Welcome Back Raven Families!

 

We are so excited to welcome you back to school for the 2021-2022 school year! Carpool students may begin unloading at 7:00. Students are tardy at 7:25. All students receive free breakfast and lunch this year!

 

Did you miss Open House? When you arrive at school, we will get you to your homeroom teacher who has your schedule.

 

Important School Information:

 

  • On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, students will participate in a device distribution and exchange at school. As part of this, all students will be given a “Device Agreement Form” that must be signed by their parent/guardian and returned to school. In addition, some students will exchange their current device, some students will be issued a device for the first time, and some students will keep their current supported device.
    • 6th grade should bring their WCPSS device and charger to school on Tuesday, 
    • 8th grade on Wednesday, and 
    • 7th grade on Thursday.
  • PE Uniforms are now available for purchase on our website, check here to purchase! If you would like to purchase with cash or check, have your child bring $15 to Coach James or Coach Curley this week!

The HOUSE SYSTEM IS COMING...

The house system will be rolled out this school year! Each house represents a specific character trait and students will work together to represent their trait with pride. Houses will meet throughout the year to participate in team bonding activities, work on character trait development and complete special projects together.




Students will also be earning points for their houses. Points are a way that we will be reinforcing the positive behavior that our amazing students show. There will even be a friendly house 

competition between all the houses to see who will be our eventual “House Champion” for the school year. Please take a moment and watch the video, here, that talks about the houses!  It’s going to be AMAZING!
