“Attention to any student with an IEP or 504 plan who will be taking the ACT or an AP exam during the 2014-2015 school year who is interested in applying for test accommodations: Please see Ms. Heilman, office 149 in the Cherry Building, by November 3, 2014 to get the proper paperwork. The paperwork will then need to be filled out and returned to Ms. Heilman by November 14, 2014 in order to be considered for any ACT and college board approved accommodations to be used on the test.
If anyone is planning on taking the SAT this school year, and would like to apply for college board approved accommodations, please see Ms. Heilman before you register for the SAT. You must apply and provide documentation before being approved for any college board accommodations. Please see https://www.collegeboard.org/students-with-disabilities/eligibility for more information.”



All students have received their first quarter report cards.  Please speak with your student and create a plan for continued success for the second quarter.  We will be meeting in Advisor/Advisee groups this Friday to review the grades and goals your student has set in Naviance.

College interims are also coming back.  If your student is currently enrolled in a college level course, please ask them about their grade.  If they need assistance, please have them see Mr. Waldie, or Ms. Kilpatrick.  The professors have been very receptive to providing grades and meeting with our students during their office hours.  I am very proud of the maturity of our students in the college expectations.

Seniors who need additional foreign language credit (have taken level 1 but need level 2) will be taking the placement test at NCSU this THURSDAY directly following their first class.  Mr. Waldie will be taking them to the lab to complete this assessment so we can schedule them correctly next semester.

Congratulations to Ms. Baldwin and Mr. Burgess.  They presented at a conference in Virginia last week and came home with a plethora of great Science innovations to share with our students.

Take My Hand

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.

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.
