    Campus Highlights:

  • Dual Language Program: Wrenn's Dual Language Program consists of students taking Dual Language Science in 6th-8th grade, 6th Grade Social Studies is another option during 6th grade, and 6th-8th grade Spanish I, II, and III. Their entire instruction is in Spanish in these courses. Our dual language students have taken the AP Spanish Language and Culture test for the last 3 years. When they take this AP exam and score a 3 or higher, they receive high school and college credit for Spanish. In the years listed, we had the following percent of students pass with a 3 or higher: 2015 - 80% pass; 2016 - 81% pass; and 2017-62% (as 6th graders, these students were not offered dual language at Wrenn due to attending the 6th grade Academy. In the past, we have had approximately 20-27 students take the exam each year, but this year we will have 50 students take the test!
  • Parent Engagement: Our parent liaison and faculty do a wonderful job promoting parental engagement at the campus. We have a strong PTSA on campus in which parents and students are actively engaged in a variety of ways to volunteer and support our students on campus. We host monthly classes on Nutrition, Super Reader Academy, Coffee with the Principal, Painting with Wrenn and Literacy Nights for parents to participate in a variety of academic activities with their children. We also hold bi-weekly ESL classes for our parents. Our parents and PTSA members volunteer to help at the campus doing lunch duty, helping with the drumline in the band, going on field trips, hosting concessions, chaperoning dances, help us celebrate students and staff through PBIS activities, serve on the CPOC committee and volunteer to support us with community events. We have also started to engage our families through providing activities for the students in each content area to do monthly with their families at home as well.
  • Literacy across the curriculum: Students are engaged in reading and writing activities in all content and elective classes weekly. The entire faculty has been engaged in professional development and PLCs on how to effectively have students engaged in reading and writing across all content areas. They have been working diligently to embed writing each class period and to encourage journal writing. Our students are encouraged to read daily in breakfast time and we have monthly "Super Reader" lessons that counselors develop to understand the 7 strengths that build the love for reading and building character. Students are encouraged to make independent choices about what they read. Teachers have libraries in their classrooms that encourage student choice. At each literacy night, families are encouraged to take free books that have been donated.
  • Capturing Kids Hearts; Capturing Kids Heart is built into everything we do at Wrenn. We are building relationships with students to capture their hearts so that we can capture their minds. Students are greeted each period of the day with a handshake at the door by their teachers. Social contracts are in each classroom and were created by each period of students. Students understand the signals used by the teachers to capture their attention and to take ownership of assisting to help keep all students in line with the social contracts. The campus has embraced "Good Things" in which students share daily good things that they are doing or that is happening in their personal lives. We do this at campus faculty meetings as well.
  • Extra-Curricular Activity and Extended day programs: Our students at Wrenn are involved in a multitude of extra-curricular activities. We offer Athletics, UIL Academics, PALS league, One-Act Play, Chess Club, Robotics, Coding Club, Student Council, NJHS, Kids in the Kitchen, Cheerleading, Gardening Club, Wrenn Power Lifting Crew, Girl Scouts, Art Club, Anime Club, Mariachi, Band, Random Acts of Kindness Club, Spanish Club and Film Makers club. All clubs are encouraged to do community service and outreach projects. Many of our organizations have donated their time helping with the community toy drive, food drives, cleaning the nearby park and areas, and performing at a variety of community events. There are approximately 350 students involved in extra-curricular activities. We also host Weird Science Friday Nights, and Saturday Schools. We typically have about 100 students attend these fun packed extended learning events. Students learn through a multitude of hands-on activities, games, and experiments. We also have the clubs and organizations help host a campus Health and Fitness Fair during the spring semester.
