There will be a Wake County College Fair at NC State University-McKimmon Center Sunday, September 21, 2014 from 2:00 P.M. to 4:30 P.M.
PTSA would like to thank our volunteers who helped with the welcome back breakfast for our teachers and staff. We'd like to extend a special thanks to the moms who stayed to help. This was a great way to kick off the new school year and the teachers and staff were very appreciative.
This is a message from the Wake County Public School System for families at traditional calendar schools who will ride the bus to school. With the new school year, bus locations may change based on the students on the route.
Bus stop locations will be posted online Monday, August 18 at www.wcpss.net/transportation Click the bus routes link.
Look for your school on this page and click the link to find the school’s bus routes. Find the intersection nearest your residence. Be at the stop 10 minutes prior to pick up.
Families that do not have access to the internet should check their bus routes with their school.
We encourage parents to review bus safety and their family bus plan with their children to get the new school year off to a great start

If you choose to participate in the College Redirection module, your name will be submitted to a "pool" from which North Carolina colleges and universities with open admissions slots can prospect. This service is provided during the later months of the application season to connect denied applicants with NC colleges and universities which still have open admission slots. The "pool" is open from April 1 through August 31, so why not jump in now? Participation is voluntary and is advantageous for both denied applicants and schools. The College Redirection module allows denied applicants who have not been accepted into their school of choice to be recruited by colleges they may not have considered; it allows NC colleges seeking to fill admissions openings to prospect from a pool of interested, qualified candidates. Click on the following link, which will lead you to CFNC, and all of the info you will need about the CFNC Redirection Pool. CFNC You must have an account on CFNC in order to participate in the College Redirection Pool.
