Senior Portraits -TOMORROW!
Apparently many families have not received the letter regarding senior portraits.
If you haven't received the letter, please just come to get your portrait taken during the times listed below.

This year they are taking the pictures at Sanderson on July 22nd in the Auditorium
between 9:00am - 11am and 1pm - 3pm.

A flyer is attached that gives more information.

Girls will wear a drape for the senior photo so they need to wear a top that allows the straps to be moved off the shoulders.  They can change for additional photos. 

Guys will wear a tux so they ask them to wear a white t-shirt to wear under it.  They can change for other photos.

The costs listed are only for the sitting fees.  After the photos are taken, you will be notified when the proofs are ready and at that time, they will let you know the costs of the different photo packages.  

They will take cash, check or credit card.

If you can't make it on Tuesday, July 22, please contact Prestige to arrange a time.
If you have any questions, please contact Prestige at 800-343-5735 or 919-377-0026.

Attention New Bus Riders!
click to expand

The WCPSS Transportation Department will put new practices into place for the 2014-15 school year with the goal of improving bus service for families.

These changes will mainly affect new families moving into Wake County, and include:

  • New families may complete a request for service when they enroll for school.
  • New families must sign up approximately one month prior to the start of the school year to receive first day service.

If your child is currently not riding the bus, is eligible for transportation and wants to ride the bus next year, you may request transportation for them online starting May 30 at www.wcpss.net.

Sanderson (Traditional Calendar) deadline for signing up for bus service is Monday, July 21, 2014!

AP Summer assignments:

You need to consider these projects, not sketches.

 

1-      Two visits to a museum, gallery, or art exhibit. You must obtain a brochure or business card. Write a one-page analysis of your experience for each visit. Then create a work inspired by one of your visits. You must describe in at least a paragraph how your work incorporates what you saw without copying it (Minimum size 12”x 16”, 3 hour minimum)

 

 

2-      Write at least a paragraph about what you want to do for your concentration and why you chose it. There are examples of different concentrations in the description of the different portfolios on the AP website. Make sure you choose something that you have a true interest in. You will be creating 12 artworks based on this theme. You want to think deeper than just “landscapes” or “portraits”. These are too broad. Focus on a specific aspect of a broad subject such as: summer vacation landscapes in different seasons or portraits of friends exhibiting different emotions.

 

3-      Two finished drawings/designs/sculptures based on your concentration. (Minimum size 12”x 16”, 6 hour minimum for each.) You must have 4 compositional and 1 final sketch for each. Also write a brief statement about how each specifically relates to your concentration.

 

If you have any questions about any of these, please see me before the end of the year. You can also email me at: jmstevenson@wcpss.net during the summer, but I only check this email once a week. I will be traveling some over the summer and will not always have access to email. DO NOT wait until the week before school starts to do these!!! I will be able to tell by the lack of quality in your work. These works will be your first grades of the 1st term.

 

All works due to me the 1st day of school!!

Bus service for the 2014-15 school year

Please share with families new to WCPSS or families who will start riding the bus in 2014-15. 
Current bus riders do not need to take any action.

For Immediate Release | May 30, 2014

New practices begin today to provide better bus service

WCPSS will put new practices into place beginning today for the 2014-15 school year with the goal of improving yellow bus service for families.

Families new to Wake County enrolling in school and current families who will be first time users of bus service in 2014-15 will be required to request transportation service. The requests must be completed approximately one month before the start of school to receive first day service.

Cutoff dates for first day service

  • Year-round calendar schools regardless of track assignment must enroll and request bus service by June 6 to receive first day service.
  • Modified calendar schools must enroll and request bus service by June 25 to receive first day service.
  • Traditional calendar schools must enroll and request bus service by July 21 to receive first day service.

For families who are eligible for transportation and request services after the cutoff date, first day bus service is not guaranteed.  Requests received after these cut off dates will be processed in the order received. Transportation will make every effort to provide service using existing bus stops as quickly as possible.

Impact on families
Families currently enrolled in WCPSS who are using bus service and eligible for bus service next year will automatically be assigned transportation to their address of record and need take no action.

Families who want to ride the bus next year, are not current riders and are eligible for bus service next year should go to www.wcpss.net/busrider starting today and request transportation services.

Starting today, families new to WCPSS can request Transportation service as they enroll in school. They should enroll as soon as possible and request transportation before the cutoff dates listed above for their school calendar.

Why make this change?
Beginning the planning process with accurate ridership will help Transportation planners provide superior bus routing. This should provide families better bus service from the start of the school year. Routes for known riders will be set for the first day of school. Bus drivers will no longer have to wait at stops for families who don’t plan to use the service and will practice set routes to be ready for the first day of school. With superior routing, buses will travel less distance saving money on fuel and maintenance.
