Important Transportation Updates and Procedure Changes
The Wake County Public School System has changed its procedures for arranging new bus service for students. The most important point is that parents of children who do not currently ride the bus need to go online to request transportation by July 21st to receive first day service at a traditional calendar school. Click here to read about the new procedures for requesting bus service (en español).
The school system has also changed some of its procedures for existing bus riders. One important change is that students who do not use transportation services for 10 consecutive days will be removed from routes. Families will need to request Transportation services using the online form to reactivate the student’s bus stop assignment. Click here to read the FAQ page.

WCPSS presents Parent Academy
The Wake County Public Schools System is excited to announce their first Parent Academy Catalog. The catalog contains a series of free skill-building classes, workshops, and educational events aimed at helping families learn to engage with the school system and contribute positively to their child’s academic and social success.
The Parent Academy is a Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) initiative designed to strengthen the relationship between parents/guardians and schools and to help parents navigate the school system. Research shows that students achieve more when parents are involved in their child’s education.
This is a partnership with a diverse team of WCPSS educators and local community agencies, organizations, businesses, schools, and faith-based institutions.
To learn more about workshop options and registration information, visit www.wcpss.net/parent-academy

Parents: Interested in Leading a Club in 2014-2015?
We are very interested in increasing our offering of clubs after school in 2014-2015. We are looking for parents and/or community members to lead them. We are open to all ideas, including math club, science club, Odyssey of the Mind, or cricket club. We already had Girl Power, a running club for girls, in the fall and the Running Rays, a running club for boys in the spring. We also have chorus with Ms. Long and chess club with Mrs. Allen. Please contact our assistant principal, Mr. Evans (email@example.com), if you are interested in leading a club.
Cedar Fork Club Photos!
Ms. Long wrote new lyrics to Kelly Clarkson's song, "Stronger" with a focus on encouraging students to do their best on the upcoming EOG assessments. Ms. Shrode and Ms. Long sang the new song at an assembly. Ms. Shrode then scripted and filmed a music video starring Cedar Fork students and staff. The film was first shown to students on May 17th. Thank you to all who participated in this great experience!
