M. Brunson's Principal Updates on July 21, 2019


It was great to see everyone at our Open House for Track 1, 2, and 3!  We look forward to serving your family this year and working with you to support the academic growth of your children.  If you have not already, please partner with us by joining our PTA.


Positivity Project Assembly

We had a very first Posivity Project assembly last week!  We are already focused on a mindset that  "Other People Matter".  Every day students will receive lessons to help them focus on:  Words and Actions, Cheer Successes, Support Others, Identify Good, and Be Present.  Ask your child to tell you more about what they learn each week!


Volunteer Registration

We hope you will consider being a volunteer at school this year in the classroom or as a field trip chaperone.  You must register as a volunteer EVERY YEAR. The volunteer system will be open daily for reactivation/registration.  Volunteers and volunteer applicants should direct their questions to the front office.

Reactivation for Continuing Volunteers

  • All continuing volunteers approved for the 2019-2020 school year MUST reactivate as a volunteer no later than 4:00 p.m. on October 31, 2019.  Reactivating volunteers may go to any WCPSS work site where they can register through by selecting the Community tab, and then selecting Volunteer Registration.  Current volunteers, who provide a valid email address, will receive an email 15 days and 30 days prior to the expiration of their volunteer status reminding them to reactivate. 

  • After October 31, 2019, individuals previously approved may not volunteer without a new criminal record check. 


New Volunteers for 2019-2020

  • All new volunteer applicants must register and have an approved criminal record check prior to engaging in volunteer work.  Volunteer applicants may go to any WCPSS work site and register through by selecting the Community tab, and then selecting Volunteer Registration.  

  • Applicants will be notified by email once their application has been approved or approved to drive. Applicants who are not approved will receive notice from Employee Relations.



Congratulations to Additional Students with Perfect Attendance

I wanted to recognize both Nathan Gibbons and Wyatt Blair who earned Perfect Attendance for the 2018-2019 school year!  They were recognized at school but were not included in the weekly email.  We are so proud of them and wanted to be sure they were acknowledged!


Warm Weather Clothes

We are in need of some warm weather-appropriate clothing for boys and girls to keep in our health room when students are in need.
