We hope everyone enjoyed the last two weeks with family and friends! Weatherford ISD schools resume tomorrow and will operate with a normal schedule. Temperatures are expected to be in the teens tomorrow morning with a wind chill in the single digits. Parents are encouraged to be sure their children are dressed warmly.
Weatherford High School students will pick up new spring semester schedules Monday morning:
• Seniors will pick up schedules in Gym B

We look forward our seeing our Kangaroo family tomorrow!

As a long-time educator, Helen Spivey has crafted many lessons and traditions in her years at Weatherford ISD.
The librarian at Curtis and Tison for many years before becoming a mentor to incoming teachers and retiring in 2000, Spivey has now created a new tradition — one that combines reading, family and students.
Winners of Tuesday's sixth grade National Geographic Bee at Bill Wright Elementary included Julielle Nguyen, first place; Ana Luna, second place; and Braden Orona, third place.
The moderator for the event was Weatherford ISD Instructional Generalist and State Board of Education Member Pat Hardy. Wright Elementary sixth grade social studies teacher Casey Goff organized the event.

Members of the Wright Singers Fifth Grade Choir traveled around the Weatherford community singing carols on Tuesday.
The Wright Singers, under the direction of Janet Scoggins, performed for the Parker County Courthouse Annex, Weatherford Police Department, Autumn Hills Manor, and Keeneland Nursing Home (courtesy photos).
Members of the Seguin Elementary Student Council organized a food drive for the Center of Hope to collect breakfast items for the holidays.
