    Carolina Hurricanes “Readvolution”

    The Carolina Hurricanes and the Wake County Public School Systems Strategic Plan of Vision 2020 are teaming up to bring “Readvolution” to all of our elementary schools. This partnership will support a community-wide literacy campaign around daily reading outside of school.

    All WCPSS elementary students will be given the challenge of 20 minutes of reading outside of the school day! The challenge will include an individual and school wide component as well as goals for each student.

    Visit http://hurricanes.com/WakeCounty to log in. On the website, click “Submit Reading Results”, to take you to the Readvolution app homepage. You will see the scoreboard and the option to log into your account using your WakeID username and password. After logging in, you will see your student dashboard.

    Students who achieve their reading goal of 1200 minutes by January 12, 2018 will be able to redeem a Hurricanes game ticket after the campaign has ended.

    Brassfield Math & Science Extravaganza Volunteers Needed

    The Brassfield Math & Science Extravaganza committee seeks 2 volunteers to join organizers John Jones and Jennifer Oldson. This year’s obligation will be light - simply shadow the current co-directors! Observe what currently is done, how it is done, and when it is done. In the hope that you stay with us the following year (2019) then, with John and Jennifer’s support, assume responsibility for some of the tasks as you become more comfortable. If, however, you do not want a mentoring period but are ready to become more actively engaged right now, then reach out to John Jones and he will get you started (he promises).

    This is a once per year commitment that supports not only the students and their interest in science but engages parents and guardians and guest exhibitors lifting the evening above a mere show and tell to become a Brassfield community extravaganza! To become a part of this great service to others please contact John Jones or Jennifer Oldson this week. John Jones - jt.jones@earthlink.net or Jennifer Oldson - joldsondvm@gmail.com

    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.
