Good afternoon Carroll Cougars! This is your principal Ms. Keech with this weeks announcements. A copy of this transcript will be shared through the Carroll Yahoo email group.
Block scheduling - Currently we are planning for your child's first day of block schedule beginning on Thursday of this week. Their LEAD teachers will hand out their block schedule to them during LEAD time on Wed and answering any questions about the process.
HOME BASE PARENT INFORMATION
Home Base is a statewide student information system that has replaced NC WISE and SPAN starting in the 2013-14 school year. Home Base gives parents and students access to real-time information including attendance, grades and assignments. With Home Base, powered by Pearson's PowerSchool application, everyone stays connected: Students stay on top of assignments, parents are able to participate in their child's progress, and teachers can instantly share information from their gradebook with parents and students. Families with multiple students can also set up their accounts to view all of their students at one time, with one login.
Why can't I access my SPAN account?
SPAN was linked to our old student information system (NCWISE). In July, the state of North Carolina moved to a new student information system called PowerSchool.
When will I Get access?
Home Base will be available starting Sept. 16th. Information about availability will be made through the Principal's Friday Phone message.
Forms and Instructions
Get a parent portal account
Each parent or guardian will have one account. If you have more than one child enrolled at WCPSS, you will receive an access ID for each child, which you add to your single account. If you had an active SPAN account and your child is attending the same school s/he attended last year, you will automatically receive access information from your child's school to create your Home Base Parent Portal once it opens. If your child is attending a different school this year (this includes students moving from 8th grade to 9th grade), then you will need to complete one of the following access forms: Parent Portal User Guide or view the technical support available in the Home Base application. If you have questions about the data in Home Base, please contact your child's teacher.
Dinner on the Lawn -Is this Thursday from 5-6. (There is still time to get your forms in. So fill those forms out and turn them in tomorrow to your child's lead teacher.) Immediately following will be a brief pTA meeting and parents will then be dismissed at 6:30 for our "Meet The Teacher" event. At the "Meet The Teacher" event parents will be walking their child's "C-day"- Friday schedule. Please have your child write down their first period teacher for you so that when you go, you can get a copy of their schedule.
Dress Code - Please review the dress code with your child. It is in their Agenda as well as was included in the parent packet that went home this summer. Some things that we are still seeing are shorts not meeting the fingertips and flip-flops/slides. Please make sure that your child is appropriately dressed before coming to school each day. Calendar events-Remember to continue to check our Google calendar for upcoming events, sports and activities. Questions for counselors - Also, remember if you are new to middle school or just don't understand something, please contact our counselors with any questions . They are here to serve our families. That's all for now! Goooo Cougars!
