    THANK YOU PTA!  Our Year 3 students enjoyed a fantastic Starry Night thanks to the generosity of our PTA.  This year’s Year 3 Dance was a wonderful event, enjoyed by all.  Our PTA funds this dance entirely, and it marks the first of many end of year celebrations for our 8th graders as they conclude their middle school years!  Special thanks to the moms and dads who showed up Friday afternoon to transform our cafeteria into an event venue and to those that came afterwards to clean up!  I am especially blessed by our parents and PTA. 

     

     

    Year 3 Chromebook return:  All Year 3 students must return their Chromebooks and chargers before the last day of school. This is necessary for them to receive a new Chromebook in high school.

    Library books:  Library books are past due.  Please remind your student to bring back all library books before the end of the school year.

    Summer Sun Bucks Food Program! SUN Bucks will provide grocery-buying benefits to qualifying families with school-aged children during the summer months. Benefits can be used to buy healthy food at places like grocery stores, farmers markets, and some online retailers.  Some families will have to apply for the SUN Bucks program, but many students will automatically qualify for the program. Children will automatically qualify if they already participate in any of the following programs:

    • Free or Reduced-Price (FRP) meals at school because they have an approved FRP application at school, or
    • Food and Nutrition Services (FNS, food stamps), or
    • Work First (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), cash assistance), or
    • Medicaid with household income below 185% of the federal poverty level, or
    • Foster care.

      More information is available HERE

     

     

    EOG/EOC testing continues this week. Make ups may continue past June 7 if students are absent.

     

    I am so proud of our students for the effort they demonstrated last week during testing.  Students were focused and took time to do their best!  It was great to see and hear how confident they felt after testing when I was with them in the cafeteria!    

     

    Important Information about EOG/EOC Testing:

    • Students are expected to bring their charged Wake County Chromebooks and their charger on testing days. All testing will be online and personal computers are not permitted.
    • We are not permitted to interrupt the testing setting and are not able to check students out until school-wide testing ends at approximately 12:30 each day. This includes all students on campus, even if they are not testing that day.   
    • As you are planning appointments for your child, you will want to consult the testing schedule. 
    • Fitbits, Apple Watches, airpods and smart devices and watches are not permitted in the testing room.  Have students keep these items at home during testing.
    • Cell phones must be turned off and put away for the entirety of the testing session
