  • Promotion Ceremony Information

    Posted by Kelly Aman on 6/8/2022 5:00:00 PM

     

    Year 3 students should report to the 8th grade building no later than 8:15am for line up.  As a reminder, athletic attire is not appropriate for the ceremony. 

     

    Parking:  Parking is available in the bus parking lot, along the right side of carpool loop entrance and exit (but not immediately in front of the school as that is a fire lane) and in the cafeteria parking lot (about 30 spaces) where students were dropped off and picked up for the dance.  If you are parking along the right side of carpool, please park after 8:15 when our carpool is over.    

     

    Doors to the gym open at 8:15am.  Families should remain in their cars until that time.  As a reminder, our Year 1 and Year 2 students will be on campus tomorrow. 

     

    Flowers and Balloons are not permitted in the gymnasium. 

     

    Tickets are required for all attendees.  Each 8th grader received 3 tickets.  Individuals without a ticket will not be admitted. 

     

    Ask your child where they are seated so that you will know which side you want to sit on.

    Posted by Kelly Aman on 6/5/2022 6:00:00 AM

     

     

    THANKS to our PTA for hosting a fantastic Year 3 Dance on Friday night.  Students GLOWED the night away! 

     

     

    EOG Information:  All students will be taking EOG/EOC tests Tuesday, May 31 – Tuesday, June 7.  Make ups may continue past June 7 if students are absent.  Virtual Academy students must take EOGs/EOCs in person at West Millbrook.  Virtual Academy students should be dropped off by parents at the main office and we will assist them in locating their testing location.   Virtual Academy students may return all EL books when they come in for testing. 

     

    • Students report directly to their testing locations on test days and directly to on team locations on days their grade level is on team. 

     

    • Students are expected to bring their charged, Wake County Chromebooks on testing days. All testing will be online and personal computers are not permitted.

     

    • As a reminder we are not permitted to interrupt the testing setting and are not able to check students out until testing ends at approximately 12:30 each day. This includes all students on campus, even if they are not testing that day.     

     

    • Fitbits, Apple Watches and smart watches are not permitted in the testing room.  Cell phones are not permitted in the testing room.  Have students keep these items at home during testing. 

     

    • EOG score reports will be sent home with students on Wednesday.

     

     

    Yearbooks will be distributed to students on Tuesday.  Please make certain your student writes his/her name in ink on the inside cover, and remind him/her not to leave the yearbook unattended.  

     

     

    Patience, please!  During the last few days of school when students are enjoying year end activities outside of their normal classrooms and daily schedule, it is more difficult for us to locate them if you arrive to check them out of school.  Please be patient, especially with our front office staff, as they strive to provide you with excellent customer service.

  • Ms. Aman's May 1 Family Message

    Posted by Kelly Aman on 5/1/2022 7:00:00 AM

     

    School is closed for students on Monday, May 2 for teacher workday.  Students return to school at 8:15am on Tuesday. 

     

     

    Teacher Appreciation Week:  May 1 - 6 is Teacher Appreciation Week!  We celebrate and recognize our teachers this week for the incredible work they do each day!  I'd also like to thank the PTA for providing lunch for our school's support staff last week in honor of Administrative Professionals Week and thanks in advance for providing lunch this Wednesday for our fantastic teaching staff at West Millbrook.  

     

     

     

    Students Not Feeling Well:  It is imperative for families to check in with their children prior to sending them to school.  We are seeing a significant increase in the number of students going to the care center prior to 8:45am.  Students who are not well must remain at home.   

     

     

     

    Dress Code+:  Please check in with your student to ensure he/she is meeting dress code expectations.  Hats and sunglasses are not permitted inside buildings.  Pajamas and bedrooms shoes may not be worn at school.    All attire must meet WCPSS dress code expectations.  Cell phones must be off and stored in bookbags, unless otherwise directed by the classroom teacher. 

     

     

    Interims:  This is the final interim period for the 2021-22 school year.  All grades will be updated in PowerSchool by 5pm on Friday, May 6.  Please review your child’s interim grades to ensure they are meeting your academic expectations as we enter the final 4 weeks of school. 

     

     

    EOG Testing Window:  Students will be taking EOG/EOC tests Tuesday, May 31 – Tuesday, June 7.  Make ups may continue past June 7 if students are absent.  As you are planning appointments for your child in the coming weeks, you will want to consult the testing schedule.  As a reminder we are not permitted to interrupt the testing setting and are not able to check students out until testing ends at approximately 12:30 each day.    

     

     

     

    EOG Retesting Opportunity:    West Millbrook Magnet Middle School is committed to providing all students with an excellent education. At the end of the school year, your child will participate in the regular administration of North Carolina End-of-Grade (EOG) tests (Reading, Math and Science 8).  Students who score Level 3 or higher on these assessments are considered proficient. 

     

    Students who do not score a Level 3 or higher the EOG and pass the course have the option to participate in a Remediation and Re-administration opportunity on June 14 and 15. 

     

    Transportation will be provided, and breakfast and lunch will be available. 

     

    At this time, we are providing families with information about this opportunity. After students complete their EOGs we will determine which students are eligible and notify those families of their child’s eligibility to retest. 

     

    Please complete THIS FORM so that we know if you want your child to participate in retesting if they pass the class but do not earn at least a 3 on the EOG. 

     

     


    District Survey:  All families have received a link to the WCPSS Panorama survey.  The feedback you provide helps our district with strategic planning. 

     

     

    Chromebook Information for all families:  The Technology Resource Management Team will be contacting students, and parents/guardians via email about their student device to verify that they are using their assigned device. We will also ask students/parents to check that their device is in working order before summer and the transition to a new school year. Students are to keep their Chromebooks at the end of this school year unless the student is graduating or withdrawing from all WCPSS school sites.
