Letter from the Principal

Brandon Wojcik

Welcome to November, I hope this edition of The Perspective finds you well as we make the transition from fall to the dark days of winter.  By the time you read this article, we will be close to completing our first quarter of the school year.  The end of each marking period is a time for celebrating accomplishments for many of our students.  But for some, the thought of a parent or guardian getting the e-mail notifying them that grades are ready in the Parent Portal inspires fear and anxiety.  Our teachers, counselors and professionals do a wonderful job identifying students that need a little extra help to improve their level of achievement.  However, if you feel that your son or daughter is in need of some extra help in a subject or two, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

We have plenty of resources at our disposal for both long term and short term interventions.  Some of these interventions come in the form of organizational skills with counselors, AIS or extra help after school.  We are making a conscious effort to more frequently utilize our 10th period this year.  You may hear your child tell you that a teacher is asking them to stay after school for that period, which runs from 2:27 to 2:59 pm, in order to get some extra help or make up work from an absence.  Rest assured it is not disciplinary in nature, but simply another mechanism to keep our students from falling behind.  Every student is also afforded the opportunity to take the 3 o’clock bus home.

October has also been an extremely successful and exciting month here at NCJSHS athletically, and we are hoping to continue that tradition into November.  We are seeing hard work and dedication paying off for many of our athletic teams.  Both men’s and women’s varsity soccer teams have earned the right to a playoff berth this year.  And our girls Varsity Volleyball Team had an overall record of 18 and 1 and a league record 16 and 0. Their hard work and dedication has earned them a chance at the section finals which will be on Thursday, November 7th at 8:00 at JCC.  We wish them all the best of luck.

As always, I encourage you to give feedback on our school. I want to know what we can do better and your input is important to us. You can call me at school at 337-0101 or email me at bwojcik@northcollinscsd.org.  I appreciate your support and look forward to the bright future of North Collins Junior-Senior High School.

Best regards, 



Brandon F. Wojcik
Jr.-Sr. High School Principal
