June 10th Paw Print

On behalf of the faculty and staff, we appreciate your partnership throughout the last school year.  It has not always been easy, but we have accomplished so much.  Your grace and flexibility were constant and your trust, unwavering!  For those who are moving on to other schools, you will be missed.  Best wishes to our new 6th graders.  For those who are returning in August, work is well underway for a smooth start to the 2021-2022 school year. I will reach out throughout the summer periodically.  Please continue to stay tuned to district communications.  We will resume weekly communications in August! For now, rest and relax!  Enjoy your family!  We all deserve it!

With heartfelt gratitude,

Dr. Gamble


End of Year Material Drop-Off for all VA students
Please drop off all materials to the bins in front of the school by Monday, June 14.  Bins will be out from 9:00-3:00.  We need items returned so we can assess what is needed for the start of next year.  Thank you!


Students Leaving  Wake County or Attending Private School

  • Students must return all assigned WCPSS equipment to their school on or before their last day of school.

Meet the Teacher Open House is Thursday, August 19
We are excited to schedule our Open House event to welcome the start of the 2021-2022 school year.  Please add Thursday, August 19 to your calendar.  All families will receive an email from your child’s teacher that morning.  We are planning to provide some type of event for both in-person and virtual students, but more information about the event itself will come out this summer.  For now, please mark your calendar and stay tuned!


2021-22 School Supply Lists
The grade level school supply list for next school year is posted on our website.

Free Meals for Students in 2021-2022
Breakfast and lunch will be available at no cost to students for the 2021-22 school year. While the district may be able to offer free meals to all students, it is very important for eligible parents to complete a meal benefits application because this data enables schools to obtain funding to provide other important educational resources to benefit


Parent Portal
Home Base gives parents and students access to real-time information including attendance and bus information. With Home Base, powered by PowerSchool application, everyone stays connected. Families with multiple students can also set up their accounts to view all of their students at one time, with one login. Please apply for access information by filling out the form and returning to your child’s school


Are You Planning A Move?
As we try and plan our class lists for next school year, it is very helpful if we know your child will not be attending Wake County Public Schools for next school year, please let Highcroft Elementary know when you have made that decision.  If you plan on going to a private school or moving out of the county, please fill out the attached Withdrawal form Withdrawal Form.doc.  You can put the last day of school, June 10th, as the withdrawal date.
