Principal's Weekly Message

Weekly Messenger 07/16/15

Good afternoon Cougar Families – This is Mrs. Weddle, Principal of your Wake Forest Middle School with the second message of the school year.  If you are new to us, we welcome you to the WFMS family.   I’ve got some important information since my last phone message. 

First, students if you have accessed your schedule through PowerSchool, please know those schedules will change.  They are not your official schedule, they are what was run through the program.  We are in the process of balancing classes, reviewing schedules, making sure students are in the right courses, etc.  These will change throughout the summer and your official schedule will be mailed to you the week of August 10th.  If your schedule is changed, we will not revert to the ones you are seeing now.    

I learned yesterday that the Boys and Girls Club will be providing their own bus to pick up Club Members from our school.  Club members should go to the white Boys & Girls Club bus at the beginning of the bus line immediately after the afternoon bell.  Club parents who are interested in this service must call Jessica at the Boys and Girls Club.  This is not a WCPSS service and our school will have no input or influence on who gets to ride their bus.  WCPSS will not be providing transportation to any other location than the home stop for the first 30 days of school (i.e.—6 weeks).  

Families, if you have a change of address, make sure you bring in your proof of new address prior to July 22.  If you don’t, then your child is not guaranteed transportation for the first few days of school.  July 22 is the cutoff date because transportation will be finalizing their routes based upon the eligible students in the system.  Students who enroll or change addresses afterward, will have to be individually processed and this can take up to two weeks once school begins. 

As a reminder:

We will have a schedule walk through for students new to WFMS on Friday August 21st from 1-3 p.m.  This is a time for students to learn where there classes are located, buy PE shirts, and learn the school layout so they are comfortable on their first day.  Schedules will be mailed out the week prior.  Returning students should not come to the schedule walk through.  The first day of classes for all students is Monday August 24th.  School begins at 7:40 although students can arrive at 7:10.  Our school day ends at 2:25. 

Our Open House/PTSA meeting will be on September 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. Our first early release is September 4th and students are released from school at 11:55.

Please go to our website wfmiddleschool.com for information regarding school supplies, transportation, parent information, and much more.  A copy of this voicemail will also be on the website.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at (919) 554-8440 if you have any questions.

Principal's Weekly Message

Weekly Messenger 07/08/15

Good afternoon Cougar Families – This is Mrs. Weddle, Principal of your Wake Forest Middle School with the first message of the school year. We welcome all new cougar families and hope you have the best educational experience at WFMS. 

You are receiving this message because your phone number is linked to one of our students for the 2015-2016 school year.  If you do not have a child attending WFMS, please call us and let us know so we can delete your phone number from our system.

Periodically in the summer, I will send out voicemessengers with important information for the upcoming school year.  We will have a schedule walk through for students new to WFMS on Friday August 21st from 1-3 p.m.  This is a time for students to learn where there classes are located, buy PE shirts, and learn the school layout so they are comfortable on their first day.  Schedules will be mailed out the week prior.  Returning students should not come to the schedule walk through.  The first day of classes for all students is Monday August 24th.  School begins at 7:40 although students can arrive at 7:10.  Our school day ends at 2:25. 

Our Open House/PTSA meeting will be on September 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. Our first early release is September 4th and students are released from school at 11:55.

This year Transportation is continuing their process to provide better service to families of students who qualify for transportation.  All students have been assigned transportation based upon their home address.  If your child requires a stop different from your address, you must fill out an application.  This includes students going to the Boys and Girls Club afterschool.   Alternate stop requests will not be processed until after the first 30 days of school and there is no guarantee transportation will be provided.  This means parents are responsible for transporting their children to and from alternate addresses for the first 30 days of school.  If you have moved, we must have your address inputted into our system by July 20 for your child to have transportation set for the first day of school.  Any address changes after July 20th may result in a delay in getting your child assigned to a bus.  

Please go to our website wfmiddleschool.com for information regarding school supplies, transportation, parent information, and much more.  A copy of this voicemail will also be on the website.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at (919) 554-8440 if you have any questions.

Suggested School Supply Lists

2015-2016 Suggested School Supply List:

There is a printable document under our Documents tab.  

Please note, individual teachers may require additional supplies. This is a list to get you started as you hit those “Back to School” sales.

6th Grade

All supplies listed are for the year. Please replenish as needed. 

  • Loose Leaf Paper
  • Graph Paper
  • Blue or Black Pens
  • Red Pens
  • Pencils
  • Colored Pencils/Markers (Non Permanent – No Sharpies Allowed)
  • Highlighters
  • Sheet Protectors
  • 3x5 Index Cards
  • 5 single subject spiral notebooks or composition notebooks
  • Glue Sticks
  • Rolls of Transparent Tape
  • Paper Hole Reinforcers
  • Dividers
  • Portable Hole Punch
  • Pencil Sharpener with dome
  • Pencil Pouch (No Boxes)
  • Flash Drive
  • Ear buds or head phones (to plug into school computers)
  • Combination Lock for P.E.

What to store all of this in?
Students will be traveling from class-to-class and will not be able to visit their lockers between every class. Therefore, an organizational system needs to be established. Some examples of organization would be a large, sturdy 3-ring binder, several smaller individual binders for each class, or an accordion style folder system.


Take advantage of the back to school sales for the following items to be kept at home for students to complete homework, study for tests, and work on projects throughout the year.  Stock up on pencils, pens, paper, posterboard, tape, glue sticks, highlighters, construction paper, index cards, erasers, colored pencils, markers, crayons, notebooks, and folders.  Don’t forget a pencil sharpener, stapler, and hole punch.
 

7th Grade

All supplies listed are for the year. Please replenish as needed.  Also, 7th graders will be in the trailers. It would be beneficial to purchase a small portable umbrella or rain jacket to keep at school for rainy days.

  • Loose Leaf Paper
  • Graph Paper
  • Blue or Black Pens
  • Red Pens
  • Pencils
  • Colored Pencils
  • Highlighters
  • Markers (Non Permanent Only – No Sharpies)
  • 3x5 Index Cards
  • Single subject spiral notebooks or composition notebooks (red, yellow, blue, green)
  • Folder with 2 prongs and pockets (red, yellow, blue, green)
  • Tab Dividers
  • Glue Sticks
  • Rolls of Transparent Tape
  • Paper Hole Reinforcers
  • Pencil Sharpener with dome
  • Pencil Pouch (No Boxes)
  • Flash Drive
  • Ear buds or head phones (to plug into school computers)
  • Combination Lock for P.E.
  • Binders will most likely be requested. Please wait for teacher specification.

For students enrolled in Common Core I:  It would be beneficial but not mandatory to purchase a TI-84+ calculator. This practice will assist students' transition to high school. In addition, these calculators will be used by the students as they advance through their math courses in high school. We understand the purchase is an investment but students can use the calculator through their college years. Students who have previously purchased other versions of this type of calculator can still use them.  

Take advantage of the back to school sales for the following items to be kept at home for students to complete homework, study for tests, and work on projects throughout the year.  Stock up on pencils, pens, paper, posterboard, tape, glue sticks, highlighters, construction paper, index cards, erasers, colored pencils, markers, crayons, notebooks, and folders.  Don’t forget a pencil sharpener, stapler, and hole punch.
