“Eyes Wide Open”

Thursday Feb. 5th 7pm in the High School Auditorium


This year's program entitled, Eye's Wide Open, "The 21st Century Generation of Sex, Drugs, and Communicating," will address the following issues our teens may be facing today: 

·        Problems and medical conditions sexually active teens currently deal with / or need to be aware of

·        How young is the sexually active kid today? Types of drugs being distributed in our community

·        Where trafficking and transactions are most prevalent

·        Who's dealing what to whom? When did our kid's start taking drugs

·        Actions, offenses, penalties and criminal charges

·        Preventive measures being done right now to stop the drugs from entering our school campuses, neighborhood parks, and community

·        Sex-ting, Cyber bullying, Twitter, FaceBook and Snapchat. What is it? Is my child the victim/perpetrator? What are my child's rights 

Most importantly our guest speakers will be on hand and ready to respond to your "hard to ask questions", with HONEST and FACTUAL ANSWERS 

Please join us in raising consciousness and becoming better informed parents, teen advocates, and community supporters. We respectfully ask that children (13 and younger) not attend as some of the content presented may not be appropriate for them.

Become an Approved Conroe ISD Volunteer:


The Conroe Independent School District values the contributions made by its many volunteers who diligently work to support our outstanding students, teachers, and programs. It is our goal to provide a safe environment for our students and visitors. Since 2007, we require all school volunteers to complete a volunteer application online. In completing the application, volunteers will be submitting information for the purpose of conducting a criminal history check. 


If you are interested in volunteering on one of our campuses, please complete the volunteer application by  clicking here 


We appreciate your understanding and value your time and effort as a volunteer. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Peggy Blake at 936-709-7728 or your campus for more information. Computers are also available at your student's campus if you should need internet access.






In January and February the clinic will be conducting Spinal Screening for all 9th grade students.  You may recall this screening was also performed for 6th grade. This will be the final screening. The purpose of spinal screening is to detect the signs of abnormal curves of the spine at their earliest stages so that the need for treatment can be determined. Spinal screening is part of an Athletic Physical, so all students with a physical on file in the Training room are exempt from screening. Screening will be conducted during PE/Dance classes when possible. No special clothing is required.  If you have any questions or concerns please call the Clinic and speak with the Nurse, Leslie Brewer, RN



Calling all talent!  Calling all volunteers!

RE: Amendment to The Woodlands College Park High School Student Handbook

Date: November 10, 2014

The following amendments to The Woodlands College Park High School Student Handbook are effective immediately.

1.      The following section will replace “Parking Regulations” in The Woodlands College Park High School Student Handbook:


      Parking Regulations

Parking at College Park High School is a privilege. Spaces are limited and will be given out using a priority selection process.


Priority for parking spaces will be in the following order:

1.      Seniors and Juniors that have been NEAT (Never Ever Absent or Tardy) for the entire Spring 2015 semester will receive first priority for parking. Seniors and then Juniors.


2.      Seniors and Juniors with 3 or fewer absences from the previous (Spring 2015) semester. Seniors and then Juniors will receive parking spaces per number of absences up to 3. 1 absence has priority over 2 absences and so on.


    Students who choose to share a parking space with another licensed junior or senior student. Senior sharers will receive     priority followed by Junior sharers. If either of the sharing drivers is a Senior, they will receive the better parking spot.

3.       Senior singles


4.      Junior singles.


Absences not counted in semester total: Health Care Professional (HCP), Field Trip (FT), UIL events (UIL), Religious Holidays (REL), Extra-Curricular (EC), Special Event on Campus (SEV), Funeral (FRL), College Visit (CV).



A vehicle registration application will be filled out by each student wanting to receive a parking permit. All students must attend the Drivers Safety and Orientation course each year before a parking permit will be issued. Cost of the parking tag is $75.00 and must be paid before the tag can be issued.



v Must have parking permit displayed (rearview mirror) – only one tag is issued for each space

v Only vehicles registered for that space will be allowed topark in that space.

v New vehicles must be registered before school starts at 7:20 with the Associate Principal for Administration.

v Student’s will not be given a pass to class and can be considered tardy or absent for not following this policy.

v No parking in handicap spaces without a tag from the Associate Principal for Administration.

v Student vehicles will be towed if parked in fire zones, bus ramps or visitor parking area.

v Speed limit for all parking lots is 10 mph.

v While in the parking lot all occupants of vehicles shall be seated and wear safety belts (cannot ride in beds of pickups or on tops of vehicles)

v A temporary space will not be given for a student who has missed the bus, missed their ride with a partner etc.

v No students are to park in visitors parking for any reason

v If a student registers for a parking space after the school year has begun and has one truancy on record he/she may be issued a parking space but it will be revoked for any one violation after the effective date of issuance.


Parking at The Woodlands College Park High School is a privilege and not a right. Conroe I.S.D. provides bus transportation. Therefore, we are not obligated to furnish parking for students. Parking privileges are only for registered students at their respective campuses. A parking fee is charged at TWCPHS. If parking is permanently suspended during the school year no money will be refunded at any time. Any vehicle booted will receive a $10.00 fine plus suspension. Additional parking suspensions/sanctions may be assigned at the discretion of the grade level principals.



Peer Tutoring will be available every Tuesday-Thursdays.  All subjects will be tutored, the hours are 2:45pm-4:30 pm in room 1608.
