Morning Drop Off Signs
Signs will be out during morning drop off time. If your student is late to school they MUST be signed into the office by an adult.
It is truly an honor to serve as principal of Wills Point Junior High. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you, as part of our educational family, to another wonderful school year. Whether this is your first time, or you are a returning family, we are proud to have you at Wills Point Junior High School.
I look forward to working alongside you as parents and community members as we strive as a team to help every student reach their full potential and build future leaders. We invite you to join us at extra-curricular events, as well as campus events as we showcase the talents of students at Wills Point Junior High School. The students here are truly a tribute to the shared partnerships between community and school.
Parents, please take time to review your child’s grades on the Parent Portal and talk with your children about their school experiences. Your interest and concern in their school progress will motivate them to do their best. Also, maintain contact with your child’s teachers and staff members to establish a successful home/school connection.
I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year.
Casey Cochran, Princpal
