JYJ Counselor News

October 2015

Welcome Back

We are well into another exciting school year! This year is extra special since it is your child’s last year at JYJ and elementary school. I know that it may seem a little early to discuss middle school but I like to keep parents very much informed about the transition to middle school.


Throughout the year I will be sending out information regarding the next step (middle school). It is certainly NOT too early to begin thinking about middle school options. Last year we had students assigned to attend 19 different middle schools (there are lots of choices here)!


Here's a list of WCPSS magnet middle schools. If you are planning on continuing at a WCPSS magnet middle school, I highly encourage you to visit any school(s) that you are interested in. Below is the latest info I have on open house info, application info and application dates. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

WCPSS Leadership Academies (early application deadline)

For parents interested in applying to either the Wake Young Men's or Wake Young Women's Leadership Academies, please remember to submit your completed application, required recommendations and school records to the Leadership Academy you are applying to by December 2015 (final due date not given yet, but it most likely will be early December).

There are several school records needed for your application (report cards, EOG scores). Myself and Ms. Mozingo more than happy to make those copies for you. Please feel free to let us know if you need copies of your school records.

Recommendations from your child's current teacher and administrator are also needed.

***Please be mindful of the deadline (Dec 2015) when asking for references & records. The sooner, the better to contact JYJ staff for recommendations.
