A Message from the Principal

Dear Jaguar Families,

This month's newsletter is packed full with information. I am sending it out a bit early as there are some events that are scheduled for early in the month, so it is important for you to have this information sooner rather than later.

After School Games and Activities-I made a crucial error in a recent parent newsletter. I stated that students "must go home first" before they can attend any after-school event. That is incorrect. Student "must leave campus" before they can attend any after-school event. It is crucial that we clear campus before allowing students back onto campus for any event. If your child would like to attend an after-school event, please make arrangements ahead of time, for them to leave campus and return at the appropriate time. Events, such as games, do not usually begin until 4:30 or 4:45. This "must leave campus" rule, does not apply to detention, tutoring, or any arrangements made with a teacher or staff member ahead of time.

Dine-Out Night- Our JBC has schedule a Dine-Out night at Barro's for Thursday, October 27, 2022. The information is down below.

Thanksgiving Feast-Please take note of our Thanksgiving Feast scheduled for November 2, 2022. The schedule of lunches is listed down below. Tickets for an adult lunch can be purchased for $4.60. Email, Ms. Kleinart, our kitchen manager, at if you would like to help serve.

11:06-11:36: 7th Grade

11:46-12:16: 8th Grade

12:28-12:58: 6th Grade

Drug Awareness Night-Don't forget the district is hosting a drug awareness night for parents and students at Western Sky Middle School. It is scheduled for November 2 at 5:00 pm.

As always, thank you for your continued support.


Mrs. Tassin and the Wigwam Creek Staff

Safety Symposium-SAVE THE DATE

Please mark your calendars for the evening of Wednesday, December 7th. We are hosting a safety symposium on campus in response to the recent increase in school threats on our campus and across the district. More information to come.

Our Site Council recently approved tax credit monies to be applied to the following before/after school clubs. Teachers who sponsor clubs are paid additional stipends for their time spent planning and sponsoring clubs outside of school hours. We believe involvement is important for our students so this year we are offering more clubs than ever before.

  • Mr. Molina-Jazz and Pep Band
  • Ms. Klonowski-Guitar Club
  • Ms. Cardona-8th Grade Leadership Group
  • Mr. Corella-Media Club
  • Ms. Johnson-Creative Writing Club and Pom Team

For many of the teachers, this club is in addition to their Teacher Leader Project so your support through tax credit is crucial.

For a schedule of after-school activities, please visit our website at the link below. This is updated frequently. If you would like your donation to go directly to a certain club, please indicate which club/activity on the tax form.
