    Physicals for next school year.....If your child is going to be in Athletics, Cheer, or Lionettes they are required to have a 2017-2018  physical on file for next school year. The physical must:
    • Be on a district 2017-18 physical form.....Here is the correct form: Humble ISD Physical 17-18
    • Be conducted AFTER February 1, 2017
    • Have the date of examination with clearance
    • Have a physician's stamp  
    On Monday, April 10th, the coaches will take current PE students on buses after school to SCHS to get their physicals. This is not mandatory but is an easy way to get the physical done.   The cost is $20 and the students will need to be picked up at SCHS when they are finished.  If your child needs a physical but is not currently enrolled in PE they can still go to SCHS that afternoon to get their physical but will need their own transportation. 
     
    Students currently in athletics will get their physicals done during class.

    WMS ANNUAL FUND DONATIONS
    Please go to this link WMS ANNUAL FUND to learn more about donating money to WMS. Money raised will go towards three key areas for our WMS students:
    • Technology such as chromebooks, computers and iPads; Currently, we areblessed with 6 iPad carts and 2 Chromebook carts (180 iPads and 60 Chromebooks but wehave 1,600 Students that share those 240 devices)
    • Professional Development for teachers in technology: Having technology is only  beneficial if those teaching the students are knowledgeable as to the use of the devices. Google and Apple training for teachers is essential in ensuring the technology is used to the greatest potential. 
    • Fine Art and Extra-Curricular enhancement: Student involvement is critical to the success of Woodcreek; therefore, our sponsors will be able to utilize annual funds to build, create and improve conditions for our students.
    Thank you in advance for your donation!
