PTA MEMBERSHIIP & 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!

National PTA Names Wakefield Elementary
a 2016-2018 National PTA School of Excellence!
We are excited to announce that Wakefield Elementary has been named a National PTA School of Excellence! As a National PTA School of Excellence, Wakefield Elementary made significant progress to welcome and empower families to support student success and school improvements during the course of the 2015-2016 school year.
Wakefield Elementary joins an elite group of schools recognized by the National PTA for its partnership with families through PTA to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.
WES parents, some of you may not be aware that budget cuts are coming to our schools. According to the News & Observer article, our schools will be cleaned less often, teachers will have less money to buy instructional materials, and fewer teachers will be hired.
You can begin registering for carpool tags during the Wakefield Welcome Walk on Wednesday. If you can't attend that day, don't worry, as you can register at any time for new tags at the front office.
Bus stop information can be found on the district website. Please be certain that your child knows the bus route number.
If your child will not be riding the assigned bus, but will be in car pool, or riding a day care van, etc, please send this information in writing to the teacher on Monday, August 29, or as changes occur during the year. Students will go home as indicated each day unless the school receives a note or phone call to the office about a change.
Don't forget that you can set up a My School Bucks account and make paying for school breakfast and lunches easy! Go to My School Bucks and create an account or top up the funds to your existing account. You will need to know your child's student ID number to set up the account. You can also make prepayments at the cafeteria between 7:00 - 10:00am.
Cost of meals are as follows:-
Breakfast $1.25 (Reduced price: free)
