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. This is also how to confirm your child’s bus stop for next year.

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.

Harris Teeter Together in Education Program

Thanks to Harris Teeter’s Together in Education program our school PTA won an additional $100. Our PTA submitted a picture of one of the many things that the money from Harris Teeter Together in Education goes towards to enhance our school.  Below are the amounts our PTA made for the last 2 years and the number of participants.  Also our submission for the $100 promotion. Last year we also won $1000 in Dick’s Sporting Goods gift cards as a promotion. Please continue to show your Cougar pride by re-enrolling next year and spread the word to family and friends. They can also sign up using our code 7441. However, re-enrollment must done every new school year.
Thank you for all of the support!!

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!

Cafeteria Volunteers Needed

We are looking for parent volunteers to help in the cafeteria on June 1st & 2nd.  These are our big End of Grade (EOG) state testing days and all of our Teacher Assistants will be proctoring for classes on those days.  They will be unable to supervise classes in the cafeteria, therefore, all K-5 teachers will have to eat with their classes in the cafeteria.  This could mean NO break at all on those days for some teachers since we also do not have regular ‘Specials’ schedule either.  We are hoping some parents can help provide coverage in the cafeteria so that teachers can at least have a ‘duty free’ lunch on those days.  All lunchroom volunteers must be WCPSS registered volunteers.
Thanks!
