This is Principal Newkirk with the update for the week of December 19, 2018.
January 4 is our next First Friday event. Parents are invited to come into the building and get to know more about the work your child does daily. Have breakfast with your child, check out a book at the library, or go to the classroom and view the work your child has created in their Digital Portfolio. Parents are always welcome at Zebulon Elementary.
All students who came to last Friday’s Polar Express movie night received a free copy of The Polar Express. Students were given those books today. Check book bags to view your copy.
If you have a child who will be in kindergarten next year, it is important that you enroll him or her now. Principals use those early registration numbers to project how many teachers they will need for the next year. The more accurate those numbers are early on, the better able we are with staffing the building to capacity. Remind your friends and neighbors to register now too. June, July, and August is too late to register for kindergarten.
Lost and Found
We have lots of coats, jackets, and sweaters in our lost and found. Please stop by and pick up your lost clothing before the holiday break. All unclaimed items will be donated to charity this Friday!
WCPSS has a new digital homework resource to help you help your child. Currently, resources are housed for grade 3 and up. More resources will be coming soon. You can access the page here.
Wake Up and Read Book Drive
From January 5 – February 15 our school will be collecting gently used books geared towards birth – grade 12 for the Wake Up and Read Book Drive. We accept bi-lingual books as well as picture books and chapter books. Books can be dropped off in the lobby.
The December 11 Family Academy that was cancelled due to weather has been rescheduled for January 14. We will have pizza dinner at 5:30 and then go immediately to the workshop.
