    Odyssey of the Mind!

    3rd to 5th graders ... are you interested in Odyssey of the Mind but missed the deadline to join?   You're in luck!   

    Our team of six students has dropped down to only two participants, who both really want to do this activity. We are in need of at least 3 more members, and would be fantastic if we could get 5. If you're not familiar with OM, it's a student driven cooperative problem solving competition, which builds wonderful skills - teamwork, communication, creativity. You can expect weekly meetings (probably before school), and after the New Year, the pace will pick up a little through the competition, which is the first Saturday of March.      

    If you are interested in joining our team, please email Emily Dunn (edunn377@yahoo.com) and Carol Winter (cswinter@teracom.com) for more information.

    Here Comes the Bus App

    Wake County has a new way for parents to receive information about bus arrivals! The Here Comes the Bus app translates GPS data into an easy to use map that works on a computer, tablet or smartphone. It allows you to see where the bus is and how close it is to your stop. You can sign up for Here Comes the Bus at https://herecomesthebus.com/getting-started/. You will need the district code (67500) and your student’s ID number to sign up. For your smartphone or tablet, download the app from the App Store or Google Play.
