Parent Portal opens for Cary Elementary

Parents,

We are pleased to announce that WCPSS is opening the Home Base/ PowerSchool Parent Portal for all elementary schools. This portal is not only for transportation information. The Parent Portal provides parents access to real-time information. This will be the way to access your child(ren)s’ grades in MIDDLE SCHOOL, and will follow your child(ren) all through high school. You will also access your bus stop information through this parent portal from now on.

Please complete the “Application for Access” that was sent home with your child. You must hand deliver the application and present a photo ID to your child’s school. Then we will hand you the log-on information that is specific to your child.  Please email or call Susan Barrier at ncwise364@wcpss.net or 919.460.3455 extension 26749 if you have additional questions.

Another Great Year at Cary Elementary- Rod Stanton, Principal

It is hard to believe the end of another school year is upon us.  Things have gone by quickly and it is always exciting for me as I visit classrooms and see the wonderful growth in learning and maturity that has taken place in our students.

Thank you to all of our volunteers this year.  We enjoy having you here and you have been a big part of all the learning that has taken place.  A special thanks to all the parents, grandparents, and former Cary Elementary staff members who came to help proctor our recent End of Grade tests.  We’ll let you know about scores as soon as we have the results.    I’m very excited about all the hard work and learning that has taken place this year and continue to be proud to be the principal of our great school.

Congratulations to Mrs. Robin Smith and Margo Racine who will be retiring at the end of this school year.  Mrs. Smith is one of our kindergarten teachers and Mrs. Racine has been one of our reading intervention teachers.  Both ladies have done a lot for Cary Elementary and will certainly be missed.

Looking ahead:

–       Summer letters will be mailed to all Cary Elementary families in early August.  These letters will contain important dates and information for the start to the new 2017-18 school year.

–       Keep an eye on our school web site for dates and information.  School supply lists will also be posted soon.

–       Meet the Teacher will be Friday, August 25 from 11:00-1:00 for 1st – 5th grade students.  Class lists will be present at the start of the session.

–       Technology at Cary Elementary – we are excited to be adding more laptops and iPads to the great base of hardware we already have. With the help of our PTA and county grant our new machines will be arriving soon to be used in the upcoming school year.

 

Thanks to everyone for another great year at Cary Elementary!

Hello,

This is the TIE coordinator, Claire Green, at Cary Elementary number 7441.  Thank you so much for your stores generosity by contributing money for the enhancement of our public schools.

We use some of the money to stock books in our book stop. The children earn fake money through rewards for good behavior and bringing in their own books at home that they are no longer reading.
Then they can take the money into the book stop to spend on another book that they can keep as long as they want. The kids are always excited to come and so the books do go fast. We often go to

Dorcas or a used book store and buy books to keep the shelves well stocked. Thanks again for all of your support!
