WFHS Principal Update Week of March 18th

Good evening WFHS Students and Families,

We have one week until Spring Break, I hope everyone has a restful break. There will not be a parent message the weekend of March 24th.  The next message will be March, 31st.

Seniors – March 19th is the first date to pick up Graduation Regalia from Jostens during lunch. If a student is not able to be at school on March 19th a parent may come and pick up their student’s regalia. Parents will need to check in at the front office.

National Honor Society News

Letters inviting students to apply to the National Honor Society were handed out in Friday's, 3/15, second period class.  The deadline to turn in the completed application packet is Friday, 3/22 at 2:15PM.  In order for a student to be invited to apply they must have a 3.8 or higher cumulative weighted grade point average (GPA) and be a second semester sophomore, junior, or senior.  

Rising Seniors

North Carolina law requires all rising 12th graders to receive a meningococcal vaccine booster before starting 12th grade. The vaccination must be completed and current immunization records updated before the 24-25 school year begins.

Parents will need to provide a copy of their child’s immunization record showing proof that the meningococcal vaccine has been completed prior to the first day of school. 

Student Services News

Students were given their grade level course selection sheet, a copy of their credit detail sheet, and a copy of their teacher recommendations, during 2nd period on Monday 2/26. Our registration information is all posted on our website. Please sit down with your child and talk about what they should register forWFHS Registration

Juniors - The counselors will hold Junior Conferences throughout the month of March. This is your student's opportunity to select course requests for the 2024-2025 school year, discuss their future plans and meet their counselor about other topics that are important as they are preparing for their final year at Wake Forest High School! Please have your student choose their appointment time by clicking on their counselor's name below (this was emailed to student on 2/20). Counselors will not call students out of class, so please make sure they remember their time and share it in advance with their teacher. They should come prepared to their conference with a completed course selection sheet (8 primary course requests and 3-5 alternate choices).

****PLEASE NOTE: Students who do not make an appointment with their counselor will have their courses chosen for them.​​​****

Freshman and Sophomores will meet in groups during their 4th period class to select their classes for 24-25 school year. The calendar for registration is on the home page WFHS Registration

If a student is signing up for an AP course they MUST turn in an AP Agreement form to student services. This must be complete by the end of April.

Students will receive a course verification sheet in mid/late April to bring home and get signed by a parent. At that time they will be able to make any altercations to the schedule that was created with their counselor.
