PTSA Fundraiser Day of Awesomeness

All students will be participating in the PTSA Day of Awesomeness this Monday, November 7th.  As a conclusion to our PTSA fundraiser and meeting our goal, students will have an hour to celebrate their accomplishments.  The event will be held outside and there will be inflatables for students to use, so please have your student bring an extra pair of socks for after the event, as they will not be able to wear their shoes on the inflatables.  A special thank you to our PTSA for also making Kona Ice available to every student as a celebration for the successful conclusion to our first quarter.


NC Check-Ins: WCPSS Chromebook Devices Needed

As we are beginning to take the NC Check-Ins, students will need their WCPSS Chromebooks in order to access the test. If a student has a WCPSS Chromebook, they will need to bring that with them to school on testing days. The next test is Thursday, November 17th. This is for all 6-8 students. If a student does not have WCPSS Device, we will have a plan in place for them.
