By now, you should have been offered the opportunity to attend a parent conference with your child's teacher. Teachers are offering parent conferences throughout the week and most teachers are holding them on Wednesday evening by appointment. You will also receive your child's report card. If you have not registered for Parent Portal and logged onto Parent Portal, we are asking that you do so to monitor your child's attendance and academics in between progress reports and report cards. On Thursday, at 5:00 p.m., the Woodrow Wilson High School Homecoming Parade will begin at Woodrow Wilson High School then wind through the Lakewood shopping area and back to the high school. Our hope is to have the highest family involvement compared to any elementary schools in our feeder pattern. Please come show everyone how much spirit we have at Stonewall Jackson! Friday is Fair Day, so your child will come home with a complimentary fair ticket. There is no school on Friday. We hope to see you at the Woodrow Wilson Homecoming Game at Franklin Field at 7:30 p.m. on Friday night!
Friday is Elementary School Fair Day - there is NO SCHOOL!

Stonewall Jackson Families:
Attached is a revised version of the DISD Board Approved Resolution regarding our school's name change. The timeline has been updated, allowing more time for us to decide on a new name. Names are being accepted through October 15th, but prefer they be submitted as soon as possible, so they can be researched prior to our School Renaming Committee meetings.
Please read the attached Board Policy. If you would like to submit a name for the renaming committee to consider, please include the potential name, all required information listed on the CW (EXHIBIT) form and e-mail the information to the following three people by Sunday, October 15th.
All you need to do is sign in when you come to volunteer and we'll log your hours for you!!! Volunteering from home? NO PROBLEM! Simply log your hours worked in the log book then next time you are in the Office and we'll get those hours in the system!
