     WCPSS Transportation is making improvements Jan. 31 to the online communication system that families use to request service.The most important change for parents requires they provide a valid student ID when using the Transportation web page to submit questions about their students’ bus service. The valid student ID and matching student name must be provided to submit the request.Schools provide families the students ID, which can be found online in Home Base, on report cards or from teachers or data managers.  
    Please remember that yearbook orders and Boosterthon pledges are due tomorrow.
    Parents, please also be aware that 2nd quarter report cards will be coming home this Friday, Feb. 3rd.  Please make sure that you take this opportunity to review your child's progress with them.  Please contact your child's teacher/counselor if you would like to schedule a conference.

It is this year’s main fundraiser.  For those of you unfamiliar with Boosterthon, it’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally (on January 9th), then families will have time to get pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on January 19th. Our big goal  is to raise funds for Playgrounds and Technology.

    *Don't forget that TEK Clubs are coming to Wakefield this Winter! Clubs will run on Wednesdays for 6 weeks from 4:15-5:30 Feb 8- March 15. Please see the flyer that went home with your child before the break for after school club options.

    *And as a reminder (in light of the possible weather we may be having this coming weekend and or in the future), please make sure that you are monitoring the district website, your local source of news or sign up to receive notifications from WCPSS for school delays or cancellations.  Our school will not be sending out notices/phone calls of cancellation or delays due to the influx of emergency service information that may be going out at the same time.
