Email and Discussion Lists

PTSA Bulletin Board

The PTSA Bulletin Board (wjptsa@yahoogroups.com) distributes informal email information from school, staff and parent organizations relating to official PTSA, Booster, Education Foundation and WJ events. All members of the WJ community are strongly encouraged to subscribe to this valuable communication resource! While the school will place notices on wjptsa@yahoogroups.com, it is only an informal means of distributing information and does not supplant other communications from Montgomery County Public Schools. If you have a school-related question but are not sure where it should be sent, please email the WJ Ombudsman at: questions@walterjohnson.com. 

All parents and students are encouraged to begin a dialogue with their Counselors and/or their grade level Assistant Principals. These staff members are the very best resources for getting questions answered about school policies and practices. It is never too early to build these relationships.
