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 https://herecomesthebus.com/getting-started/ 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.
