Tiger Talk Back 2 School Edition #2

08/04/21

Today's Edition: School Spirit!

Please watch for our daily editions, weekdays 8/3 - 8/16!

We are SOOOO excited to start the new school year!!! And, we suspect that you might be, too!

To prepare us all for August 18, we are publishing Special Edition Tiger Talks each weekday leading up to Meet the Teacher Day and the First Day of School. In each Special Edition, we will cover a topic that we hope you will find reassuring and helpful.


And, certainly, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be of assistance to our Tiger Families.


We look forward to seeing you soon!

A Welcome From our Principal

It is with great pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to all of our new and returning families to West Cypress Hills Elementary School! There are so many reasons to celebrate our school, and it starts with your being a part of this magnificent community. West Cypress Hills Elementary is a learning community where every learner is nurtured, respected, and challenged. Here at WCHE we believe learning should be a social, inspiring journey full of dynamic experiences that build the love of life-long learning in all of our students. This year we will continue to explore all of the ways West Cypress teachers build personal, inspiring and authentic educational experiences for our learners.


I am thrilled that you have chosen West Cypress Hills Elementary as your child’s school. Our staff is highly-qualified, hard-working, and dedicated to growing strong learners and leaders here on our campus. We deeply appreciate your sharing your wonderful children with us here at WCHE. We treasure the opportunity to learn and grow together with our WCHE families.


If convenient for you to do so, please stop by our school Library, Wednesday, August 18, around 7:42 am, so that I can visit with you in person over a cup of coffee. Our fabulous PTO is sponsoring a Principal's Coffee the morning that our Tigers start their new school year. I look forward to meeting you there.


With warmest regards,

Melanie Beninga, Principal

School Song

The Tiger school song is sung to the tune of The Yellow Rose of Texas.


We are the mighty tigers,
We always give our best.
To help out one another,
and outshine all the rest.


We are the mighty tigers,
The best in all the land!
We'll wear our purple, black,
and white and lend a helping hand.


We are the mighty tigers,
We're loyal, brave, and true.
With Tulley here to guide us,
We know just what to do!


We are the mighty tigers,
and you should hear us ROAR!
West Cypress Hills, we sing to you
We'll love you evermore!
