  • GLOW-Gram: All Families (10/12/2017)

    • DATE CORRECTION:   The PTA Pumpkin Festival is Wednesday, October 25th, from 6-8:00.  


    • 16-17 approved volunteers who have not yet updated their WCPSS Volunteer Registration need to go to any WCPSS school & update their volunteer request as soon as possible.  If you do not update your request by October 31st, you will need to re-enroll, and this will delay your ability to continue as a volunteer until you are again approved by WCPSS.   (Note: The new enrollment & re-enrollment processes take 7-10 working days to secure approval.  Whereas, a simple renewal before October 31st is much quicker!)
