Weekly Message for February 5, 2019

Hello Wakelon Families!  This is Ms. Cooper with the weekly message. 


Transportation: Our buses seem to be running smoothly now.  I hope you are noticing that they are arriving on time in the morning and afternoon.  If you have transportation concerns, please give us a call.  If we can’t answer your question, we will direct you to East Wake Transportation office. Please check the Here Comes the Bus link  daily to view where your child’s bus is located.


Kindergarten Kick-Off: It’s time for kindergarten registration for the 19-20 school year!  We will hold our kick-off event on Thursday, February 7.  The times are 8:30-10:00 and 4:30-6:00.  Please come out and register your child.  Refreshments will be served along with parting gifts for all students.  Please come out and join us!!! 


Dance: Our Watch DOG Dads in collaboration with our PTA is sponsoring a Mother/Son and Father/Daughter Dance on February 23 from 3:00-5:00.  Please join us for music, pictures, refreshments, and FUN! The cost is $5.00 for each adult attending.  Students are free.  We welcome aunts/uncles, grandparents or any significant male or female in a student’s life. 


Clubs: Clubs for students in 3rd-5th grade began last week.  All clubs will be held after school from 4:15-5:30 except Running club which is on Thursday mornings at 7:45. Parents, please make arrangements for your child to be picked up on time. 


Report Cards: Parents report cards were sent home on Friday.  Please review them and e-mail your child’s teachers if you have questions or concerns.  We also sent home letters for students who may be at-risk for retention based on current performance (first quarter and second quarter).  We just want you to be aware that your child is currently not meeting grade-level standards in reading and/or math.


Snacks:  Our students receive a fresh fruit and vegetable snack three days a week this month (Monday, Wednesday and Friday).  The snack menu for this week is as follows: Pink Grapefruit, Jazz Apple and Celery sticks with ranch.   Please encourage your child to participate in this healthy snack choice.

  • Middle of Year Awards Ceremony-February 8 (Invitation Only)
  • Early Release-February 15-Dismissal is at 1:15
