ACT/ACT WorkKeys 

The ACT will be administered to all juniors on February 27, 2024.  Registration is not required. If students have an ACT-approved graphing calculator, they may bring it with them, though all math problems can be solved without a calculator, and the online test has an embedded calculator.  Additionally, select Seniors at Wakefield who are required to take the ACT WorkKeys Assessment  will test on February 27, 2024.  NCDPI requires that all students who are CTE Concentrators take the WorkKeys assessments their Senior year.  Seniors who achieved the highest ACT WorkKeys scores achieved higher college GPAs in their first year and were twice as likely to achieve a GPA of 3.0 or higher in their programs.  Prep sessions for WorkKeys will take place during PACK time.  Please reach out to Amy Russell (arrussell@wcpss.net) with any questions.

BOOSTERS:  Buy a Brick

Our booster club is collecting orders for the next installation of the bricks at the stadium entrance. Prices range from $100 to $250 depending upon the size of the brick and inscription. Bricks are a great way to commemorate a student, teacher, coach or team and become a permanent part of our school. The deadline to order for this school year is January 12th and bricks will be installed in February in time for Spring sports. 100% of the proceeds go to support Wakefield athletics and ordering instructions can be found out on the school website.
