A Message from Dr. Stone
The start of school is only a week away! I hope that everyone had a fantastic and restful summer. Tomorrow is the Wolfpack Walk and the Howlapalooza Celebration! I want to remind parents that the schedules that students receive tomorrow could change before next Wednesday. We have enrolled several students and we are making adjustments to teachers' and students' schedules almost daily.
I wanted to let you know that WCJH was named a Texas Honor Roll school again for the 18-19 school year! It is a testament to the hard work that all of our teachers, staff, students, parents and community put in to our school.
I look forward to seeing all of you in the coming weeks!

News from the Registrar
Buses will have GPS!
Dear Katy ISD Parents/Guardians, Staff and Community,
Katy ISD has launched two new resources for parents and students this school year!
Edulog Lite is a school bus tracking mobile app that monitors the location of a student’s bus. Parents of eligible riders will be emailed a campus code to use in their app by the first week of school.
A+ Pay N’ Go, an online web store, provides a quick and convenient way to pay student course fees, meal payments and other activity fees, all FREE of charge!

WCJH is proud to share this Katy Magazine article that was written about our music duo at WCJH: Anne and Bobby Guess. They are amazing!
As a Bus Driving Parent, you’ll have the opportunity to drive your student’s school on field trips! You will receive training and licensing, as well as payment for your time each trip you drive.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. I’ve never driven a bus before. Will I receive training?
Yes! You must obtain a Commercial Driver’s License and Katy ISD will train you to drive a school bus during several training classes. Visit the Texas Department of Public Safety website for more information on CDL requirements.
2. What is required to be a BDP?
The Department of Public Safety and Katy ISD training requirements apply. You must have a clean driving record (no DUI’s, etc.) and you must pass all the background checks required for Katy ISD employees.
3. Does this make me a Katy ISD Employee?
All field trip drivers will be employed by Katy ISD as substitute bus drivers and will be compensated for your work.
4. Will I be required to bus multiple trips throughout the school year?
No, you will only drive on the trips you choose, which can be as few or as many as you like.
5. Who is allowed to apply?
Parents, Grandparents, Guardians, PTA Volunteers – if you’re invested in and connected to Katy ISD, we invite you to apply!
