Dear Cougar Families:
Our second semester Meet the Teacher will be held virtually on Thursday, February 4. Teacher slides can be found at https://www.wcpss.net/domain/3755.
Please ask your students or see PowerSchool for your student's teacher names. All teachers will be available via Google Meet from 6:15-7:30pm to answer any questions. Your student will receive an email from each teacher with the Google code for this event. The schedule will be:
· 6:15-6:30 First Period
· 6:35-6:50 Second Period
· 6:55-7:10 Third Period
· 7:15-7:30 Fourth Period
On February 11, we will have our Virtual Curriculum Fair. This will be posted on our school's website at 9:00 a.m. and will give students and parents insight into courses offered in each department. It will remain posted and available for several weeks. This will be helpful in selecting classes for next school year. Counselors will be communicating via email with students about course registration for the 2021-2022 school year. Registration for classes will take place throughout the month of March.
Important: Complete a Meal Benefits Application by Feb. 26, 2021
Parents, please consider applying for meal benefits by Feb 26. For every student that turns in the free and reduced lunch application and qualifies, the school receives federal funds that benefit the student and teachers at the school. These funds provide additional teachers and staff for the school which means more services for students, especially students that are struggling in reading or math. These funds also are used for materials and supplies for students and teachers. These are valuable resources that teachers can use to improve student achievement.
Yes, meals will still be free for all students through June 2021 but we still need you to complete a meal benefits application so our school can be eligible for this extra funding next year. Information about applying for Meal Benefits for the 2020-21 school year can be found at www.wcpss.net/Page/1849 . Help our school continue to receive this funding by completing an application online at MySchoolApps.com. Paper applications can be requested by calling 919-588-3535.
That is all for today. Have a great evening!
