Good afternoon Wonderful Wakefield Eagle Families!  This is Principal Keech, with this week's announcements.  A copy of this transcript will be shared with our PTA and archived on our website under the Principal's Messages tab.


Open House and Tour Canceled for tomorrow (Tuesday, Jan. 9)

WES' Open House and Tours for prospective families has been canceled for tomorrow evening, Jan. 9th.  Families who wish to still tour our school may do so by contacting our school Data Manager for an appointment.


Weather Closures, Delays, Early Releases and Etc.:

We are beginning to come into that time of year in which WES could be closed, delayed or have an early release.  Please make sure that you are connected to the WCPSS emergency system by phone and are watching local media, the WCPSS website for possible weather updates, closures, delays or early release.


PTA Sponsored Creative Arts Grant and School Project:

With support from the United Arts Council of Raleigh & Wake County, along with our school's PTA, we are excited to be bringing Shannon Newby, a visual artist to Wakefield at the end of January/beginning of February. Shannon will work with our 4th and 5th grade students on a week long 3D Coral Reef Installation Sculpture that will be hung on completion in our school library for our school population to enjoy!


We are seeking enthusiastic parent/adult/community member volunteers to assist with various aspects of the project, including setup, student assistance, and clean-up. Your time will be invaluable in making this project a success!


If you are interested in contributing your time and energy to this wonderful initiative, please sign up for a volunteer spot through our sign-up genius here
That's all for now!!!! Goooooo Eagles!!!!
