Coffee and Grounds- We really need your help!
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, October 5th from 8:30-12:00 to help clean up the school grounds. Mulch has been ordered and members of the First Baptist Church will be here to help! We will be working on the front of the school. We will have coffee available as you work.
We could also use any rakes, shovels, and wheel barrels to assist with moving the mulch.
We are in need of pine straw. If you are able to donate bales please sign up here. Thanks for your support!
For the third consecutive year, WCPSS will partner with the Carolina Hurricanes to bring READvolution to all of our elementary schools and Power Play to all of our middle schools.
This year, the READvolution time frame will be between Thursday, October 3rd and Friday, Nov. 22. The challenge features both individual and school-wide components, as well as goals for each. Students who achieve the goal of reading 20 minutes per day throughout the time frame (for a total of 800 minutes) will receive TWO complimentary ticket vouchers to a Hurricanes home game.
The county-wide component of the challenge includes the tracking of books read collectively at the school site. Schools who report students reading at least 2,020 books will be entered into a drawing to attend a "Cool School Field Trip" at the PNC Arena to participate in fun activities, and hear from Hurricanes players in February 2020.
Upon reading a certain number of books, school-level prizes will include the following:
- 500 Hat Day
- 1,000 PJ Day
- 1,500 Sports Day
- 2,000 Extra Recess
- 2,500 Wacky Tacky Day
- 3,000 Teacher Swap
- 3,500 Chicken Dance with Mrs. Nelson
- 4,000 Bring a Board Game
- 4,500 Admin Sumo Wrestlers
- 5,000 Admin Kisses a Pig
To log reading hours, students will need to log into their wakeid at www.wakeid.wcpss.net. (See Below for your child’s login information). Once logged in students should click on the READvolution icon to begin entering their reading information.
