September 11th WFMS Family Message

 

Good afternoon WFMS families,

 

Meet the Teacher

Our fall Meet the Teacher night will be this Thursday from 4:30pm - 6:00pm.  Please do not park in the bus lot (second entrance to the school), as buses will be arriving back to our campus and this will block their access.  This will be a free-flowing event where you can visit your student’s teachers and learn about their classes.  Please bring a copy of your student’s schedule with you.

 

Headphones

All students should have headphones/earbuds in order to listen to assigned videos in class and/or take assessments. Please be sure that your child has access to these and has them in their backpacks daily.  These are only allowed in classrooms when teachers have given permission for a specific assignment.  Students should not have them in the hallways or classrooms where the teacher has not given permission.

 

FastBridge

FastBridge is a universal screening tool that will be given to all middle school students which will allow us to gain more insight into their reading abilities. This assessment will be given in September, December, and April. All students will need headphones in order to take this assessment. The assessment will be given on the following days:

  • 6th grade - Wednesday, September 14th

  • 7th grade - Thursday, September 15th

  • 8th grade - Friday, September 16th

 

7th grade Immunization Records

Students who have not submitted their immunization records received a separate email this past Wednesday.  North Carolina law requires that all rising 7th graders present proof of receiving the Tdap and meningococcal immunizations by September 27th.  If your child doesn't submit by the deadline, they will be excluded from school until the records have been updated with proof of immunization.  WFMS must have a copy of your physician's record of these immunizations to update records.  Please share the updated records with Victoria Hughes (vhughes@wcpss.net).

 

Cell Phones

Thank you to our families for your support on our new cell phone procedures and expectations.  Students have been doing a great job of keeping these devices put away in the hallways and during instruction.  If you have not done so, please return the signed copy of the contract shared on the first day of school.
