From Katy Huebner – English Department Chair
The tradition continues! Once again our students will contribute refreshments and supplies to the Emily Ann Trail of Lights through their English classes. Donations will earn students one extra-credit test grade to count during the THIRD six weeks. Contributions will be accepted through Friday, November 15th and are divided among the grades as follows:

Sixth grade – one bag of LARGE marshmallows

Seventh grade – one box of instant hot chocolate

Eighth grade – one package of 8 oz foam cups or one package of black stir sticks

Thank you in advance for your help in making the holiday at the Trail of Lights merry and bright.

From Owen Baldwin – Transportation Director for WISD
If your child is not normally a bus rider and would like to ride home with a friend for the afternoon you must call the bus barn first to see if there is availability. Several of our buses are already at rider capacity and there may not be a seat available for another student. Please contact us at the bus barn at 512-847-2781.
