Please keep in mind that traditional calendar schools start tomorrow. Bus arrival times in the morning and afternoon will probably change some since the bus drivers will be back to running 3+ routes each morning and afternoon. Please be patient and know that we are happy to help you the best that we can at the school with transportation questions, however, we are not in control of any of the bus decisions or arrival times.
You can keep up with bus delays or cancellations using the same link that we have available to us at the school: https://www.wcpss.net/Page/1907

PTA Meeting & Parent School Compact Input Session
You will learn about upcoming events, school needs, ways you can support our students, and provide valuable feedback on our Home School Compact. We will have a Spanish interpreter.
United Skates of America DRES Skate Party
Where; United Skates of America, 2901 Trawick Rd, Raleigh
Skate, roller blade, and skate mate rental are separate from the admission price.
Show your school spirit! Roller skate, have fun and support your school! A portion of the admission will go directly back to the school.
Open House/Curriculum Night- 1st-5th Grade
Since Kindergarten already went over all of this information with parents at their Meet The Teacher, this Open House event is for 1st Grade through 5th Grade.
Each teacher will hold two 40 minute sessions. This is not a floating event so please be here at the start of the sessions and plan to stay for the full session. If you have more than 2 children, determine which two teachers you will visit and reach out to the additional teachers to request a copy of their presentation or set up a conference with them.
Session #1 is from 4:30pm to 5:10pm
Session #2 is from 5:20pm to 6:00pm
While at the school, you can register to volunteer and join the PTA!
See you this Thursday!

Dismissal is from 1:00-1:30pm.
Students should not be dropped off out front of the school until 8:00am. We do not have staff on duty until 8:00am.
