Update for September 23, 2022
Students Enrolled in Health/PE this Semester: The Health/PE class has finally begun for students enrolled in it this semester. The teacher’s name is Jane House and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. This class is virtual and asynchronous, which means that students will not log in to live classes. Please be aware that this class is required for high school graduation and should be taken as seriously as other classes.
End of First Quarter (Progress reports went home today!): The first quarter of this semester ends on September 30. Students should be working with teachers to ensure that missing assignments or resubmissions are completed prior to this date. Students received printed progress reports today in all classes so that you are aware of their current grades. They should be attending Maverick Time any time a grade in a class is below 80%. Parents can view grades in PowerSchool at any time. If you need access, please contact our data manager, Mr. Caprio (firstname.lastname@example.org).
No School on Monday: Monday, September 26 is a teacher workday. There is no school for students and our offices will be closed.
Final Exams: Final exams are scheduled for December 15-21. This window is established by the state and is not flexible, therefore, students should make every effort to be in attendance during exams; make-ups will be offered during and after the window, but testing is not allowed to occur before the testing window. By state law, final exams count as 20% of the student’s final grade.
Student Council Book Drive: As you may have seen on the news, the state of Kentucky was recently hit with devastating floods. Letcher County, Kentucky was particularly hard-hit. In fact, the libraries of two of their elementary schools and one middle school were completely destroyed. For specific details about these schools, please watch this short video. As a result, our Student Council is sponsoring a book drive to help resupply those libraries. They will be accepting new and gently used books for students ages 4-14, starting on Monday, September 19 through Friday, September 30. If you have books at home that you no longer use, please consider donating them to this worthy cause. There will be collection boxes in all second period classrooms. Thanks to our Student Council for sponsoring such a worthy event!
From the WECIB PTSA
Why join the PTSA? When you join the WECIB PTSA you are joining the oldest child advocacy organization in the country. When we have a large population of our WECIB families support the PTSA and its mission the louder our voice when the NCPTA, Wake PTA Council, or local PTA/PTSA units advocate for our children and teachers. Joining the WECIB PTSA will also provide you with more opportunities to interact with teachers, staff, and other parents and their children. We are all neighbors and peers who share similar experiences, as a result friendships often develop through our connections. Finally, We want you to have a voice. Everyone has different talents and skills they can bring to the table. Parents provide us a connection between the school and the “outside world.” Your connections can help maintain the bond between the school and the greater community.

Parent/Guardians - $10.00

The PTSA wants to hear from you: Please complete the WECIB PTSA survey to tell us what you like to see from your school’s PTSA and/or to register your willingness to serve as a volunteer. Your voice matters!
Explore the Arts and Express Yourself: This year, WECIB students have an opportunity to express themselves and participate in PTSA’s Reflections. Tell us your version of what “SHOW YOUR VOICE” means to you through dance, a short film, a poem or story, an original song, a photo or visual work of art!
