    2018-2019 School Year

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome Wolverines and parents to the 2018-19 school year!  It is with great excitement and honor that I have the opportunity to serve as principal for an eighth year.  As a former Watson student myself, I know what a special place Watson Junior High School is and how much potential it has to build foundations for our students’ futures.  Watson continues to be rated as one of the high performance achieving schools in the area of academic growth according to the Colorado State Performance Indicators and remains a top choice for junior high students looking to grow and develop their future potential. 

    At Watson, we have summarized our mission into a single statement; “Building real relationships, strong character, and a college/career ready foundation for future leaders.”  I firmly believe in that mission for Watson Junior High.  At the junior high level, students are building foundations for their futures and it is critical that those foundations become balanced with the right essentials.  At Watson, each of our teachers work to build positive real relationships with our students.  We believe that out of relationships students will be motivated to learn at much higher levels.  We also believe in building strong character to help our young people become responsible, hard-working, productive citizens.  Too often, building a strong positive character is not a priority in our schools and without good character, students miss the true reasons to perform well, learn and become successful.  Finally, we believe in building a solid college/career ready foundation for our students through our rigorous academia.  Students need to be challenged with their learning and grow to become lifelong learners.  Our goal at Watson is to ensure that students have a foundation that will ready them for college level academics at the High School level and beyond.  We continue to work at creating an environment where students can strive to reach their highest potential, including their college and career plans.

    We are also very excited that this year Watson will continue to offer Pre-AP courses in all core subject areas for seventh and eighth grade.  In addition, we will continue to offer Pre-AP courses for Math and Language Arts for sixth grade.  We will also continue to offer advanced band and orchestra classes.  These courses will provide our students an opportunity to challenge themselves and will help them to build critical thinking skills.  We will be selecting students based on assessment scores and staff recommendations, but if you feel that your student might be interested in taking one of these courses, contact one of the counselors at Watson for more information. 

    I encourage you to take time to visit our website; it will have the most up-to-date information posted.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please call us at 391-3255.  We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you around Watson!

    Sincerely,

    Justin Signature

    Mr. Justin D. Lee

    Principal

    Watson Junior High
