SAT Prep Course to be Offered
Wilkes County Schools will be offering a SAT prep course through Princeton Review. The course will help prepare students for the January SAT examination. The Princeton Review holds a notable reputation for helping students achieve higher scores on the SAT. If you and your student are interested, we will be holding an informational meeting on September 2, 2014 at the Wilkes County Schools' Stone Center. The meeting will begin at 6 pm and will require less than one hour of your time. For those unable to attend the meeting, flyers will be posted at each high school with the training details. This training is focused on students who are juniors and is an exciting opportunity for high school students planning on attending college. The session is limited to 50 students and will cost $150 for each child.
PowerSchool Parent Portal is an online resource that gives parents access to their children's homework assignments, grades, and more. All school districts in North Carolina have changed the student information system from NCWISE to PowerSchool. The new interface is more user-friendly and will give parents access to:
- Grades and attendance
- Test results
- Grade history
- Attendance history
- Email notifications that can include your child's grades and school announcements
- Teacher comments
- School bulletins
If you had a username and password last year, then you should still be able to access the Parent Portal. If you have forgotten your log in information, you may contact your child's school to assist you. Students new to the system will receive log in information at Open House or on the first day of school. Read more...
