We hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe snow day. As a reminder, WCPSS is using “banked hours” to cover this day and there is not a make-up date.
Parent-Teacher Conference scheduled for Feb. 20, 2020 will not be rescheduled. We apologize in advance, but we will not reschedule this event. We are concerned that the new date selected may or may not allow families who signed up to attend. We are also challenged with trying to develop a new schedule with families cancelling, understandably, without a system for new families to sign up. Again, we appreciate the enthusiasm in which parents signed up and will reflect on our proposed parent-teacher structure when planning future events. Please know you are always welcome to schedule a conference with your child’s teacher. If you would like to schedule a conference, please email your child’s team leader or homeroom teacher. They will communicate with you and schedule a conference.
-Monday 3/9: Teacher Workday-No school
The School Dance sponsored by our Student Council will be rescheduled to March 27th.
The Neon Night dance will be held in the auxiliary gym. Doors will open at 6:45 to allow for a smoother entrance for students. Drop off and pickup will be based on students’ grade level. Sixth graders will carpool in front of the school and Seventh/ Eighth graders will use the bus lot on the side of the school for carpool. Students will be able to purchase at the door the evening of the dance. There will be separate doors for those needing tickets and for those who have already purchased them. Cost for tickets will be $5. Concessions will be sold during the dance as well.
Hoops for Heart- Due to school being canceled on Friday, we will be changing our last collection date for the American Heart Association (Hoops for Heart) to next Friday February 28th.
