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.

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you are interested in leading a club.

2014-2015 Single Subject Acceleration (SSA)
Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) allows students to accelerate beyond their assigned grade level in English/Language Arts OR Mathematics.
Parents may nominate students for this accelerative practice ONLY within specified nomination windows. Testing will ONLY occur during specified testing windows in the spring of 2014. Accelerative services will begin at the start of the 2014-2015 school year.

What makes Cedar Fork unique?
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!
