Help WCJH Win and Help the KatyISD Education Foundation!

If you haven't heard, WCJH is partnering up with Stockdick Junior High for a Reason2Race on February 8, 2020. The race raises money for the KatyISD Foundation that provides grants to classroom teachers in our district so they can continue to provide unparallelled experiences for students. WCJH has been fortunate to benefit from these grants in past years! The campus team who raises the most money gets "The Golden Shoe" and bragging rights for the whole year. If you feel so inclined, please consider donating any amount of money to any of our staff members who have signed up!


We appreciate your support!

Katy ISD and American Hear Association Partnership

Katy ISD and the American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health, have partnered to build awareness around the dangers of vaping.


The number of teens who vape has more than doubled in just the past two years, to five million, according to the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey. More than one in four high school students report vaping.


In addition, e-cigarettes can contain unusually high levels of nicotine – in fact, one e-cigarette pod can contain as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes. Youth who vape are particularly susceptible to nicotine addiction, which rewires the developing brain.


Help spread the word using Katy ISD’s hashtag: #QuitLyingAboutVaping and consider signing the AHA letter to hold Big Vape accountable.
