Welcome to WECHS
Hello WECHS’ families, this is your Principal, Lisa Cummings, calling with your weekly update.
Thank you to everyone who attended the PHS Meet the Teacher Night and PTSA Meeting last night. We had a great turnout and everyone enjoyed meeting the staff and purchasing sprit wear and scrubs.
Lifetouch will hold underclassmen school picture day next Friday, August 29th on both campuses. To pre-order, go to mylifetouch.com, enter the picture day ID (BW024088Q0), order and print the receipt to give to the photographer on picture day. Students received an informational flyer last week. Tux and drape for Seniors will be taken only on N. Campus. PHS Campus Seniors need to call the studio to schedule a time. Seniors must have a tux and drape photo to be included in the yearbook.
This week all students received a packet of information that needs to be completed and returned by Monday, August 25th. Thank you for your cooperation. We will reward the PULSE classes with 100% response rates by the deadline with a pizza party!
This Thursday, August 28th is Meet the Teacher Night on our Northern Campus. The program starts at 6:30 pm in Building E, room 204.
Please save the date for our PTSA Fall Picnic at Lake Wheeler on Saturday, October 18th, 11:00-4:00.
Monday, traditional calendar schools open and regular bus routes begin. Please see the bus stops here: http://www.wcpss.net/school-directory/bus-routes/583.html. Express bus routes will only run on days that traditional calendar schools are out. Students need to call the school, 919-212-5800 or Ms. Cummings 919-398-3451 if they are stranded. We will contact the Transportation Office to arrange pick up.
At dismissal, all WECHS students are shuttled to Enloe where they will disembark and then find the bus that takes them home. With over 90 buses running through Enloe, it is important that students pay attention and have a buddy who rides that bus. This can be a very confusing environment at first. Students should make sure they know their bus number (and route number) as route numbers are not usually posted on the buses.
Northern Campus carpool drivers are asked to arrive after 2:00 pm. This will eliminate the traffic jam and safety issues that are preventing the dismissal busses from loading.
Please be reminded that WCPSS will only run one N. Campus shuttle bus on early release days. This bus will leave campus around 11:30am. Students are asked to make other arrangements as to not miss afternoon college classes. The first early release day is Friday, September 5th. All PHS students will dismiss at 11:55am. Please contact me, Lisa Cummings, if you need assistance with the issue.
Please note these important dates:
Thursday, August 28: Northern Campus Meet the Teacher Night, 6:30-8:00pm, Building E, Room 204
Friday, August 29: Picture Day on both campuses (tux and drape for Seniors—N. Campus only)
Monday, September 1: Labor Day Holiday: WECHS and WTCC are both closed
Thursday, September 4: Junior/Senior Information Night, 6:30-8:00pm, PHS Campus
