your child is a virtual learner, you can pick up breakfast on Mondays for the week. You will be given a week's worth of breakfast per child that attends TWCA. Again, this program is completely free to all scholars.
In-Person Scholars COVID-19 Daily Screener
Just a reminder, please remember to complete your COVID-19 screener daily. If your child is experiencing any of the symptoms on the screener, please email Nurse Kennerly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 936-242-1541. All staff is required to complete a COVID-19 as well. If your child begins experiencing COVID-19 symptoms at school, we can test your child for COVID-19; however, we need consent.

Amelia Earhart is the first woman to cross the Atlantic in an airplane, 1928
After that first trip across the ocean, which took more than 20 hours, Amelia Earhart became a celebrity: She won countless awards, got a ticker-tape parade down Broadway, wrote a best-selling book about her famous flight and became an editor at Cosmopolitan magazine. In 1937, Earhart attempted to be the first female pilot to fly around the world, and the first pilot of any gender to circumnavigate the globe at its widest point, the Equator. Along with her navigator Fred Noonan, Earhart successfully hopscotched from Miami to Brazil, Africa, India and Australia. Six weeks after they began their journey, Earhart and Noonan left New Guinea for the U.S. territory of Howland Island, but they never arrived. No trace of Earhart, Noonan or their plane was ever found.
