ELECTRONIC FLYER DELIVERY HAS STARTED! Wake County Public School System has launched a new electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar.” The paper flyers we have been sending home can now be sent electronically to your inbox. You may also choose to click the PeachJar button on our school website to view these e-flyers. Action is required for you to receive school flyers! Please visit peachjar.com to register. By registering, you will get electronic flyers delivered right to your inbox and you will stay informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events! This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.
The NC Department of Public Instruction released new school report cards. They are new because they feature a letter grade to indicate a school’s overall performance.
In order to keep parents informed, Wake County Schools has released the 2013-14 School Report Cards. The report card gives you information about the schools performance, teacher characteristics, school climate and leadership. You can find report cards for every school in Wake County on the Student Outcomes page on the Wake County website. Here is the link to Willow Springs 2013-14 Report Card.
Kindergarten registration will be held January 15, 2015 from 9:00-4:30 in the Media Center. Please bring: child’s certified birth certificate, proof of residence (power, gas or water bill, or lease/purchase agreement) and parent photo id. It is also helpful to bring current immunization records.
Congratulations to Clarke Glendenning, April's Star Award winner!
Single Subject Acceleration (SSA)
Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities. SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course. Click below for additional information.
