Colt Families and Students,
I would personally
like to welcome each and every one of you back to school for the 2014-2015
school year. My name is Diana Wagner
and I am privileged to be your Principal and part of this school team and
family. This past week I have met
many of the new and returning students in both Weslaco College Prep and
Academy. Lots of time and energy has
been spent in preparing for the arrival of all our students and the
teachers are excited to begin working with your children. I am very pleased with how quickly the
students demonstrated the procedures and expectations set forth on the
first few days of school. I have visited every classroom this week and
spent time getting to know a lot of our students. I am quickly learning what wonderful
students we have at our campus.
Students have come up and introduced themselves to me, shared a
summertime event or asked questions about how I came to Weslaco. It is
encouraging to see how well everyone is adjusting to the “back to school”
rules of IDEA College Prep. We want
to welcome all the new students who have joined our Weslaco CP team and
family. This new group of students
has learned our culture in only a few days.
With the help of their teachers, they have adjusted to Weslaco CP
with ease. Our staff will continue
to work with them to ensure success.
Weslaco CP has its first group of FRESHMAN this year! We are thrilled to see our high school
students in their green walking proudly down the high school hallway. We look forward to creating lasting
traditions and setting the tone for our middle and academy students.

This week’s ninth grade colt of the week is Amanda Borjas. She has exemplified all of the core values, especially team and family. She has stepped up to help our new colts and has made them feel welcomed and at home. We are very proud and excited to have Amanda as a leader in the class of 2018.
