• WHS Update: Dec. 2

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 12/3/2019 7:00:00 AM

    Greetings Wolf Pack Families!

    We are in the holiday season. The time has passed and there is so much left to do!

    Many activities will be happening and can be an easy distraction, so I encourage you to remind your students to stay focused for three more weeks, and we will end our semester. 

    Mid-term exams are the week of Dec 16 – 20.

    Great things going on:

    Congratulations to our WHS Band and Dance Team – No. 11 in the state!

    Congratulations to our Football program – advancing all the way to Area playoffs ~ what an accomplishment in our very short existence!

    Congratulations to our Region Weiss Choir members and four musicians that auditioned at the Pre-Area competition! Nice!

    Congratulations to our AG students and teams! Weiss FFA in our third year makes FFA History as Sr. Agricultural Skills advances to state! Way to go!

    Next, we embark on Basketball, Wrestling, UIL Academics & Debate seasons. It’s going to be exciting!

    Many Holiday service projects are in the works, and we hope you will join us as our Theater company presents this year’s musical – "The Little Mermaid." (Dec. 12, 13, 14 at 7 p.m. in the Wolf PAC)

    And, don’t forget about Weiss High School’s Howliday featuring our Fine Arts performances throughout the evening, and lots of fun for young ones, parents, and grandparents! (Thursday, Dec. 5 from 6 – 8 p.m. Admission: two canned goods. Come on by and bring your friends!)

  • A New School Year

    Posted by Marcial Guajardo on 8/22/2019 7:00:00 AM

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year – the year we graduate our first senior class!

    Exciting times are upon us. I can report a great start to the year. Oh, how we have grown! And, we continue to do so. Please know as we continue to register students, we are leveling classes and trying to get all students in the right place. 

    Our Assistant Principals have started Class Talks this week and are teaching and reminding our students about our high expectations for all. 

    We will soon begin our Power Hour. Please ask you student the expectations of Power Hour. It is a unique privilege and it is much more than lunchtime for students. We want all students to take responsibility for their learning, and get the support that they need during this time. They can access their teachers for extra help, complete make-up work and classroom projects, or have a study group to prepare for a test. They are expected to grab lunch and take care of business.

    Our young people are already hard at work, or are already in competitions: Cross Country, Tennis, Volleyball, Football, and our Wolf Band & Scarlets Dance Team. Others gearing up are Theatre, Swimming, and Golf. We appreciate all of our coaches and leaders for creating a safe, exciting, and fun experience for our Wolf Pack. 

     

    Senior Celebration

    Parents of the Class of 2020: Senior Celebration is in the works!
