Vol. 1 Issue 37, May 8, 2019
Hello Timberwolf Nation!
Only a few more days left but they are jam packed with events! Next week is STAAR testing Monday - Thursday so we are a closed campus those days. Awards night is Next Thursday. If your child is receiving an award you will be notified this week if they need to be at the awards ceremony. The 8th Grade Clap Out is Monday, May 20th. I hope that all parents and family members sign up before so we can get you into the building quicker than having to check in to the front of the building. The link to sign up is below. It is an awesome event that we started last year. Let's send off our 8th graders in style!
If you haven't already noticed, our marquee has gotten a face lift! It has been repainted, new doors have been put on and the light works now so you can see it at night. Big thanks to our Maintenance and Operations Department for making it happen!
I hope that everyone has a great rest of the week!

Parents What You Need To Know
We are excited to continue WCJH's new tradition for our graduating 8th graders. On Monday, May 20th, 2019 the 8th grade students will walk the school dressed in pride, wearing either a t-shirt or school colors representing the high school they'll be attending next year. Under-classmates, teachers, staff, and family members will congratulate them and say farewell as they walk through the school. The Clap Out will start promptly at 9:45am on the 20th.
As part of the celebration, the 8th Grade End-of-Year-Committee is selling Katy and Tompkins high school shirts for 8th graders. Please note that those students who purchased a ticket to the dance will automatically receive one.
