    Today our students took PSAT, Mock ELA tests, and prepared for Algebra I EOC as we shut down our building to prepare our students for upcoming testing this year.

    Our students did a great job! The day was a success! 

    Our first nine weeks is winding down. Please encourage your student to take care of their grades. This is another UIL eligibility check.

    Each day during Power Hour, students should take responsibility of their learning and go to see their teachers for extra help, homework help, or make-ups.

    There are no excuses for failing grades as students have an opportunity to get the help they need during the school day. 

    Thanks for your support!

    Greetings and Happy Tuesday!

    Our halls are a bit more crowded as we have added our third class. Students are doing a great job of finding their way and all is well.

    Power Hour

    Power Hour has begun and is a privilege for our students. From 12:05 – 1:05 students have the opportunity to take care of their business.

    Students are expected to: 

    • Eat lunch
    • Attend tutorials 
    • Participate in club or interest groups
    • Visit with counselors, including college and career options
    • Retests and make-up exams
    • Access computers in the library
    • UIL prep time
    • EOC intervention sessions
    • Attend lunch detentions

    We want students to take responsibility for their needs. This allows them to see teachers during the school day instead of having to stay after school.  

    ID’s – it is an expectation that all students and adults have their ID visible throughout the school day.

    Come out and support our WHS programs this week.
