PRINCIPAL MESSAGE

Dear Parents, This week has been Student Appreciation Week, and I would just like to say thank you again for choosing our school. Your child is very special to us at WCP, and we are committed to service of our mission in the name of kids. Next week is our IA testing week which requires that students study diligently to stay on track with content that is essential for each course. Please speak with your son/daughter about how they are preparing for our exams. As a reminder, we have school through December 21st which is a Wednesday. Please make any travel plans around our instructional days. Thank you, Mrs. Sarinana

We are excited to invite all College Prep parents to attend the very first Principal’s Forum. Thursday, December 15, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. This is an opportunity for College Prep parents to sit down with Principal Leanna Sarinana and learn about the great things going on academically at Weslaco CP. These meetings are focused purely on academics. If you are interested in attending, Please RSVP with Amanda Garza 956-373-7198. Due to limited space we will reserve space for the first 20 parents who RSVP. If you are unable to attend do not worry this is one of many to come. Future dates will be forthcoming.
