Hello Wilkesboro families!

We are excited to welcome you back to a brand new school year. We hope that you've enjoyed your summer and are ready to begin what promises to be a great adventure in all of our lives.

School Supply List

Please see our updated school supply lists for the fall. We realize you may not be able to get everything on the list, but please note that we will not be able to share supplies due to current health restrictions. It is very important for each student to have a pencil box/pouch to house their supplies. All supplies should be labeled with your child's name. If you need help getting supplies, please contact our school counselor Sara Carlton at 336-651-4353 or by email to carltons@wilkes.k12.nc.us. We look forward to seeing you back at school soon!

Remote Learning Survey

Hello Wilkesboro families! We are preparing for the start of school under Plan C where all students will learn remotely from home. If you have a child who attended WES for 2019-2020 or who will attend for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete this survey as soon as possible. We will use your feedback as we plan for the start of school. Thank you in advance for your help! Please click on the title of this article to access the survey.

2020-2021 School Year Information

Hello families!

We wanted to share some additional information about WCS' plans for the 2020-2021 school year. WCS has updated its 2020-2021 webpage with more information about Plan B (in school with reduced capacity of 50%), including a calendar of school days. You can find that information on our district webpage by following the link provided below.

In the Central District, generally students whose last names begin with A-J will come on A days while students whose last names begin with K-Z will come on B days. There are some exceptions, as we've worked to align with Wilkes Central High School, Central Wilkes Middle School, and other schools to make sure all siblings attend school on the same day. We are committed to making sure that all children in a family (regardless of last name and school) will attend school on the same day. Also if you need to request an adjustment due to child care needs, please let us know. We plan to inform every family of their assignment after August 1.

We Made It!

Thank you for all the love you showed us in Friday's packet pick up. We were so happy to see you all, and we appreciate the smiles, kind words, signs, honks, and happy faces. We are proud of you all -- students AND parents -- for your hard work during remote learning. We would like to thank Sweet Smiles for donating the ice cream treats that you received today.

Congratulations to our fifth grade class as they move on to middle school. We have enjoyed our years with you, and we wish you the best.

It's been a memorable year, and we are lucky to have a school family as special as ours. We will miss you, and we hope that you READ every day this summer. Make sure you fill out your summer reading log. Have a wonderful summer! WE love you!

P.S. If you ordered a yearbook and didn't receive it on Friday, please send me a message before Monday. We will check our records. We have a very limited number of extra yearbooks and we plan to sell them on Monday at 8:00. Please let us know immediately if you did not get yours. Have a safe summer!
