    Mrs. Pierce’s Message (click for video message summarizing Friday Folder Information)

    *Note that Google Meet had a glitch and it cut off right at the end of the PTA info. I added my concluding comments below:) 

    Please be aware that we are currently updating all information and documents for the 22-23 school year. There are MANY updates due to the lifting of COVID procedures and restrictions and these updates take time. Our goal is to have as much updated as possible and loaded to the FWES Website by August 1st; however, we will load them as they are ready so you can check the website throughout July. 

    Before School Registration is with the Taylor YMCA and the program and registration information is in the Parent section of the FWES Website and available now. 

    After School Registration materials are being updated for 2022-23 and dates for registration at FWES are being determined. We will have all of that information available by August 1st. There will be an online "line up" to register process and then in person days prior to the start of the school year (likely the week of August 8th) for bringing payment and registration documents. The program does require paper completion of documents and a check/money order, so registration must be in person. 

    Be sure to follow us on Twitter @fwesibpyp to meet the new staff joining our team this year. We will start sharing their photos and information next week!

    Apply for free and reduced-price school meals for 2022-23

      • All students currently receive free school meals supported by federal funding due to the pandemic. This funding is set to end on June 30, 2022. In order to receive free or reduced-price meals for next school year, families need to submit a meal benefits application.

    Volunteers in 2022-23- 

    All approved volunteers in the 2021-22 school year do NOT need to reactivate to volunteer in 22-23. If you are an approved volunteer- you received an email from Mrs. Pierce on Thursday, July 7, 2022 sharing your status with you. 

    If you DID NOT get an email from Mrs. Pierce- you are not yet an approved registered volunteer and will need to complete the process to be a volunteer. 

    The new system takes longer than in prior years, so those family members interested in getting involved early- like PTA help with Open House, PTA projects, classroom extra hands, library helpers, etc… should register during the summer months if at all possible. 

    Registration must be completed at a WCPSS Work Location, like FWES or another school or central office if it is closer to your home or work. Please review FWES Office Hours before planning a trip to the school to register. 

    *Note that WCPSS Employees are also required to register if they plan to volunteer in a school with their personal children.

    Club Sponsor Interest for 2022-23- We are hoping to get some clubs up and running again in the 2022-23 school year. We have been fortunate in the past to have parent and grandparent volunteers give their time to provide an inquiry experience to our students before or after school. Please review the information in the link and let us know if you would be interested in this wonderful volunteer opportunity. Filling out the form is not a commitment but we will reach back out in September with all the details to begin to confirm with all those who are interested. We will aim to begin clubs mid to late October, 2022. 

    *If you are not an approved volunteer and want to help with clubs- please see info above about Volunteer Registration.

    Participate International Teachers- Furniture or Household Goods Donations 

    I am very excited to share that we will be welcoming 3 new Participate (formerly VIF) teachers to our staff for the 2022-23 school year. These teachers are international teachers who obtain NC Teaching Licensure and a specialized work visa to travel, live and teach in the United States. We are welcoming teachers from Scotland, The Bahamas and Honduras next year! 

    These teachers will arrive on August 5th to NC with two suitcases…. And then have to begin the process of finding a place to live, getting a drivers license/bank account/social security number AND figuring out how to set up a household (furniture, kitchen supplies, towels, etc.) from scratch. All of this and be ready to start work at FWES on August 17th. 

    We have had luck in the past in letting our school community know that we will be taking gently used household items in good condition to share with our new teachers to help them get on their feet. Feel free to share the need with your neighbors and friends if they are cleaning out, too- but a reminder we are not a thrift store and only need good condition and clean items. We invite you (or your friends) to bring it to FWES and let us store it in the cafeteria this summer until our teachers arrive. Please call the office (919-460-3469) before coming or to schedule a drop off time so we have someone present. If you cannot come between 8:30am-3:30pm- we can set up an evening or weekend drop off time, too. 

    • Used Items in good condition to consider donating: 
      • Furniture (living room, dining room, office/desk/chair, dresser/chest, side tables- no mattresses please) 
      • Lamps, Mirrors, Wall Art
      • Clean Dishes, Glassware and Silverware
      • Clean Pots, Baking Pans and Utensils
      • Good CLEAN Condition counter appliances (Coffee Maker, Electric Kettle, Toaster, etc.)
