The BHS band was competing at the Bands of America Super Region in Indianapolis last week so the bands from Fulbright, Lincoln, and Washington got the opportunity to perform under the lights last Friday night. It was a blast for our band students and really helped maintain the electric atmosphere that Tiger Stadium has become know for. Way to go band!

Congratulations Mr. Price!!!

It’s been another great week here at WJHS.
Mrs. Judy Marquess, Executive Director of Secondary Instruction, helped top it off with her visit this morning.
As usual, Judy was very complimentary of what she saw in the classrooms that we visited- engaged students, having fun, AND learning.
Mrs. Marquess and I encountered laughter in virtually every classroom that we visited this morning. It wasn't “off topic” laughter but genuine happiness about what they were accomplishing within the lessons.
Students were more than happy to share what they were doing and why they were doing it.
Our students are so lucky to have teachers that strive to incorporate real world activities and scenarios and provide students an opportunity to display their knowledge in ways other than traditional paper and pen tests, worksheets, etc.
I appreciate the effort that you put into teaching each week.
Have a great weekend!

Today at WJHS our students honored Floyd Smith by sharing words of encouragement to his family through a graffiti wall, creating bracelets to wear to show support for our Wildcat community, raising approximately $1000 to give to Floyd's family by participating in a hat day, and planting a memorial tree on the front lawn of WJHS as a lasting symbol. Our hope is that through these actions and symbols, we will honor the great impact that Floyd had on us as individuals and as a Wildcat community.
Today Rob and Miguel, important members of our WJHS family, were recognized for their outstanding work. No only do they model the Wildcat Way for our students, but they keep our facilities up and running and we'd be lost without them! Thanks to both of them!
