A Message from Dr. Lowry
It is National School Counselor Appreciation Week! Make sure you take some time this week and let Kesley Moebes, Jodi Slaughter, Jessie Clay and Meghan McCarthy know how much we appreciate them!
Also, this week will mark the end of our season for both our Boys & Girls Basketball Teams. Due to the severe weather last week, our tournaments were re-scheduled for this week. If you have the time to catch a game, they would love your support. What a great season for all our Timberwolf Teams! Good luck!
Please take a look through this week's Timberwolf Times to see important information about next year's course selections. Please note, the 2022-23 course selection is due online Sunday, February 6th. We will have our Spring Picture Day this week (Wed., Feb. 9th), please see below for ordering details. We also have information on our WJCH Volunteer Breakfast, OTHS and KHS Mascot and Cheer Tryouts, and the 8th Grade Tropical Getaway Celebration.
Finally, we are gearing up for our Spring season of sports. Be sure to check out all the details below for tryout information coming up.
As always, thank you for showing your support to our staff and students. We appreciate you and all you do!
