This Friday is an Early Release.  Students who have classes at the Cherry Building will have all 4 classes and then lunch at the end of the day.  We will be dismissing at 12:00.  Fourth year students will have their high school class at NCSU on regular schedule, then complete their college courses.  Third year students who attend college classes in the morning will go to their college classes and we will transport them from Witherspoon to the Cherry building at 9:15 so they can attend their 3rd and 4th period classes.  Third year students who do not have afternoon classes at the Cherry building will be delivered to Witherspoon at 9:15 and returned to the Cherry building at 11:00.  Third year students who have college classes in the afternoon will remain at NCSU for their classes and then be picked up by their parents.


Athens is STILL RECRUITING GIRLS for a Freshman team.  There will be an interest meeting AT Athens High School this week.  Please contact Emily Smith the Head Volleyball Coach at Athens if interested.

I am Carlos McClaney, the Youth Outreach Chair of Reach Out And Touch (ROAT). Reach Out And Touch is a service organization founded on the campus of NC State. It is our mission to strengthen and meet the needs of the local community. This year, ROAT will continue our free homework help/tutoring program. The volunteer tutors are students at NC State. The sessions will be held on Saturdays from 11 am to 1 pm starting September 13th. The program will be held on the campus of NC State and will be free of charge. Students are asked to bring enough work for the two hour period. For more information, please contact Carlos McClaney at ROATyouth@gmail.com or Kierra Harper at ROATpresident@gmail.com.
This email includes detailed information about our tutoring program and registration. We will have several dates for tutoring this semester, including:
  • September 13
  • September 27
  • October 4
  • October 25
  • November 8
  • November 22
These sessions will be held in the First Year College Commons (2751 Cates Ave, Raleigh, NC 27607), unless otherwise noted.  We ask that the students arrive by 10:50 am so that we can get the most out of the two hour time period.
As far as registration goes, there is a form attached to this email in which we are requesting guardians fill out and turn in when they drop the student off.  In addition to that form, there is also an online registration portion. The link for that is provided below.
Thank you all for your interest in our program and helping us make our goal of strengthening the local community an attainable one. I look forward to working with all of you and your students.

Saturday Homework Help


We have begun an After School Assistance Program for our students.  In order to participate the students have their teacher sign them up for a spot as spaces are limited and this is a structured time, not a social time.  Mondays and Wednesdays are designated to Math and Science, Tuesdays and Thursdays are set aside for English and History.  Students who need time for groupwork may attend either day AFTER their teacher has signed them up in our form.  Students are NOT to remain after without being assigned by a staff member.  Activity buses run according to the routes posted.  We hope this assistance by a certified Math teacher will benefit all of our students academically.


All students received interim reports today for their High School classes (except Health).  Please review the grades with your student and help to create a plan for continuous success.  At Wake NCSU STEM ECHS we offer assistance during lunch daily based on our SMART lunch schedule, and after school Monday-Thursday through our Intervention Assistance program.  We ask that your student speak with the teacher about these support opportunities as we all work together.  Please sign and return the interims on Tuesday.

We can always use the help of volunteers.  In order to be a volunteer, you must register on campus at our school or another WCPSS school.  The registration closes Oct. 31 so please make a point to come out and sign up. If you were a volunteer last year you must be reactivated as a volunteer by October 31st, 2014 or another  criminal background check will have to be run which is costly for the system and makes the process much slower.  Thanks for your support.
