Weekly Updates:

  • Welcome new families! You can visit our welcome website that was designed to be a guide for all incoming families during this crazy pandemic year. We will be updating it throughout the next few months as we receive more guidance on what the 2021-2022 school year will look like, so stay tuned! 

 

  • Spirit Wear Sale: Our PTSA spirit wear sale is now live and accepting orders through Sunday, March 14! All rising 6th-grade and Virtual Academy families will need to pick up their spirit wear orders on either: April 8th or 9th, 10AM-12PM OR 3-5PM. Plan B students have the option of having their items sent home through their 5th Period Teacher (students will receive their items the next time their cohort is in school on or after April 8). After this sale closes, you’ll have to wait until next school year. This is it for this school year! https://mooresquare.memberhub.store/store?category=SPIRIT%20WEAR.  

 

 

  • Intramurals: Intramurals for basketball began this week! Basketball is on Tuesdays and Soccer on Thursdays and they will continue each week through the middle of May. Intramurals will begin after school and run until 3:30. Parents need to pick up their student(s) at 3:30. There will not be any gameplay in either of the intramurals. We will work on skill development and skills be done on an individual basis,  there will be no group drills, to maintain social distancing. All students will be required to wear a face-covering at all times. Students are only allowed to attend intramurals if their cohort is in the school building. If you have any questions contact Mr. Scheck (nscheck@wcpss.net). 

 

  • Yearbook: You do not want to miss out on purchasing a yearbook to document this crazy pandemic year! Order online now! The deadline to purchase a yearbook is April 16th! There is no guarantee we will have some to purchase in person. The deadline to turn in your own portrait picture for the yearbook is March 5th. You must go to https://www.ybkplus.com/ and follow the directions. Use the parent email on file with the school. 

 

  • We need subs! Our district has recently launched a campaign to recruit substitute teachers. Our subs receive training, work flexible hours and earn bi-weekly pay and incentives based on the number of jobs they pick up. If you have an interest in supporting our schools and shaping bright futures, visit wcpss.net/subs to learn more,

 

  • Meals will be free for all students through June 2021. Breakfast and lunch will be available at no cost for all students. In addition, meals will continue to be served at curbside feeding sites listed at wcpss.net/food. Meals are limited to one breakfast and one lunch per student per day, and students do not need to enter their student ID to receive meals.
