8th Grade End of Year Celebration
Wake Forest Middle School will host a drive-thru celebration for our 8th grade students on Tuesday, June 9th from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. This event will be a time for our staff to celebrate the accomplishments of our 8th graders as they and their families drive through our carpool lane to be recognized. Students with last names between A-M will be from 5:00pm – 6:30pm and students with last names N-Z will be from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. We will utilize our entire carpool lane by the football field through the front of the school. Drivers should follow all traffic patterns and guidance from staff. All students and parents must remain in their cars as they drive-thru the line to be recognized. Staff will be appropriately spaced and follow all safety guidelines from the state and local government, including wearing personal protective gear such as a mask. When exiting the campus, the left turn lane will be blocked and all cars will be directed to turn right onto S. Main Street to keep traffic flowing smoothly.
Parents are welcome to decorate their cars and display their child’s name as they come through the line. This would assist our staff in cheering for your child by name as they come through.
Students needing to drop-off items from the checklist linked below or pick-up items such as their yearbook or athletics pictures are able to turn right into the bus parking lot after leaving the celebration to do so. We ask that you only make a right turn from the bus parking lot onto S. Main Street to assist with traffic flow.
The event will be held, rain or shine, so we hope you will make plans to attend and celebrate your child’s success at WFMS the past three years.
Collection/Return/Pick-Up of Items
Due to the unexpected closure of schools in March due to COVID-19, many end of year closing procedures did not occur for students and staff at WFMS. On Tuesday, June 9th, we will hold a drive-thru event in the bus loop area by the cafeteria for students and families in grades 6 and 7. Information regarding specifics around this event can be found by clicking the link below for times for each grade-level, items to be picked-up and collected.
Due to the restrictions and guidelines around COVID-19, students and parents will not be able to access the building. Staff will clean lockers and bag items left in lockers and label with student name prior to the event.
If you are not returning to a WCPSS school next year and you received a device or hotspot during the remote learning period, you will need to return the items to the school. If you will be attending WFMS or another WCPSS school next year, you do not need to return your device or hotspot at this time.
We will hold another event to allow for pick-up and collection of items on Thursday, June 11th from 9am-11am in the bus parking lot.
Reporting of Grades
Due to COVID-19, families will access their student’s grades through the Parent Portal in PowerSchool this year. Grades will be finalized on Friday, June 5th for students. If you do not have access to PowerSchool, you may request a copy of your report card by emailing our data manager, Sabrina Porcella at firstname.lastname@example.org. A copy of your child’s report card will be filed in their cumulative folder at the school, as a part of the annual end-of-year closing for student records.
