    To my dismay my son was rezoned from WRHS to Cypress, he is a junior, he was removed from his friends that he followed since JLMS. I feel that this school concentrates on the middle school aspect more than the high school. This is supposed to be the best years of his life but instead my son can’t wait to leave school and participate in activities of WRHS with his friends. Have you forgotten about the high school kids. I am saddened that it seems like more of a middle school than a high school. I am saddened for him that he is missing out on “high school” activities! I think administration needs to take a step back and reflect on their high school years, do you feel like you are giving those high school students those same best years? I think not. I feel sorry for these HS kids as they are missing out in their high school experience at Cypress Creek. I wish my son were back at WRHS so he could experience a real high school. Just for the record, these are the feelings of other parents that I speak to that attend Cypress. Hopefully you can make changes to make these high school students feel like they are truly in HS and not in middle school!

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. This school year Journalism is only a high school class and the high schoolers pick the events they cover on campus. The majority of the published articles are written by high schoolers and almost all of the sports coverage is on high school since the staff writers are all high school students. We fluctuate between middle and high school events. For example, Battle of the Belts was a high school only event this week, but the dance was middle school only. We have Spring Howl next week which is both. Sometimes we just post pictures on Twitter, sometimes it’s a full newspaper write-up, it just depends on the coverage the student-journalist got. We have a “Submit a Letter” tab at the top of the newspaper for suggestions on coverage and they can also tag us on tweets @CCMHSHOWLER. Another great option is to speak to Student Government and reach out to your son’s class president, too. We try to cover as many things as we can. Specifics are also helpful so we don’t miss something in the future. Would you mind emailing me at [email protected] and letting me know what events we missed covering so we can avoid missing them in the future?
    Thank you again for reaching out. –Passardi

    I apologize to you as I intended this to be read by administration. It was in no way directed to you. It was a general observation from myself and other parents to bring awareness to administration.
