EOG PROCTORS NEEDED
May 31 and June 1: 9 - 12:30pm

We are in desperate need for proctors for the EOGs. Volunteers do NOT need to have background checks completed, as they are not in a one-on-one situation, nor supervisory, so if you were wanting to help, but realized you had never signed up to be a Wake County school volunteer, you are in luck!

Assistance is needed on May 31 and June 1 from 9am to 12:30pm.

If you can help, please contact Mrs. Tene Williams at twilliams10@wcpss.net.

Thank you!

CALLING ALL DADS!

May 31 - June 2: 8:40 - 9:15am

Last year our dads were a huge hit with the kids as they cheered them coming into the school, before the EOGs.  It was such a success, we would love to do it again!  If you have any free time before school on May 31st, June 1st or June 2nd, we would love to see you at the front entrance or the bus loop!  If you can't be there the entire time, that's OK too, just include that in the comment.  Thanks!

Clcik here for sign up.

PTA MEMBERSHIP & VOLUNTEER FORMS

Please consider joining the PTA this year. The PTA plays an important role in your child's school life, enabling them to participate in enriching experiences, get new technology, art, music, and PE equipment, and of course, new playground equipment. And signing up to become a volunteer doesn't mean you are commiting yourself to spending hours of your time at school! Volunteering incorporates everything from sending in supplies to providing assistance at events - just choose what is relevant to you, when the sign up forms are sent!
