School Supplies for 22-23

We will be providing school supplies for the 21-22 school year with the help of our PTA and Kirk of Kildaire. Each student needs to supply their own water bottle, earbuds, lunch box, and backpack (please label all items). Teachers will provide wish lists at Meet the Teacher. 


From the PTA: 


Hey parents, Hospitality is planning a back to school lunch for our teachers and staff on August 17th. Please take a look at the sign up genius and help us fill a few spots! Please deliver your items to school by August 16th. Thank you!

Back to School Teacher Lunch

Mrs. Nelson would like to do a welcome back lunch for teachers on August 17th.  This year's theme is baseball and the teachers are going to Bond Park for a wiffle ball game in the morning and back to school for lunch.  Hospitality will provide a hot dog lunch with peanuts, cracker jacks and gourmet popcorn for snacks.  Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!

Starting the  School Year Parent Cheat Sheet:



We will be receiving medication starting during Meet the Teacher. Please make sure you have your signed 1702 form when you bring in your child's medication. We are unable to take medication(s) without this form signed by the doctor.




Families can only walk to school if they have been assigned walker status by WCPSS. Families who are walking students to school may NOT park on Pond Street. In the 22-23 school year, you will be directed to carpool and will NOT be allowed to drop off. 


For families who use the bus service, please visit the WCPSS website for 22-23 bus information. You will receive route information on August 19th via email.  Here is the link 


Carpool families must use the carpool lane; no students may be picked up or dropped off in any other areas on campus. Carpool starts at 8:45 for drop off and pick-up starts at 3:45. All families will be assigned a carpool number. Please help your student memorize this number. You MUST have a carpool tag or we will ask to see your ID. Please hang the tag in your window daily. This is a change and will hopefully speed up carpool. 


Meal Information for the 22-23 School Year

Breakfast and Lunch Pricing

Breakfast and lunch will no longer be provided for free for the 22-23 school year. Students will need to pay for both. Breakfast will be $1.50  and lunch will be $3.00. If you need support, please follow this link to apply for meal benefits. 


With a MySchool Bucks account, paying for school meals is easy. Go to or call (855) 832-5226 to enroll. You'll need your child's NCWISE ID number, available in your registration materials or at your school. Once your account is established you may:

  • Securely deposit funds to your child's account

  • Check balances

  • Set spending limits




Our classroom teachers will be utilizing TalkingPoints this year as the main tool for teacher-parent communication. Here is a brief overview of the tool.

Please take a moment to download the app and follow this guideline on how to set up your account.

Parents can also change the language on TalkingPoint. Follow this guide to learn how to change the language.


Register to Volunteer

Volunteers play an important role in our school.  We are grateful to parents and community members who contribute their time and talents to supporting our students. In order to chaperone on field trips or work with students in small groups, you must be registered as a WCPSS volunteer. We ask all families who will be in our school to please register. This can be done by coming to school all summer between 9-2:00 to sign up. If you signed up last year, you will not have to do it again for the 22-23 school year. Please take the time to do this before school starts.


Sign- Up for Before and Afterschool for the 22-23 School Year

Please complete this form if you are interested in Before and After-School Care for next year. They have not yet shared the rates for next year. They will have a registration fee of $15.00, but we are not collecting that money yet.
