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.

  • Middle of Year Awards Ceremony-February 8 (Invitation Only)
  • Early Release-February 15-Dismissal is at 1:15
  • No School-February 18
