Students & Parents Home

January 19, 2018

The icy weather gave us a couple of unexpected days off this week. But, hopefully everyone is safe and warm. Many of you have been asking about make-up days. Once we receive official word from the District, we will pass that information to you.  

The academic UIL meet will be held Saturday, January 27th at Lamar Junior High starting at 9:00 a.m. Participants should arrive in the back of Wertheimer by 7:30 a.m. to board the bus to Lamar JH. Students should return to Wertheimer around 2:00 p.m. However, parents may pick-up their child after his/her competition by exiting their vehicle and signing-out their child with a Wertheimer staff member in the Lamar JH gym.  If your child was chosen for a competition, he/she will receive permission forms and more information today. Be sure to turn signed forms in to Coach McDonald as soon as possible.

It is hard to believe that seventh grade course selection is just a few weeks away. Mark your calendar. Briscoe JH will be holding a Parent Information Meeting regarding seventh grade course selection on Tuesday, February 6th at 6:00 p.m. in the Briscoe JH Forum.

Foster High School will be hosting an HB5 Course Preview Night on January 29, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. This is a great opportunity to learn about the different endorsements and programs offered in high school. Teachers and student ambassadors from each endorsement will be on site to answer questions and showcase their areas of expertise.

Mrs. Smith, our Librarian, is starting an after-school club called “Maker Space Mondays”. The club will meet on Monday afternoons from 3:30 – 4:45 in the library. The club will be involved in activities that include learning how to use Paper Circuits electrical circuits, 3D printer, Keva planks, LEGOS, Silhouette Cameo, Spheros, Makey Makey kits and lots of other activities. There is a $20 fee to cover the cost of the consumable supplies. Please see the attached application for more details. Permission form and money can be brought to the meeting on Monday if you wish to participate in the first session.
